Recommended Posts

Hi Angos, My AFP doesnt state a expiry date. Do you know how long they consider as an AFP cert valid?

Even my AFP does not state the expiry but I googled it and found it is valid for 12 months. So thought not to take chance

Why PCC and how  you spect so much for AFP. How many people included in your application ?

I am not sure, it was mentioned in the beta website that you have to give PCC for all those countries where you have lived more then 12 months in last 16 years. We had our pcc done couple of months ago, photo vfs fees n  all came to $ 150 for 2 people. Spent $84 for afp before and same for new one.

12 months in the last 10 years, I think? 😉 🙂

I see what you mean, but it is not that easy... 🙂 I am not the admin for this spreadsheet, the lady who created it is. 🙂 

I also always hope that we can trust everyone who uses this tracker to be respectful and not write awful things on it and offend others. 

Fingers crossed, it will get better! 😄 💗

There are still some Personal comments in the Spreadsheet...

Guys PLEASE respect the diversity that we have here and keep Personal agenda to some other forum...

Guys, sorry to be off the topic. 

Does anyone know a bank / institution that would lend us money as a home loan while on the wait for 887?

Im pretty sure, this is something that most of us would want.

Regards,

toot

This is very unfortunate and there will always be people who are childish and unable to conduct themselves like adults in a dignified and respectful manner. The spreadsheet is an uncontrolled document and I assume we are placing faith in all members/applicants to use it correctly, however the risk will remain until the document is either controlled by one person; or if certain cells are locked or only have limited options to edit in cells, such as yes/no, or dates, etc or CO requested further docs yes/no. In that case individuals could ask each other what those requests were. These are only some suggestions and there would obviously need to be a volunteer who is an excel expert and willing to revamp the sheet.

Now I worry about mine as well. I didn't provide PCC from my own country as I thought it was provided when lodged 489 and I did not leave Australia since 489 was granted. Anyone recom in my case should I get one ? plx!

I was in same situation as you. I didn’t provide any PCC, and they didn’t ask for it. Maybe i got lucky or maybe they won’t ask for anyone. From my experience you should be ok.

I tried with couple of banks, until you get pr, they will just make it complicated. They will ask for 20 per cent deposit with other expenses plus you won’t get FHWG. You have to go thru foreign investment application which will cost 5k for no reason.

Please can anyone assist with the link to print statutory declaration form for CHANGES IN MY Child's face from passport date to medical examination date.

The form where I need attach pictures and get some to notarized on my behalf.

Thanks for a response.

Found this in the older posts:

My Baby look different from the passport!!!

  1. Download the form from this link  https://www.australia.gov.au/information-and-services/public-safety-and-law/statutory-declarations

  2. Select a few your baby's photos (4x6cm) from the passport date to the medical exam date then stick them at the form's footer.

  3. Get support from someone (not your relatives) to fill the form and do JP it.

  4. Example of the declare's content: "The passport's photo and the rest of other photographed are of the same child <your child full name> <DOB> <Address>"     🙂

Is it mandatory? Is it for medical examination or is it for immigration? I didn’t do it. Hope they won’t ask for it again.

Most of the time they asked for it as they find the baby photo is different from the passport. So to avoid any delay attach it. otherwise, if they ask it will delay in the result.

Quick question:

Those of you who have applied for 887 and received a bridging visa A. Does it say "no conditions" in your BVA or do some of you have conditions attached to your BVA? Thanks

Good evening all. Been reading through alot of your questions/replies. I applied back in June and haven't heard anything as of yet. I submitted all doc's myself and by reading through all your messages I think I may have forgotten stuff. All I sent in was a few pay slips and places where I've lived. Did everyone send in every payslip for the year of work needed. Also police check i never sent in either but looks like everyone else has. Any info would be great help. Thanks Luke

PS Congrats to people getting there grants through 🤟🤟🤟

Did you import your application to your IMMI account ?
