Going to Australia next week to validate my visa

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I am going to Australia next week to validate my PR. I have the visa label on my passport but is there anything else I need to be carrying with me (I will be carrying my grant letter too)? How long does the immigration take once I land in Australia? Please let me know.

 

Thanks.

Depends how busy it is when you land tbh. If a few flights come in close together you could be stood in a queue a while but I've never found it too bad. Just have your landing card filled out truthfully, declare food and any other thing if the card asks for it and you have it and you should be fine.

No you don't need anything else and like Snifter said immigration depends on how busy it is. If you're near the front of the plane and there are no other planes landed just before yours you can practically walk straight through. When I came over on my visa the time actually spent at the desk was probably less than when I've been there on holiday.

      G'day Mates,
      I started to fill in the 887 application on immi site.
      I was not prompted at an stage and was not asked to attach any document throughout the entire form.
      So the question is, Is the stage of attaching documents is after submitting?
      Although it says that this information will be provided by the application form, it is not :(
      whether to attach documents before or after you submit  
      Cheers!

      Hi all,   I am 21 years and 2 months old, currently pursuing bachelor of engineering at Adelaide University (third year). I am on a 489 Visa here. Its been 2 years since we have moved to Australia and we have satisfied all the conditions of the 489 visa. We will be applying for the 887 Visa now. I live with my parents and am financially dependent on them for my international tuition fees and other needs. Currently 887 visa processing time is ranging from 19 -22 months, I are bothered due to such a long processing time period. Because it's mentioned on DIBP website that A child who turns 23 while your application is being processed and who does not meet these ( dependent ) requirements cannot satisfy the criteria for this visa. Will there be any exception regarding the above highlighted portion since I was granted an eligible 489 visa as a family unit? Can anyone please clarify, your opinion will be highly appreciated.   Best Regards Hamza Khan
