Parent Visa options - HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hi All, first post on here so please bear with me.....I’m actually looking for some advice regarding my parents, Quick overview...my sister and I are both Oz Permanent residency visa holders, my sister emigrated to Perth in October, I will emigrate also to Perth in April this year (cant wait). My parents would like to emigrate with me, but we believe the rules have changed re CPV ‘settlement period’ times and the Oz immigration are holding fast on the 2 year rule….we were intitially told (about 3 years ago..) by our migration agent that this 2 year rule was open to interpretation. Anyway, my sister emigrated in October 2012 to Perth (there is only me and my sister in the family) therefore it looks like we’d need to wait until October 2014 before my parents could apply for their CPV, would I be correct in my assumption there?

In the meantime we’d like to have our parents with us in Oz for the maximum period allowed, we have been told that the 676 visa was the way to go but that they are now based on a 2/3 in 1/3 out rule…so… (apologies for the long windedness of this…)…..could my parents go in April this year with me on a 6 month long stay tourist visa, come home for 3 months, then go back out in January 2014 on a 12 month long stay tourist visa? The 12 month visa would take them to January 2015, and we’re hoping they could apply for their CPV in October 2014, and bridge their visa so they could stay with us in Oz for good?

 

Is all that possible?

 

Any advice is much appreciated

 

Cheers

The Problem with your plan is that a 12 month 676 will likely have 8503 no further stay condition attached therefore they will not be able to apply for the CPV in Australia.

Hi lebourvellec, thanks for the reply. As much as it wasn't what I wanted to hear I appreciate it, and the rules are the rules :-( so, have you an idea of what our options might be? Our migration agent mentioned maybe going into oz in April for 8 months, home for 4 months then back to oz next April again for 8 months whereby they would apply onshore and bridge, but would the 8 month in oz option visa also have the 8503 no further stay condition apply to it? As you can maybe understand my sister and I really don't want our elderly parents here in Scotland when we are in oz, we would worry, so the minimum time option here would be favourable. Any help again would be much appreciated. Also, on a related note, does anyone have an idea how my parents coud best insure themselves when in oz? Again any help very much appreciated.

 

Cheers

New visas, may interest you.

 

Tourist visas are usually 3,6,and 12 months, so staying 8 months would require a 12 month visa.

 

The evisa does not usually have the 8503 condition attached.

 

 

Get advice from a good agent, so you have a plan that they will be able to have a visa without no further stay when they are looking to lodge the application.

 

There is a Parent visa thread in the sticky threads, maybe some information may help.

Are they not already represented?

….we were intitially told (about 3 years ago..) by our migration agent that this 2 year rule was open to interpretation.

 

There is no reference to a current agent apart from this.

I don't think there is any change to the 2 year rule, it would certainly be too soon to be applying for their CPV a few months after the sponsoring offspring moved out and tht has always been my understanding.

 

It really is not possible to predict what will happen with tourist visa applications as they are looked at individually, so you can only try and see what happens. I thought I read something about an extended tourist visa for parents being introduced recently. I can't remember where but have a search / google around and see if you can find something on that.
