    Parent visa application timelines (143 & 173)

    I'm around the same timescales as you. So near and yet so far
  2. Hi does anyone know of a Bank Account I can open before I get my visa granted? (Preferably a savings account)
  3. Hi I've submitted my Form 80, had the medical etc. Is there any way of checking with Immi the status of the medical ie if I need further tests? Is it possible to link the application to my Immi account? Cheers Angela
  4. Hi this post is for the uninitiated, like myself, so you don't get caught out like we have. Even though I have an agent that could have explained this! Assurance of Support (AoS) If you're going to need sponsoring for your visa, your sponsor will need a Centrelink Customer Reference Number (abbreviated to CRN) They need a CRN to enable them to apply for the AoS on the Centrelink website. Centrelink is the Australian benefits department. If your sponsor has never needed to claim benefits, it's possible they don't have a CRN. The only way to get a CRN is to queue up at the dole office (Centrelink), wait your turn, and get registered. This can't be done online. Centrelink are open 08:30 to 16:30. Monday to Friday. Therefore, if your sponsor is working, it means taking time off work. Mine happens to have no holiday due, so is proving to be a pain. I would say mention this to your sponsor before you're asked for your AoS to be lodged, could be years before, as once they have a CRN it will be easier further down the line. They can go into Centrelink in their own time, perhaps a booked day of leave etc. And are ready when ever your case is picked up I hope this info is accurate, if it needs amending then let me know and I'll edit as necessary.
  5. Yes me too, this Centrelink thing of having to register in person is a real saga. My daughter has no holiday due, so I don't know how we're going to get it done. You'd think that it would be possible to create a CRN online, we do our police checks etc online which is an identity check
  6. Hi I need some help! Registering the AoS is a saga! My daughter hasn't claimed benefits in Australia, would she have a Centrelink CRN? If not, what is the easiest way to get one. All phone calls are ending with no help as they are information lines, which it tells you after 10 minutes on hold Any suggestiobs would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Angela

    Is that for a 143?
  12. Thanks @nadette24 for the info. Having to do a medical and x-rays is surprising! Was it a 600 visa?
  13. OK thanks, I saw there was a 600, I started applying for that but got worried what boxes to tick! So bailed out. Is there anything I need to specifically tick to make sure I get the right one? Is that £140?
  14. Hi I have an application in for a CPV 143, I would like to do a bike tour in Australia then visit my daughter, which will take longer than the eVisa length of 3 months. Can someone point me in the right direction as to which online visa I need to apply for covering 6-12 months please?
  15. You could try someone that's flying over to Australia, with the F1 in march they'll be loads of people going! PiggyBee might be useful to find someone https://www.piggybee.com/en/
