  1. Thank you @Marilyn indeed a really useful booklet!
  2. Unfortunately it looks like the family aren’t in a position to pay for her care as stated in the article “Mr Rowe, who works full time in cleaning and maintenance, said he accepts the government’s determination that Ms Manley’s care will cost Australia’s health system, but believes the cost is justified because her direct relatives are paying taxes in Australia and it will only be for a short period of time due to her failing health” Possibly ministerial intervention could help due to her advanced age and the length of the journey to UK - which I also find draining and I’m a lot younger than this particulate lady!!
  3. If she had less than (I think) £23000 in assets then the UK state would pay for her but whether they would do it as soon as she arrived in UK I don’t know. She may have to prove “habitual residency” - not sure if that’s 3 or 6 months UK residence before claiming any kind of benefit For what its worth i think in the future we will see many more of these cases. According to some Australian reports there are far too many on bridging visas and obviously as the wait time for all parent visas get longer and longer ( non contributory 103 804 are allegedly heading for 30 years!)more old people will fall into this trap and I can’t see the Australian government just giving them all a blank cheque to stay as they will cost a lot of money. I’ve suspected for quite some time that bridging visas will mostly be abolished for parents for this reason - whether it would be a retrospective act I don’t know!
  4. Doesn’t matter how much you pay unfortunately - if you fail the medical that’s it!
  5. There is no 301 visa? If you mean 309 partner visa you are better posting on the partner forum as this is a Parent visa forum. Try here and click on “start new topic” https://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/46-family-partner-visas/
  6. Apparently bridging visa A as she applied for 804 - non contributory parent visa
  7. .......As at 30 June 2018, 48,595 applicants remain in the pipeline, an increase of 8.3 per cent compared to the pipeline of 44,886 applicants as at 30 June 2017
  8. Health requirements https://www.sbs.com.au/news/what-is-the-health-requirement-for-australian-visa-applicants-and-how-could-it-affect-you
  9. Wow!! signs of a crackdown?? https://www.sbs.com.au/news/exclusive-great-grandmother-93-could-be-deported-after-11-years-in-australia

    Do not apply for anything until you are requested to by immi!
  11. https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/research-and-stats/files/2015-16-migration-programme-report.pdf Contributory Parent The Contributory Parent category outcome for 2015–16 was 7175 places. Demand for places in the Contributory Parent category decreased by 567 applications (or 4.4 per cent) between 30 June 2015 and 30 June 2016. As at 30 June 2016, 29,591 clients remain in the pipeline, an increase of 16.1 per cent compared to the pipeline as at 30 June 2015 https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/research-and-stats/files/report-migration-program-2017-18.pdf Page 17 .......As at 30 June 2018, 48,595 applicants remain in the pipeline, an increase of 8.3 per cent compared to the pipeline of 44,886 applicants as at 30 June 2017. So in just two years from end June 2016 to end June 2018 the queue increased from 29591 to 48595 - and the number of visas actually granted has dropped from over 7000 to presently 6000 per year!
  12. End June 2017 - End April 2018 had 46745 in queue so end June 2018 probably around 48000
  13. No sorry. It’s taking 4 years for people who applied in July 2015 who are only just getting their visas now!! You're looking at at least 6-7 years from 2017. Only 6000 visas are being granted per year and the queue at end June was over 40000 - so the maths isn’t good try googling home affairs Australia for information on sponsor income etc.
  14. Hi Linda

     Just saying your application (June 17) and my parent's application (30 May 17) has been lodged pretty close to each other.  Hopefully, it goes smooth for both of us. Please note my email id - amsaini15@gmail.com in case you need to discuss anything as I don't check forum very often.
