I am a sixty year old female. Both adult children settled in Australia. It's time for me to join them.(Visited 27 times and know it's where I want to be!!) At the moment not sure if my long term partner will be joining me.
I do not have a house to sell or a fantastic pension to live on so will be poor for the forseable future. But Hey,Lifes an adventure!
As I do not relish the thought of giving the Australian goverment what little money I may have for a parent visa I am looking at all the options and think that the best might be to come out on a one year tourist visa and keep renewing ( think this is possible but not sure how many times they will let me).
In four years time I can then apply for an aged parent visa (much cheaper), get a bridging visa and hopefully get permanancy before I peg it !!
Has anyone else done it this way?
Going round in circles and need to make a decision... HELP
