The Brand New PIO Parents Visa thread

Recommended Posts

@VLong No I have had no movement since submitting my docs - I did write to PVC team 1 last week enquiring and they have basically indicated that they are working according to the auto reply timings so August 2015 but we do know they have requested for September 2015 lodgers.

It doesn't make a difference what stage you are with 143 or 173 with the submission of documents so I will have to just wait until they reach October 2015 and that is when they will be processing my application.

You can follow via my timeline - it would help others too if you put yours up.

It is very helpful to see timelines and very easy to add to your profile as follows:

Click on your profile icon on the top right hand side of this screen - there is a drop down box

Click on Account Settings.

On the left hand side of the screen you will see "Signature" click on that and complete your details

Click on Save.

Can I suggest that someone starts a separate thread for parent visa timeline requests?

Otherwise I shall have to disengage myself from this one!

Best regards.

A reminder that signatures should only be two lines long (as per the forum rules) - only MARA agents can have three.

Have to agree Alan it gets a little tiresome checking in hoping there’s some news only to find yet another request for a date way in the future.

Ditto - going to stop answering those requests. Even if you have answered it at the top of this screen and again in the previous screen the same question is asked

What's worse is that some members are eager to find out other people's progress/time lines but are so reluctant to share their own application progress. I Wish everyone updates their signature line and make it a 'Give and take" type Forum. This is such an important forum and the only way to find out what is really going on at Immi.

Excellent news!  We had our request when we were out for Christmas in 2017.  Hopefully not long now until you can be out there permanently!  We are still having problems selling our house, but at least we have the visa sorted!

That got my heart beating. I misread your message and thought they were asking a fellow March 2016'er for further documents.

Anyway, welcome to the waiting room.

Getting things together to go in my Movecube.  I have four things to declare as having been owned less than 12 months, two were bought and have been in obvious use since January & February and two will be completely new and unused, but added together the four will be over the $900 allowance - probably a total of around $1200. Does anybody know if Customs has any discretion where obviously used things are concerned?

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 and I'll be heading Down Under on 21st via Royal Brunei.  Arrive in Mebourne 3.30 a.m. their time on Monday.  😎

Hi Sadge,

We declared a total of $1025 of goods that were less than 12 months old.  Some were going away gifts and were clearly unused.  We noted them as gifts on the customs declaration form.  I don't think our MoveCube was opened and inspected by customs and we didn't incur any import tax.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

David
