Contributory Parent Visa 47pa (subclass 173) Processing times?

Recommended Posts

Anyone recently had their 173 visa approved?  How long did you have to wait?

Just about to apply for mum who recently became widowed. Not sure whether to apply offshore on onshore.

Thank you

Melanie

There is a very long wait - I applied on 30th October 2015 and still waiting - have had no contact and probably looking at another 7 months wait before being contacted so the quicker you can apply either way the better - btw you have to be off shore to apply for the 173 or 143

Hi, we applied March 2016 and are still waiting. Our agent has told us it could be another two years before we get a case worker!!!!

Hi, is this for the assurance of support? Also when did you have your police and medical checks done?

No. This is for the actual visa. We've got 28 days to pay, but I'm watching the conversion rate every day waiting for a good day to pay it. 🙂 Police and medical were done back in March, but my wife had to have an operation after something the medical people found which has delayed us a few months.

Hi, so when were you allocated a caseworker?.

Not sure when a caseworker was allocated as we've been using an agent all the time, everything has been going through them and they email me whenever they need an answer to something.

Thanks. We are going through an agent too. We applied March 2016 and have been told it could be another 12 to 18 months before we get a caseworker. As soon as we get a caseworker we will put the house on the market so we can pay for the visa. It’s just the waiting isn’t it !!!

I don't know how long it is before a caseworker gets assigned to it. If it is 12 to 18 months, I don't know what they find to do to stretch it out to 3 years plus before they tell you to pay for it?

I'm not an expert, but I don't think selling your house when you have a caseworker would be a good idea? It would still take about another 18 months before they start telling you about paying for the visa.
