Good morning, Tony
Good mood is restored today!
Very many thanks for explaining this whole issue in terms that I can now understand fully and stop growling about because I can now see how the logic stacks up.)
I'm also mollified by the CPV fees for 2009/9. George Limbard put a thread on BE abut these last night. $30 is not worth worrying about so there is no significant loss to my friends.
Another query though, please?
I now accept how this thing works in relation to "Child 2" described in Alan's article. In Alan's example, Child 2 holds a subclass 475 SIR visa, which does seem to use the term "provisional" in its title (according to the DIAC website, though that could be descriptive only.) Plus I note that the website does say "provisional" rather than "temporary" in relation to the sc 475 visa.
But how far does the Duke of York argument extend, please? Would it also cover Child 2 if s/he:
Presumably it iwould not extend to a situation where Child 1 is an Aussie Citizen but Child 2 is in Oz on a Student Visa?
- Holds a subclsss 457 visa; or
- Holds a temporary Spouse visa?
Many thanks & best wishes
