  1. Hi all, I'm hoping for some advice from those who have experienced a similar situation. My parents are waiting for their visas subclass 143. I am their sponsor and only assurer. The AOS process has been successfully completed a couple of months ago. I have recently been made redundant from my job and now I'm trying to work out a couple of things: 1. Do I need to inform the Department of my change of circumstances as a Sponsor and/or an Assurer? There is a form to inform of the Applicant's changes, but what about Sponsors/Assurers? 2. Am I in trouble in regards to the AOS? I initially got really stressed thinking that because I'd lost my job I couldn't be the Assurer any more. However, after I've done some reading I now believe that once the AOS has been approved, I am finalised as the Assurer for the next 10 years whatever my circumstances are. This would work perfectly for me; I'm still willing and able to be the Assurer as I've got savings and don't think it'll be too hard for me to find a new job (however I wasn't planning to start looking until after the school holidays as I've got young kids and wanted to spend the holidays with them). Could anyone help answering my questions? That would be highly appreciated.
  2. Hey guys DEPENDENCY - The date my father lodged this visa, i was 17 yrs old and on this September ( 2014 ) im turning 19 yrs old. As per the visa criteria, a dependent should be under 18 years old.

At the same time I would also like to know the factors which can do to prove my dependency on my parents ? I may also inform you that lst year i took admission in BA part !, under the correspondence course scheme conducted by the university. Pls suggest me the evidence i can show to prove it to my case officer and how detailed i have to fill dependency questionaire. cheers rich

  6. I would like to ask professional advisers some questions about the main applicant of visa subclass 143 ( my family has just lodged the visa subclass 143 for 3 persons : my dad, my mom and my younger bro (dependent child on my parents) First, if the main applicant ( my dad ) passed away while the visa is still in its waiting process, can my mom and my younger bro still be granted their visa? Second, if one of them cant pass the health check, can others who pass it be granted their visas normally? Third, Can my family change the main applicant to my mother although the visa application has been lodged already? many thanks

    The All New CPV thread

    Just to let everyone in this category know that there has been quite a lot of activity in the last few weeks, and today were were asked for the 2nd VAC (application acknowledged 7 November 2007). Things have moved quite quickly recently. Let us know how it's going out there!
  16. Hello! I am not a Pom and no one in my family are, but I find this forum very informative for finding infos on visa sub 143 so I hope I am allowed to join the party.... We have just started the journey into CPV sub 143. My parents are gathering the documentations and I am filling out the forms. There are a few things I am not clear when filling the forms so any help will be very much appreciated: Form 47PA part B which is on withdrawing other existing parent visa application. If my parents do not have any existing parent visa application, do we still need to complete this part? (put N/A in "previously applied visa classes " and sign the form or do we completely leave it blank? Form 40, just confirming that my hubby will need to sign the "partner approval"? The applications are for my parents and 1 dependent sister. Also, I obtained Australian citizenship 2 years ago and I will be enclosing the citizenship certificate and Australian passport with Form40. Is it better if I also enclose a copy of my old passport & old PR visa as well? Just to show I have been hear for ages? Thank you.

    Submitting a 143 application

    My partner and I have decided to go the way of the Contributory Parent (143). I have Googled some questions but a few things are not plain to me. Can I apply online or do I actually have to print the forms out and physically submit them? Are printed versions of the necessary forms available from somewhere? (Dicky printer!) I note there is the main application form and others to be submittted by the 'sponsor.' Should these go with the mail form or should they be send to the sponsor (in my case my daughter) for separate submissive. As you can see, we are right at the start!! FB.
  19. Interested to know if anyone has recently got their case officer and medical lined up for CP 143 helen

    Medicals 143

    Hello all, Does anyone know the current processing/back log times of a referred medical? Thanks:biggrin:
  24. :confused: Please can someone help as we are very confused! We (that's me, hubby plus our 2 kids) arrived in Oz on a subclass 119 permanent residency visa on 2nd February 2009 and, thankfully, are very happy with our new lives down under. However, my poor parents who we had to leave behind are desperate to join us. When we first arrived, we were of the understanding that they couldn't lodge their contributory parent visa subclass 143 application until we had lived here for a period of 2 years. However, during their holiday here over the Christmas period my Dad decided to phone DIAC to enquire when they could start the ball rolling. He phoned on two separate occasions and spoke to two different members of staff who both stated that it was not necessary for them to wait until we have lived here for 2 years and told him that there was nothing to stop them applying once back home in England. On the strength of this information, Dad made contact with a migration agent, only to be told that he thinks the information Dad was given by DIAC is wrong and that they do need to wait the two years! :arghh: So who is right?! If there is anyone out there who can shed some light on this very confusing matter, we would be very grateful to hear from you. Many thanks. Tracy :wacko:
  25. Hi everyone, We are planning to send mum for her meds before we are allocated a CO for her PCV (lodged Feb09). The main reason is we’re planning her clean bill of health would provide a greater chance for the High Comm in Singapore to grant her a 12 month visitors’ visa before the grant of PCV. - Do we need to have a CO to provide a letter before we can go to a panel doctor to get the meds done? - Can I confirm the forms to use are: Form 26 (medical examination) and Form 160 (x-ray)? - The results are generally sent directly to DIAC. Should we quote the PCV reference and have the panel doctor send it to them although we have no CO? - Are we able to obtain a copy of the results/ reports for our own records? - Will POPC provide a written confirmation to us that meds are ok? If not, do we refer High Comm to POPC for cleared meds? My mum is planning to have a knee replacement surgery done on her left knee (she had her right knee operated a few years ago). Will this any have impact on the medical review by the panel doctor? I remember there is a section on mobility for her health check done recently by HSA Sydney (for visitors’ visa extension), the doctor had requested her to stand on one leg & lift the other leg. She will definitely not be able to do that after the surgery. Should she delay the surgery? Thanks for your help! :cute:
