Hi there,

I am wanting to sponsor my mother on a 143 Contributory Parent visa. Does anyone know if she can visit Australia on a tourist visa while her 143 visa is processing?

 

thanks in advance!

Just got mine on 5 November, application was August 2014

Did you just get your 143 Parent visa?


173 Visa lodged - March 2016

(Big mistake in applying for a 173 and now realise we should have gone directly for a 143)

Expected 173 visa grant date - March 2021

Expected 143 visa grant date - December 2023

@SusieRoo did you submit your police clearance check from your home country at the time of the initial application or only once they received and started processing it?  Thanks in advance!

PVC will invite you to prepare documents, police checks, medicals and AOS later in the process. Don't do it at the time of application as police checks and medicals only valid for 12 months.

If you have just lodged, then the visa isn't coming in the next couple of months. The department are currently processing applications lodged about five years ago. However, processing times have recently blown out and you should allow about eight years.

Yes, but that's for people who applied in 2015 when the queue was shorter.  New people, joining the queue now, will have a very much longer wait (unless things change).

Thanks Marisa Im aware of that,  it’s just the way the original poster phrased it viz

The department are currently processing applications lodged about five years ago

If you look through forum posts, you will find a fair number lodge in 2013 just getting grant now. 

Visa processing times are blowing out and becoming very unpredictable. To give some context, when I applied for my first visa, processing took 3 days, today it is about 6 months. My PR visa took 5 days, today, it isn't uncommon to take 18 months. The remaining relative visa was about 8 years. Today, it is 56 years.
