887 Visa - What's the update?

Recommended Posts

 My wife's PTE taken on August 2017. it was just 10 months old when we applied 887 on June 29, 2018. As per her PTE scorecard, the score will expire on August 2019...So, do you think she needs to take the English exam again, OR it doesn't matter as the score was valid at the time of application?!.. Thanks

 

It will be fine, as long as it is not more than a year old at the time of application, she will not need to prove Functional English again if the Department takes an extended period to grant the 887. Only the AFP may need to be provided again if more than a year old when nearing the grant date

Will we be asked to take the IELTS/PTE  exam again?

 

Thanks

Average and overall means the same thing, you don't need a minimum of 4.5 band for each component.
 
'To prove that you have functional English you must provide evidence of one of the following: ... An International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test result of an average band score of at least 4.5 based on the four test components of speaking, reading, listening and writing.

Thanks that’s why I thought anyways all clear just need overall 4.5. Thanks everyone

Thanks.

Hope do not need to repeat the standard documents which required.

But i took safety measures as follows which could be help every one.

My passport was due to expire on 28th May 2019. So i renewed my passport and uploaded on early April.

Our AFPs were expired then renewed and uploaded them.

PCC were expired but did not renew them since we have not travel after applied for 887.

Submitted my wife's new IELTS results.

Good luck.

Hello my fellow 887 visa applicants. I have been following this forum from last one year. I have applied my 887 visa on March 8th 2019. Please add me to the spread sheet. 

I have a quick question, 

 

does the the bank statements needs to uploaded in the work experience and residential as well. Or if I upload in work experience bank statements for 2 years, will that be fine??
