Thanks mate. It seems to be the only way to get it. Filling the form again and submitting it. I am just coming from their office and they said if I’m in a hurry I can give them a call after two days to get the new Medicare number. If no hurry then I can wait for 3 weeks for the cards to arrive.

Hey guys!

Reaching out for quick help, especially from friends who have just submitted the 887 application 

While filling the application form, there is this question, which says "Provide details of all countries in which you, your spouse/de facto partner or dependents (accompanying or not) have lived for 12 months or more (since turning 16) during the last 10 years. The 12 month period of residence may be made up of a number of shorter periods. You must account for every year."

Is the expectation that we mention all entry and exits in the last 10 years, in countries were we lived cumulatively for 12+ months in the last 10 years? Similar to what we did in Form 80? E.g. My wife has made several visits to Dubai to visit her parents and her overall stay in the last 10 years exceeds 12+ months

Looking forward to hearing from you guys

 

Regards

Received the following correspondence from Chief Minister office.

 

Thank you for writing to the Chief Minister the Hon. Michael Gunner MLA to raise your concerns in relation to the delays with the processing of subclass 887 visa applications. This has been passed on to us for response.

The Northern Territory Government understands the importance of providing our skilled overseas workers and their families with the security of long-term residency, and acknowledges the anxiety you are feeling over your pending visa application.

As you would understand, the administration of visa applications is the responsibility of the Australian Government through the Department of Home Affairs and the Territory Government has limited capacity to intervene in these matters. This department has made submissions to the Department of Home Affairs to advocate for faster processing times for subclass 887 visa applications.

Thank you again for taking the time to write to the Chief Minister, and we wish you the best.
