Sorry if this has been covered.
I am looking into visa for my mum, to join us in about 18 months time, I know she can go for the contirbutory visa and there is approx 15 to 18 month wait.
But have been looking into the other visa, non contributory - I have spoken to agent who we used and was told the following:
If my mum applies on shore in Adeladie then she would be granted the Bridging Visa, there is currently a 7 year waiting list and she would not be allowed to leave Australia during that time as you can not enter Australia on a Bridging Visa.
I am waiting for full details to come through from agent, but just wandering if anyone has any knowledge on this - seems very unfair to say that you can not leave the country.
22 days left before we leave the UK and return to Aus on our PR Visa's - can't wait
