  1. Hi, I have applied for 143 CPV and the documents were delivered to Perth office on 22nd November 2021, my parents are due to fly on 10th of December and we still haven't received any acknowledgement. Fees were paid on the 18th November, is there any email address/contact number where we can try to escalate?

    143 to 804

    We're in the queue for 143 visa but given it's still a long way from being granted we are considering switch to 804. We are in Australia on 651 for 7 weeks. I know we put 804 application in, get bridging visa A and need to apply for bridging visa B before retuning to UK to pack up/ sell up. We completed all the forms again (for 804) but wondering if anyone can help with a couple of queries please? 1. When we submit 804 application and payment, how long does it take to be granted BVA? 2. When we then apply for BVB, how long does it take for that to be granted? Also, not related to the application, but if we eventually sell investment properties in UK and buy investment properties here, is the FIRB application fee the $5,600 shown on their website (per property under 1mill) or is that just to find out how much the FIRB fee is for the property you're buying? And does FIRB fee still apply if you buy new-build? I checked their website but can't work it out. Thanks in advance.

  4. Hi All, Not sure as this will be my first time arrive at Sydney Airport after I have got my PR. Do I need to walk to the gate where it has human? or I can use Smart Gate to come through? Anyone has experience?
  5. 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.
  6. My mum came to Australia last year for a year. And before her visa expires I applied for V600 which still in process. They gave Bridging visa A for the interim until they approve V600. Both her kids (me and my sister) are Australian citizens. So we want to apply for Aged Parent Visa (804) while 600 visa processing is ongoing. Can we do that? What are the consequences? Your response will help us.
  7. Hi My wife have two sisters (so total 3 kids). My wife is Australian citizen, her elder sister is US citizen and younger one is Canadian citizen. We are thinking to apply for our father-in-law and mother-in-law for parent visa in Australia. Can we apply for them?
  8. Hi All, I have been granted Parent visa Oct 2020 - (so my initial entry date is Ocr 2021) - I'm planning to go to Australia by September 2021. I go through the "travel exemption" page and click on PR (not sure if my visa is equal to PR yet?) Other than this catalog I do not see anything that can be related to Parent Visa (provision) at all. Can I book and travel to Australia at the moment? Any procedure I have to follow?if I can
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.

This will take the AOS payment for a main applicant to AUD 15,000 and the secondary applicant's payment to AUD 6,000. There are also increases to the income requirement for assurers, effective immediately.
  14. Hi all My parents have now been here 5 yrs total and the past 2 years on a permanent parental sponsored visa. We live in QLD and I applied for a senior +Go card for them thinking this is the one to help reduce their prescription costs ... however apparently its not .... I assume it must be the commonwealth seniors card ???? Mmmmmmm are they even entitled to apply for it under their visa conditions or is this one of those things under the 10 year waiting times with their visa .... I know there is no centrelink entitlement until the 10 year permanent is up but Im not sure about this ... also want them to be able to access the Govt free dental clinics .... can they even do that ??????aghhhhhhh very confused Hope someone can help & advise. Cheers Kerry
  15. Hi forum members, My parents are here on subclass 600 VISA with 'no further stay' condition since Jan 2018. They intended to stay until Jan 2019. But as I plan to apply for their 143 PR, I am travelling back to India with them and lodging the VISA application from there. After lodgement, I intend to have them back here in a month's time with the same subclass 600 VISA they currently have. My questions are: 1) Will the same 600 VISA they have allow them to enter Australia after applying for VISA 143. 2) Will I get any acknowledgement / letter / email saying the 143 application is accepted by PVC so that I can get them back here after that. 3) Once they are here and go back after having stayed a cumulative 12 months in the tourist VISA, how soon can I apply for another subclass 600 when their PRis in progress ? 4) I am their sponsor, so am I required to be in Australia when the PR application is couriered to PVC ?
  16. Hi, I am new here. Sorry if this has been answered before but I am having some issues while trying to fill up Form 47pa for my parents. In the information section, it is stated that we have to put "N/A" on fields that are not applicable to us. However, there are so many fields that are not applicable like the Part B, which is the withdrawal of parent visa application. My question is, do we have to put "N/A" on all blank fields or only fields that state (if applicable). Another one is the payment information. Do you guys pay before submitting the form while attaching the receipt to it? Or do you guys have your Credit Card details entered in Question 71 and the immigration guys will deduct it directly from the card? Also, if you have paid it online, do you still need to fill that section out or put "N/A" Kind Regards, Damien.
  17. Hi everyone, Just a quick question if I may... How does one prove the total number of children for the Balance-of-Family Test? Say I have 3 siblings, each of us has a birth certificate with our parent's names on them and our parents have their birth certificates. Do we just submit the birth certificates of the 3 children? How do they know there isn't a 4 or 5th child somewhere (not that there is) . I'm just wondering how we prove this? It's not like there is a family register that we can include to prove that there's only the 3 of us. Do I provide a statutory declaration in addition to the birth certificates? The other bits about where we live is easy as 2 of us live in Australia and the other is back home. I couldn't find much on the spanking new "www.homeaffairs.gov.au" website (I kept looking for the older www.border.gov.au site in Google...but you get re-directed anyway). Thanks in advance... Justus.
  18. Hi, just wondering if anyone has any advice as to what health insurance they got when they went on the e600 visa? My parents are currently waiting for their 173 visa to get approved but want to come over for longer than 3 months on a tourist visa so are considering the e600 visa so they can stay longer but the issue is health insurance as their home policy won't cover them if they are out of the county for longer than 6 months, any advice or recommendations would be appreciated, thanks, leana
  19. Hi all My in-laws are planning to join us ASAP. We have been looking at both Contributory Aged and Non Contributory Aged routes. They are aged 70 and 71. We thought we were pretty set on Contributory, but having looked at it again, we're not sure! As far as we know (and please set me straight if any of this is wrong) on the Non Contributory they get: - Bridging visa whilst waiting for grant (which we know will never happen, so they effectively spend their life on bridging visa) - They get reciprocal healthcare via UK agreement with Oz whilst on bridging visa - including access to PBS (although prescriptions not as cheap as if they were residents and not 'visitors' on a Bridging visa) - Cost is much much less than Contributory! It's only the certainty that appeals for Contributory. They wouldn't even get Medicare and full PBS until 2 years after grant, so given waiting list for Contributory they'd be looking at 5-6 years of paying anyway. What are everyone's thoughts? Anyone been through this?? Contributory would use up a massive amount of the money they do have. Thanks guys, any advice appreciated as we're going round in circles.

    Queue Date grant- unfair

    My parents applied for 804 Aged Parent visa in Oct 2009. Unfortunately, Dad was diagnosed with Cancer within 6 months of applying for visa. In 2012, Department contacted us for health & character assessments for garnt of queue date. Case Officer made a data entry error in the email address whic caused the delay for initial assessment. My Dad could not pass the health checks. Mum passed health & character assessments for grant of queue date. The application was refused by the Department in 2012 due to Dad no meeting the health criteria. We filed an appeal with the Tribunal (AAT). The AAT hearing was postponed due to Dad's ill health. Dad passed away this year in Feb after a long battle with Cancer. AAT remit the application to the dept. Our requests for showing compassion to grant a visa was totally ignored by AAT & Dept. Now Dept has put my mum in the queue but we got a queue date of feb 2017. Can someone please advise when my mum met the requirements for the grant of queue date in 2012 (should have been 2011 but due to dept error email for health checks was not received) then why she is pushed in the back of the queue?
  21. Hi All, I have been looking in to the IMMI site about parent visas lately as I am planning to get my parents down to Melbourne. I noticed that the Non-Contributory Parents visa waiting period has hiked to 30 Years. Now I am looking at Contributory options. I am the Only child and I am planning to proceed with an application within the next year or so. I noticed that there is a deposit of $42000 per parent (correct ?) that need to be kept with the DIAC. My Concern is after paying such money what benefits would my parents get once they come to Australia? I know its a broad question - but if you guys can give me a direction, I would appreciate it. Regards, Mark.
  22. Hi all. Currently trying to get the outlaws through the 143 visa process. I was looking online to try and find advice regarding the timings of the medicals and police checks. I came across what appears to be quite a helpful guide for those wanting to apply for a 143 visa. Before i posted it on here I wanted to check if a couple of points were correct. In the guide he states that the medical and police checks still need to be valid (eg done in the last 12 months) on the day the visa is 'activated' in australia. Personally, I thought that as long as your police check and medical were valid when your visa was issued you had 12 months from the date of issue to activate your visa (regardless of the age of your pc and meds). What does anyone else think? Who is correct? (please say me or it's gonna be panic stations in our house!) :wink: Cheers Pez
