887 Visa - What's the update?

At the time of filing application you should not have any government debt and fine is government debt. I am assuming that you should pay the whole amount before CO opens your file and delays the entire process.

These debts will not fall under commonwealth debts. I never heard anyone visa decision hold on due to fines and babk liabilities

Guys, I made a new chart. 

Regarding the new processing times which are now 18-21 months and a few comments yesterday that COs are trying to assess the applications at a 13-14 months (for direct grant or CO contact).

That made me investigate the tracker and I did notice that the comment of CO's looking into applications around the 13-14 months mark seems fairly correct. 

Therefore I made a graph to illustrate.

I only looked at the direct grants on our tracker. As this is the moment that the files are mostlikely opened for the very first time.

On the graph on the left we have the time in months, at the bottom the application dates.

You can see clearly that at feb 18 we had a massive increase in processing time. It started even a few months before that. This explains the increase in processing times we saw the past year.

But also that since then they are trying to decrease this time again. Slowly, but steady. So we're sitting around the 12 months timeframe for first assessment now.

Does this makes sense?

Hope they can decrease the processing times again in the nearby future and that the Co's stay working to first assessment around 12-13 months mark as like they do now.

All the best everyone! Good Luck.

It then makes sense that the processing times are at the current mark of 18-21 months. 

In case you do not have a direct grant and you need to submit additional paperwork you're looking at a delay for 4-6 months. So that actually kinda adds up to the current processing times where 75% is granted prior to 18 months and 95% prior to 21 months.

So it is really important to check multiple times that you have submitted all necessary paperwork and have updated your AFP.

I know what I'm gonna do again tonight... gonna check my paperwork all over again!

Correct that some applications have to wait longer or some have to submit docs that were already submitted or updated. Unfortunately, having to include a newborn takes also more time to process. I didn't factor in any of those parameters in my graph because the processing time after a first contact fluctuates strongly. 

As said, I only looked into the direct grants - whereas in my understanding it is a good indication for 1st contact by CO.

First and foremost if your agent has filed your visa then he has the authorization to upload documents.I dont know whether you will be able to upload file or not but if you are then also he will be able to see. Its better that you talk to your agent.

He doesn’t get any notification for uploading a document except updating details like address or passport details but he can see a uploaded document in attachments of your file in his Immi account.

Thanks. I was about to upload 2019 NOA then had second thought would be better to ask in case would cause anything drama.

I think there is no actual timeframe for further assessment giving recent replies. It is depending upon types of info. requested. I have seen someone was granted in a week before first contact whereas someone was awaiting forever after submitting docs. It's really case by case. Lastly I wish CO is in a good mood once my file is being assessing.

Hye legends, 

this is a 4 years visa and all we are all locked in a contract for 4 years. There is an assumption that they start processing applications who are close to finishing their 4 years. So if this is correct then we have to wait till finish our 4 year period if they cant hold their promise. 
Just to be realistic, in most of the cases who got their visa granted, they nearly lived in regional for about 3.5 to 4 years then got their visa granted.

I have one more year to go to jump on my bridging visa and not expecting to see that any CO clicks on my file even.

Guys we can’t do anything other than just waiting. Tried to contact them by email/phone/complaint/through mp(state and federal)... no result, same reply ‘wait’.  What you can do is upload all the docs you think required, Stay positive and stop posting this and that.
