Contributory Parent Visa 143

Recommended Posts

What happens if one one of the two parents in a joint application dies before the visa is granted?

Apply for a refund of the visa application charge.

Thanks but does the application move forward for the remaining applicant?

Clauses 103.321143.321173.321804.321864.321 and 884.321 prevent a secondary applicant from being granted their visa unless/until the main applicant has been granted their visa first.

To clarify, does that mean if the secondary applicant dies, the main applicant's application can still go forward?  

Do you get to choose which parent is the main applicant when you make the application?

It might pay to take advice about ministerial intervention to cover the worst case.

A friend who was on the same  410 visa as us, applied for the 864 parent visa at about the same time as us2017, her husband sadly died, and she definitely kept her 864 application. I don’t know who the main applicant was, or the circumstances of her keeping or changing the application, but his death was very unexpected. Logically, but not that that applies to immigration!!!) it would be extremely cruel, to refuse the existing partner’s application.

Australian immigration is noted for cruelty.

Advice about what might happen in the circumstances being discussed is best referred to an experienced RMA who has full knowledge of the case.

I reckon it makes sense to have the "younger" parent be the main applicant, especially with the current timelines...
