Thanks Peter

my 143 visa applied for my dad, mom ,and sister

my sister is currently in Australia as student visa

i heard people said that on the 2nd payment request letter, immi will ask " all applicants who are in Australia are required to make arrangement to depart Australia with 28 days of this email ",  but if granted within 2 days super fast like this, means my sister wont need to go offshore you think?

Honestly it's really hard to tell how long between 2nd vac and visa being granted. Based on the visa tracker sheet, it could be between 3 days to nearly a month.

Anyway, I believe that all applicants have to be out of AU before this visa can be granted because they have to go through custom (or whatever) to activate their visas.

Please don't quote me on this, but apparently the main visa applicant has to activate their visa first. I can't remember where I learned about this though.

This link has some examples: https://www.australiavisa.com/immigration-news/condition-8558-visitor-visas/

Looks like it's based on calendar month.

@KATE PHUONG LAMYes your sister will still have to go offshore  as her re entry into Australia would trigger the visa.

I hear you....I been looking back at other posts to do with 600 on here and see there is a pattern for those 2015 applicants who have now applied for 600 visa do not have any restrictions except No work or study for more than 3 weeks and they were not asked for any private insurance and those 2016 applicants received all the restrictions - I been reading AMP and Wishful past posts and they are both lodged around my time with no restrictions so maybe that maybe a positive for me, also having applied for 173 I won't have the delay of AOS approval

If you lodged the same time as me then I would suggest you apply for the 600 and see what you get.  Hopefully it will still  be the same as me  with no conditions other than no work and  Only 3 months study. Anyway, what do you have to lose,  the 600visa application costs hardly anything. Also  surely our 143 applications will be processed some time within the next 12 months.  From my perspective I am SO glad that I made the move.  I have been able to’ spend time with my granddaughter before she starts school and that precious 3 and 4 year old time can never be recovered.  I have been amazed by how welcoming and accommodating everyone is.  I absolutely love it here. I still have some qualms, the « what ifs ».  Ultimately I reason though that if, heaven forebid,   something happens so that I can’t stay then at least I have had the intervening time to enjoy 😄. My advice is « go for it »!

How can i get automated response for 103  visa when currently being assessed up to? Thank you.

From my  email yesterday. 

         OFFSHORE APPLICANTS (subclass 103)
When your application is allocated to a case officer, your eligibility for a visa will be assessed and if you are found to meet eligibility requirements your application will be placed in a queue and assigned a queue date to wait for a visa place.  

We are currently assessing applications for a queue date lodged in March 2017.

We are currently assessing applications for visa grant with a queue date in August 2010.

My queue date is nov 2012 and there are 9900 people in front of this queue date. Quota for visa 103 this year is 1500. Does this mean we have to wait further about 6-7 years to get visa granted?

Possibly longer as there were only about 1300 grants of 103 visa last year instead of 1500. It’s rhe same with 143 only 6000 granted out of possible 7175. Australia is really cutting back on parent visas.

More likely to be shorter. I have been in the 103 queue for 2 and a half years and the queue has been going down by over 3000 a year. As well as visa grants people drop out , change their minds as circumstances change or move over to the 143 visa. I would guess you have about a 3 year wait but obviously it is not a precise science. 


103 lodgement date 05-03-2015, 103 queue date 16-06-2016.

Hope you do soon.  Still wondering why we’ve heard nothing yet concerning medical police etc when we’re only 6 weeks behind you yet you started to process in May?  Very disheartening.  Think maybe ours won’t happen until July of next year...when they start the new year of visas??

It moved 8 days from 11/06/2015 to 20/06/2015 in 8 weeks.

Come on Immi, please send an invite to July onward lodgers to prepare AOS.

Put like that it sounds very depressing!!! It would be so nice to know how many applications were lodged each month, eg. if there were 2000 in June 2015 but only 800 in July we would expect a long processing for June applicants and July applicants would be processed quicker. It’s the not knowing how many are in front of you that’s the killer.

Shelagh😞
