887 Visa - What's the update?

Recommended Posts

15 minutes ago, Angry Coder said:

Hi all,  

Is this possible to request HAP ID without having a passport. My baby is two months old now and I'm afraid they will ask me for her medicals but her passport is still not finalized because the nearest consulate general is in Canberra which I need to visit and can't seem to do it anytime sooner. So I was wondering if I can get her HAP ID and submit medical and then, later on, provide the passport.  

No Passport required for HAPID 🙂

I think Feb applicants can lodge complaints to clear the backlog now.

I have lodged many complaints and the answer is the same "your application is within the current published processing time... We ask that you keep your contact with the Department to a minimum..."

I applied 09.02.2018, and have not been contacted yet. 

Hope they reduce the processing time to 15 months, so they can give us a different answer.

Hi trendzinn , this is what i found on RDA orana official website , 

"The Department of Immigration and Border Protection has advised that once you have been granted your 489 visa on-shore applications for the Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489) should relocate to a regional area within 3 months.

RDA Orana expects all its Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489) nominees to relocate to the region as soon as practical (within approximately 3 months) after being granted their visa.

If requested, a nominee who fails to commence living in a regional area immediately after being granted the 489 visa must be able to provide evidence to justify the delay. failure to provide such evidence may result in a finding that the nominee has breached the condition of their Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489)."

https://www.rdaorana.org.au/frequently-asked-questions-489/

 

however one thing to note is that this only mentions living in non regional area for the initial 3 months after a 489 is granted onshore, and does not mention anything about working in non regional for 3 months , it also states that if required the visa holder will have to explain with evidence why they could not live in regional immediately after the grant if they cannot provide evidence to explain why they did not live in regional after the grant when required by immigration this will be considered as a breach of visa conditions , so i  strongly suggest that your friend seek professional guidance to see how she/he should submit their 887 application to avoid any complications.

Did they only ask you employment info from after your 489? Did you provide an employment reference letter to them ? An employment reference letter should normally cover those info CO asked

Hi,

I am on almost same boat as yours. But CO have not asked anything from us for our baby. My baby was born on 06.03.2019 and have submitted the change of circumstances form on 14.03.2019. They asked for further documents on 09.03.2019 but not baby related. 

As I can see in your time lines, they have granted your baby with bridging visa, but they have not dne anything like this for my baby. My baby is still on no visa.

Kindly guide if you have done anything else, so that atleast they will put my baby on bridging visa.

An employment reference letter usually covers all that info, also did you supply pay slips, ATO assessments and super fund documents?

 

I don't have an answer for the medical, but would like to ask how old your child is if you don't mind.

Did you do a Form 80 and 1221? In the form 80 you provide all the work related details, name of business, position you held, address. You also fill out time in which you didn't work in the form 80. Does your pay slips maybe contain the business information?

Am sure you did not do medicals for your baby that is why the CO is seeking the Health letter from your GP right ?

Also your employer is obliged to provide you a reference letter with regards to the details of your employment even if you are still not working for him/her.

Alternatively you can explain to DIBP why your employer cant get you the reference letter and provide a statutory declaration from one of your work colleagues to confirm the information they are requesting.

Kindly confirm if you did medicals for your baby ?

Certification of Documents

I wonder if you guys have/had same problem: 

I have visited a few JP's and no one wanted to certify documents which do not seem to be original (i.e. do not have a blue pen signiture). I have a bunch of such documents which are originals from my pint of view (i.e. Tenancy Agreement, Payslips,... - I've received all of them by e-mail), but they are not from a JP's point of view.

Somehow I ended with some JP who accepted to put "Statutory Declaration stamp" where I declare (in front of JP) that presented document is a true copy of original document.

What are your thoughts, is this kind of certification has the same value (from the CO point of view) as the one where JP itself declares that the document is a true copy of original document?!?

I went to the police station and they certify all my documents without any questions. Maybe try that?

Hi mates, looks like there are a few people who applied in Feb 2018 and waiting for their first contact! And here i am who applied on 23 April and wondering how long is my wait?

I hope no one from January 2018 still waiting for first contact from immi🙉.

So can I ask all the people from Feb 2018 and before ,  put their 🖐 hand up please.

So that I can sit back rather than waiting for a response every single day from DIBP. 

At least it will give us an idea how many people are before me in this queue 🤔

Sometimes its the only way to stop being impulsive 😇

 when we still hold 489 right? 

We are on bridging visa with no conditions, so it’s fine if we move right to Melbourne?

sorry to ask again and again........just scared after seeing the messages.

thanks


 

 
  •  

as the bridging is the subsequent to the 489 and hence it fall with the same conditions (stay in regional area).

this is my opinion...
