  1. Hi, If your signature is correct with an application month of April 2019 then please wait very patiently for at least 7-9 years for any information seeking email or contact from the department. Let alone the 2nd VAC request.
  2. Hi, The email address is parents@homeaffairs.gov.au and you would need to put something in the subject line e.g. Subclass 143
  3. Congrats @SusieRoo, as pointed by someone here and looking at the people who are updating about more docs requested or their application progressing they all are 173 holders applying for 143. I haven't seen anyone who has applied for 143 to start with getting any requests or contact by DHA. Is that still the case? Or are there any 143 applicants being requested for more docs?
  4. Hi @Anash6, This is a 143/173 timeline forum for people who have already applied for 143 or 173 visas and share their status with others. For any info related queries please post it to and I'm sure you will get your queries answered.
  5. Not onshore and waiting very patiently for my mother's visa. The entire idea/suggestion of implementing such amendment is due to the only fact that parents are of an age that is the most vulnerable and the way this virus is spreading if we can restrict our old parents stay in Australia if they are already here where it might be safe than other countries (only assuming) than why not. How many times has a migration lawyer seen 8503 been deferred in such a scale as someone here only suggested that they have seen many of their applicants have received it in hours if not days. That was never the case. DHA has asked people to apply for new visas to avoid over staying and breaching visa conditions which is brand new work/processing I reckon and the fees is not that exorbitant either compared to the parent visa 864 or 143. Not trying to skip the line and make my way as I already said but just a thought to help in any way possible. One off amendments can happen in these unprecedented times. We are all in this together and can only do so much.
  6. With these unprecedented situation we are in and conditions changing everyday as a result government needing to hand out billions of dollars to support the economy and most affected, there have been so many changes already to make those into effect and help. I reckon govt needs to make some money or find new ways to do so. Even a small change in the law could be helpful I reckon!
  7. In my opinion, the Government should instead speed up the process and determine if there are any 143 applicants that are onshore and process their applications.. I'm sure they will be willing to pay the 2nd vac which would help government with some revenue instead of handing out bvb or asking them to apply for any other visa to stay in aus if their visa's are going to end soon.
  8. Hi All, I think @Alan Collett already mentioned about this but for everyone who are planning to lodge a 870 long stay parent visa before applying for 143 should read the latest update in the auto response from the parents mailbox. My interpretation is that if you apply for 870 or have an 870 prior to applying for 143 (if thats what someone is willing to do) then you are not eligible, people who have already applied for 143 and have an acknowledgement from the dha would not be affected.

  10. Sending a blank email to parents@homeaffairs.gov.au with something in the subject line.... it sends you an auto response with details about parent visa categories and their timelines something like this -

    Visa 47PA application. Question 65

    You need to provide permanent addresses for any country where you have lived more than 12 months. In your case as you stated you only lived in the UK, just provide you addresses if more than one. You need to mention the month you started living "from" and "to" for each address. if you have only lived in one house for the last 10 years i.e. from February 2010 to February 2020 then only mention that one address. hope that helps

    870 parents temporary visa

    You would need to have an online immi account and apply online for the sponsorship of 870. More information here - https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/sponsored-parent-temporary-870 toggle between "for applicants" and "for sponsors" button to get the relevant info.

    870 parents temporary visa

    Hi Arti, 1. Yes 6 years with 2 months every year counts for 12 months i.e. a year so you would need PCC for each country where they have stayed for 12 months or more. 2. To be honest its better to provide the PCC for sponsors at the time of sponsorship application, it speeds up the process. 3. At the time of when you are applying for the applicant i.e. your parent, again it does speed up the process if you submit all documents at the time you are applying as the AFP takes around 3-4 weeks and so does the Indian PCC. Hope that helps.
  14. Not sure which state you are based in and I can't say much about other states than South Australia. Here in Adelaide we have a few migration agents who conduct free early morning services to help people with their applications provided you yourself have done the hard yards and they will answer straight forward queries based on your case. And then there are a few who charge you for an hour or so to go through your file, application and documents. I myself used one and was happy to spend $150 for the hour different visa though but don't see it should be any different. So my say would be to contact few agents in your area (don't go the cheap ones as @Marisawright suggested there are few who are worthless) and if you think your case is straight forward and all you need is a professional to see what you have done spend that $150 or so and have the peace of mind!
  15. just sent a blank email to parents@homeaffairs.gov.au and this is what the response is.. hope that helps.. DELAY IN REGISTERING NEW APPLICATIONS We receive a very large number of applications each week. Please allow up to six weeks from when you posted your application for it to be receipted and registered. We will send an acknowledgement email confirming we received your application after it has been registered and the 1st visa application charge has been processed. If you lodged your application before the “Acknowledge New Application” date as shown in the assessment date table, check your junk mail folder for a copy of your acknowledgement letter. Please ensure you make our email address parents@homeaffairs.gov.au a trusted address. If you still cannot find your acknowledgement letter please contact us with the FULL NAME, DATE OF BIRTH AND PASSPORT DETAILS of the main applicant. Due to the high volume of emails we receive every day, we are unable to respond to progress update enquiries or to enquiries where the requested information is provided in this auto-response.
