Subclass 887 Visa

I have a subclass 489 Family Sponsored visa. I understand that in order to qualify for permanent residency or a subclass 887 visa I have to be living for 2 years and working full-time for at least 1 year in a specified area. Does living and working within the Perth metro area fulfill this requirement? And what is the minimum number of hours required to qualify as full-time employment?

Thank you.

The more clarity that you have in your documents given for proof. The more it becomes for the CO to conclude.

Hello,

I have a 475 and in August I will apply together with my wife for 887. I think the overall process is clear, however there are few things which I'm not 100% i understand.

For example, we will need a police clearance certificate from every country for the last 10 years.
In the last 10 years we both lived in Romania and Czech Republic. When we applied for 475 we both had a police clearance for both countries. Now, being in Autralia it will very complicated to grab a police clearance from Romania and Czech Republic. Since we entered Australia we didn't left the country.

My question is. In addition of National police clearance from Australia is really required to have police clearance from other countries?

work hours condition

Dear Everyone,

I understand that I have to live in WA (checked with visa condition) for 2 years and worked 1 year for at least 35 hours /week. I do understand two part times job can also include. However, nobody mention here is the public holidays.

I'm currently working 5 days / week with casual full time. So whenever the public holidays come I lost my job hours. Since I am not on full time permanent job. I think that even I work two part time jobs I still can't meet this because of public holidays.

So my question is how immigration office decide on this matter? They said allow two part time jobs but how about the public holidays. I see too many public holidays here. Can help me please? What should I do?

I have 489 family sponsored visa with 4 years valid. I wish to apply 887 visa as soon as i met the requirements.

From what I understand is as long as you can proof that you work at least 35 hours/week in most period of time during this 2 years regardless of public holidays then they would still count it as legit evidence.

I've searched some topics relating this in the forum because I'm applying visa 489 too.
As I know, dependant in visa 489 can become a primary applicant in visa 887

They don't care who the main applicant is, they only care if you hold subclass 489 or not. That's it.

G'Day,

I hold 489 SC Family sponsored Visa and I'm the Primary applicant. and my spouse accompanying me as the secondary applicant...

Now we are planning to apply for 887 SC visa... Questions are...
1 As I'm the primary applicant have some issues in prove the full time hours working for one year. Because I do a part time job and causal Job. So some weeks I don't get enough hours to meet 36 hours/week condition. BUT the secondary applicant meets the relevant requirement for more than 16 Months. Can any one tell with this, do we eligible to apply for 887.

2 And living in Designated Area... for nearly for 2 years... for the first few months I lived with my relatives house. to prove that I only have the Bank statements. Do you think that would be enough to claim those months for living the designated area...

3 For any reason do we need to submit any health insurance details during our stay...???

887 subclass visa application help

Hi,

Needed help from you all. If some one can share their knowledge as in how to apply visa 887(family sponsored) I will be applying in September this year, questions that I have are

1) As we need to provide address proofs for for living in designated areas. For that I have mobile bills and bank statements, Car insurace policy letter also my pay slips have address details on it so would that be sufficient proof. I don't have any utility bills under my name as I am living with family. Is there any other proof that I can use?

2) for this visa application we need to show that we have worked for one year. I can show my payslips for that period. Is there any other document that we need to submit. Do we have to provide any letter from the employer if yes, Is there any particular content that should be written in that? I was wondering if there is any template for that.

3) do we need to give reference letter from employer, document stating job responsibilities and contract letter etc.

And please tell if any other document needed as well.

Thanks,
Ace
