  1. Ah - OK. So yours is a "vested interest on behalf of a friend" perspective. I'd not go looking for a great deal of fairness in visa processing - it is largely political, particularly currently. Best regards.

    Does my baby need a visa?

    You should be able to get another birth certificate - might be quickest to apply for a new one today? Best regards.

    Does my baby need a visa?

    Baby is an Australian citizen. Aus citizens are required to enter Australia using an Aus passport. Best regards.

    Does my baby need a visa?

    If you are permanent residents and baby was born in Australia baby is an Australian citizen - and a UK citizen by descent. Baby should obtain an Australian passport for the purpose of re-entering Australia. Best regards.
  7. Be very careful what you wish for ... Best regards.
  8. Not sure I follow the logic of this when the new subclass 870 visa has been launched with the specific intent of helping subclass 143 applicants bridge the increasing gap between submission of the visa application and the granting of the visa. Best regards.

    Capital Gains Tax advice PLease

    Thanks Ken. Best regards.
  10. https://www.sbs.com.au/news/labor-to-slash-parent-visa-fees-in-pitch-to-migrant-families Labor is vowing to make parent visas more affordable and accessible if elected at the May election. The Opposition is to announce the policy on Monday which would slash fees for three- and five-year parent visas by thousands of dollars. Migrant families would also be able to reunite with both sets of parents, removing the Coalition's limit of one set of parents per household. The 15,000 cap on places would also be removed under Labor's policy. Happy Easter!

    Parent Visa help

    Hi Steve. I'm heading to the UK tomorrow - you are very welcome to call the Go Matilda Visas office in Southampton when I am there later this week for a freebie chat about a parent visa strategy. Best regards.
  12. Yes, you need to drill down into the detail of the Regulations - which is what we registered migration agents are required to do. Best regards.
  13. On the same basis an applicant for a subclass 143 visa wouldn't be granted a visitor visa - and as we know visitor visas are granted to such applicants without too many problems. Best regards.
  14. Yes - you need to get the order/your visa strategy right! Best regards.
