887 Visa - What's the update?

Recommended Posts

1 hour ago, bornil said:

Guys...after 446 days(1 year and 2.5 months) got the PR today. Thanks to Almighty.

Date of 887 visa apply: 19th April,2019

First CO Contact: 26th May,2020( CO Eng just told that your file is in progress but did not ask any documents, My baby was 7 months at that time, so I was frustrated not having Hap id then)

1st June,2020: Mailed to skilled support and gsm allocated for Hap id

4th June,2020: Complained through immiaccount.

9th June,2020: 2nd CO(Michelle ) gave me Hap id by s56 docs.

9th-10th June,2020: search online every 2 hr for Bupa appoinment, tried for Port Augusta also, but did not get appointment in June.

11th June,2020: call Bupa at 8 am in morning and got appointment in Norwood medical centre on 2nd July,2020

2nd July,2020: Done medical and clicked the submit button on that afternoon as I saw no action required in my daughter's health assessment section.

8th July,2020 at 1 am night : 28 days completed after document request, so complained again to finalize visa

8th July 10:26 am: Got the golden grant by Co Sophie

 

Documents: Federal Police clearance updated on 25th May,2020

Overseas police clearance updated on 2nd July,2020( CO did not ask though)

Payslip, rent receipts, House lease agreements  updated to till date on 25th May,2020

Medium of instruction with transcript and certificate of mine uploaded on 25th April,2020 on others section

Wife medium of instruction with transcripts, certificates along with Ubereats tax summary, Cer 3 certificate uploaded on 25th April,2020 

887 visa seems like boat visa to me sometimes as processing time jumped from 6 months to 29 months intentionally by DIBP, then after change.org , petition and coronavirus idle time making case officers to look into our files. Atleast our voice worked, thats a great victory.

Hope all of you guys get grants soon.

 

Congrats

Granted.

Applied on 16/06/2019

First contact on 03/06/2020 CO Kimberly (request for updated AFPs, IELTS for main applicant + few documents that CO couldn't open / find but have been uploaded)

Granted today this afternoon.

This forum was very helpful and I would like to thank all people that shared correct information and their experiences that helped me to prepare my application.

Good luck with grant to all applicants.

Advice: After applying, move focus from application/this forum, live your life fully... and come back here after an year to check the dynamics of visa processing and go from there - add additional documents if new requirements popped-up in the meantime (such as English competency proof for main applicant that wasn't required before in my case,...) or/and complain,.... This will save your nerves from negative thoughts and unnecessary anxiety - this is the process you cannot affect on. Stay positive - your day will come! Soon! Very soon! Cheers

Long time lurker...

Thank you MMM for sticking around and sharing the good news here for us who don't use telegram or facebook 😊

It really looks the case officers are focusing on the old cases where additional documents were requested. It's still good to see them giving much more grants than say the "bad" n old days before April, but it also makes me a bit nervous as my application was in Jan 2020 and they suddenly came to a halt 😂 

My rough calculation on the basis of their "speed" before these couple of weeks was about one-month applicants per week, so hopefully after they clear all the backlog they'd resume that speed.

Cheers, and hang in there guys/girls😊😊😊😊

hooray!!! grant guys....

applied:25 June 2019 via agent 

1st contact:3rd June 2020, asked for new IPCC ,relationship proof, bank statement showing salary deposit from employer, original citizenship copy.

was a long wait to get Indian pcc almost 26 days, uploaded on 6th July 2020 and got a grant today.

complained twice personally although i applied through agent.

i humbly request you guys to re upload everything you did while applying for 489, and also keep updating with new requirement which you can get it from this sort of group page , moreover make sure your pcc is up to date , attached payslips, residential proof, english proof for both primary and secondary applicant ,bank statement showing salary deposit from your employer  and each and every document which can prove your existence  in particular regional area.

this page was very helpful during this 13 months journey, thank you guys for the support and  my best wishes for you all who have been waiting for the golden email, cheers!!!!

Congrats dear. How did you complaint? Direct on the immiaccount website? I’m using an agent and when I complained they told me I’m not authorised to do that and ask my agent to do it. My agent is useless. I want to complain myself.
