    Helpful.thank you he is married with his own business and it would be too much of a worry.

    Visa 804 aged parent visa

    We have full medicare cards but they should not have been issued as we do not live here. We told them but they were not interested. So an earlier comment said 804 holders qualify but 804 applicants (on bridging whole waiting 30 years for grant?) aren't???

    Visa 804 aged parent visa

    I understand the reciprocal but under "if you have applied for a Parents visa" following your link it reads "you can't enrol if youve applied for an 804 or 103 parent visa", you can enrol if you have a permanent subclass 143 or 864".

    Visa 804 aged parent visa

    According to the visa office yes but medicare site says 804 holders are not entitled. Why is it all so conflicting.?

    Impossible decision

    I even phoned the relevant office to see if our residency was still live as we had medicare cards. They told us if we didnt have Australian passports because they would have insisted on that, they didnt at the time, then we are not. Shame.

    My present prescription would be $70 a month at the moment but it all adds up over the years. Apartments are ok but the body Corp here is $15000 upwards a year if they have facilities and if they donf they are old and tiny with no outdoor space unfortunately.

    Visa 804 aged parent visa

    Is anyone aware what medicare entitlement is granted on the 804 and/or the 864. This 3extra tax is crushing. Now wondering if we should consider buying property in our son's names to avoid all extra penalties but not sure of the ramifications of that.

    Visa 804 aged parent visa

    According to Home affairs website 804 and 864 WE would be entitled to Medicare on either Visa. However I believe we would pay for Private Medical to cover the gap. Interestingly we went to Medicare to register for insurance purposes and they say we are still on the system from the 80s. We told them we did not live here and had not for 30 years but she issued cards!!

    Land tax and surcharges

    Thank you. We are hoping for NSW but interesting to read. However I think there may be an annual threshold and at the moment any land over and above 700k ish is liable- I believe. We are trying to find an accountant and/or a solicitor to advise urgently plus we have asked the visa agent. We had a one hour paid consultation with him last week. We may have to pay again.

    He says if we applied for that one first and it was refused it would prevent us from being able to apply for the 804 for which is why he suggests we do the 804 first and might even prevent us from coming here on an annual basis to be with our children as once you have had a visa refusal they can continue to refuse you

    This is from my wife. How strange. I am happier thinking long term than short. Long term I would live here. Short term I am so confused and distraught I want my home but we would lose the opportunity to then live here. But working out the costs to actually make the move is crippling too . It comes to over $300,000 just to pay stamp duty, shipping, agents, estate agents firb, private medical, tablets etc etc. Tgats a lot of our capital gone! I too wish someone would knock me out and wake me up in the right place all done and dusted.

    We have discussed that with the visa agent and normally if you have been away from Australia for more than 5 years it is generally not possible however because the circumstances that took us home and kept us there were more or less beyond our control they think we might have slight chance but we would have to put in for the 804 or 864 first
