Hi. Can someone shed some light as to what the income requirement of a sponsor is? I read that it's taxable income of  CAD83+k. Do they really mean taxable income or annual income? Cos if it's taxable income, it's a lot right?

It is annual taxable income, and yes it is high.  It was increased significantly about 3 years ago, as can be seen from this table. (AUS$).

143 Application Lodged 24th June 2014; Acknowledgement 6th February 2015; Form 80, Police Checks & Medical requested 21st Sept 2016; AOS Lodged 29th November 2016; 2nd VAC paid 16th December 2016; VISA GRANTED 20th December 2016.

Heading to Wollert "The place where possums are found", Victoria (eventually)

"Eventually" has become a reality - at long last the house is sold, the car is spoken for, the Movecube is coming on 19th September 2019 and I'll be heading Down Under on 21st via Royal Brunei.  Arrive in Mebourne 3.30 a.m. their time on Monday.  😎

I was under the impression this had been scrapped due to a big campaign against it? 
 

A better  idea of what’s is needed is here

Hello,  I really hope it all goes smoothly for you, it’s such a stressful time. Remind me are you flying in Melbourne or was it Sydney after all the problems you had with the flight cancellations?

Thank you - it certainly has been a stressful few months.  I've become a bit of a nervous wreck! It was Melbourne originally then Sydney then Melbourne again!  The first two were cancelled and after that we had a choice of Sydney or Melbourne.  My heart said Sydney because the flight was sooner but my head said Melbourne because that's where we're headed.  Didn't want to risk a border closure between the two and end up with a double quarantine!  I'm almost daring to believe this might happen!  Five years on Sunday since we applied.  Did you manage to get any one-way travel insurance or were you with Emirates?  I think they include it don't they?  I'm not sure who to try - I realise I've left it a bit late but better late than never

Yes I got it online with insure and go, it was cheap enough. We were with emirates but you don’t get travel insurance included. Just dare not travel without it in case we are Ill and need to be hospitalised abroad. It happened once on a flight to Oz a few years back, a man had a suspected heart attack and we landed in Sri Lanka to treat him.  He didn’t want to get off as he didn’t have insurance but they made him go to hospital. 

good luck and safe travels

I can see the parent visa grants are not as many as there could have been but I’m more struck by the fact the partner visas were given a temporary one year huge increase to 77300 - and yet very few - 26993-  were actually granted!  A much bigger percentage drop than parents,  even though potential parents grants were originally reduced in planning levels for 20-21  and potential partner grants increased! 
 

You can see in this table at 31 Jan 2021 they had already granted 3468 visas for parents in totals.  Must be sitting on a few cases now if no grants left?

Thanks for this.  We did actually travel without it in the end - that's the first time ever but guess we got lucky because we're safely here now and are just beginning our 2 weeks quarantine.  It's been a long journey - just 2 days short of 5 years but looking forward to being with our son and grandson again.  Good luck to all those of you still waiting - hopefully things will improve in due course

PiK type Test in the subject line or anything really and you should get the auto-reply message back. Check your junk or spam folder too as it may have been filtered out of your inbox? It is working.
