887 Visa - What's the update?

Recommended Posts

1 hour ago, TakeItOnTheChin said:

Hi All,

It may not mean much but some interesting statistics when reviewing our group spreadsheet, which begs the question, why are 887 applications decreasing so substantially from month to month? I know the spreadsheet may only represent members on this forum but does the trend indicate the general trend across Australia? Could this be a reason why the immigration website explains that there is not enough applications to determine a timeline? Ofcourse it may mean that people are just not visiting this forum, but it is an interesting fact after immigration numbers were cut over the last few years and point requirements have increased for all visas.

Number of sc887 Applications per month since 1 November 2017 until end Feb'19 (I could go further back which could further back-up the trend)

Nov'17 = 45;   Dec'17 = 36;   Jan'18 = 47;   Feb'18 = 49;   March'18 = 13;   April'18 = 26;   May'18 = 11;   June'18 = 12;   July'18 = 10;   Aug'18 = 8;   Sep'18 = 9;   Oct'18 = 5;   Nov'18 = 5;   Dec'18 = 8;   Jan'19 = 2;   Feb'19 = 8

 

In November'17 there were 45 applications, but in November'18 only 5!

True...

So there are several 'big' months for 887. especially Feb 2018.

It could ofcourse mean that if there are less immigrants taking up the 489 visa then it may mean that once Feb'18 887 applicants are processed, then the balance of applicants after Feb'18 may be processed faster....................I live in hope

Good hope! Actually they don't need to delay approvals for 887 deliberately, all they got just political condemnations from parties, and we just can get granted sooner or later. 887 is the subclass deserves good treaty, because more than two years' real life in regional areas is not a joke!!!! And plus all documents we provided for 489, there's no reason for them to play this game!! Stupid!

Great you got contacted @Raed! 🙂 Hope your grant will follow soon.

Just another reminder for everyone who still have not updated their AFP clearance certificates, do it asap. 😉 🙂

How long were you in the UAE for in order for them to request a PCC?

One case officer working, we got 2 grant and 1 has been contacted in a single day. Imagine 5 case officers working for 887 . Processing time will be much faster. Just hope for the best.

I'd say yes. 🙂 They asked me for PCC for just a 4 weeks visit to the country. @Raed has been asked for just one week. 😮 And another member was asked for a new Irish PCC after 3 months holiday in Ireland.

If I visit to home country for two weeks, I need AFP ? Anyone help me.

I will say just apply for one. Indian PCC takes 5 working days to get. Dont take any chance. It just takes around 50 bucks. So 50 bucks or wait for another 3-4 months

OMG! 😮 I thought, we only need police clearances for over 18 applicants?! My boy just turned 16! 😄 😄 

You are right:

We may ask you to provide a police certificate (also called a penal clearance certificate) from every country you have lived in.

This applies if you are over 16 and have lived in any of the listed countries, including Australia, for at least 12 months in the past 10 years. It may apply if you have worked on a ship.
