    Visitor Visa- VACCU Referral

    Well, it's been a while since I posted in here but once a pom in oz always a pom in oz eh! I'm hoping someone can give me some hope for my daughter's subclass 600 for a surprise visit to bring her baby twins to meet the rest of the family over Xmas. Flights are booked for 27th December and her partners and the babies visa's are all approved. Unfortunately, yesterday she was told that her application has been passed on to VACCU and they are now terrified that they will not get it back in time. She has a spent conviction from when she was resident here two years ago which we assume is the reason for VACCU. At that time she was being processed for a 457 but due to the terrible time she had living here decided to head back to the UK to settle. Immi were fully aware of this however the 457 appears to have been left on her records which may also cause some confusion. She has passed on police checks for both Aus and UK and character references to support her application. Does anyone have any suggestions of how they can proceed or is able to give me hope that I will see my grandchildren....
  2. We are planning to apply for my mother in-law to come visit us for a few months, about 6 months probably. It will be her first visit and she has not applied for the parent visa. I am a citizen and my wife is a permanent resident, and MIL is 60yrs old. My main question is whether or not we need to sign her up for visitor's health insurance as a requirement for the visa to be approved. Second question, do we need to write a letter of invitation? third and last question, do we have to have thousands saved in our bank accounts as proof of access to funds? she will be in our house and living with us, so there are no additional costs for accommodation and food and things like that. If there is anybody who has done this before, please let me know what you did. i was thinking a modest bank statement, pay slip, and maybe credit card statement...? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hey guys, back to this forum again and feels great.........! I am planning for a week's holiday to Tokyo in April. I require a tourist visa to enter Japan and am prepared to get one. How easy or difficult would it be to acquire a Tourist visa for a family of 3 to Japan for a Australian permanent resident? Has anyone been in my shoes before? How much cash would they need to see in the bank? Do they accept credit card (funds available) balance? Do they generally interview you or is it just the docs they need to see? I tried calling the consulate's office in Sydney and the person i spoke to wasn't that helpful. Can anyone shed some light on this?
