887 Visa - What's the update?

Recommended Posts

I believe that even when you are on Bridging visa, you still have to comply with the conditions on 489 visa.

This is just a "candy" to lure new migrants into regional areas. 🙂 Simple.

Because government realise that with the new strict criteria not many will be brave enough to come to the bush and commit for 5 years with no right for parole and no benefits to lean on. 😄 😄 

But it is a positive happy change! 

Hahaha...just like us, fish like lure or candy, then wait and wait ....

Hi all. I have applied 887 on 13/9/18. Is there any way I can add my partner before the grant? I’m getting married on 1/12/19. If I get grant before this date, it’s fine. But what is the option for me if I don’t get grant even after marriage. Pls help. Thanks

I believe you are talking after you complete 4 years and are on Bridging visa; please do correct my understanding if wrong...thanks

But if you are on Bridging visa that is completely legal to move anywhere. 

Strange Refusal reason.

I got answered from Immi over movement that- To be eligible for 887, i have to Live 2 years (Anytime not continously) out of my 4 years in designated area and equivalent of 1 year full time job(37.5 Hrs Per week).  I can fly or go outside country/ Non Designated area for my Work. You can also fly outside country  for leisure during Annual leave.

I am waiting for 887. File is open, submitted all requested document But still in my Designated area.

@SUDIP it seems that you are mixing up the requirements of applying for 887 visa with the conditions of 489 visa. To apply for 887 visa, you have to stay in regional for 2 years and work 1 year full time in regional area. This does not mean that once you are eligible to apply for 887 visa, you do not have to comply with 489 visa anymore.

Hi SUDIP, 

Did the Immi confirm with you that during the 2 years residency, we can travel overseas no more than  4 weeks each year (annual leave period)? Thanks

Dear Friends,

I am a silent follower of this amazing group.

Grant, Got our golden email today. CO great Peter.

Applied: 16th May 2018

First contact: 11th June 2019, asked for new born baby’s (born on 11th May 2019)passport and medical clearance by CO Wilson.

Medical clearance got on 13th June 2019 (sent/email (gsm) all hospital documents, birth certificates and letter from Gp to department after few days of baby born)

Complained/requested several times before baby born, didn’t work. So, frustrated.

Complained/requested again on last Tuesday by phone. But they told me that I am still in time frame. However, May be it worked.

Finally got it. Family with two kids. One is 9 years and little one is nearly 3 months.

English efficiency certificate from overseas university was good enough for my wife.

Thanks a lot. You guys are awesome.

I am as hkabir19 on tracker.

Thanks

Congratulations on your grant! Enjoy your new life! 

May I ask, did you call the global feedback unit or just the regular immi number?

Yeah, I think what they said to you makes some sense. 4 weeks a year should be ok, I'll do a check with them anyway. Another thing, for the police check, during the visit back to my home country, I went to Thailand (first year) and Taiwan (second year), but only for a short period less than 5 days. Do you know if they will ask for police check for those 2 countries? As my visa to those country only visitor visa.

I just checked with IMMI call center ( Jonathan) replied that Though i qulaifed for 887 but still visa Condition 8549- Live/work/study in designated area of my prevailing visa (which is 496) is applicable. Which means i still cannot work in Non-Designated area. But i can ofree to work in all Designated areas which is available on my VEVO.(See attachement for my case).
