The Brand New PIO Parents Visa thread

Recommended Posts

19 hours ago, Jellybean T said:

I would still think you could have your visa by the end of this year. It would be nice to have some clarity on the time scales being quoted. Also how many applications are in front of us.... each month is different, there could be lots of applications during May and June just Incase the fees went up for the new financial year and then a drop off for a few months when they didn’t go up. I know we all are waiting much longer than the time schedule expected and it’s very stressful. We are also getting older and may not pass the medical by the time our applications come to the top of the list so you don’t want to sell up just in case. If they can produce a queue for the 103visa why can’t they provide one for the other parent visas. Make life a lot easier for us. 

We lodged 143 June 2015 hoping to get it by this December just waiting on Centerlink 2nd vac

Hi Forum members,

Thanks for all your information so far - I'm really grateful.

I'm having an absolute nightmare understanding one section of the 47PA form:
Part H – Members of the family unit aged 18 years or over (Each member of the family unit aged 18 years or over listed below,
whether they are migrating or not, must also complete a form 47A Details of child or other dependent family member aged 18 years or over.)

1) So, I have a sister living in my parent's country. She is married and her life is generally independent from ours.
Should the sentence "child or other dependent family member" be interpreted as " [child] and [other-dependent] " or " [child and other]-dependent".

So, basically should we as children need to fill this section up even if we are not dependent on our parents just because we are the members of the same family ?

If not, the only section to mention our relationship is in: Part J – Details of other family members.
2) Here, should my father and mother both have our names listed in their respective sections?

 

Sorry for this complicatedly phrased question.

Hi,  

The definition of the Family Unit is limited to only partners and dependent children of the main applicant.

Hope that helps.

Dear friends

I have received the 2nd vac request ($43600) of 143 visa application and I have sent form 815 via Email and posted the bank check of $43600 on 22nd of Aug. ( I knew that pay by credit card is faster but 1.3% surcharge is just ridiculous, so the surcharge amount will be more than $500)  

How long does it take to get the visa granted

Many thanks

Request for document and medical check on April 2018 

The medical check has an issue with tuberculosis concern, so additional medical check required and takes 3 months 

2nd vac requested  and bank check and form 815 sent on 22 Aug

I hope the form 815 will not delay the visa granting

Hi. We are in Newport 10 mins from Palm beach and 15 mins from colleroy where our fav restaurant there was partially washed out to sea. We are on hill facing Pittwater and Scotland island and fortunately had some shelter. Just opened some more roads today but clearing up will take a while longer. Houses below us flooded out and we had lovely waterfall in garden which fortunately missed house. Another King tide in couple of hours and waves still about 5 to 10 m when we passed colleroy earlier today. Poor Tassie getting it now. Fingers crossed no more lives are lost Kim

Hi I was just reading all the old messages from 2016 and picking up any tips and saw that you are in Newport - I will also be moving there when my visa is granted my daughter and SIL have bought a house along Barrenjoey Road not far from Newport Primary School so would be great to grab a coffee (or a gin for me at the rate my waiting is going) when i finally get there?

OFFSHORE APPLICANTS (subclass 143 and 173) When your application is allocated to an assessing officer, you or your authorised contact may be asked to provide more documents, including (but not limited to) an Assurance of Support (subclass 143 only), police certificates and health clearances to finalise your application.

We are currently assessing applications lodged up to and including 25 May 2015.

So disappointing - told my grandkids earlier this year that I would be there just after Santa visited and looks like now I will have to tell them it will be after the Easter bunny has come!

According to a friend who worked in immigration he was awful. Changed everything, and then changed things again shortly later. As far as I know 18 months in the job and couldn’t hand it over quickly enough.

Staff were relieved when he left. Most felt Dutton has done a good strong fair job. Only saying what has been said to me from people working in immigration.

I paid my AOS bond on 27th May 2018, and it took centrelink more than 2 months to issue an Acceptance letter

After I submit the Acceptance letter to the Department of Home Affairs it only takes them about 2 weeks to send me the 2nd VAC request

Hi MillieB,

Thanks for your help. Does this mean even if I have provided main applicant's partner's (my mom) passport details, etc. in Form 47PA, she still needs to fill 47A as well ??

Yes until December 2014. He scrapped the non contributory parent visas. 103 and 804 in June but was forced to reinstate them in September following a disallowance motion by the Greens - I think! 

Probably why there was such a huge jump in parent applications by end 2014/2015 and going forward  - in case they scrapped them again and parents wanted to get in the queue and perhaps also explains jump in contributory applications as well

Peter Dutton was the only immigration minister who was prepared to meet with our visa 410 group even though others had been approached over the years. He gave up of his time to us, listened to us and promised to consider our position, which he did, and put in a pathway for 410 & 405 visas to get PR. He was a different person when met on a personal level, than he comes across on TV.
