Hello everyone. Can somebody here enlighten me please. Is it alright for me to go home to my country while my application is still pending and I am on a bridging visa? I was intending to just wait until the decision for my 887 application comes but it's been taking too long and who knows how long I still have to keep waiting. I  have been in Australia for 3 years straight and I am dying to see my family. What can I do? Thank you

Please be careful, apply for BVB (Bridging Visa B) before you travel, otherwise you can't get back to Australia. 🙂

you can travel oversea w/o informing them or getting BVB B as long as your 489 is still effect. when 489 is expired, then the BVB A will be in effect.  in that case, you need to get BVB B to travel out. 

just notice you that, during the time you are away from Australia, if the CO get you the visa, they will give you the notice! maybe, it will be pre-grant... something. then you have to go back and wait for times to get the grant 🙂 

hope it helps you out

cheers

Hi, from the news and from my agent. Though we are not sure after this May if Labour or Liberal  will get in.  Scott Morison executes and continues Petter Dutton's immigration policy , they don't want more intakes, but can accept in regional areas, but without a clear and practical provision outcome yet. 

187, 887 both are on the edge of innovations. Low volumn means that they are ready to update a new one, like 457 to be replaced by 482, 482 processing time is light's speed, but 457 now snails.

Above is nothing but just my collection from my agent, so true or not  could not be secured, and not for any debating purpose.

so you reckon after this May, the processing time for 887 is even more slower and slower?

If someone watch the news closely thy will agree with me at present Dutton's Department has no KPI fixed ,means CO can take time to decide till he s satisfied its not time bond only quality...so we need to wait.

187 is not the same as 887 each has is own criteria 489 is linked to 887 and 457 linked to 186 so there is no where that they can get rid of 887 visa as they r isuing more 489s

I am currently on 489 visa. However the jobs I have are casual jobs but have been consistently getting up to 40 hours weekly from the two jobs. Can I use these two jobs to claim evidence of 1 year work not withstanding that employment mode written on my contract letter is casual?

I am concerned because it is not written full time or part time on my letters

Hi Queening

It doesn't matter. As long as you had weekly over 35 hours in total and receiving the current amount of wage, you should be fine.

Hello All, 

It will be my turn to apply 887 next week and would like to ask for advise from all the experts here 🙂

Sorry if these questions has been answered before  but do I need to certify all my payslips (1 year working experience) and also utilities bills before I upload to IMMI?

My payslips and utilities bills are online so I would guess I need to print it out and get it certified if so.

Thank you all.

Hi Friends,

I have applied for 887 on 18.02.2019 from Tasmania and uploaded all Docs on 21.02.2019. Also applied for Medicare on 22.02.2019. Can any body update the details in the Spreadsheet please. Originally from India. I will continue to share my journey. 

Our 489 is valid till Nov 2020 but as you know we have Got Bridging Visa A.  Joel, At above the page it has been mentioned that for travel to home country we have to apply for Bridging Visa B.  I am not getting it, could you please explain it again. "you can travel oversea w/o informing them or getting BVB B as long as your 489 is still effect." 

Thanks Team.

You can travel overseas freely as long as your 489 is valid for duration of your journey and on the day of return to Australia. 🙂

As soon as 489 expires,  your bridging visa A comes into effect automatically. It allows you stay in Australia lawfully,  but does not allow travel. To travel apply for bridging visa B. 🙂
