Can you share any relevant site or news where the govt has concluded this analysis? I tried google but didn't find anything. Just curious.

You just need to know where to look ... 🙂

Also - see pages 26 and 27 of the attached Productivity Commission report.

@MELBNGSM even though you may get approval soon remember they are all on hold until at least the end of May. I guess when travel restrictions between Australia and say the UK for instance lift, they will then Re start to issue  🤞

AOS application accepted on 03/04/2020 (just got MyGov notification).

Hi - yes it is a great news but as you may know that things are on hold for people on final stages of visa until end of May and then reviewed.
AOS is purely a CENTRELINK process which is independent of DIBP. DIBP needs a positive outcome from CENTRELINK for AOS and that’s what we have.

Aus has declared 6 months restrictions due to Covid-19. Hope that it should not affect 143/173 visa processes for six months.

Here is what the new auto response says. They do say that processing is continuing. Finalisation is on hold for the moment. 

Hoping for the best ! 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE

Processing of visa applications is continuing, however finalisation of many Parent Visa applications will be put on temporary hold. The situation will be reviewed in late May 2020, and further extension/s will be provided if necessary.

 

As soon as we have advice that restrictions at our Border have been returned to more normal arrangements, the Department will update information on the web site.

Hi guys,

My parents applied for 143 visa in 2016 and they have only received the aknowledgement of application since then. no AoS or anything yet. My brother is the sponsor for them and he travelled overseas late last year to work there, is there a way to replace him by myself as a sponsor? 

Thanks
