    Parent visa application timelines (143 & 173)

    Linda, I already know that I’m going to be checking that queue every month for the foreseeable future, and trying not to get too depressed if it doesn’t tick along well! Sue

    Very frustrating! Our queue number is 29,060, which is close to another five years wait! 2017 was certainly a big year for applications. I do agree though that it’s good to have clarity on where we sit in the queue.
  3. Yes, we’ve had to be realistic about timeframes as well. It’s disappointing for both parents and our Australian offspring but we just have to be patient, which is easier said than done! This forum is very helpful and supportive, I’m glad I found it.
  4. I know it is frustrating; our wait time has gone from 3 years at the time of application to roughly 6 probably, but to be honest we are just grateful that Australia offers parent visas.

    The weather in Devonport Tasmania today

    Hi! We’re back in Launceston visiting our daughter, son-in-law and little granddaughter again. Absolutely glorious weather this past week, although yesterday was pretty hot at 32 degrees. Much cooler today but still clear blue skies and bright sunshine, just lovely.

    Contributory Parent Visa

    We applied in November 2017 also. We are expecting to wait around another four years.

    143 which form?

    Yes, thanks, I think that’s where I’ve remembered it from. When the AoS increased dramatically for a short time last year, I remember noticing that the amounts required for the Assurer differed according to whether they had children. Some time yet before we get to that stage

    That’s great, thanks!
  10. We might consider doing this, as we are a similar timeline to you, a few months later. We need to sell our home first though, which is likely to take a long time. Will watch your progress with interest! Good luck.

    Thanks very much for the reply which was most helpful. Our daughter has been an Australian citizen for several years, her husband was born there, as was our granddaughter, so nothing needed from our end. Cheers!

    143 which form?

    Hello, I’ve been following this excellent thread for some time and am now hoping for some advice. We are a British couple who applied for 143 visa in November 2017 and since then our daughter and son-in-law have had a baby daughter, born on 1/1/19. I am pretty sure immi need to be informed but I don’t know if we have to do it, or our daughter as our sponsor. I’d be very grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. I’ve had a look at the form for change of circumstances but it’s not me who’s had the baby which is how I read the form! Many thanks.
