  1. I know that B.E. has their parent visa thread......why dont we have one? All parent visa applicants.....here is your own thread in order to ask questions, chat, moan and groan....whatever you wish! Good Luck to you all and looking fwd to hearing from you x
  2. Please post timeline updates and queries here as people are getting annoyed by this subject on the main parent visa topic.
  3. Hi all I wonder if anyone knew if their was a time limit from 143 permanent resident visa being granted ,and having to be in the country , I have had a snag in paperwork medical , police , all accepted but been since July 2 AOS
  4. My wife and I are considering applying for a 173 visa to join our only son, who is now an Australian citizen, and family in Australia. I know the waiting lists are long and costly but we are prepared to give it a go. So, my question is this: After applying for and hopefully receiving a 173 visa, which I believe lasts for 2 years, we then apply during this 2 year period for a 143 visa to live in Australia permanently, what happens after the 173 visa runs out and before a 143 visa is granted (or probably even looked at given the current waiting times)? Do we have to leave Australia or is there some sort of bridging visa until the 143 is decided upon? Thanks.
  5. Hi everyone, Sorry if this question has already been asked somewhere in the forum. It just seems like there is no direct answer and is a bit confusing. I am planning to apply for a visa to bring my mum permanently to Australia. I was initially thinking of 143 and have already prepared the documents. However, I wonder if the 173 - 143 path would be any faster... Could someone please advise if applying for 173 visa and then for 143 visa brings my mum to Australia sooner than applying for 143 straight away? Is it true that these two visa classes are in the same priority queue and have the same processing times? Thank you very much
  6. Hi, we are switching my mum-in-law from 103 visa to Contributory Parent 143 visa. The queue date for 103 visa is 18 June 2015. We have paid the application fee for 143 visa and sent the application on 29th of June this year, and have received an Acknowledgment Letter on 27 July 2019. In our understanding, our 143 application should be processed with effective queue date 18 June 2015. However, the Home Affairs department has not mentioned about the queue date in the Acknowledgment Letter. Has anyone converted 103 visa application to 143 visa? What was the effective queue date? Not sure what is the best way to contact the department as their phone operators do not have access to the file. Any recommendations? Thanks
  7. Hello my brain trust, Situation - I am the PR living in Aus, sponsoring for parents 143 living in offshore. I am the only child for my parents. Currently filling form 47pa. Main applicant - Dad partner - Mom. 1. Part H - Do I have to fill mom details again there ? Or my detail(Only child, settled in AUS) ? Part F is already filled with mom details. FYI 2. If it's gonna be my details in Part H - Do I have to fill Form 47A(FYI - Sponsor) ? 3. Part J - details of other family members. DOB is asked. But both of my granny's don't have birth dates proper. Is it mandatory or we can leave it blank ? Thanks in advance. Sakthi.
  8. Hi there I am wondering if someone who has lodged a 143 themselves can help. We have paid the fee required to lodge the application and will be sending the documents today to WA. As it is a paper only application how do we receive confirmation that the application has been received and put in the queue? Will we get an email? Thanks for your help we haven’t lodged a paper application before
  9. Hi All, Has anyone recently arrived in Australia with Visa Subclass 143? Would like to know if any other document is required other than the declararion online plus all Covid related test (such as PCR) Do I need any other documents? I am planning to go to Australia in September.
  10. Hi Can parents who have an active 143 application travel to australia on visitor visas frequently until their 143 is processed or the case officer might consider them as risk of overstayers ? Any other consideration ?
  11. Hi All, I am a permanent resident waitingfor my citizenship ceremony which should happen online. I have decided to apply for my parents contributory visa 143 for mum and dad. I would be extremely grateful if someone who has/is been through this process to help me with the following questions: 1. Should we attach police checks with form 47P right now or wait ti be requested. 2. What are the time frames of Aos and Vac 2 requests from time of application? Also what are these amounts sitting at as of this date. 3. Does it matter if parents pay for VAC 2 themselves? 4. What documents have you submitted to show your residence in Aus as the sponsor? Does house lease , bills and Visa grant suffice. 5. Income threshold if I apply as sponsor with my husband . We have 1 child of 9 yrs. 6. Once Vac 2 is paid is PR guaranteed. 7. Any other advice or info you would like to share with a stressed out person who has just gone through a million forms and fees.

    Queue date for 143

    A query. What is meant by the queue date ? We lodged our 143 application in April 2017. Got an acknowledgement a few days later but no other communication after that ??? In the acknowledgment, we received a position number . What does that mean ?
  13. Hi everyone, I’ll try and keep a long story short here. But it roughly goes. Visa Application in uk/ moved to Australia 7 months ago on tourist visa/ diagnosis of cancer/ likely refusal of visa My Parents applied for the contributory parent visa in feb 2015 in the UK, my sister and I, who are their only children,have both been living in au for 8 years as permanent residents. Mum and dad decided, after the announcement of their 4th grandchild’s arrival, that they would move to be with us from the UK our husbands and the children on a years tourist visa in April 2019 knowing that they would have to go offshore for the result. 3 months after their arrival in Australia my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer and has under gone one radiation treatment round and some hormone therapy here in Australia. Yesterday, after a 3 years and 10 months a case officer is assigned. And we have been told by our agent that if his doctor estimates that he will cost the Australian health service more than $49k over the next 5 years he will not be entitled to the grant of the visa. Initial correspondence from the doctors office are indicating that this price tag will be exceeded. Assurance of support, police checks are all sorted but now we are facing a huge problem. My parents were initially told 24 months processing time, it has been nearly 4 years I guess I’m just after some desperate advice and to see if anyone else has gone through the same or similar situation. Or to contact anyone that can give us some information on this particular situation It seems so unjust that my dad, who is only 64 years young my be refused this visa. my sister and I our partners and our children love my mum and dad dearly,they have sold their house in the uk and shipped everything to Australia. I’m just at a loss.....
  14. Hi.... We are waiting for the 143 having our application acknowledged on 08/11/2016 and just wondering how the ongoing pandemic is going to affect the 143 visa. Just read that they are cutting down on some others especially the low skill temp visas. Anybody here in the know if the 143 visas might go up or be further reduced? Thank you for sharing.

    Hello all

    Hi All, we are new to the forum but not to the visa process we applied back in December 2017 with an acceptance of lodgement 11th. We opted to hire an Australian visa expert not sure if this was the right option but hey..We both know the applications have slowed down and understand it’s a long old process, congratulations to all those who have been through this already. Having looked at the Auz gov web site today we can see the report is that new application could be in excess of 58 months, this TBH is where my mind is at the moment. if anyone has any information about where we can find out our queue place overall that would be appreciated or just any other info you have, this is the longest queue I’ve been in, currently even M&S has a shorter Q and that’s saying some thing.
  16. Hello everyone I lodged the application for my mom through an agent. Is there anyway I can register to receive notification of that application? I want to check the process by myself. Does anyone have experiences in this case? Thank you!
  17. Hi there, I'm desperately seeking information/advises relating to my situation. We applied 143 contributory parent visa for my dad. My dad suffers Parkinson's disease for 8 years. He is 73 years old, and probably on the stage 2 of the disease which has 5 stages. That means that despite some symptoms, he is dependent and able to complete normal physical tasks. However, we start to worry that if his medical condition could be a problem for him gaining the visa. If you could share any information, experience or advices, it would be much appreciated. Thanks Chris
  18. Anyone have any experience applying for Visa subclass 143 for a parent with peritoneal dialysis? I’ve spoken to a few migration agents and each of them only said that it is a case by case basis and there’s no way to know for sure. Would love to hear about your experiences if anyone has been in the same situation.
  19. Hey everyone, I applied for visa 143 for mum back in Jan 2016. We received request for documents on 1st Nov 2019: form 80, police clearance, medical, AOS, etc AOS bank guarantee submitted: 12/02 AOS application approved: 19/02 We thought the hard part was over, but this morning we received an email requesting for police clearance for my dad, who is not migrating. Now, mum and dad are still married, but living separately - not divorced, so no legal documents to prove separation. I dont know if dad will comply with the request to provide police clearance. Not sure why we need a police clearance for dad, when he is not part of the application? Can someone please advise? in cases of separation, would my mum still need to provide police clearance for dad? thanks, L
  20. My mother has applied for 143 few months back and currently in OZ under visa class 600 with 12 out of 18 months condition. Is there anyway to extend her visa so she can stay 3-6 months extra for her grand-son's birthday? Any advise Appreciated.
  21. Hi All, I am enquiring about the 143 Contributory Parent visa in the Dependent Child matter. I have already applied with my family as a dependent child, and the visa has been acknowledged on the 29/07/2016. The rule at that time was: the dependent child can be under 25 years old, but it needs a proof od dependency, after that, they have changed the rule on the 17/11/2016 as the dependent child could only be under 18. My question is, am I still be included because I have applied before the rule has been changed or they would reject me as the new law would be applied? Help Please Thanks!
  22. https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2019L01496 A Legislative Instrument has been published today which reduces the number of available parent visas compared with the 2018/19 program year. In summary, there is a ceiling of 6,096 visas on the number of Contributory Parent visas for the year to 30 June 2020. For the previous year the ceiling was 7,175. For non CP visas the 2019/20 ceiling is 1,275 (1,500 for 2018/19). The ceiling on the granting of CP Visas includes 125 visas that are available to subclass 410 and 405 visa holders who are seeking permanent residency under the pathway that opened 12 months ago. Best regards.
  23. Hi All, This is my current situation: * Im Aus Citizen and married, no children. * I want to bring my MOTHER via Parent 143 visa * Im the ONLY child she has ( No other children ). * My mother is divorced from my Biological Father, * She got re-married and got Divorced from that one too ( No children from that marriage ) but my STEP FATHER has THREE Children which are over 18 years of age (and not dependent ), and not living with them. they are all in different countries other than Australia and USA (where my mother lives currently) Question 1: Since Im the only child that my mother have, and she had NO Connection with her former partners step children , and since she is divorced now, I shouldn't have any issues with family balance test ? Question 2: Do I even need to state those children's details in my mother application ? I mean she has no connection and she has no details of them either Question 3: In Form 47PA Application Question 57, Part H : "MEMBERS OF THE FAMLY UNIT AGED 18 YEARS AND OVER", I dont have to p=include my details here do we, Since Im he sponsor ?And we dont have to include my mothers former partners children ( they are over 22 yeas old and not dependent ) Thanks in advanced FYI : https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/contributory-aged-parent-864/balance-of-family-test A stepchild is: your current partner's child, or your former partner's child who is under 18 years of age and in relation to whom you have guardianship, custody or a parenting order in force under the Family Law Act 1975. Stepchildren born from polygamous or concurrent relationships are not counted in the balance of family test
  24. There are several requirements that must be satisfied before reasonably considering lodging an application for an Australian parent visa. To help those who might be considering applying for a parent visa they are summarised here. The balance of family test must be satisfied. This requires that at least half of your children live permanently in Australia, or that more of your children live permanently in Australia than in any other country. Those who do not satisfy the balance of family test may be interested in the proposed new temporary Parent visa Applicants must have a sponsoring child who is “settled” in Australia. The subject of settled sponsors is discussed more fully here If applying for a subclass 804 Aged Parent or subclass 864/884 Contributory Aged Parent visa: The main visa applicant must be “aged”, this being the age when you are eligible for an Age Pension in Australia All applicants must be in Australia when the visa application is submitted to the Department of Immigration, and when it is granted If applying for a visa while in Australia a condition 8503 (No Further Stay) must not attach to the visa used to enter Australia. If applying for an offshore visa (subclasses 103, 143 – with a one step visa strategy – and 173 are offshore visas) applicants must be outside Australia when the visa is granted. Sufficient funds to pay the 2nd Visa Application Charges – currently AUD 43,600 per applicant – must also be readily available when a Contributory Parent visa application is approaching finalisation. For some, this will require careful management of the visa application process to ensure liquid funds are to hand at the appropriate time, as the Department of Immigration requires remittance of the 2nd VAC within 28 days of the issuing of the request for payment.

  25. Hi, The second installment for my parents contributory visa subclass 143 has been requested. Can someone shed some light if you were able to pay the sum of vac2 split in 2 payments within the allocated 28 days required. I want to see if I can pay 80K by bpay and 7K by credit card. I tried ringing immi and they didn't have an answer and instead asked me to forward the question via email to pvc team. TIA
