Hi,

My file has opened today.

Asked for updated Passport due expire on May and new AFP.

Applied on 15/02/2018.

Thank you for this information @Raj-Feb'14! 🙂 

So this is another thing we all need to check - passport expiry dates. 😉

Hi All, being on 489 visa can we visit New-Zealand or we need tourist visa?

For tourists visa do we have to get it done from our home country or from Australia?

At last, if we want to visit Europe from Australia(while on 489 visa), from where I will apply Schengen visa, Australia or home country? 

if someone had similar experience and want to share their perspectives/thoughts please:)

Thanks already did and you have may seen it already on Twitter.
One of issue also is that many people keep on complaining about hard process here but would not do anything practically.
I am not saying to do anything over the board but emailing media, tweets and relevant stuff atleast can happen if not something over board.

Guys please this one Tweet means we are submitting our petition to immigration ministers, media channels and so many people. Please don't be ignoran. Take it as a first priority. If you don't have twitter account open it and retweet and use effective tags. Believe me, it will work.  See the below stats, so many people have already been checked our tweet. 

2500 people's sign partition will not be as effective as this tweet. SO DO IT NOW.

I just called immigration support they said your file has been assessed. No outstanding action required. Just wait. I asked how long I have to wait. Its already been 13 months.
he said WAIT. 
Hope to have something soon.
 
It means your grant is near

At this rate we will have to submit everything over and over again. By the time COs pick our files all docs will be expired.

That's true. We are in Townsville (North QLD) and had serious flood this year in February. After flood, life has become more terrible in current house. There is mould every where. Honey bees have made nest in between roof and ceiling. Honey bees frequently entered into our house and bite us. We tried to change the house but no one is agreed to accept us as a tenant  due to almost finishing visa 489 (on July 3rd, 2019) and property owners/ real estate agents don't recognize Bridging Visa. Already there is shortage of rented accommodations here after flood. We are forced to live in current property only. Sometimes, we really want to cry and it feels like committed a big mistake by coming to Australia on provisional visa. Don't know when God will listen us.

Sorry to hear Kapil. We all are pretty much in the same boat, everyone is struggling in different ways but the path is one. Why not let's talk about the positives, in my case, I did accounting and I think I was in the last batch who got 489 visa as an accountant (now it's very difficult for accountants). I know many who are struggling to get even a 489 and looking at their struggle I feel mine is nothing. Therefore, in my opinion better to focus on the positives and enjoy life my brother.

I also did post graduate courses in accounting and in finance in Melbourne for two years; and afterwards cleaned toilets, washed dishes and served at tables as a waiter in a restaurant for nine (9) hours a week for almost a year.

Why? Because I have a dream and a goal. To me, it is temporary and a small price to pay to meet immi's requirements. 

Always bear in mind that we're given 489 visa because we are the best and the brightest.

Co asked for more documents on 27/11/2018 then after haven’t heard back

My case was handled by my agent and I didn't know abt logging into IMMI account to chk on status till I came across this forum. Thanks everyone I managed to do that yesterday.....realised that I was asked for more docs twice, once on 7th June 2018 and another time on 23rd July 2018. As I wasn't handling the application....my hubby was thus got the dates a little mixed up. Can someone be kind enough to help me amend details on the Google doc? Thanks very much. By the way, I was trying to find who was the CO who handled my case but not sure where to find his/her name in the IMMI account. Can someone please advise? Thanks.

Hi @Santosh, I think you have to be careful here. The baby is born = change of circumstances. In my opinion (and I don't have any babies to report, so take it with a pinch of salt), you should let the immi know at the earliest about the baby. Otherwise you may land yourself into trouble. How would you explain that you have had a baby for a couple of months before letting them know about it? 🙂 It may be not be a good look. Not sure how it works, but if you get a 887 visa tomorrow and your baby ends up without a visa, will you have to apply for a new visa for him/her? It just smells of trouble to me... 🙂 I hope, someone with a baby can advise us more? Guys? 

In all honesty, you will be better off asking a MARA agent. Just to be on the safe side. Good luck!!! 🍀

Immigration site says:

You must tell us about your baby as soon as possible (even if they don't have a passport yet) so we can determine whether your baby can be added to your current visa application.
