    Sub class 600 visa for 6 months?

    We used “homesforexchange” which I think has been taken over by love homes swop . We really only used the site for introductions . The hardest one to arrange was the first as we were in the dark and were probably over thinking . Once we were in Australia we visited future couples to swop with to check compatibility as some swops took 2/3 years to happen . We stayed in some lovely properties and did not have any big issues .

    Sub class 600 visa for 6 months?

    We did this for 10 years before our 143 visa came through in 2020 . We arranged house/ car swops for each visit in the Perth area , the swops were between 2 and 6 months all with different people . Although we only wanted Perth we must have received 600 requests to swop over the years , our property was a three bed in Cambridgeshire . No money changed hands we paid UK bills only .

    Wordle (and other word related games)

    I always use adieu always gives me a start
  4. Looking at your previous posts I think your parents are on a bridging visa having applied for the 804 visa . I think it’s a new application and you forfeit the previous fees.
  5. Our switch was in 2020 see timeline below . Would think that the 143 has been full and yours will come into the next years allocation
  6. Thank you fot that.

    How you guy's finding Perth ?

    We had 16 year’s in Brisbane but fancy a change , plus the long summer humidity was getting horrible in the end for us .

    Moving to Perth from uk

    We moved from Cambridgeshire to Perth in 2020 and paid £4250 for a 20 ft container . It took exactly three months door to door . We used Pretloves of Saffron Walden & Epping after getting a recommendation on here after having many quotes from the bigger movers . There was only very minor damage and no extra charges at this end . We only took out minimal insurance to cover specific items .

    Parent visa application timelines (143 & 173)

    I think there were other parent visa classes 103/804 etc included in the yearly grant figure

    Parent visa

    How do you get prescriptions for $6 on the 143 visa , I thought you only got that if you hold a Commonwealth Seniors Card and the issue for that it is income related plus four years at least on PR

    Parent report is in!

    The quoting of time delays on the processing of parent visas is odd . The 143 states 58 months which is where they are processing now but the 103 states 30 years but they are processing 2012 now .

    Aged parent visa

    Is this an answer to my question regarding over 75 years and medicals . Maybe it’s for 600 but not for 651

    Aged parent visa

    Are all visa applicants over 75 required to have a medical before issue of visa . When we were having our 143 medicals we met a lady who had been instructed by IMMI to have a medical as she had reached 75 and had travelled many times on a tourist visa and this was the first time she had needed a medical
  13. No we were in the UK at the time and our daughter in Perth did the transfer , but it can’t do any harm sending a copy
  14. You have been busy I hope the visa comes quickly , ours took 3 months after paying second vac due to Covid restrictions at the time (see timeline).
