Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHi all My husband and I emmigrated to Australia from the UK to be with our son and grandchildren. After getting advise that our single daughter would come here on a LRR visa, we were led to believe that a Last Remainign Relitive Visa for her would be straight forward and quick, taking no longer than three or four month. She applied in March 2010 and received her queue date of 6th September 2010. Suddenly it seemed that there was a restriction of people allowed in on a LRR visa. Why were we not informed there was a waiting list until after she had applied(via an agent in the UK). Why was my daughter required to get police check and health checks for which she had to pay if there were no visa's available? Why were we so misinformed? We fell in love with Australia and came here to be part of our grand childrens lives, but the fact that our daughter is alone and so far away has blighted our lives. The only information we have been able to obtain from Visa, Immigration and Refugees-States only 195 places were available. We have asked how many people are on the list in front of our daughter? Apparently this is impossible to say-WHY?. I can understand that the number could be reduced, through people dropping out but how can the number rise if you are allocated a certain date.? CAN ANYONE SHED ANY LIGHT ON OUR PROBLEM, PLEASE
Hi, i would appreciate your help greatly. Our story goes like this. My finacee entered Australia on a Last Remaining Relative visa in April. Now we are trying to make a Prospective Marriage Application for me. On his visa it was stated that he can not marry before first entry, code 8515, therefor we didn't do anything before he left. After he arrived there he proposed to me via skype and we are officially now engaged. My question is, will there be any problems because of his type of visa? We can prove that at the time he had applied for his visa we were not dating. But he got his visa last October and had to stay here for 6 months, during what we decided to be together. Thank you in advance.
Hi All My first posting but have been following for a few months and its a great forum with lots of useful information. I applied for my LLR visa last year from offshore and have queue date which would put me in the 1.5 to 2.5 years bracket (based on the table http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/family/other-family-visa-queue.htm ). Not great but better than the 6 years that it looked like it could be. However I have already done the medicals and the police check (at the request of the CO) before it all went pear shaped around July. So my question is what do you think the likelyhood is of having to do them again - not bothered redoing but at a few houndred quid a time it's not a cheap process. I have asked if there would be a refund but the responce was (understandably) guarded as it said '...as appropriate...'. Also does anyone know if there will be a queue like the parent visa that tells you how many people are ahead of you? And if I can stretch to one more - when will the immi site be updated to reflect 2011-2012 figures and priorities. Thanks in advance for any replies Arilla
Woohoo!!!!! After a trek on buses, ferries and more buses to Sydney CBD, I submitted my 835 LRR visa this morning. I was in and out within the hour and was lucky enough to get permission to work whilst on the bridging visa - YAY :biggrin: !!! The chao I saw was great, although obviously having a bad day himself, he was completely professional and personable. A word of caution for others placing LRR visa's - on or off shore.... there doesn't seem to be much awareness within the DIAC offices of this visa (apart from the scripted bits) as they don't process many. Onshore ones are sent straight through to Canberra. I am aware that this has been alluded to before on PIO, however after witnessing it first hand, my advice would be to always bear it in mind when communicating with the offices... (you might know more than them) So... the long wait starts for me now. Fingers crossed that it will all be processed cleanly and swiftly. At least its 29 degrees and the beach is about a 4 minute walk away so it could be much worse!!!! Thanks to all who have wished me well - I will keep you posted... Cx :jiggy:
