887 visa

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone else out there, stuck off-shore, waiting for their 887 decision?

We are stuck in the UK until we can get our 887, it's tough as life is in Australia and it seems like it's going to be a very long wait!

How long have you been waiting? judging from comments online applications submitted in September and October 2019 are now being processed.

I am in Australia waiting for my 887. I applied back in June 2019. Hoping for a direct grant!

I am also waiting on my 887 

submitted September 30 so hopefully wont be too long... current wait time is 16 months. 

I am currently in Aus. 

did you apply directly for the 887 or have previously been on another visa? I have progressed from a 489 skilled regional.

We were on 489, had to leave but then could apply for 887 off-shore under the covid allowance as we couldn’t get back. 489 expired so now no visa. Life is there but now stuck here until we get a decision. Application went in at end of August, trying to build life here but know it’s temp. Plus side is that we know we made the right choice to move to Australia, cannot wait to get back there.

Did you apply for the 887 before or after your 489 expired?

We did apply for the 887 before the 489 expired, but as we were off-shore when it expired, we are now visa-less and can't get back until we are granted an 887.

makes sense as I'm "onshore" and was granted a bridging visa pretty much straight away that comes into effect if the waiting period extends and my 489 runs out.
