    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
  5. 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
  6. 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).

    Parent visa application timelines (143 & 173)

    It’s a long time since I have been described as “junior” . Yes it is most odd

    Parent visa application timelines (143 & 173)

    Sorry a bit off topic but why are you only a junior member when others who are far less informative are members or senior members

    Parent visa application timelines (143 & 173)

    I think your only talking about a handful of people switching . We always knew we were going to take this route to PR but it had risks as it could have been changed easily at any time . I would be more concerned with the tourist visa/bridging visa/804 visa route which I believe seriously impacts on the amount of visas being issued .you only have to look here and Facebook to see how many are contemplating entry this way

    I don’t remember this either in the UK but I suppose some statements show the posters political views
