Recommended Posts

Hi russki i sent them whatsapp chats for a whole year photos of marriage as she is offshore we dont have shared bills whatsapp calls stat dec from her parents and from mine aswell that the relation ship is genuine stat declaration from me and her how we met and got married with our future plans and i also had form 888 where my cousins write that the relation ship is ongoing and we are married couple i submitted all of this i am curious they asked for all of the stuff again 

The best possible bet would be to get a stat declaration from some of your relatives/friends locally( if any) who have connection with you stating your marriage is genuine.  I had similar situation and I submitted a stat declaration from my sister and that did the trick.

Hm... Not sure what is going on... Are you sure the documents you attached are readable and good quality? 🙂 Call the service centre and ask what is going on. They are not awfully helpful, but still give it a go. Explain to them what you have just shared with us and ask why you are being asked for the same stuff again.

I would highly recommend re-visiting what you have already submitted as there is whole lot of checks happening these days and possibly something that would be missing. And as already suggested call them and see if that helps. We are reading and hearing about lot of cases these days because of which genuine cases also are investigated. All the best!

Guys I am so pissed off! I just got a call from immigration saying they were ready to grant my visa but they see that I was in Ireland for 3 months this year and that that is a ‘significant amount of time’ to be away so they needed a new police clearance from Ireland. What a joke!?! I got my pre-grant on January 9th, while I was out of the country, why didn’t they ask for this further information then? He also said that my AFP will expire on March 15th so I need to get it before then or I’ll have to get new AFPs. He has given me a different email address to send the Irish police clearance to. 

Timeline

applied 10/01/2018

first contact 29/07/2018 co Dat

pregrant 9/01/2018 co Kim 

request further info 5/02/2018 co Peter

Oh no, sorry mate. 😞 They ARE trying their best to delay grants, aren't they???? 

Well, just breathe, don't stress and give them what they asked for. 🙂 You are nearly there... I fully understand your feelings, being in the same boat. 

Good luck! 🍀

Do you know when will the election finish?

Apparently it will be 18 May'19. It only takes one day to vote and results are made public by the next day, not a long drawn out election

Proposed election time is April-May and by that time even Feb applicants will cross the 14 month timeline (provided they don't change the timeline) and department will then be dealing with hell lot of complaints. But yes you are right. At this point of time they are not touching any fresh files. Only those files where they have received complaints or 2nd timers.

Complaints?? But what if the complaint is raised anonymously ?? I mean while raising the complaint it is better to give reference or raise it anonymously??

I am not sure.. That is what I need to check with people who have raised the complaint. As I was thinking the same to raise one.

Hey everyone, I have a query on when I will be eligible for the 887 visa. I was granted a bridging visa for 489 in April 2017 and my 489 was granted in Jan 2018, between those months I was working (35 hrs per week) and staying in the regional area as per the 887 visa condition will my period be counted towards 887 while I was on bridging visa? Last year the immigration website stated I need to hold an eligible visa for 887 which bridging visa was not a part of, but currently, with the new website, there is nothing mention about holding an eligible visa for 2 years. It is getting very confusing so if anyone can please confirm about the above query it would be much appreciated, can't wait to be in the 887 visa world

Hey James, it looks like you have submitted enough documents to prove your claim. What I would do is list all the documents you have submitted till now and ask if CO has received? Further, I don’t see any harm asking CO clearly what else she’s expecting, this could clear confusion and save your time.
Good luck
