Cont Parent Visa 143 and 173


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


This just an enquiry to see if anyone has used the 143 and 173 visa for their parent(s)?


Looking at the latest info it would seem that getting a 173, then coming over to Oz and once here applying for the 143 would seem the way to go, as there is a £6,000 saving to be made, at current exchange rates. Rather than just applying for a 143 straight off!


Has anyone's parents had the misfortune of coming over on a 173 and then not being granted the 143?


Just trying to get a feel of the best route for MiL.....it will be two years before she can apply, and, I know that the visas may have changed but I just want to get a feel for what/how others parents went about it using the above visas or any others that are currently available.


I look forward to your wise words.
