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

Hi All, being on 489 visa can we visit New-Zealand or we need tourist visa?
For tourists visa do we have to get it done from our home country or from Australia?
At last, if we want to visit Europe from Australia(while on 489 visa), from where I will apply Schengen visa, Australia or home country?
if someone had similar experience and want to share their perspectives/thoughts please:)
Thanks for clicking on this message and apologies if it's not appropriate for this board.
If you're a US citizen or lived there previously and then obtained/applied for your PR in Australia, you can definitely provide help.
I'm preparing for my PR application which includes police check, and unfortunately I need to reapply for the State police check since the one I used before has expired. State of California requires "original" fingerprint form (FD 258) only. It would be fascinating if I can get one in Australia because this will make the process much faster than waiting for it to arrive from the states.
Do you happen to have some leftover or know anyone who might have the form? I'll happily provide compensation. Lots of time an money can be saved if I get this single sheet of card without waiting..
I'll look forward to hearing positive responses!
Thanks so much for reading. Have a wonderful one 🙂
