Recommended Posts

Good vibe guys. Just got contacted for baby medical.

Application Date: 19th April,2019

First CO contact: 26th May,2020( CO Eng said that application has been allocated for processing, he just filled a timesheet to apply hrs I guess...:P as I need medical of my 7 month old baby)

1st June,2020: emailed to skilled.support and gsm.alocated and ask for HAP id

3rd June,2020: Called immigration to know whether my baby really needs medical examination or not, the responder said, needed but will be decided by CO.

4th June,2020: Lodged complaint through immiaccount to process my application

9th June,2020: CO Michelle requested s56 and advice for baby medical by providing HAP id.

Hi all,

Applied: 31 July, 2019

Granted: 09 June, 2020

Family of 3

Applied through an agent (the same agent that applied for the 489 for me while I was still offshore). Fantastic agent and her team. Left nothing to chance. Guided me well through both processes. Therefore, did not have to make even a single complaint.

While OVID-19 brought misery to the world, the dark clouds did have a silver lining as well for people like us who were and are waiting for the 887 grant. If not for COVID, the process time wouldn't have come down as it did in my opinion.

I wish all who are waiting for PR will get their grant sooner than they are anticipating.

Good luck!

But they show on processing time 21-24 months. Do they still accept the complain?

Sharing my big news guys...Got my Direct Grant (one full year earlier than I expected and I cannot describe my happiness)

Application Date: 06/08/2019

Grat Date: 09/06/2020

Country: Sri Lanka

No of Applicants: 3 (Baby born after 489)

CO - Rajani

Office: GSM Adelaide

Special notes for your benefit:

I was an offshore 489 applicant and sponsored by QLD. We have never stepped foot on QLD, directly came to Melbourne and then to Geelong. No release letter or no clarifications provided in my Cover Letter. But Geelong was in the postcodes list in the 489 Grant letter. 

after landing in Melbourne, I stayed for 2 months with my cousin sister in a metropolitan area, also worked 1.5 months in Melb metropolitan till it become 3 months from the day we land. I have provided these details in my cover letter. I knew from somewhere that there's sort of a 3 months grace period to settle in a regional area. but this is not in writing. 

Then we were blessed with a son, and was in the initial application. based on @olaade's and @bornil's comments here in the thread, last Friday I went to my GP and got a letter and the Immunisation History for my son and attached. 

I have done an ICT bachelor's in Sri Lanka, no studies in Australia. Only provided the Degree Certificate and Transcript. Based on the comms I have requested a letter from my Uni being the Primary applicant, but haven't got it yet. looks like it wasn't an issue. My transcript clearly says the medium is English. 

I have also uploaded a couple of payslips after the application and some bills to prove residency after the application, not sure whether they were helpful. Did the same for my wife as well. 

Finally, you guys have been amazing. all the advice from you guys specially @DANISH RAZA, @nudgee, @Stellajane @Doman @Skaur lead to this outcome. Thanks heaps. 

I'll be here for a few months, to see all of you getting your grants very soon and that's my ultimate wish. Also to answer your questions if that's gonna help.

Love ya
