Recommended Posts

Yes initially my wife and myself had a baby 3 months ago update all documents for baby 

but not sure what else they asked 

that is one of the reason. i think they are dodgy checking all single person's apllication to make everything know that they are still working :)) all family or couples are pushed aside.

Funny that people think 489 is better than the new 491 because we only need to stay in regional for 2 years.

But the reality is that  the government doesn't want us the move to Metro, they can't change the existing visa requirements, so they extend the 489 living requirement by increasing the visa processing time to 2 years. If 1 year processing time is reasonable, then the extra year will make 489 living requirement become 3 years, which is the same as 491. 

Its fine we can survive in regional, but what did the govenment do to lock eveyone in regional and not providing any welfares and assistance?

Can someone please offer any advice on renting agreements and how a bridging visa affects your lease.

Our 489 Visa expires in January 2020, and our house lease needs to be renewed now in November. Would or should we anticipate any issues in renewing our lease?

I only ask, because I know that financial institutions will only help while your visa is current and they have said that they do not recognise the bridging visa to be valid. 

I am concerned that we will have the same answer from real estate brokers.

Suggest do not post this kind of comments. If the forum is audited by immigration, it gives them a  kind of impression that we are getting ready to stay for 5 years.

Over the last two weeks people were too much happy that they didn't increase the processing time and we saw the outcome!

Ask agent if you could go with periodic agreement, that's what I am doing now. Agent has no issue with that they don't even ask visa all we do just sign the contact and done!  But cons is rent going up a little bit but acceptable still.

Absolute nonsense post!! People are getting their grants between 13 and 14 months. You must have a problem posting these negative forecasts, not sure what you are trying to achieve. 

Another thing, 491 visa holders will also go through a wait period after 3 years of living in a regional area plus will need to prove other earnings conditions.

Stop posting nonsense otherwise you will be called out.

It was not a problem in my case...I guess real estate people don't check visa status on renewal😄

I am planning to lodge my 887 visa in Dec 2019, Can I generate HAP ID for my 1 year old girl even before starting 887 visa application online to save time as I believe it takes time to get HAP ID once you have lodged the visa since you have to wait for CO to provide one which only happens after initial contact by CO around 12-15 months.

Hi All,

Just wanted to seek advise on the timeline for 887 visa application.

1. 489 visa grant 18th December 2017

2. 887 2 years will be 18th December 2019 

Should I apply 887 on 18th December 2019 or push it further till 1st week of Jan 2020 as I took 4 weeks of holidays.
