    Parent visa application timelines (143 & 173)

    Here is what the new auto response says. They do say that processing is continuing. Finalisation is on hold for the moment. Hoping for the best ! IMPORTANT NOTE Processing of visa applications is continuing, however finalisation of many Parent Visa applications will be put on temporary hold. The situation will be reviewed in late May 2020, and further extension/s will be provided if necessary. As soon as we have advice that restrictions at our Border have been returned to more normal arrangements, the Department will update information on the web site.

    @MELBNGSM This is excellent news. Some signs that there is some work going on at DIBP. Congratulations on being a step closer!

    Thanks for this and the insight really helps. But do you know if they are even asking for further docs to keep the queue moving. Then keeping everything ready to a stage where the 2nd VAC is asked for only once the borders open?

    That's good. Looks like the folks in DIBP are still doing some processing.

    Yup. I am trying to find out if anyone else has had any correspondence from the department as well. As long as we all keep sharing and communicating on this forum it will help understand how DIPB is progressing.

    I hope this is only for those who have already done the payment of the second vac or perhaps the AOS has been finalised. Which would mean they are ready for visa grant. Praying that they still continue to process applications and take them to a stage where just the last part ie. 2nd VAC needs to be paid. It will save us all the anxiety and stress of seeing nothing at all happen in the next few months. This way it will at least keep things moving. Even if it's slow it doesn't matter.

    Well let's hope and pray that that's not the case for every parent's sake who have been waiting so long.

    Hi All, Hope all are safe in the midst of the COVID chaos. Are there any more May'16 or perhaps any June'16 who have been asked for further docs? The last one I saw outside this forum was for 19th May'16. Please do share. Thanks !

    I have come across only one application so far that is a May 2016 application where further docs have been asked. Hopefully May applicants will be picked up soon.

    Looks like it will start moving again. I know of a May 2016 applicant who was asked for further docs as well. Fingers crossed

    Just as an example , I knew of a guy who had one parent and his brother as a dependant. I believe his brother was over 20 years of age but definitely a student and dependant on his father. His application took longer than the others who had applied with him. It was longer by a good 2 months or so. Perhaps the assessment is more in depth or something on those lines. Not sure what the matter is in your case.
