Hey senior members,

@Russki@TakeItOnTheChin

got a few questions if ya could help please,

- I’m at month 9 of my 2 year stay in regional.

- are we supposed to have a continous 35 hour employment every week for 52 week. I am asking this as I’m a casual employee and some weeks i have less than 35 hour week. Can I complete my 52 weeks of 34 hour out of 2 year stay stay ? 

- can we go to Melbourne( not regional) just on weekends to hangout with mates just couple of times in a month. Or that’s gonna be a problem? 

- does the 2 year stay supposed to be in one regional area or we can combine our stay in different regional areas( my job changed) 

cheers thanks guys appreciate it 😁

 

If it is only slightly below the required hours then I am sure the CO's will be lenient. Ofcourse you can travel to metro areas for visits, etc, as long as you do not permanently reside there. You can reside and work in multiple regional areas as per your visa conditions which states the relevant post codes.

you dont need continuously work 35 hrs to to conllect 52 payslips. as long as you can meet 52 + 2 y living you can apply 887. 

 

you can go Melbourn on weeknd for couple of days just like travelling. not factors. but dont do it to many like living 2 years but go to Melbourne 3 months totally. 

 

you can combine in different regional areas in 2 y

It doesnt need to be consecutive weeks, but within two years you should have atleast 52 weeks to proved that you work for 35 hrs per week or 70 hours for 26 fornights.

As per your second query, yes you can go to Melby to hang out, or anywhere you want to go for a trip just for holiday, as long as your residential is still in your nominated state.

3rd query, not advisable to moved to different regional aside from the nominated stated, as it will creates conflict. Unless the State give you a permission, otherwise.

Hi 🙂 

- are we supposed to have a continous 35 hour employment every week for 52 week. I am asking this as I’m a casual employee and some weeks i have less than 35 hour week. Can I complete my 52 weeks of 34 hour out of 2 year stay stay ? 

>>> You can pick out only payslips from your 35+ hours weeks to have 12 months worth of them. They do not have to be consecutive! 🙂 They can even be from 2 part-time jobs. As long as they add up to 35hr/week minimum.

- can we go to Melbourne( not regional) just on weekends to hangout with mates just couple of times in a month. Or that’s gonna be a problem? 

>>> Sure it is not a problem! 🙂 

- does the 2 year stay supposed to be in one regional area or we can combine our stay in different regional areas( my job changed) 

>>> It can be in any regional area, you can actually move between regional areas, but this is a different story. In short, TRY YOUR BEST to stay in your allocated regional area, but if you need to move, you may have to seek release from your sponsoring state. 🙂 Not always.

Most likely, it means "Very Bad". 😄 But seriously, not sure... 

Just checked - it means nothing, just a visa class. 887 is a subclass.

Hi , Just 2 month before I have applied for 887 visa .However , 4 of my payslips (Among 52 ) are less than 35 hours (2 Nos 33.75 ,2 Nos 34 hrs each).Will it be a problem for visa grant or anyone have any experience about that? I can add 4 more payslips which are 40 hours per week but they were completed after the date I applied for 887.

This shouldn't be a problem, we had this situation before and members got their grants. But please do not add post-application date documents, they will not be considered. 🙂 If you are really worried, add a couple of 35+ payslips from before you applied for visa. If you don't have them, don't worry. You are safe. 🙂

or means it has a Virtual barrier , 887 looks straight forward but then they confine us in this barrier for 16 - 17 months before granting 887

@Russki do you by chance know that if we can use Medicare for our kid who is taking speech therapy and it won’t effect on our file to use Medicare as it is not some serious illness ?

Guys thank for your VB clarification , i made the application as thats the only 887 available there to go with. 

the best meaning i chose  was "virtual barrier" 🙂
