Might be of interest to some on this thread ...

Best regards.

Thank you Alan. Hopefully there will be a further increase in the upcoming October budget. I note you think the non CP visa allocation (103 & 804) will drop to 500. Obviously it doesn’t really matter for 804 as people know they are not likely to ever get their grant owing to the current long wait but it’s likely that even more aged parents will take this route in future given that it’s so much cheaper and they can wait onshore  so it’s going to mean a lack of revenue for the govt and surely can’t be sustainable. I hope it doesn’t mean increasing the VAC for CPV applications. I know at present the second VAC is locked in at the price at the time of application. Do you foresee any change in this ?

Hi Linda.

Whether the non CPV number is 500 or 750 for 2022-23 is arguably of little material significance.

If the new Federal Government is serious about limiting the significant number of BV holders in Australia (about 360,000 currently - a ridiculous number, IMHO) it will close off the 804 visa pathway - as you say this pathway isn't sustainable and brings the parent visa program into disrepute.

This is purely speculation on my part, but there might be an announcement in this regard around the time of the October 2022 ALP Federal Budget.

As ever, my recommendation is that intending visa applicants submit the visa application ASAP, while the pathway exists.

Best regards.

Hello,

Could anyone here advise me on how I should update the passport and address details for my parents? I applied 864 aged CPV for them on Feb 2021 and they have been on BV since we got back the acknowledged letter. Should I send the email about the new passport and address details to the email address I received for acknowledgment letter? If I do so, will that be updated for their BV details as well? We haven’t heard anything back from them like queue assignment since we got back that acknowledgment email and it has been about 1.5 years now.
