I dont know if we should be happy or not.  Theyare only granting visas to people over 12 months.. that doesn't looks good for feb applicants

That'sso wrong. I mean cant think of anything.. why would they say that.. what are you thinking now??

I think, I know what it is, with 99.9% certainty. 🙂 They must have requested some confirmation of my documents from Russia. They could have sent off for this confirmation months ago and still waiting. Russian administration is notorious for being very very slooooow to answer such queries. And CO is under the instruction not to grant me PR until they get this confirmation. As easy as that... This is probably the reason why the other Russian applicant before me waited for 18 months. 

In this situation there is nothing, absolutely nothing I can do, but wait. 🙂

Hey Can someone answer my question here?
Are we entitled to any paid maternity leave while we are waiting for 489 -> 887 grant?
Has anyone tried?
 
Thanks.
What do you mean by paid maternity leave? If you mean, pay by your employer, that depends on your employer totally. If it is paid by your employer then there is no dependency on your visa irrespective of what visa are you in.

If you mean paid maternity leave from centerlink then you should be a PR holder when you deliver a baby.

Centrelink payments are changed from 1st of January 2019. I think you need to wait for 1 year if the PR is granted after 1st of January 2019 for the paid maternity leave from centrelink.

Thanks deftown. I am thinking along the same lines that whatever parental leave my employer offers should not be affected by the visa status.

I have one more question, I believe @Tpsk has discussed this in the past, Centrelink waiting time is for PR migrants who "arrived" in Australia (from offshore) after 1st January, 2019, or it applies to anyone who got PR granted after 1st January, 2019? Has anyone tested waters yet?

Thanks once again.

Hi @toibz! 🙂 Providing statutory declarations from you and also from your friend (the house owner) - very good idea. Just download a Stat Dec form the internet, write up a simple text, something like: "I, .... declare that I resided at this address at my friend's house [name] from [date] to [date]." Sign this declaration in front of a Justice of the Peace (they can be found in any library) or in front of a police officer or a pharmacist, whoever you can find from the list of eligible people. Your friend should do the same thing, make sure he puts the same dates in his statutory declaration. 🙂 

Also look for other proof of residency - car rego documents, letters from bank, doctor's receipts with your address on it, anything you can find. Also your bank statement can be a good proof of your living in the area, as all your shopping will be shown in your statements. You can filter or "white out" your bank statements if you do not want to show everything... Also great proof is your GP records, if you visited GP. Or a local dentist. 

5 weeks overseas shouldn't be a problem especially if it was your annual leave and you went away during the period of your continuous employment. If you feel worried about this 5 week period, you can compensate it by applying for your visa 5 weeks after you finished 2 years residency.

The worst consequences of delayed PR is, you are locked in an area where opportunities are extremely rare and where the uni students are still considered as international students and thereby end up paying sky rocketting fees. Such delay has never happened before. Cant we write to the immi that let them take their own sweet time to grant us our PRs but atleast remove us from the clutches of the above conditions.

Not mandatory, but as a rule 489 holders have one. At least, until they have Medicare access. 🙂 This is looked at very favourably by immigration, shows to them that you are responsible person. 🙂  It's a great documents to show as a proof of residency for 887 application.

No its not but always advisable to have insurance cover. You get rebate for premium paid in your tax return also

Yes, it was really beneficial for me. Especially if you are married and planning for kids 🙂
