    Are you sure 489 visa holders have access to Medicare? I always thought 489s do not have access to Medicare? Can you let me know your source?

    489 are not eligible for medicare unless if you have lodged the 887 visa and got the acknowledgement letter go to centrelink they will process the application for medicare and issue you the interim medicare card which will cover everything ...once you get your 887 grant they will automatically send you the permenant green color medicare card....

    The bank statements, payslips and vehicle rego will be enough proof to show your residency. As long as these documents have the first 10 months address on it there will be no problem. You can also show the address proof with a combination of these three documents, example as first three months bank statements, next 6 months payslips etc. The negative side is that the case officer need to check more documents and so take little bit extra time. Make sure you do the certified copy and then upload to the online system.

    Only 10 people are working for 887 visa and they are getting applications from all over the Australia. I guess out of 10, 2 or 3 people are/will go on the holiday or take the work off so the rest working people are 6 to 7 and that too 9 am to 4 pm working hours Monday to Friday including the break. Now, if there are no required documents or provided less or more documents available or have the all documents but the case offer couldn't identify in these cases I guess they even don't want to look at it and request the same or further documents. I have seen so many posts here about requesting the document which has already uploaded on to the system. Make sure you write the appropriate name of the file when you upload to the system so that the case offer can identify it properly.

    Good Luck.

    489 visa holders are not eligible for medicare. The positive side is they don't need to pay the medicare levy at the end of financial year. Once applied 887 visa you are eligible for medicare, they will issue the interim card with the full benefit as like other Australian people have it however it is valid only for 1 year. If you don't get visa decision in 1 year then they extend the period until the decision made for 887 visa application. The down side is now you have to pay the medicare levy regardless you use it or not. Nothing is free in Australia, specifically the "health system".

    Hey guys,

    Just a quick question, did anyone here get his 887 with only providing AFP clearance? Or its a mandatory to provide a Police clearance from our home countries too.

    For example, i havent been to my home country since i arrived to Australia 2 years ago. Do i still have to provide a police clearance certificate from my home country while applying for the 887?

     

    Thanks guys

    HI Kamolli,

     

    I did not submit my Overseas Police clearance and got the 887. I only provided AFP as even I was in the same boat and hadn't travelled.

    However if you are looking for a direct grant it is always recommended to submit the overseas clearance too, as it is totally upon the descretion of the case officer to demand it or not.

    Regards

    Thanks Razor,

    When did you submit your application? It is really confusing, cause i heard of some cases  who needed overseas Police clearance, and others who got their PR with only the AFP

    I had submitted my application in May 2016 and Received a Grant in May 2017, Just a few days left to complete the year.

    Yes it is confusing because it is on the discretion of the CO. But as recommended if you want a direct grant, always submit as many documents as possible, which includes overseas Police Clearance.

    Congratulations for the grant,

    I want to ask you something,

    What is "The employment gap" ?

    It means you were not worked for any period of time ?

    Thank you.

    It was not case officer. It was from skilled support team who does administration work for officers.

    In the form 80, in employment section, we must indicate how we have been financially supported since DOB. I just mentioned history of my employment not unemployment. For example,I should have started from DOB to 6YO; from date of primary school to date of high school; from date of high school to date of diploma, then university, etc...... 

    Actually in this section we indicate all employment and education history.

    I also had a gap between my last education and first employment and I updated it and mentioned that I was financially supported by my father. Its important for them to know how we were financially supported during our unemployment period. 

    They just attached to tables in pdf asking educational and employment history without any gap.

    This forum helped me a lot - I filled out the 1023 form asking to remove my parents from application in order not to pass medical assessment for them.
