    IMMI update about processing times

    Thanks for the post! I arrived in Australia in May 2019 and have been waiting on my PR application since June 2021. Not long after arriving I met my Australian partner and now have an Australian child on the way, both are impacted by the wait. My current visa is due to expire, I have recently got a good job with a good employer who understands so that's good! I am trying not to watch the pot boil but it's not usually not far from my mind. News like this is always welcome.
  3. I can confirm this is not the case. I arrived in Australia in early 2019 on a temporary / provisional visa. I secured a permanent job in IT immediately. I started a new job a few weeks ago, again a permanent position, that also required a high level of security clearance and I am soon to be on a bridging visa. In both jobs team members were also on visas that aren't permanent.
  4. There is a big shortage of IT people. Assuming you're good, I don't think you will have too much of a problem finding work.

    New permanent migration cap

    Probably because the 489 has now finished and replaced with the 491. So was the conclusion the quota was included on the 489 and not the 887>?

    New permanent migration cap

    Does anyone know if the quota applies to 887 visas applicants please? I have been told the quota applies when you are granted the 489 and not the 887.
  7. Hello, This is a quick post to thank Paul Hand from SunCoast Migration. I dealt with him recently with a few questions in relation to my 887 visa application. Paul was prompt, extremely helpful and clear. He addressed all my concerns with no drama at all. If someone is looking for a migration agent, I can recommend him without hesitation. Have a great weekend!
  8. I totally understand your situation. I am in Australia and have been waiting for my 887 visa since June 2021, but nobody has even looked at my case. No contact at all.
  9. I screen recorded the entire process - just incase. Thanks very much - I will give you a call. Thanks for the reply. Much appreciated.
  10. I was wondering if I could bump this. Is anyone able to advise please?

    Is my daughter in the right year group for her age?!

    I worked in the UK education sector, there are a lot of schools in the UK that don't do this, it's becoming more common. Remember that they start school later in Australia than they do in the UK.
  12. I am on a skilled provisional visa. PR visa has been lodged and just waiting for them to pick up my file!
  13. My bridging visa is soon going to kick in and I have just got a new job. However, I have been in Australia a number of years.
