One of my friends has got his visa 189 last saturday. They always cry about immigration but still would not give visa who is waiting since 12 months but happy to bring someone from overseas within 3 months..yes my frnd applied in sep 18.. 

samething happened to someone we know , 189 visa granted within 5 months they just punched the first arrival and went back to dubai to work , they grant pr easily for people who never ever lived here before and doesen't even have the immediate intention of living here and make people like us who contribute to economy and regional states and put our future on hold and make us wait a lifetime to get the pr thats a sad thing.

Well.... that's a problem..... I didn't kept my phone bill..... and as for Utility bill.... for 1st year was included in rent..... so there is no utility bill for 1st year..... Ouch! I just thought bank transaction of 2 years might replace it..... For car rego is every 1 year..... not 3 months.... wonder if it will make any difference even if I upload it.

What do you think?

Hello everyone,

I will apply for 887 in Feb 2019 and am preparing documents now. I have a couple of questions that need your help.

1. when do I need to do the police check?

2. In 80 form, Question14 for identity document, do I need to put my Australian driver licence?

3. In 80 form, Question 17 for residential info for the last 10 years, there is not enough lines for my case, how can I do that? Can I put part of them in Part T in that form?

4. In 80 form, Question 19 for employment, how many years of emplyment history do I need to cover? for last 10 years, or 5 years? or something else?

 

Thanks a lot!

Jane

I did not got a direct grant because I forgot to answer 1 of the question in form 80 n did not upload all utility bills so they asked for residential proof.

I think the only thing that's different between those two docs is your work contract doesn't have your employment period in it.

What do you guys think about my proof of residency?

1. Optus mobile phone plan monthly bills (26 bills)

2. My statutory declaration stating I live with my sister/489 sponsor rent-free and all utility bills are in her name.

3. Sister/sponsor's statutory declaration stating I live with her rent-free and all utility bills are in her name.

4. Few random mails that have my name and address.

Hi guys,

I just realised that my family name and given name was swapped each othe in the application.

I have updated the notification of incorrect answers in the application in the immi account. 

Is this ok? Or I need to fill the form 1023 and upload it.

thank you.

wilson

I applied for 887 and I am currently in overseas. I didn't inform immigration about my travel plan. I hope you don't need to inform as well.

That might be the safest way to go.

I’m sponsored by my sister and we live in victoria. The designated areas in Vic basically cover the entire state. So, i hope this fact will play in my favor.

I got my eyes on you….. (Samuel L Jackson, Avengers)

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ApeHDAjEH60WFBNLeq14wvGzegiqGC4KD0U-OyH_w6U/edit#gid=0

 

What to upload???? I still do not understand!!

·       Tax doc, employment contract, superannuation, bank statement showing salary, pay slip, PayG/ Group Cert

·       AFP, Oversea Police cert (longest time to acquire), Military release cert

·       Passport

·       Notification of incorrect Answers

·       Marriage cert, lease agreement

·       Form 80, 1221

·       Bank statement for 2 years, Car Rego/ Utility/ Phone bill/ Internet bill

·       Drivers license Aussie

·       Rental agreement

·       Passport photo

·       Child - passport, birth cert, photo

·       Spouse- same as above, language is a letter from school/ IELTS

 

I hate filling in those forms! Especially notification of incorrect Answers

Go to your immi account à update details. See if there is an online version of it. It is a lot shorter and lesser stuff to fill in than those forms

 

Bridging Visa for 887 is like IPhone Plus minus the headphone jack

Once you have bridging, you will have some difficulty travelling oversea. All you get is a Medicare card. Other condition in 489 remains.

 

Parents appearing in health assessment Immi account

Family Unit ....... Family members......family unit...... Family members..... Riddle me this

In the 887 application and reference to form 1497i

1.     Accompanying / non-accompanying Family unit = Spouse and child

2.     Other family members = brothers, sisters, mistress, father, mother

Now you understand, go and prepare a notification of incorrect answers.

 

If you make your CO life difficult your LIFE will be backlogged

If you name your files like "%2467.pdf" or "14Nov2018.pdf", and the CO look at it, it will definitely be stash under the table. But I think the CO has stash too many that the processing period is getting longer and longer. Give it clear names like "Bank statement january.pdf" or "Marriage Cert.pdf". Also if your competitor has more documents uploaded than you do, your life will be backlogged.

 

My Baby look different from the passport!!!

1.     This is actually for 501 medical

2.     Download the form from this link  https://www.australia.gov.au/information-and-services/public-safety-and-law/statutory-declarations

3.     Select a few your baby's photos (4x6cm) from the passport date to the medical exam date then stick them at the form's footer.

4.     Get support from someone (not your relatives) to fill the form and do JP it.

5.     Example of the declare's content: "The passport's photo and the rest of other photographed are of the same child <your child full name> <DOB> <Address>".

 

I want to go for holiday, as my bridging Visa has not kick in.

Do you want to wait for 3 more months?

 

I am reluctant to submit a document due to “ (enter your reason)”

When everybody got their 887….. (Backstreet boys - show me the meaning of being lonely….)

 

Do I need to submit form 1221, F80, spouse English, oversea AFP, Local AFP?

Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes..... Now take a deep breath and repeat that 100 more times.

 

Can I have new friends?

You can have new friends unless they are going to become your wife, Facebook friend, tinder mate or you intend to kidnapped …cough cough….. adopt a child. Please do it after you get your 887.

 

My Agent told me not to submit

So far 3 to 4 cases I can think of agent's decision is wrong.

 

Proof of residency****

At least 2 types, Rental and bank statement showing expenditure for 2 years. Print and show it to us too. ^_^

 

Proof of employment****

Salary and employment letter, Superannuation statement, Tax document, notice of assessment

 

Spouse English

Get your University to write a letter as university course materials might not be recognize by Australia.

 

Relationship with Spouse

Marriage cert is not enough, need to prove continuing relationship
