    Hi @ajet02 can I please know if you applied online? did you send you documents all at once or just one by one? I am also applying for an 887 visa

    @jambangan yes its an online application. You can send your docs immediately after you lodge and pay the visa, the sooner the better. And yes, it can be one at a time just make sure all the docs have been submitted before the allocation of your designated CO. Cheers.

    Hi! I'm a newbie. We have recently received invitation for visa 489 family sponsored. Question, if yung relative namin is from WA, limited ba kami to stay in WA din or can we stay in ANY of the designated areas once visa is approved? Wala po bang prob later on pag nag-apply kami ng 887 if we stay in a region na not same ng relative namin (as long as we stay in one of the designated areas)?

    @aireen yes 489 visa is valid for 4 years and it is renewable. Once you have completed the 2 years stay requirement and with 1 year full time job pwede ka mag apply ng PR visa 887 later on.

    @aireen if 65 points ka na sa 189, try mo muna 190 at 70 points. May chance ka na rin ma-invite at 190 kasi na-meet mo na requirements na 70 points for accountants.

    @bentassassin30 489 visa has 2 years locked in condition to stay in regional area of the state that sponsored you. After fulfilling this condition free ka na to move in any state you wish to stay regardless if apply ka ng 887 or not.

    @bentassassin30 wait for approval...around 3mos na lang wait ngayon...@Star Jhan the 2 years stay in a regional area is a minimum residency requirement for 887 visa application...you are still bounded by the 489 visa condition of living in a regional area until you applied and approved of another visa without that condition. Pwede kung sa pwede lumipat basta di malalaman ng nagproproces ng application mo kasi basically in breach ka sa visa conditions mo. May mga applicants akong naencounter na pinabalik sa regional area while their applications are being processed kasi nalaman ng CO..What i understand is di naman particular ang CO kung sa sponsoring state ka nga tumira provided na regional area pa rin pinuntahan mo...moral obligation na lang natin yon...i applied my 887 visa a day after ko nafulfil ang 2 years(with 1 week vacation sa PH)

    hello, for 887 application kelangan po ba namin kumuha ulit ng police clearance sa SG since dun kami naka based(for more than 12 months) before moving here in AU? Or pede namin isubmit nalang ulit ang old SG police clearance na ginamit namin for visa 489. thanks po.

    In my case, just submitted the old police clearance(used when applying 489 visa) at wala naman issue with the CO. Nagsubmit din ako new NBI clearance kasi madali lang kumuha just in case...pero depende din kasi sa CO, we never know how they assess each individual case

    hello everyone!

    Just like all of you, 489 visa holder din kami and went here in regional WA. been here since june 2014 and lodge fir our 887 visa application last july 30. it was not an easy experience for us though kasi i am the main applicant for the 489 visa and then for the 887 visa, it was my husband who applied as main applicant since say young unang nakafullfill ng visa condition. finally tapes na young 2 yeas requirement kasi it was the longest 2 years of our lives. ang damming struggles, hirap ng work at kung ano ano pa. may times na ayaw ko na at pagoda na ko. but fight lang. nandito na kami eh and we have sacrificed a lot na.

    so magaapply na kami. ego na, we cannot lodge online and always nageerror, so i had called the immigration and was queued for more than an hour sa line... never give up ika nga. after so many attempts, i had an immig officer who assisted me. so after number of phone calls and emails, they have advised na kaya nag error is dahil secondary applicant si hubby now applying to be primary. system glitch na natapat samin kasi meron naman band applicants na secondary na nag primary ok naman. so to cut short, they advised us to lodge manually instead and gave us an email ad where we can send all our documents.

    we submitted our scanned docs with all the application papers via email and got a message na "due to the volume of email they are receiving, they can only respond to our email after the 28 days due". so we know na matatagalan talaga. we submitted july 30, 2016 then after exactly 1 month, august 30 nakareceive kami email from the immiv stating na nalodge na nils application naming with the confirmation email and the bridging visa.

    although alam naming na magstart pa lang young count naming ng 6 months that day, at lama naming na matatagalan pa masaya na din kami kasi may bridging visa na kami and we can now apply for medicare. so hinayaan na naming. ayaw na mina naming isipin kasi matagal pa naman.

    but to our surprise, after 6 days, last sept 6, i received an email stating na granted na visa namin. PR na kami. it was the happiest day for us kasi finally makakamove na kami sa city. then we learned na ibat iba talaga cases. kahit na sabihin na 6 months processing pa yan, it can either be longer or shorter. and applying for visa 887 are all different cases. like our case, we go manual lodging unlike young mga kakilala naming ditto na online lodging.

    there are situations that are easy and some are harder. but the most important thing is never give up. always remember that there is always light at the end of the tunnel.

    @jvframos wow very inspiring testimony. God is good! Will surely keep your story somewhere in my bag for future use :)

    Congratulations!

    And ano po pala yung bridging visa? Meaning po ba once they acknowledge your 887 application mag iiba yung visa from 489?

    Salamat :)

    Congrats @jvframos. Very happy for you and the family! Yey! :)

    Hi @StarJhan. A bridging visa is automatically granted when you apply for 887 from 489. You can use that to apply for an interim medicare card. You still hold a 489 visa and the bridging visa will only take effect when your 489 expires. Hope this helps! :)

    hi @Jekfire we applied for Tasmania SS via substantial ties to the state cos I have family members who are Australians who were already settled there and the second generation Australians were born and raised in Tasmania. That's why even if there's no job offer, I got the SS.

    Some options (don't know b and c are still current):

    a. get an offer of employment
    b. a strong interest to hire you, from a company
    c. study a year-long qualification in the Uni level (basically sa UTAS)

    Hope these help.

    Happily living in Geelong :)
