489 visa Grant waiting 2018

Recommended Posts

Wow that's crazy! I could have swore it was just the other week it said 7-8months! That seems quite a fast drop! Hopefully a good sign.

Hi I have applied on 5th November for SA 489 Visa, still waiting.

Earlier there was atleast a deadline, I wonder if no time limit is a positive sign🤔  and I hope it is.

Can someone please check with their respective agents that if this has happened in the past, how was the move fast or slow?

The only reason for my worry is that the same thing is happening with people who are waiting for 887 and they have a page " 887 - whats the update"" under pomsinAdelaide.com forum, wherein they have mentioned their pain that not knowing the timelimit made it almost impossible for them to track with no deadline and they are waiting since 1.5 -2 years for 887 grant. Now when I read that it says unavailable due to low volume for 489 as well I am worried with no clue 😓

Hi,

I applied for my 489 family sponsored visa on sept 2017 and i got my visa in jan 2019.
During my bridging visa i was living in sydney as i was not sure whether i will get the visa or not.
While checking on Dibp website it says says that bridging visa period will also count when considering eligibility for 887 visa. I hold bridging visa for approx 1.5 years, 0.5 year short in order to apply for 887 visa.
My question is although i didn’t live in designated area during my bridging visa because of the uncertainty of the grant of the visa, can i request dibp about the waiver of Designated area condition from my visa as i am working in sydney and a onshore applicant. More importantly, i am just 6 months away to be eligible for 887 visa?

Hi. Don't think it'll be considered. As 887 is a pathway to pr for SC 489 & one of the SC 489 condition being staying in regional area for 2 years. Your request of waiving the condition will not be entertained. I'm not a expert but from what I know they'll not consider your request.

Its normally advised to do your medicals before asked by CO. In that way you'll save time and have chance to get direct grant

My Visa lodged 4 Jan 19, then I see health exam and booked 22 Jan cos there was no earlier date, then did all exams and a week later got request from Med Officer of immigration to do some additional test again 3 month later. Now waiting for that period. So even Med test may take longer period in some cases...:/
