  1. Hi My in-laws have just moved over from the UK to live in Victoria. They have applied for an Aged Parent 804 visa and are currently on a Bridging Visa A. They are 79 and 78. I just have a few questions I need clearing up if anyone can help. 1. Are they considered to be Temporary Residents 2. Can they use their UK Driving Licences indefinitely and can they apply for a Victorian Driving Licence? 3. What are their entitlements for Medicare (I have had so many different responses to this) 4. They have their UK Pension paid into a UK account then they will transfer it over here. What are the Tax implications? 5. Do they qualify for 1st time home buyers grant? Thanks heaps

    The Brand New PIO Parents Visa thread

    Hi Sorry to jump on this thread but I was trying to find some answers and I am struggling a little. Ive find bits of info here and there. My In-Laws are currently looking into applying for an Aged Parent Visa 804. They are both 75+ years old, 2 out of 3 of their children are Australian Citizens who can offer both sponsorship and AOS. I am just trying to give them the process which I have listed below but I am stuck on a couple of points. Currently on holiday if Australia on a visa without the No further Stay clause Visit the DIAC and apply for an Aged Parent Visa – Initial Cost $????? Submit Forms Form 40 Aged Parent Visa, Sponsorship Form & Assurance of Support Forms Cost???? Automatically issued with Bridging Visa A Apply for a Bridging Visa B immediately. Give sorting out house & finances in UK as the reason – Cost $?????? 1St Medical & Police checks to be carried out ?????? Travel back to the UK to sort out sale of the house and other business Return to Oz within the given timescale Buy a house and take out Medical Insurance 2nd Medical & Police Check carried out when moved to the front of the queue. Await issue of Visa Now that seems like it but I have a couple of queries: 1. What are the Visa costs and when are they due. I believe they get paid in 2 instalments 2. How much and when is the AOS payment due 3. When is the first medical & police checks done 4. What happens with their UK Pension 5. How is their Health covered. I know Recipricol Medicare is available but what does this cover and should they get Health Insurance too. What if they get very ill whilst on the Bridging Visa?
