Hello Everyone,

I have updated timeline of my application but its not there on excel sheet. i would appreciate if anyone can please share updated excel sheet where i can enter my details. 

i have applied 887 visa by myself on 16th April 2018 but no response yet, I have seen many of my friends got their case officer assigned in 5 months when they lodged their application in the end of 2017 year. I thought process of checking or reviewing 887 visa application will little bit faster since they have few new case officer but it turned out more slow. My partner visited overseas for 2 weeks during processing time but i did not inform DIBP via email or call because our file has not opened yet and we have our 489 visa still valid till the end of next year 2019.

Has anyone got info how much usually case officer taking time to check application, please share otherwise i am thinking to call them next month once 6 months time period finishes.

thanks

Current scenario 7 to 8 months to assign case officer

Hey all. I wrote to David Coleman, the Immigration Minister today. Minister@homeaffairs.gov.au

 

Hi David,

 
I heard you on SBS today. I thought I should contact you.
 
I, like many others, migrated to Australia on regional migration visa 489 in 2016. I had to stay in regional Australia for 2 years and work full time for 1 year. After fulfilling my obligation, I would be granted Subclass 887 Permanent Residency visa. 
 
I want to make you aware of delays in the processing. We are looking at 10-11 months, which can be nightmare if we were planning for another baby or hoping to join University for further education, or get a job which specifically requires Australian Permanent Residents for the job. I love regional Australia (Toowoomba in South-East Queensland where I live) and its got exactly I needed as far jobs, lifestyle, and kids education goes.
 
I believe I have fulfilled my obligations to Regional Australia, paid taxes, contributed to the system, became part of the Australian fabric, but these delays are holding me from achieving much more.
 
 I believe you will look into this issue and address this timely manner by hiring more staff to process 489 to 887 transfers in expedite manner.
 
Thank you.
 
Sincerely,

Hi the other one is me. Aswathi. My husband is the main applicant. And a small correction is that they asked my pcc from india i.e., pcc for dependant not main applicant.

Hi all,

Friend of mine is in tricky situation, so need some advice.

The family moved to Australia on State Sponsored 489 few months back. My friend, male, is secondary applicant, wife is the primary applicant. It turns out that Wife and Kids don't like here much, cannot adjust here well.

1) Is it possible my friend stays here alone and fullfils 489 requirements and files for 887 as primary applicant? Can he still get PR for himself and Wife and Kids (wife and kids want to move back to India, immediately)

2) Or My friend stays here and gets his own PR first, and then files his wife and kids's PR?

 

Any guidance is appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi@peace_at_heart

Not sure if they can completely stay away during the time period. I think they have to be here when the CO grants PR the visa though..

Its possible, if his wife and Kids can be here in Australia at the time of APPLICATION as well the DECISION of 887; technically they can be away in all other times....That means, He has to fulfill all the conditions, and is going to the primary 887 applicant, adding wife and kids as additional applicants....All the applicants has be in Australia at the time of application as well as decision of 887..
