    You can ask as many times as you like - I'm not answering this one. Sorry. Best regards.

    Yes, with respect to the OP the question is a basic one - I anticipate there will be more questions if this is an indication ... Onwards! Best regards.

    It is poor etiquette to make a specific request of someone on a forum such as this. Best regards.

    Unfortunately a migration agent can't change the definition of who is a dependent child. Rather, the family in question should be contemplating how the sister/daughter will move to Australia in the absence of a visa through a parent visa application - and what they will do if she can't get a visa to move to Australia. Such are the harsh realities of moving to Australia and leaving family behind. Best regards.

    Is it safe??

    Respectfully, in my opinion you appear to be looking for a solution that probably doesn't exist. You might open accounts with different banking institutions that give you an ability to access a Government guarantee in the event of a banking failure, but even then as a creditor of a failed institution you could find yourself having to take a haircut in the event of a banking collapse: in such circumstances could a Government step in and actually have the financial ability to secure the interests of all depositors? You may have to keep your money under the bed and not go outdoors ... Stay calm, and don't panic! Best regards.

    There is never zero risk in matters financial. All you do is to seek to minimise risk - and remember the risk/reward conundrum! Best regards.

    As a rule there is no tax on a transfer of capital from the UK to Australia. You may be thinking of interest received from monies in a deposit account; once in Australia if you provide your TFN: * You will receive the interest without tax being deducted; no TFN and resident in Australia means tax at 47% will be withheld from the interest. * You include the interest on your annual personal tax return in Australia. It will then be added to your other income for the tax year and will be taxed when the tax assessment is issued to you. Best regards.

    Compare the sum you receive if using Moneycorp with (say) Barclays or NatWest. It might not be a "negligible difference" ... Recognise also that when using forex specialists such as Moneycorp the money resides in the client bank account of one of the High Street banks anyway. Best regards.

    How can staying longer than 12 months in an 18 month period be anything other than a breach of condition 8558? => Get a new visitor visa before the 12 months period ends. Best regards.

    If it is granted I'll be very surprised - so far as I'm aware there is no legal basis for a BVA being granted to your mother. The BVA application form is attached. Best regards. 1005(2).pdf

    I wasn't referring to you in the context of condition 8558. As a rule a 143 visa can only be granted onshore to a 173 visa holder - unless your mother has what is called a substituted subclass 600 visa. Unless I'm missing something in your mother's situation I'm not seeing a basis for a BVA to be granted to her. Best regards.

    I would be planning on the basis your parents do not breach condition 8558. I anticipate this may well necessitate lodging an application for another visitor visa. Best regards.

    On what basis do you think your mother will be granted a BVA? Best regards.
