Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatI wonder if some learned friends can help me. We applied for Visa 143 in January 2017, which will not get processed for at least another two years. So we looked at alternative/quicker visa options. One that was feasible was a Business Investor Visa sponsored by a state. Which has an upper age limit of 55. My wife who is 55 in March, has gained sponsorship from Queensland following her expression of interest. We now have less than 3 weeks to submit for the investor visa. The question that I have is if we apply for the Investor visa will we have to withdraw the 143 visa application? When we started completing the application for the Investor Visa the Immi website comes up with the following "Applicant ...... has other application lodged with the Department. However the un-finalised application may need to be withdrawn by advising the department in writing". Second question I have is the Investor visa is temporary for 4 years after which time you can apply for permanent visa. If we can only have one application at a time with Immi is it worth while withdrawing our 143 visa and thus loosing our space in the queue OR is it better to just leave our 143 visa application in the queue and forget the business investor visa? Any help or guidance will be gratefully received.
britsabroad posted a topic in Visa ChatLooking to submit a CPV 143 but need straight answers to a few Qs - I have read on the UK site also but read & heard contradictory info so any advice from anyone with experience of successfully applying for a CPV would be grateful. 1. Who can certify copies of documents - Heard and read a few different answers. Most will cost so where's best & cheapest. 2. I am visiting Australia soon could they be signed there by a JP and the visa posted there or does it need to be out of the country? 3. Am I correct that the Application needs to be posted to Australia and the Phase 1 cost paid in AUD. 4. What is the approx. total visa cost - There will be 2 adults + 1 child. 5. Approx. how long for visa to be granted.
Mickhs posted a topic in Visa ChatHi everyone, I am a permanent resident in Oz and I'm about to sponsor my parents to come and stay in Australia with me on visa 143 (PR), which costs 40k/ adult. There are some questions that I want to clear before they apply, would really appreciate you help My parents have a wholesale business in Vietnam that earns them quite a bit of money, my dad is 56 and mom is 51. Since I'm residing in Australia, they wish to come and live with me once they retire. But they also need to acquire as much money as possible before they depart and live in Oz, as they don't speak a lot of English and they won't be earning any income once they are here. They figure that they can earn enough for their retirement after 8 years from now. The nature of business in Vietnam does not allow them to leave their business for too long. So the maximum amount of time they can be in Oz within 9 years from now would be about 1-2 months. Meanwhile, they will still purchase a property in Oz and pay mortgage for it. I also have a brother, 15 years old, living with my parents in Vietnam. Therefore, he will be a under-18-dependant on the application. My parents have no other child. 1) I just got my PR recently, but I have been living in Australia for more than 2 years on other visas, and the immi website says that I have to be a "settled permanent resident". Can I sponsor my parents now or do I have to wait another 2 years to become "settled"? 2) If they were granted 143 Visa in say, Dec 2016, could they leave Vietnam to go and live in Australia in Nov 2021, just before the their PR expiry date, without a Resident Return Visa? After that, they won't be leaving Australia again for at least 2-3 years. 3) Is it possible for my brother to come and study in Australia on a student visa while my parents are waiting for their 143 Visa? If the 143 Visa was granted, does that mean my brother would become a PR and could permanently reside in Oz as well, with or without my parents being physically present in Oz? 4) It says on the DIAC website that they have to wait 10 years for full social benefit in Oz. Does that count from when they get their PR granted, no matter if they physically live in Oz or not? 5) Just to make it safe, does my brother still be counted as under-18-dependant if he exceeds the age of 18 by the time my parents 143 Visa is granted. Does his age count from when we apply, when we pay the second payment, or when the Visa is granted? I thank you in advance for any contribution, no matter small or significant. Regards, Mickhs
