    Walang health insurance required na nakaattach as condition sa visa 489. Its for your own protection in case na magkasakit/accident etc. kasi wla ngang medicare pa. Its up to you. You know how expensive ang medical dito Au.

    Hello guys, tanong ko naman. Visa 489 ako, at naka 2 years ng nakatira sa regional area. Pero sa work eh part time lang ako, mag 2 years sa work this coming May. Icoconsider kaya nila yun or dapat talagang full time na one year sa work? Thank you po

    hey ubejam, you better ask direct from visa processing unit...try sending your query to [email protected] how many hours per week is your current part-time work?

    @fgs thanks for replying :) it often varies, its not really fixed. Usually in a fortnight it can be 50-60 hrs only. I'll email them & ask. One more question too, nabasa ko sa visa 887, under Location, sabi 'You must be in Australia when you apply for the visa & when a decision is made', ibig sabihin ba pag nilodge mo ung visa
    at pinoprocess eh hindi ka pwedeng lumabas ng Au? Thanks :)

    Pwede ka lumabas, if expired na 489 mo, don pa lang kasi mageeffect ang bridging visa A na ibibigay after you lodged your application, kailangan mo magapply ng Bridging visa B kasi walang travel facility ang BVA..If its time to approve your 887 and still you are away, papauwiin ka nila dito before the visa will be granted.

    @fgs ah okay.. Kelangan bang ma-fulfill mo ang years ng visa like sa 489, valid sya for 4 years dba, hindi ba pwedeng magapply kna for 887 before magexpire?basta natupad mo naman ang conditions ng visa?

    You can appy as soon as you fulfill the 2 years stay and 1 year fulltime work...pag nagapply ka kasi ng 887, magbibigay agad ng Bridging visa A na effective once mag expire ang 489 mo. In case kasi na nagapply ka ng 887 towards sa expiry ng 489 mo, magiging valid pa din stay mo sa Australia kahit expired na 489 mo while waiting for the approval of your 887. Pag nagapply ka agad ng 887 after your 2 years, di na din maaactivate ang bridging visa mo dahil siguradong approved na 887 application mo before pa mag expire ang 489.

    Yes..its worth doing it even if its not listed on the requirements list. Most COs asked for it and if you dont submit before a CO will be assigned, it will further delay your application.

    @ubejam I think as long as ma-hit mo more than 1,820 hours (35hrsx52wks) before ka maglodge ng 887 pwede na masatisfy yung work mo. My working hours before varies between 20 to 40 hrs per week mostly mas marami yung below 35 hrs per week but since nagwork ako ng more than a year, nai justify ko sa CO ko yung work requirements. Hope this helps! Cheers.

    Hello. Ako rin mag apply na ng 887 visa. Regarding supporting documents, need bang ipa-certify lahat ng documents gaya nung nag apply tayo sa Pilipinas for the 489 visa? Karamihan kasi sa documents ko eh dina download ko lang din from the bank's internet banking website o kaya sa ADP naman.

    @marimari I think pwede naman wala naman nakalagay na age requirements sa 887 visa as it was not mentioned on their website. Kindly check if I am wrong. Goodluck.

    Hi po, regarding Family Members sa 887 visa, wala po akong accompanying and dependent family members, sa “Other Family Members” ko po ba ilalagay ang details ng parents and siblings ko po? Thank you.
  • ajet02ajet02 Brisbane

    @ubejam I think the most important documents to submit are evidence of residency and work. Make sure makikita dun yung number of hours sa evidence of work mo like payslip. Yung residency pwede rin ang telephone bills, car rego, rent certificates, credit card statements (the more you submit the better). And regarding sa documents for JP pwedeng yung front middle at back lang nung bulky documents like payslips and bills.


    @ivory Yes, include all your siblings and parents in other family member (immediate family members)

    @ajet02 thanks, try ko ng simulan icomplete ang mga yun. Btw, ano ung documents for JP? Lahat ba yun kelangan ipa JP ko pa? Kc may nabasa ako na no need dw for docs to be certified? Another question also , need ko ba ulit magtake ng IELTS or hindi na? And lastly, regarding sa character requirement, nagsubmit ka ba ng NBI clearance? Sorry daming tanong, thank you

    @ubejam Di ko lang sure kung lahat nga ng documents kelangan nga JP signature, but as much as possible yung documents lalo na yung galing sa Pinas ipina JP ko para lang sure. No need to take IELTS for 887 visa; NBI clearance kelangan mo para sa mga bansang tinirahan mo ng 1 year or more since nag16 years old ka over the last ten years meaning since 2008, kelangan mo ng police clearance from each and every country na naka 1 year ka. Its ok this is the least I could do to help, dito rin ako kumuha ng mga ideas and tips. Cheers!
