    Aged Parent shipping issue

    Hi Quoll , Thanks for your reply we have no other children. We did apply for the CPV a few years ago but didn't sell the house in time so had to cancel after paying a large amount of money for the first part. Nothing is set in stone yet. I have to say it's all very confusing they say you must be in Aus to apply for the aged parent visa so how do you get there if you can only get a tourist visa? It doesn't make sense. We knew about the no longer stay rule. I understand there is a visa also for parents who have all their children living in Aus. Like I say nothing is decided as yet and we have to sell our house before we make up our minds. The reason for the shipping question was so we could make some calculations as what to leave with the house sale. Thanks again.
  2. Hi folks I have just joined your forum. Could someone tell me if we apply for an aged parent visa 804 can we ship our goods before getting it approved? We have asked the customs to clarify this issue but their answers don't seem to match our questions. We have to apply while in Australia for this visa so would be in Aus while it's being processed. We have two children who live in Australia and have residency there. Apparently you get a bridging visa while you wait but that could take anything from 10 to 30 years!!! I'm 60 MMM the mind boggles. I think this is not as easy as it looks. I would be really grateful for any advice. Many thanks a very confused Mum.
