Trouble finding "Aged Parent 804 form" on "Immi account"...

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Long time no speak to some.

 

I'm having an issue trying to actually find and fill in the Aged Parent (non contributory) 804 form for the MIL on her "immi account" page.

 

Below is the 804 on the immi website:

 

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

 

Which states "Apply here" but all that does is take you to the fillable in PDF, which you can fill in and save onto your desktop (but not the actual immi account page)

 

My issue is, once we have logged into the Immi account there is no where to actually find and commence the 804 form. the only options available are the most common ones. (you can click find visas but all this does is take you to the homepage again....)

 

Does anyone know how to get round this issue? I assume immi are making it tough to actually do as they will (I'm led to believe) be closing this visa option soon (again).

 

I also note that you cannot commence any of the parent type visas online (in your immi account).

 

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated, i'm going mad and the clock is ticking....

 

Many thanks

It doesn't appear to be a visa you can apply for online, so I assume a paper application is your only option.

It is a paper based application - forms 47PA and 40.

 

To be delivered to the Parents Visa Centre.

 

Best regards.

You can expect some of the applicants to die waiting, so the wait might be less then even 30 years.

It is also possible that the minister might 'cap and cease' them. This was good for a laugh last time it happened.

*****************************************************************************************************************

 

Under section 39 of the Act, the minister has the power to set the maximum number of visas of a class that may be granted in a particular financial year. The cap and cease provision means that when a cap has been reached for a particular visa class, work on all applications which have not been processed to decision stops and the files are closed. These applications are treated as if they have not been submitted. This provision is only used in exceptional circumstances.

***********************************************************************************************************************************

 

Please don't tell me I put 'only' in the wrong place, the above was a cut and past from the DIBP.

Hi Westly.

 

In the present political climate I doubt a cap and cease instruction would be used by the Minister in the context of 103/804 visa applications - IMHO.

 

This isn't a cohort of applicants that is likely to be troublesome to administer.

 

Best regards.

Au contraire, JTC!

 

I think the threshold requirements for lodging a valid 804 visa application are low.

Russell,

 

But once its lodged, it in the system...then you can then get a bridging visa if you leave to go on holiday....
