  1. Hi my partner and i are perm residents along with one of his brothers, and his parents are here on a temp retirement visa. they are just about to apply for a 143 visa, just wondering how long they are taking at the moment? also there other brother lives in the uk and wants to come out when his parents are residents as last remaining relative. His parents have lived here already 3 yrs, so does that count towards the wating period for sponsoring, or is there still a waiting period? thanks tracy

    CPV subclass 173 to 143

    Hi Everyone, I have a query about the Contributory Parent Visa subclass 173 (temp) and the CPV subclass 143 (permanent). If you apply for and are granted the 173 and decide to apply for the permanent 143, do you need to have medicals done again please? Or is it a paper exercise? Are there any advantages to obtaining the CPV 173 then moving over to the 143? Regards, June

    Contributory Parent Visa 143

    I have been recently granted a permanent resident visa 886 (state sponsored). My parents consider applying the contributory parent visa 143, and I am going to sponsor to them. However, I am somewhat confused with the term ‘settled resident’. I am concerned about the application would be refused because I am not an eligible sponsor for my parent. Some background information below: I have undertaken full time secondary and tertiary studies from May 2001 to Nov 2008 on Australian student visa. I started working part time in an engineering consultants company in Melbourne as an engineer assistant from July 2006 to Dec 2008, and become a full time engineer since Jan 2009. I was granted my permanent resident 886 on 20 April 2009. I have a car with market value AU$15000 and renting a property in Melbourne. I am the only child of my parents. Based on all these facts, I would consider myself as a settled resident in Melbourne. Please! Can any one give me some guidance on this? I want my parents come to join me ASAP.
  6. We are applying for visa subclass 143 and we were wondering how long after the application is submitted a medical health check will be required and roughly how long this takes to complete as we thought this would be a good time to put our house on the market? Is the wait for approval still two years?
  7. Welcome all and thank you for reading this post... we seem to be getting some conflicting info on Visa Costs so perhaps you guys can help?. My parents want to move to Oz. Therefore, is the total main cost of the visa (as per Immigration site is 1st instalment $1420 2nd instalment $32 725 plus aos bond of AUD 14,000 plus other misc stuff like police checks, meds etc, Are these prices for one parent or both? Thank Nick

    visa 143 and benefits

    Hi Hope somebody can help me. My parents have been here for over 4 years on a permanent parents visa 143. We have sponsored them for $10, 000. They are struggling at the moment. My question is can they claim any low income benefits and will they be taken out of the bond. My dad turns 65 in january but I'm pretty sure he can only get his uk pension not the AU one. Mindy

    143 Meds Result for my dad

    My parents currently are in OZ by holding visa 676 (tourist). They applied 143 May 2007. Two days ago they had meds in HSA. Today we received a letter in regards to his x-ray result. Saying' it has revealed an abonormality which may indicate past exposure to tuberculosis(TB)'. "will be required to attend nominated chest clinic for a review". The nominated chest clinic is at Royal North Shore Hospital. We are shocked by this letter. Because my father came oz by visa 676 very year since 2006. As per the requirement, he was asked to have x-ray tests very time when he applied tourist visa (cos it is 12 month period). He just had x-ray last year in May and never have problem at all. How come he got TB past exposure? Maybe he got it when he is here since June 2007? We really can not accept the fact. What we worry about is whether it will affect his visa application? What is the next step for meds review? What method they are going to take to detect active/inactive TB? For sure, their application will be on hold until it is fixed. How knows how long it will take to get the review result? If my dad has active TB, will my mum be granted visa? We all worry and worry.... I feel very sad when i think about worst things might happen... i love my parents.....and they love to see my son grow up here.... Please help if you have similar experience. THANKS lOVEPUPPY

    A question for anyone who has had to sell there house to pay for their parent visa, How long after the 30,000 dollar payment is made do we have to wait for the visa.
  17. Hi Jo, I'm new to the forum but saw that you've been thru the CPV and ur thru the other side still smiling, so hope u don't mind me asking a couple of q's and saying hello... we've got a migration officer (but don't feel as comfy asking him these questions...) he lodged our visa application in sept 06, last week we finally heard it's being "processed" PURE JOY!!and they've deducted the money from my credit card...so does that mean I've got a case officer then?? and roughly how long after them starting to process do u get the medical and police check request...and then how long til u actually get it granted?? Just from your experience..sorry, I know ur not a migation agent LOL!! Just nice to hear from someone who's been thru its experience...the waiting is killing us...(well more me, I have less patience than hubby and can't wait to be back in oz) Next step once we are there is to go thru my parents...so similar to you!! Thanks for listening...Hope ur enjoying life out there... Clare in London but dreaming of Bellingen...

    contributary parents visa 143

    hi can anyone help. i am aware of the cost of 1st installment of $1,340, 2nd instalment $58,660 for myself and my husband, and also the bond $14,000. Is there any other costs including hidden costs that we should be aware of. Phyllis&Benny
  19. :?: Have received request for 2nd VAC and this to be paid by 18th October - could someone advise me please - we need to make payment by a bank cheque drawn on an Australian Bank or drawn on a bank that has representation in Australia. Please can someone verify that we can have a bank draft drawn up from our a/c at Barclays Bank as they are linked with Westpac in Oz? Our local bank seem a bit vague although my OH has spoken to someone by phone at Barclays who said it would be o.k.???? :roll:
