Very important for me:

Can I withdrawal my application after CO ask for extra information.

Actually, CO asks for justification why I have to spend less than two years in a specific area. I have clearly mentioned that I have travelled overseas for work purpose only and attached all relevant documents too. 

CO Andrej.

Any good immi consultant advise here?

GRANT GRANT GRANT

Applied 03/04/2019
Request for response to NJL s.57: 22/05/2020 (CO Lisa)
Grant date: 02/07/2020 (CO Rajani)
Family of 2

Long time lurker here. My partner and I made sure to update all our police certs and other documents (English) prior to our 1 year mark. However, the application faced some delays due to my very frequent work travels offshore. Writing my experience so that if anyone is in the same circumstances, this can be of help to them. 

Received NJL s.57 on 22/05/2020 with the comments being I was not on shore for quite a number of days. I then responded on 18/06/2020 in response to this with the help of my migration agent. 

I traveled approximately 1XX days overseas largely due to work travel to a country where I had no personal relation to. I also traveled domestically from city to city within this country. Despite stating clearly in my Form 80 and uploading my employer contract which stated that I could be required to travel for work, it wasn't enough causing the CO to question me.

What I should have done before receiving the NJL and pre-empted was to get a letter from my employer summarising my reason for travel, the dates I traveled, and the cities that I went to and uploaded all the other documents such as my work expense claims (air tickets and hotel receipts), work emails, payslips showing I received no A/L on days I was away for work, highlighted on my bank statement all the times that I received my salary and paid rent/utilities. We built our case around how Australia was my only residence and the travels overseas were strictly for work. 

If you travelled for work (might not apply in 2020 due to COVID-19), please collect as much evidence as you can and collate everything in a document (make it as clear as possible) so your CO won't have any questions when they pick up your application.

Very grateful that we got our PR finally, it has been a roller coaster ride for us.
Again thanks to all on here as we have a really supportive group of people that really helped to encourage and fought hard to expedite the process for everyone. :)

Ok sure. Just one more, can I apply again 887 if it's rejected and I still have valid 489 visa?

Please consult a qualified MARA agent who can advice you appropriately. If your file has been opened already and a CO has requested for documents it is not advisable to withdraw your application as this may raise concerns about the authenticity and integrity of your case. From what I remember the other person who was in a similar situation wasn't contacted by a CO therefore, th withdrawal of his application cannot be used as a frame of reference for your case. Good luck and seek expert advice.
