    864 Contributory Aged Parent Visa

    You would need to budget about $60 000 to cover the visa application charges (first and second instalments) the Medicae bond and ancillary charges, such as medical examination, police clearances and so on.

    Estranged child medical check for visa 189/190

    May I suggest that you consult one of the registered migration agents who post on this forum for a preliminary assessment of your case and advice about the strategies available to deal with the medical examination issue? You will then be able to make an informed decision about how to proceed.

    Estranged child medical check for visa 189/190

    If you have a non-migrating child who is not in your custody s/he is usually still required to undertake a medical examination. It is sometimes possible to present a case to avoid this.

    Partner visa 801/820 Interview??

    Interviews were once mandatory in partner cases, but they are now rare unless there is an issue with an application and are often conducted by telephone.

    Tourist visa denied - no reviews allowed. Help?

    For accuracy, there are ways of being sponsored for a visitor, other than by family, for which refusals are reviewable.

    Tourist visa denied - no reviews allowed. Help?

    Unless they are family sponsored, visitor visa refusals are not reviewable on the merits by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. All refusals are reviewable by a Federal Court on a point of law. This would cost thousands and would almost certainly take you nowhere nowhere except the bank. May I suggest that you consult one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum for advice about visa strategy?

    Visas being stopped

    That is about right for the number of visas available for application. There are many more that cannot be applied for, but are still valid for those who hold them.

    Limbo 🙃

    Over the years I have had clients lodge perfectly good applications to be informed 5 or 6 years later that they had been 'capped and ceased' and would be taken never to have lodged a visa. For more search 'cap and cease'
