Parent visa update

Recommended Posts

"Further Update: Senator Hanson-Young's disallowance motion against the Migration Amendment which ceased a range of visas including the non-contributory parent, aged dependent, carer and last remaining relative was successful.

Therefore, these visas can now be lodged again. There will likely be further information on this later today or tomorrow."

All being well, there should now be a 6-month window in which to file new applications under the previously closed Parent Visa classes listed above.

Message now updated on the DIBP website.

 

For example, at the Aged Parent subclass 804 page:

http://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/804.aspx

 

This visa was previously repealed and closed from 2 June 2014 until 25 September 2014. Applications are now accepted for this visa.

 

If you lodged an application during the period when the visa was repealed then you need to lodge a new application.

 

Good news for many, I think!

The link supplied by ALAN above provides the official notification on the reopening of certain classes of Parent and Family visa classes.

For those interested in applying, please note that only 1500 places have been allocated to Non-Contributory Parent visas, and 500 places to Other Family visas, for the full period 01 July 2014 - 30 June 2015.

Based on this, the authorities have estimated the current waiting times for such visas as being:

"Non-Contributory Parent visa – approximately 30 years

Carer visa – approximately 4.5 years

Remaining Relative and Aged Dependent Relative – approximately 56 years.

And here's the question.....to qualify for an Aged Dependent Relative visa, you need to be 65 years old. If you have to wait 56 years to get one, does this mean you need to live as long as some chinese woman lol, or should you start applying for one when you turn 9 years old?

Hi Richard.

 

All the people I speak with are aware of the long waiting time - or at least they are after we've spoken!

 

And most aren't that bothered, because they are mostly ex-UK and have access to emergency treatment under Medicare while in Australia on a Bridging Visa through the Reciprocal Health Care Agreement. Their main issue is being able to live in Australia with the children and (usually) grandchildren, and not have to fork out over A$100k for the privilege.

 

The Motion being passed is definitely a win for such parents and their families.

 

Best regards.
