For 489/887 holders.

Your PR is Guaranteed as long as you fulfill criteria

Live and work in regional area which could be in any postcode given on your grant letter.It is not compulsory to live&work in the region sponsored you, if you don’t find work or don’t like living there simply move to other regional area you feel comfortable.
No need any kind of release letter.

You need to live in regional at least two years prior to lodging 887

52 weeks full time work minimum of 35 hours/week is required, this could be in any occupation whatsoever no restriction at all.

Even 52 weeks work could be over the period of 4 years in case you don’t find a stable job no problem as long as you can prove it. Doesn’t has to be in consecutive one year.

If you don’t even find work over the length of 4 years your 489 visa could be extended to meet 887 requirements.

While processing 887 applications COs are only concerned of 2 main things.

You lived at least 2 years in regional postcodes and worked there at least 12 months

You must have to have genuine and strong evidence to prove above criteria . If they’re not sure or satisfied it’s worth and HIGHLY recommended staying/working more until required before applying 887. Because once you hit apply button you CAN’T change anything,unless you withdraw.


Good Luck to everyone.

Yes I have asked for further information and if they can share the grant thing so that at least it can be validated. I am in a same boat of frustration and surprise that how they can leave Jan and Feb applicant and issuing PR for March and April.

don't want to spread rumours but I was speaking to one of my friend and he is doing his MARA course. he confirmed me that one of his friend got direct grant and he filed in April last year. he filed the case through MARA agent (not sure how much that affects the outcome). He was 100% sure and told me the name of his friend and was ready to show me the letter also.

Even my friend was ready to bet for $1000 about the grant. He was too sure that his friend got the direct grant applied in April last year. He was 100% sure.

Guys,

Please let me ask this question for the 101th time. I know this has been repeated.

I need to go back to my home country for couple of weeks : My 489 visa is still valid and bridging visa isnt activated.

Do I have to do anything? Im taking the flight today.

Regards,

toot

Not sure what needs to be done. Calling immigration wont help as they say you are still under time frame.

Dont fall prey to such things. People take advantage of our desparation. Beware. This could be a marketing strategy to make u believe that applying via agents is more safer.

Hi @toot mate, as you are already flying out, I think it does not make much sense telling immigration  - they will automatically know you are out of the country, as their records are connected to border passport control. 🙂 But make sure you call them up upon return, it will be a good idea to let them know you are back onshore, make sure they note it in your file. 

Have a good trip! ✈️🤗

@toot and also make sure your 489 is still valid when you get back to Australia.

Have a safe flight and enjoy 🙂

You do not need to do anything till your 489 is active...any movement/travel done in between gets automatically recorded when you travel and your passport is scanned. Safe travels....enjoy!!
