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:)

i am planning to apply for subclass 887 in jan2019. i am in 489 family sponsored. i got 489 in dec2016 and started living in Melbourne 01/jan/2017. so i will finish 2 year stay in 01/01/2019. but my concern is, i been to India 4 times during this period. i just counted the total days i been outside Australia and its 107 days (01/01/16 to 01/01/19 ) and two year is 730 days. during these 4 vacations one was 2 months ( that made the major contribution to 107 ). is that a serious problem for applying 887?
