Visitor Visa 600 - parents

Recommended Posts

I applied parents visa (600) on 18th Oct and then travel exemption on 10th Nov. Visa was granted Yesterday (16th Nov) but Still waiting for exemption to granted. Any idea why exemption isn't granted as yet?

Also, anyone had their parents visited from India to Melbourne? Is there any other formality? Like covid-test, quarantine etc? any suggestion would be highly appreciated.

Yes there are and they are constantly changing… you should check both the Department of Home Affairs and the VIC government  websites for up to date, accurate information (and bear in mind that it may change, so keep checking until they get on the plane).

@paulhand thank you.

Have you seen any case where Exemption come after visa is granted? I thought the trigger for visa approval is Exemption application.

It’s all over the place at the moment and we are seeing visas now being granted without the exemption being granted.

Hi Ash_kumar,

Can you please advise if you used one exemption application for both parents. Or did you use separate exemption application
