Recommended Posts

HI, Quick question here !  If i travel overseas for 4 weeks while I am on 489 does that mean I have to get new PCC when I apply for 887 ? does my wife also have to get new PCC when I apply for 887 ? 

Definitely you should do that mate. Don’t leave any excuse to COs. Actually doing this benefits both sides, co and you.

Hello mates

 

i just requested Department of Home affairs to share the data how many 887 visa application are pending to be finalised and how many 887 visa applications were lodged between March 2018 to March 2019, under Freedom of Information request. It usually takes 14-28 calendar to get a response. Let’s see if they send me the details. If I get, I’ll share in this foroum. Love you all. Cheers.

@peace_at_heart i dont think so its the browser i tried clearing cache and cookies and even tried different browsers. Its still the same. More over i am able to view my 489 application without any issues. 

I think it could be something to do with particular page

Very good move, ai!!! 🙂 I have previously tried to do it, but they fobbed  me off, because I probably didn't word the query correctly. 

Today I sent another request... Yes, please, share with us when you get a response!!!! 🤗

Website timeframe is 16-17 months still but actual processing time for direct grant is around 13.5-14months , hope they can further reduce the time to within 12 months

I got a friend applied for the 887 on Jan 2017 and got grand Ted on early may (means 4 months ) 

and he applied for the citizenship on Jan 2019 and they got back to him and done the test on April 2019 (means 3 months)

And we are waiting here to GET the PR for more than 12 months 😉

all about luck !

Hi Mate, I have done this in March 2019 they replied the same and after they replied that you have raise same request so we are closing this ticket as resolved.

And i never know when i raised the request.

But trust me the processing in last 30 days has improved a lot. it was not like this in last 6 month.

Now for a new file to get open they taking minimum 13 months or 13.5 months.

So certainly they are doing good Job. 

Applicant are also uploading everything so there are more grant.

Which automatically reduce the wait time in future.

@Ivy 12 The processing has slightly improved. However, the DoHA wanted to create a year backlog. They successfully achieved creating so that all 489 visa holder will be living 3 years in regional area. Anyways, it’s still a positive from DOHA that they are processing in 13 months when compared to the time frame they provided in IMMI website. The winter has arrived.

@RANJU  does that mean I dont have to get new PCC even if i had uploaded it 2 years back when I got 489 ? Does my wife also need new PCC or just federal police clearance is enough. I have travelled overseas for 4 weeks twice. Do i need to provde new PCC for me and my wife ?

You will have to provide PCC if you have visited any country other than Australia during your 489 visa.I have worked in UAE, Bahrain, Saudi & India before I came to Australia in 489 and have not provided PCC for these countries during my 887 application. Federal police clearance is mandatory. Hope I have answered this time.

Still good that they are looking at April file now. I don’t think they are skipping the queue. Maybe because they have more COs working on 887 visa now and applications are assign to different COs. Keep positive at lease I can tell March queue is not as long as February for sure and they are moving quicker. Thanks god we have more COs working on our applications now
