    Just a quick a question, your ielts is the same that you submitted for 489 OR it's a recent one ?

    Hi all,

    I stayed during 2 weeks at hostel when I arrived in Australia. I have been in the regional area from the first day until now. I want to know that whether email of booking hostel for my first 2 weeks is acceptable or you think it would be better that I apply 2 weeks later? Thanks.

    Best,

    Sam

    You don't have to wait anymore if you got your booking receipts please attached with your file but the hostel should be in your regional list.

    Thank you!

    I also use my wife's ielts the same I use for 489 and according to my case officer it's only valid for a year!!! I all ready got granted my 887 last week but I had to pay my wife's ielts charges which is $4800!!! 

    I don't know why they asked me for that 

    I requested them that I use the same which I use for 489 and it should be valid but the case officer was not agreed and my wife was heavily pregnant so I did not had any option unless pay for ielts!!! 

    I think it's unfair to me!!

    Do you have an agent? Please check your emails daily..even spam n junk mail. A friend of ours missed the email from a case officer and it created alot of issues.

    Hello Everybody.

    I applied on 10th March, 2017 for 887. I got a CO today asking for "Australian Federal Police Certificate - Complete Disclosure" for my wife and myself. I have already attached the police clearance certificates on the day i applied.

    Whatever, i am little bit confused, National Police Check and Australian Federal Police clearance certificate are the same or different police checks ?? 

    Please help me with this. 

    Thanks.

    Congratulation for your Permanent Residency visa,

    I think I have a similarity case with you. My 489 visa was granted on 11 Dec 2015 and 2 weeks later I got a full time job at one of the resort in Wolgan Valley NSW ( I live in Resort Accommodation). I move to Northern Territory in June 2016 for another full time job in one of the iconic resort in Central Australia ( Live in Resort accommodation, 450 km from Alice Spring). On December 2016, I got a full time job again from one of Resort in Watarraka National Park (650 Km from Alice Spring and The Resort provide Accommodation for free)

    I think I have no problem at all with my proof of residency when I lodge my 887 visa on December 29017 as I just got lease agreement from these resorts.

    Maybe next week I want to move again to Kimberley Regional Area as I already got another full time job offer from one of the resort in this area.

    Not sure as I have been living in Alice Springs for nearly 4 years. But it sounds ok to me. On the top of you lease agreement put some bills. My lease agreements were not enough and the CO asked for bills.

    She got average 4.5 and that's what we needed .. if your wife's ielts is more than a year old don't waste time book and ielts again so you don't have any issue afterwords...

    All the electricity and water bills are paid by my employers. I just have my mobile phone bills, Bank Statement and Host Plus Statements coming to the address when I work in various resorts.

    Is it enough ?

    What bills that you bring to your CO ?

    Yes they are both different mate!! 

    Call AFP and ask them they will be able to explain you the difference.. we need complete disclosure for immigration.. 

    so you will need to apply for that one.. 

    also, as soon as you get it make sure you attached it on immi account and click on submit..
