Congrats mate..Just a quick question..I did my police verification when i applied for 489 visa. Do i need to get the police verification again from India or can i attach the old one?

Also, do i need to get a police verification in Australia as well?

I will apply for 887 visa next month..

Many thanks in advance..

Cheers,

Voz

no .Dont add them. if you add them, you need to fill 1023 to remove them.

thanks a lot Jany for your help and advice. can you please help me with the following query

1. I'm currently living with my uncle and aunt for the last 2 years. So, in that case i don't have a lease or a rent agreement. But, I have a private insurance(for the last 2 years), mobile bills and broadband bills. Also, tax statement of last year and will attach this year's statement too (by the time i apply for application i should have it). 

Will these documents suffice in case of residential proof?

2. Should i also go for the medical test before lodging my application?

Thanks a lot for the help.

Hello

I've received the mail today with 887 grant

Applied on 28.11.17

CO requested police report of my country (for the visits which were more than  weeks) and proof for SA stay on March 17

Email received today 05.05.17

 

FYI  : This is my 2nd time application as my 1st application was rejected on 2016 (reason: my period of stay was below 720 days). then I completed the balance days and applied again which is this. 

good luck everyone

If the overseas visits are more than 3 weeks they reduce it from the days u stay. for example I applied somewhere around in 2 yrs and 2 months. thats around 770 days. but i was outside (each stay more than 3 weeks) around 80/90 days (on 3 separate visits) that makes my actual SA stay around 680 days. hence it was rejected

best thing is to apply after 720 days in specific region (in my POV   :) )

does anyone updates a table. It was very helpful if its with short comments on status on my 1st application

to restate :  everyone - please apply for your police reports if u have stayed outside and give the documents of stay (bills, rental agreements, etc)  and job details (organizing helps i think)

also I have done a dumb thing of uploading 60 documents on my 1st GO and when they asked for more documents I had to post them with certified true signatory. Dont do it. organize (like scanning several paysheets to single doc) documents and upload

Just my idea based on the issues I have faced. If you have uploaded all the documents perfectly - it is more likely the wait is minimum (my friend got the PR within 4 months)

I am not sure on this, but since your wait is more than 11 months - they must give u an answer for ur delay if your inquire. they say if the time limit is exceeded , they will answer(time li it for 90% in website is 11 months

True. Not to brag.. I'm guessing we got the direct grant because my documents was in 1 pdf per checklist. I even got our names wrong, i forgot our middle names, that i thought will cause some delays. But i uploaded immediately form 1023 dont want to wait for a CO to ask me. So we got direct grant.
