187 visa conditions after winning AAT

Recommended Posts

Hey there,


Someone might recognise me from previous discussions.


So... I finally got my visa and PR through the 187 direct entry.


I initially applied in June 2016. In December 2017 my nomination was refused and we appealed to the AAT.


We won the appeal in August 2019 and my visa was remitted for reconsideration to immigration. Finally on November 1st 2019 I got my golden email!


Now.... my grant letter doesn’t state any working conditions that restrict me to my actual employer. One of my friends got the same visa back in 2015 and I remember her letter clearly saying she had to work for 2 years with the employer.


Mine says nothing about it!


I even checked on VEVO. It says I have unlimited working and study rights.


Does it mean that they took into consideration the time that I worked for my employer from when I applied to the tribunal (like when you serve time in jail while waiting for the trial and the you are found not guilty or guilty and the sentence is time served lol)?


I see so many great and better job opportunities passing by under my nose that could really benefit my work career and I wonder if you could actually take them without waiting for 2 years.


Is there anyone that could actually tell me? I would contact the immigration but... how???? They never answer!!!

No work conditions are imposed on a 187 visa, or ever were, so your friend misinformed you.

Notwithstanding this, it is possible to have a 187 cancelled for not fulfilling the undertaking to work for the nominating employer for two years after commencing employment, which is part of the nomination/visa application. You are supposed to start work within 6 months of the visa grant and then work for 2 years.
