    Can I know what is the reason for the rejection when you apply at the first time before ?

    The processing has gone very slow but I think in your case may be a month depending on CO.

    And also from July the processing will be slower due to 400 immigration staff getting redundancy packages.

    yes, you have to notify.

    Hi Joelito,

    For medicals, you go through this process only when case officer will request you to and for you to commence this step case officer will have to issue you with Hap ID's- which will have detailed information like blood, chest x-ray or other things which you go through at Visa medical.

    And also if you did your medicals 2 years ago when your existing visa was granted. There are chances that department probably won't ask you. However, I suggest you just wait for the Case officer.

    Hi Guys:biggrin:

     Just wanted to share with you my timeline:

    *Applied on the 10th of October.

    *First CO contacted me (Via Immiaccount) on the 14th Dec. Requesting extra Evidence of employment and Evidence of Functional English for my wife and a custody form order from my ex-wife because the one I had provided was expired - Form 1229  , all paperwork was submitted on the 20th  of  Dec. and the IELTS results as soon as we received it in January.

    *Second CO contacted me (Via E-mail) on the 3rd April requesting further evidence of employment  and IELTS Results, then I received another email asking to disregard the request for the IELTS as they had already received it. All further evidence was uploaded 3 days after.

    *Third CO  contacted me (Via Immiaccount) yesterday 26th of May requesting a correct contact number from my ex-wife, the Number was right, only that the country code was missing, I sent an email straightaway explaining that . 

    it's taking ages, butit seems to me that the Golden mail is getting closer, well, fingers crossed!!

    Hi everybody,

     

    I'm the main applicant that sep26 mentioned about. Yes, we got our grant letters today.

    First CO asked the documents for non-migrating family member who is my daughter from my previous relationship and further evidence for work requirement. And I provided reference letter as further evidence for work requirement. Documents that I was asked for non-migrating family member, I was not able to obtain any of them, because the kid lives in another country with her mom, and I had no contact with them for years. I called the department and they told me that I had to write and explanation letter about it that is exactly what I did. And then started waiting for another CO.

     

    Second CO asked me about exactly the same documents for non-migrating family member. Even though I did what I was advised by them, they asked me evidence of attempts to obtain those things. I provided email correspondences and additionally statutory declaration form that was telling them I have genuinely attempt. And we waited again and finally they satisfied about that and we got the golden email today.

     

     

       

    Amazing, Congrats!!!

    Hi guess 

    Yesterday I went to the Immi website that this is what is found, I attached the link if you can Check out the living requirement for dependent and minor it says 

     

    "Provide proof that your partner and your children lived in a specified or designated area for a period of 2 years "

     

    I was wondering  Did they amended the Eligibility requirements for the dependent. Because as far as I know this condition is  meant to be only for the primary applicant or did they made a mistake on the new website 

     

    your reply will be appreciated 

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You are right, it is a new requirement. Unfortunately, I can't apply for my wife. She came to Australia 11 months later than me. Is it possible that I apply for PR and then apply for partner visa (as I know it has a long processing time) for her? Is there any other options for us now? Since, all of the laws are against us, I am afraid of not applying now.

    Hi guys,

    I have asked from a lawyer and he checked the laws. He believes that you don't need to be worry because no change has happened in the law (for case officers) and it is possible to be an error in the website update which has happened several times before. BTW, I would appreciate if any of you get more information, share with us. Thanks.

    I read the legislation law 887.212
    It say only main applicant need to satisfy the Primary criteria

    However the Immigration person to whom I speak today told me otherwise

    I guess we should go with what the law say and we are fine Sam

    Hi ZarahK,

    Obviously, they have written this law (someone in Immi) but the case officers are important. For instance, according to this law, if a new baby comes few months before lodging, the whole family should stay 2 years more (a bug). As I know, before there was no law about second applicant as this document checklist shows and lawyer confirms it:

    https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/887-/Skilled-Regional-visa-(subclass-887)-document-checklist

    In residence requirement, it says: 

    • Evidence that you have lived in a specified regional area for at least two years as the holder of an eligible visa prior to lodging this application.
    • Evidence that each dependent who is also an applicant for this visa has complied with the conditions attached to their visa while in Australia. It doesn't say that second also should stay 2 years.

    BTW, when can you apply for 887 visa? Do you know that what happen if our 887 visa refuse? Do we back to 489 visa? Would you please give me the contact number of Immi? Thanks.
