887 Visa - What's the update?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,
really happy for those who’ve got their grant and hoping for best for those waiting.
Ive been a silient observer of this forum for a while. I got my visa 489 in feb last year from orana NSW. I moved to a regional town of Victoria (SEBASTOPOL 3356) in October last year and have been working full time aswell.
I know this has been asked again and again but will their be any problem once I complete my 2 years here and apply for 887. It’s  just something I’m worried about these days like living in regional and still not being eligible for 887.
also can i apply for visa 189 while on 489?
please if someone could clarify this issue for me.
thanks in advance

Yes you can
One of my friend did it
And he got 189 onshore from 489

Its only my personal opinion don't relay on it. I am on the same boat like you. We can't include our wife into 887, probably it cost only $385. For other application we can easily include our wife. 189,190,489 cost $3800 has option to include wife. Its always better include the member with the actual application. If you can't do that you can do it other way. I have contacted one migration agent they have replied as

Hi xxxxx

Thank you for your email

Presumably your 489 visa is still in effect, then you can apply for 489 Subsequent Entrant for your wife.

When she gets this 489 Subsequent Entrant visa approval, she can enter Australia BUT you cannot add her in the 887 visa.

You can lodge a new 887 visa with both applicants included OR wait until you get your 887 visa approved and then lodge onshore spouse visa

Regards

Hopefully it might be helpful.

Can I understand that you have already applied for 887 visa? If so, it is hard as your wife does not even has 489 visa yet. 

However, if you have a plan to apply for 887 visa with your wife after she get the 489 through the subsequent entrant, there is no problem at all.

That's why your agent suggest you either wait until she get 489 visa and then, apply new 887 visa including your wife or apply for spouse visa when your 887 visa is granted. 

The low visa cost is not an issue, as she will have to pay $3800 ono for 489 subsequent entrant, then pay extra $385 for 887. 

I wish my explanation helps you to understand the issue correctly.

Hi everyone,I'm new here and will soon apply for 887. I have a couple of questions here:

1. Someone has mentioned about passport size photo for the applicant that needs to be certified, does it mean our passport or another photo. If it's the latter,how do we have it certified?just stick on a piece of paper and have the pharmacist to certify it?

2. I scanned all my bank statements and they're really huge file of 10MB, Iheard files should be 5MB max. I'm not so good with programs so I'm not quite sure how to decrease the file sizes.

Hope to hear your advices guys.Thanks 😊           

You can covert the statement into pdf file and reduce it size

Hi , thanks for sharing this update.
I have applied the Bridging Visa B on February 11.
Dont know if I have to wait for it or just travel with Bridging Visa A.
I request all to share our plight with Julian Hill MP too and with your local MPs.

Please be careful! 😵 You cannot travel with Bridging Visa A only, they will not let yo back into Australia. Make sure you have 489 still valid or you have Bridging Visa B issued. Good luck! 🙂

Anyone can let me know how long it takes to get BVB from their current experience?

Unfortunately no; you would need to file the application first.

Hi @MPK, I don't think you can... You will be only allowed to attach documents by the system after your click 'submit' and pay for you application. 🙂
