Hi all, I am 21 years and 2 months old, currently pursuing bachelor of engineering at Adelaide University (third year). I am on a 489 Visa here. Its been 2 years since we have moved to Australia and we have satisfied all the conditions of the 489 visa. We will be applying for the 887 Visa now. I live with my parents and am financially dependent on them for my international tuition fees and other needs. Currently 887 visa processing time is ranging from 19 -22 months, I are bothered due to such a long processing time period. Because it's mentioned on DIBP website that A child who turns 23 while your application is being processed and who does not meet these ( dependent ) requirements cannot satisfy the criteria for this visa. Will there be any exception regarding the above highlighted portion since I was granted an eligible 489 visa as a family unit? Can anyone please clarify, your opinion will be highly appreciated. Best Regards Hamza Khan
Lodged 887 application on 07/11/2017
Requested to provide for 80 and AFP name check in may 2018
Due to an issue with my name in my passport asked to provide another AFP name check, form 80 and another form called "Declaration of Service" they asked me to also make sure i had completed FORM 1399 (i have never been in the military anywhere anytime) this was in Oct 2018.
Uploaded all docs within a week on 24 Oct 2018
No updates since then....on IMMI online it just says further assessment.
CO was Adam when the last set of docs were asked for in Oct 2018.
Anyone have the same experience? Also i saw on this or another forum that Adam might not be in IMMI anymore...

Hi All, being on 489 visa can we visit New-Zealand or we need tourist visa?
For tourists visa do we have to get it done from our home country or from Australia?
At last, if we want to visit Europe from Australia(while on 489 visa), from where I will apply Schengen visa, Australia or home country?
if someone had similar experience and want to share their perspectives/thoughts please:)
