    Use for Cruise ships out of service

    I haven't been on a cruise ship but they may have the same issue as hotels - I heard a news report saying hotels are often inappropriate because too much carpeting makes them difficult to keep clean enough for medical purposes.

    Visitor visa 600: Length of Stay waiver Covid

    AFAIK, Immigration is more concerned about people keeping to the conditions of their visas vs. whether they're nervous of being exposed to the virus at the airport or on a flight. If they were unable to leave because they became too ill to travel, then I believe that's considered a valid reason to waive a No Further Stay condition and apply for a medical care visa. But if it's simply a matter of their visitor visa period expiring, then they need to leave Australia to avoid an overstay.

    Skillselect ENS 186 Timeline

    It happens sometimes, not sure if they can't see the document or simply overlook it. Best is to politely reply that you'd provided the document earlier but in case it's not visible in their system you are sending/uploading a fresh copy.

    Bridging visa A cancelled Help

    If you Google "Apply to have bridging visa reinstated" it should direct you to form 1005.
  5. AFAIK they assess the application based on the criteria at the time the application was lodged.

    457 questions (Yes that old visa)

    I assume your case officer would contact you via email requesting new police checks and you could then provide them by return email (if the status on your Immiaccount doesn't get changed back to "processing" which would I think allow you to upload documents). My company has had 457 visas granted that extended beyond the duration of the company sponsorship.

    Parent visa application timelines (143 & 173)

    I know this part of the topic goes back a couple of weeks but I was curious about this. From what's written in the legislation, I understand it to mean: - the parent is eligible for the 143 visa if they have a child who is a settled Australian citizen/AU PR holder/eligible NZ citizen. (143.211) - the parent can be sponsored for the 143 visa by the child, the child's partner, the child's guardian, an organisation (depending on the age/situation of the child). (143.212) However if they've been told by a registered migration agent that they are eligible to apply before their daughter gets her PR visa, perhaps there is some precedent for this.

    AAT appeal for 187 nomination refusal

    I've never heard of a "federal" visa so I'm afraid I can't answer your question.

    AAT appeal for 187 nomination refusal

    What do you mean by "federal visa"? Are you waiting for AAT review of the nomination? You'll need to wait for the nomination to be granted before they move onto processing your visa application.
  10. A PMV (Prospective Marriage Visa) does not have any requirement that you live together or have a de facto relationship at all, let alone 12 months. Instead you must provide evidence that: - you're both over the age of 18 - you've met in person - you have a genuine relationship and intend to have a married relationship after the visa is granted and you marry. I'm not sure if you need to also provide evidence that you're free to marry (i.e. neither of you is currently legally married) but of course you need to be free to marry within the 9 months of the valid period of the 300 visa. Even if money is tight, it would be worthwhile to have a consultation with a migration agent to help you both get your ducks in a row for this visa as well as the next steps (820/801) once you do marry. They may also be able to offer some alternative approaches you may not have already considered.

    187 Visa Processing Time

    It's simply not part of the design of the 187 visa. Under the 187 visa, the employer submits a nomination and the (potential) employee submits their visa application. So no need for any invitation process.

    187 Visa Processing Time

    There isn't an invitation process for the 187 visa.
  13. I think this is a family law question, not an immigration one. You'd be better off speaking with a family law attorney. As far as giving your ex some support, my suggestion would be to contact her parents and let them know you're more than willing to financially support your child but not based on your ex's demands and her refusal to have you declared on the birth certificate. Maybe her parents can talk some sense into her.

    Leaving Employer after 186 Granted

    AFAIK, the only costs the employer must pay is the training levy fee. The employer can require the employee pay the rest of it.

    URGENT! Student visa - BVB - 485 visa

    Will he even have the course completion certificate before his student visa expires? I'd suggest he speak with a registered migration agent to sort out the 485, and to delay any travel plans until he's got his visa and bridging visas sorted.
