  1. As long as your relationship did not 'break down' before your PR was granted, you will have travel rights for 5 years.

    Toursit visa for parent having Parkinson

    From some places a medical examination and possibly a biometric collection is required for any period of stay. https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/meeting-our-requirements/biometrics

    Cancer Survivor Visa Eligibility

    Immigration do not provide medical clearances, that is up to a MOC (Medical Officer of the Commonwealth) whose opinion is conclusive and binding on all parties. BUPA currently have the contract. In some cases where an applicant does not meet the health criteria a waiver can be exercised. The health criteria are one of the most complex areas of migration law and have recently undergone significant revisions. May suggest that you consult a registered migration agent for advice about strategy?

    If your agent is a registered migration agent, you should consult your agent and be guided by the advice you receive.

    updated of Carer visa 836

    Immigration tried to delete carer and some other visas, but the senate blocked them, so they dribble out a few each year, which effectively eliminates many applicants. A first instance refusal of a carer application, leading to an AAT review, can be expected.

    Visa options after 417 ends? 31 yr/o

    Subclass 489 has been deleted. Having applied for PR, the chances of satisfying the Genuine Temporary Entrant criterion for a student visa are about zero.

    Which visa will be easiest

    From what you have posted, completing the preliminaries such as skills assessment, Expression of Interest and so on, would be unlikely to result in a invitation to apply for a visa as an accountant under the current criteria. There are no cheap or easy permanent visas. May I suggest that you consult one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum for an assessment of your visa prospects?

  13. From what you have posted, the ACS skills assessment will not be good for general skilled migration. If you email copy to: visa@pinoyau.com I shall have a look at it for no charge.
