887 Visa - What's the update?

Recommended Posts

Hi all
 
I was an onshore 489 applicant. I got bridging visa grant(489) on Jan 8, 2018, and grant on September 2018
Can I count my residency for 887 from Jan 8 2018( bridging grant while on postgraduate visa).
Few people told I can 
I will ask the agent too. 
Any thoughts

You can count your residency since the time you spent as bridging visa A was in effective too, but make sure there is another requirement to apply for 887 visa, which is holding 489 visa at least for 2 years. 

(I assume that your bridging visa A of 489 visa was in effect after the postgraduate visa was expired, so the time between the postgraduate visa expired and 489 visa grant are eligible to count toward your residency prove.  

Cheers

When does the site get updated normally ? Last update was 26th June 2020. Which means would it be at the end of each month ?

Arrived in the country 15 April 2018

Applied for 887:  24 May, 2020

First CO contact: 25 May, 2020, requesting primary applicant English, PCC, & AFP, and further evidence of employment; partner PCC & AFP, submitted evidence, AFP, PCC 22 June and made a case for not requiring English.

Guys,

We won't be able to provide our requested IELTS in time, is there anything we can do about this or will they just simply deny our application without it?

If you've already taken the test and are awaiting results, send in your payment receipt along with a letter explaining the delay.
