My friend got the 489 yesterday, he said he applied in 1st week of August 2018.

All the other visa types, other than 887 are moving smoothly. Its just us facing the brunt....

It is true... It is because we are unfortunately not subject to priority processing, but 489 applicants are... 🙂

I’m sure feb applicants will get feedback on the day they applied last year. Whether it’s a grant or requesting for more docs.

Hi guys, I have been reading this page sometime now and I understand the frustration everyone is going through.  I know I am also going to join all of you soon once I submit the application. However, just want to let you all know my situation and then look for some views.

I am still under 489 and have been doing a permanent good job almost now close to 2 years. It took for me two months to found a job and since then I am working full time and job is alright, pay is ok etc. 

But still I want to move to Melbourne (regional areas) as soon as I submit my application because I have a job offer there. Do I need to inform Immi that I am moving or just updating address in my Immi account is sufficient? what if I maintain both address? any idea?

I suppose you mean regional VIC. Updating your address in immi after moving is enough. Remember, you can't live in Melbourne uder your 489 visa (check your visa's post codes conditions). I haven't experienced your final question so I can't advise.

Cheers...

Possible source of outsourcing our visa processing. They might had been awarded a contract to process our visa therefore the immi team doesn’t know anything.

I see! 🙂  I reckon, it would take a lot longer for the actual external processing to commence... They are only at tendering stage now. Imagine, how long it may take to evaluate tenders and then teach the new contractor to perform the tasks. I'd say, the reason may be they are understaffed during holiday period and were under pressure from refugee visas. I have a feeling it will pick up after January. I just feel it, not sure why. 😄

Is Adelaide postcodes included to your visa grant notification ? If included you can move to there by own risk 😉

My son, 15 yrs old, still on 489. Can I send him to my brother.who is in Melbourne for his year 11 education. Does this 489 visa allow that? Are there any issues that I may face in such a case? I have already applied for 887 in April 2018, and waiting for the grant. Pls advise.

Thanks guys for well wishes, it is so nice of you. 🙂 Yes, the Department have asked for something I never expected. Even the lawyer I hired today never had such situation before. He said we would fight for grant but no guarantees. It is very weird how the Immigration treated my case from the very beginning. 

But let's concentrate on moving forward. The queue is starting to move and it's great news! 🙂 Yesterday my friend also got granted 489! 

Hi russki just wanted to know the document they asked is it for any of us they will ask too and is it too hard to provide that document .. I m very scared please help..

😄 Please do not be scared at all because of my case!!!! My situation is very unique (in not a nice way) and I am sure you are not in danger of being in my shoes. 🙂 

What they request has nothing to do with the actual visa, but more with the right to take the child out of the country while I am a single parent to this child. So, no need to panic!!! 🙂  All good...

My life cycle (don’t know about others) ... ... ...

April: Problem started (after applying 887),

May: Too early to expect grant,

June: End of the financial year - grant quota over,

July: Beginning of new financial year,

August: New immigration rules apply,

September: Processing time increased further,

October: Gossip about existing visa conditions, 

November: Hopefully, will get some news next month,

December: Holidays...holidays and holidays - no expectation,

January(next year): Hopefully, immi will speed up (but in reality, as it was),

February(next year): Complain ..... complain and complain. You will be loser if you’re not complaining,

March (next year): Hopefully, will get some good news,

April (next year): Oh shit! One year gone still expecting some good news from immi. 🤪🤪🤪

If it is written on your visa that you can work in any regional  area, then I think you can move. One of friend got 489 visa from northern inland NSW and moved to Adelaide. He got his PR. Before you move you have to take NOC from your sponsoring  authority. However its always recommended that you should stay in the region where you got your 489 visa because they can change the rule any time which will  affect your 887 visa.

You cannot send your son in melbourn while you are in 489 visa or bridging visa after applying for 887 visa. In 489 visa we have to live in regional area or the area stated in our visa. As like main applicant depandents has to comply with visa condition.

Is that right? Coz I had read somewhere that conditions are applicable to the main applicant only! Any inputs, anyone? I agree to your point that on 489 we have to live, work, n study in regional area only, but does that apply to secondary?
