887 Visa - What's the update?

Recommended Posts

I just spoke to John Hourigan (the ndirector of MIA) on the phone but he said there is nothing he can do, he knows we are on a bridging visa and we have assess the Medicare and have proper work right, he said we will just have to wait unfortunately...well we need to find another way then...

He said home affairs knows we are in Australia and more than likely on a bridging visa and have proper work right, and they have more important things to do so they don’t care about the processing time. he said he just spoke to home affairs today. Well because we are onshore we are on least priority:(

Hello Guys,

I have submitted a PETITION TO THE PARLIAMENT OF AUSTRALIA about our case.

It would be awesome If you sign the petition. May our voices heard if we sign the petition with large numbers. It is a 5 minutes job.

Regards

I think parliament is closed for 5 months.

Guys, doesn't matter how much we jump up and down or cry like a baby, its clear nobody is going to listen to our voice. Seems like we have to wait and that's the only option we have. Look, they dont have any obligation to process the files in a specific time frame and they can process whenever they feel like, so just sit back and try to avoid thinking about this. Be safe and keep your family safe.

There are report that they are planning to give temporary visa holder benefits as well but I highly doubt we will get anything. If you lose you job you might be able to withdraw your super of up to 10000 this financial year and next financial year, but still not sure if it applies to TR or not

Has any got any thoughts / contacted / discussed complaining about this to the Human Rights Commission? Our processing time (even the 75% is far  far higher than most visas - and this just is not right for the people who need to wait).

Hey good idea

Mental strain and issues

What do you mean ‘’bridging holder’’. ? I think only PR and citizen can attain benefit from government.

Goverment had plan to outsource visa application processing, it would be much faster. But now they decide to stop it...

Nobody cares about our struggle, emotional distress, pain, mental state and life. So we have to stay strong and pass through these tough times. Don't loose hope and stay strong, we all will get PR one day. Stay safe guys 👍

They will delay our grant even more because of centrelink and covid-19 support to australians. temporary residents don't get any, so it just make sense that they keep us that way so they don't owe us anything. They don't care what happens to us because we are here because we wanted to. They have no obligation to us whatsover until we become PR. There's nothing we can do, just keep ourselves and our family safe and healthy, hopefully we're still alive when we get that grant.

I was about to sign the petition @Moksha but I cancelled, no offense, but the construction of the letter is highlighting that we are a liability and that we will flee to the city once we get the grant. I know your intention is good and it is true that opportunity are less for temporary residents like us, let's just keep praying for everyone. There's a light at the end of the tunnel.

Yea true after paying thousands of taxes in this country now we are in difficult moment and they dont want to give us any benefits. If they give us PR now they will have to pay us the unemployment benefits because they waive the waiting period for PR, but they don’t want to help us at all

Anyone here applied through a migration agent? And what are they saying if you have? Do they also say there is nothing you can do?

I spoke to a few agents including the MIA president they all said nothing they can do. Well for them it’s easy to say just wait no one will understand it if they are not within this endless waiting game.
