Can I please also ask you how you did your health check?
I heard 485visa health check resemble 189visa health check, except for HIV blood test.
So I am planning to do HIV blood test soon! So when do you think it is the best time to do it from your experience? I haven't even done my EOI yet, but can I do it ... like now.?

Hi Chorcor87,

How did you go with your offshore 189 application ?
Will the section48 not be in effect if we travel overseas on bridging visa B and can lodge offshore 189? My lawyer has advised me otherwise.

Please reply. Your experience will be of great help.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Radical,
I did offshore application and it took me less than 4wks to be granted.
I was on bridging B and stayed overseas 2nights and 3days(some suggests one week or even until the visa grant but i think for 189 it seems they are being generous on this process).

I believe offshore gets treated same as onshore. no disadvantage there at all from my experience.

I can introduce you to my agent if you need as they did the job properly and made it real fast for me at the end.

Cheers hope you go real well until the grant

Thanks for your quick reply. It is really good to hear that you've got the grant.

Could you please tell me when did you apply for EOI and when did you got the invite. Also, when did you apply for your 189 and the grant date?

sorry for asking too many questions. I am really stressed out about this whole situation.

when you've applied for MRT, do we have to apply for bridging visa B and is it easy to get it?

It would be of great help if you could provide me your agents details. Thanks.

I understand how stressful your circumstances could be.
I applied 189 on 25th of November and got grant on 17th of December.
If you are going oversea you need to have Bridging visa B and it is easy to get it. You just to have to walk into the immigration and fill the Bridging visa form and pay around $150. Staff will guide you what you have to do once you get in. You don't have to worry about it there too much.

Hope you get your PR soon! All the best

Congrats!
I'm in the same situation too. my visa 485 was rejected. Can you please introduce your agent to me, that would be great help.
And also, I have an invitation to lodge for 189 however only offshore though due to section 48.

I have some questions.
- Is lodging offshore application as same as in applying onshore?
- Is it wise to lodge and upload every required documents before returning back to australia?
- Am I able to pay for the application from any Australian banks?

I need some advice, thank you.

Hi there,

1. Is lodging offshore application as same as in applying onshore?
= This I was really worried too, but as I was granted in 3weeks I am sure there is no disadvantage of offshore application. And I was confirmed this info with my agent. So I am very sure there is no difference between onshore and offshore.

2. Is it wise to lodge and upload every required documents before returning back to australia?
= Well, I believe that is what my agent did.. So I would say YES.

3. Am I able to pay for the application from any Australian banks?
= U mean in cash? I believe you can as long as you know the immigration bank detail. I paid by check card and it was just normal payment process as other everyday payments.

Hope you do well with your plan

Hi chorcor87,
Thank you so much for replying

If you don't mind, I have more questions. here it goes:


If CO asks to provide more documents after in contact, we can upload that particular documents onshore, is that right?
and also did u have to go back to your home country to collect your visa 189 grant?

What happen to your visa 485 mrt application? was it successful ?

And lastly, may I know is your agent resided in melbourne. If he/she is, can you please give me the details.


Thanks again.
