  1. From the website it is 6000 for the Entire Parent Visa categories - Migration Program planning levels (homeaffairs.gov.au)
  2. Hi All, I applied for my Mum's 143 in July 2017 and according to the numbers from the spreadsheet I reckon we will still be waiting till 2024 for it to be processed to the next stage. Just wondering If I can swap the 143 application to a 864 application (provided there is no 8503 on her 600 grant notification) and if so will there be any consequences on her timeline? Will her file get a new queue date? Any help is appreciated.
  3. Hi All, Does anyone know how can I find the parent visa spreadsheet that use to float around in this forum? The one that showed how many applications were made monthly. Thanks in advance.
  4. Hi All, Has anyone recently tried to send the blank email to parents@homeaffairs to get the status of applications and dates etc. There used to be some information at least previously but now they just send you a BOLD and HUGE font email with no info at all.

    143 Contributory Parent visa

    Hi there, yes you can apply for a tourist visa while the 143 is under processing.
  6. Great, that's what I was thinking as well as the applicant application should be the one that would make it an application. Thanks for clarifying @Alan Collett, as always your swift replies are much appreciated. Regards
  7. Hi All, One of the conditions to apply for 804 is not have already applied for or hold a Sponsored Parent (Temporary) (Subclass 870) visa when applying for this visa What I would like to clarify is if someone has recently started the process of 870 and only applied for the sponsorship part will that be considered as "already applied for" as per the above clause OR is it when the applicant has applied for the 870 is when they consider it to be applied.
  8. The email is parents@homeaffairs.gov.au. However, I haven't been able to receive the auto generated email for a while now.
  9. Last day of this financial year, hoping to see movement for the visa approvals and additional documents from tomorrow onwards. Fingers crossed!
  10. Hi @tonys, congrats on getting some contact from the department regarding your application. may I know your current status? are you onshore or offshore. Not that it will make a huge difference as your lodgment date is April 2016 and there were few may 2016 applicants also getting their files processed, but just for information. thanks

    870 parents temporary visa

    True, wasn't there a lodgement period of 6 months once the sponsorship has been approved. Or has that been extended due to Covid?

    I hope you realise that until there are clear instructions from the Prime Minister about the borders opening for international visitors, you won't be able to get this visa granted.
  13. Hi All, Has anyone sent an email to parents@homeaffairs.gov.au recently and received the automated reply? I have tried a few times and haven't got any response. Cheers
