887 Visa - What's the update?

Recommended Posts

Few days back I write to Global Feedback Unit that it's more than a year now after I applied for 887 and they replied - 

The Department has received feedback from an anonymous source.

 In accordance with the Department’s Client Feedback Policy, the feedback will be recorded and referred to the relevant business area for information.

 Departmental records indicate that your application is still under consideration.

 I have referred your feedback to the skilled regional visa management team for information. Please continue to monitor your ImmiAccount for updates, requests for further information and/or an application outcome. In the event that your personal situation changes, please contact the Department via your ImmiAccount.

 I have now closed this feedback case.

What does that mean?

😄 😄 I think, I can translate it for you into "human" language: 

Global feedback guys told case officers that you'd complained. They also consider this complaint closed and will not look into it any more. "Just wait" is their answer, your visa will come in its own time. 🙂 😄

Means it will hardly push a CO to expedite the case??

Not necessarily. The CO quite possibly will look at the case and if there is nothing outstanding, the grant will come. 🙂 

It is just the Global Feedback Unit are saying, they finished with this complaint, forwarded it, and it is now up to processing team.

Sometimes it's so depressing and suffocating to live like that. We are neither IN nor OUT. Can not buy own house, can not expand business. Whatever plans we make, stuck at Visa condition/ uncertainty. Surprisingly, visa 887 is not in priority list means, people living ONSHORE, contributing in community, want to settle in regional areas are not priority but people sitting OFFSHORE are on priority.

Travelling and Living are different.

Unless stated specifically, All your living restrictions on 489 Visa applies to the bridging visa. 

If your 489 is still valid, Bridging visa isnt active.

But are we eligible for medi card?

You are right. 🙂 Awfully frustrating... Just a little read about all of us on bridging visas:

Hello All - i am following this forum for sometime and have to lodge my 887 in few days; we decided (as family) to see MARA consultant for the same as somehow don't want to miss out on any documentation resulting in any further delay as my daughter is in year 12th and i am hoping that i get PR before she starts her university next year. Though most of you would be aware of appended information but i still thought of sharing the same which i got after having a detailed discussion with my consultant and as per him:

1. Time frame to get visa is 9-12 months

2. 887 is not priority as we are already onshore

3. Background check etc. is increased as there have been few cases of giving wrong information to authorities mostly for singles and little less for family. DIBP will definitely check that are you an actual family or fake one so give strong and lots of documentation to support that

4. Lot of changes within immigration department as they are moving staff and one file will not be checked by only one CO. Your file will be checked by various COs to ensure full compliance within the system

5. Finally as long as you haven given correct and complete documentation you will get your visa :).

All the best!

Hello guys, i am a silent follower - It is been 15 Months and 7 days already since applied 887 and still No reply but got the following email from the department about the waiting time period. Hope the below helps. 

 

Processing times – Subclass 887 visa – updated 26 February 2019

Decisions regarding the priority given to the allocation of each General Skilled Migration (GSM) visa subclass is made in accordance with visa planning levels and the delivery of the migration program.  Applications for GSM visas within the same subclass will generally be allocated in date of lodgement order.

 

The Department is currently allocating subclass 887 visa applications that were lodged up to February 2018 for assessment.

 

75% of 887 visa applications are currently taking 440 calendar days to finalise;

90% of 887 visa applications are currently taking 541 calendar days to finalise.
