The Brand New PIO Parents Visa thread

I’m no expert but I have been through the process and we have our visas now. I don’t think it would make any difference if there is one or two sponsors. We are parents of two daughters with Australian Citizenship and we only used one of them as our sponsor. Remember, the sponsor does not have to be the same person as the assurer. When it comes to applying for AoS you may find (if your finances dictate) that you need two assurers.
On your second point, the AoS application and bond requirement comes very much towards the end of the process. As someone else has said, the waiting period for you if you are applying now is likely to be 6 to 8 years. You don’t need to concern yourself with AoS at the moment.
On your third point, Form 1022 is used to notify Immi about changes in circumstances like the ones you describe. We used it and it worked for us.
My advice to you is to get your application in as soon as you can so that you secure your place in the queue.
Good luck!
David

 

Hi, we have relocated in Aus last year and I have taken a new passport of my country during Sept 2019. Also, my sponsors became Aus Citizen during Apr-19. Do we require to fill form 1022 and report all these information ?   Also, can you please share parent visa email id to send this form. Thanks,

Hi Greece,

I used Form 1022 to advise Immi of our sponsor becoming an Australian Citizen. For a change of passport details I would use Form 929. The e-mail address I was using at the time I submitted these forms (18 months ago) was: parents@homeaffairs.gov.au

I submitted these forms separately and each time I received the automatic reply almost immediately then, a week or so later, I received an acknowledgement from Immi confirming my details had been updated.

Good luck!

David

Happy New year all,

My query is regarding Form 80 but not for 143 at the moment instead for the long stay temporary visa subclass 870 and was hoping if someone can assist with few questions of form 80 which we will have to fill for 143 as well. 

Question 17 - Address history for last 10 years, do we need to mention about Hotel accommodations for outside Australia as well for Holiday/Leisure trips? 

Question 21 - if the answer to this is No, do we still need to fill in questions 25-29

Question 24 - Are you applying for a temporary visa, I am unsure about this one as 870 is a temporary visa and the departure date section is unclear. What date do we need to put in here? Should I forecast a date in future eg 5 years later or something if I am applying for 5 year 870 visa. 

Any help is appreciated 🙂

The bank guarantee costs $150.

Also, if you don't already have an account with the Commonwealth Bank, it might cost to set one up. I'm not sure how much. We already had a bank account there so no extra charges for us.

Does one receive a confirmation email once the supporting docs are sent? apart from AOS (which was due to be finalised on 19Dec), I have submitted everything and also requested an extension due to delay in AOS  but I haven't received any confirmation yet. My concern is that the original email stated that I needed to submit everything by 11th Jan...

I think it will depend on how you make payment. We paid by BPay which is fast and carries no surcharge. Our visa was granted in less than 24 hours.

how do you submitted AOS ? Is there any way to track the progress

Sorry can’t help but you can help the rest of us. Any chance of giving us the date you submitted original paperwork and Aos application. It helps us all to see how we are moving along.

I've seen other members on the forum say that they got a text message in advance from AOS advising they will get a call and to make sure you answer. Not sure how far in advance you get the text though. 


CPV 143 Lodged 7th July 2016,  Acknowledged 20th July 2016.

At the time of applying, website said 12-18 months processing time.  2 years later found out there were already 28,000+ applications in the queue at the date when we applied.

864 Parental Visas & Medicare / Temporary Parental Visas & Medicare (UK Applicant)

Hey people... Does anyone know what the situation is with medicare / health care provision for a UK applicant applying for a SC864 while living in Aus and waiting for the application to be processed? This takes a few years now I believe. Would they be covered by medicare or required to take out private health cover? What about the reciprocal health care agreement?

And what about the temporary parental visa applications? How do they compare with regards to medicare?

Thanks in advance...

There is a reciprocal agreement between the UK and Australia on healthcare.  It applies to UK residents (not UK citizens).  So, as long as  you were legally resident in the UK immediately before you arrive in Australia, you are entitled to care under the reciprocal agreement.  Note, that means if you were resident in France or Spain before moving, you're not eligible.

If you are eligible, then applying for any visa doesn't change that fact, you remain eligible.

The reciprocal agreement states that you are entitled to essential care.  If treatment could wait until you get back to your home country, it's not covered.  In practice, doctors and hospitals don't seem to be aware of that and I've heard of people getting full access.
