Hi all,
Our PR visa got approved yesterday! Applied 13/4/18,  approved 14/5/19.
Just a note for anyone wanting to know about documents: I re-applied for our AFP’s in March and uploaded them to make sure our documents were in line for a direct grant  CO Nikki
I did send several emails to immigration and made a call last week as we were on a strict deadline to get our visa approved before the 7% foreign investment stampduty would be non-returnable. This may or may not have helped our case- either way I hope you all get your visas approved soon so you can enjoy this beautiful country! 
 
Congratulations

Congrats mate!  How did you get your daughter’s medical done? CO sent you any indication to do that? I remember you mentioned you asked for that without your daughter’s passport. 

Yes I did and I got it without my daughter's passport! I emailed the below email address and they responded pretty quickly. Luckily I was booked to see our doctor the next day anyway so I got the health check letter written then.

Hi Vinh

Case officer will only look at the Test Date prior to make application needs to be 1year 

When is your friend son actually wrote the test??

Seems like my son's English test expired too if validity is for 1 year. He sat for it in mid Nov 2017 just before we applied for 887 on 30 Nov 2017. Just checking, if he completed his Year 12 in Nov 2017 (meaning no problem with his English),  will he need to redo his English test again. CO hasn't requested for it yet but I want to be prepared.

Thanks for all replies. He said when he clicks on health assessments he can't see any names of me, husband or son there so we need to wait until co assigned. I have my immi account and when i click on health assessments it shows error or something and nothing comes up. Anybody else had same issue.

Same mine

He took the test on Jan-18 and submitted on Mar-18. Unfortunately I worry CO would ask for dependents' english test randomly.

Hi Vinh

Shall you please advise your friend to enquire this issue with home affairs

As per home affairs website link below functional english for dependents should be as your friend son wrote IELTS in JAN 18 and applied in Mar 18 it must be valid as per the link below

I think you wait until CO ask to do it. No need to hurry. We can complain hem via the link wincivil gave above.

Applied date was 30/11/2017, 2 requests in June and July 2018, 3rd request on 30/4/2019 for my son's PCC (who is currently in home country for 2 years National Service). Just submitted PCC to immi on Monday. Agent told me my son needs to be onshore for the grant to come through. My son will only be discharged from army next Feb. He does come back once in a while for 1 week. Next trip he will be back will be in Aug. My question is will his stay be too short for the grant to come through? Is there any way I can get them to grant without him being onshore? He needs to apply for uni some time in Sep 2019....a big dilemma for us. Anyone has suggestions?? Really appreciate......

One thing I am sure that you will have to is to fill out the Form 1399 ,discharge of service form, when he came back to Australia. He also needs to get a discharge letter from Army and provide to Immigration.

Enjoy with your new life...

I am not too sure about it, but what I understand is 887 is an onshore visa application, all of the applicant included into 887 needs to be on shore to get PR. If someone is staying offshore It's will delay the processing time. In your case your son need to be onshore then its up to immigration how quickly they can finialise your application. It may takes 4 weeks to 6 months. During this time your son need to stay in Australia until you get the PR. I hope you will understand the fact.

Experts tell me if I was wrong.

Hi guys,

I am on 489 and was planning to get married. My question is can I apply for my partner's subsequent entrant visa once I apply for my 877, as technically I would still be on my 489 visa for 2 years after applying for 887. Also if any one can guide to approximate wait period for 489 subsequent entrant visa. I am looking to apply for my partner's visa from offshore. Thanks for the help. Hope to see many more people with their golden emails this week.

hi, 

You need to get 489 for your partner before applying for 887. the processing time of 489 for subsequent is unsure, i would say it could be about few months. 

hope that helps
