Hi all, after looking at the many visa options I need HELP! They make it soooo confusing.
Here are the facts. My dad is turning 80 this year. He lives in B.C. Canada, but is British by birth.
He lived over here (Aus) from 1956 - 1976 and had three children in Australia. Now he lives in Canada.
All three children live over here (Aus)
We want to move him over here permanently as he has no family at all in Canada..
should I apply for a visitors visa for him and once he's here apply for something else....
or should I apply for one of the parent visas? while he is still in Canada.
I want to do it the simplest way obviously and if it means its going to be costly so be it. I don't want to pay thousands though and then get knocked back. If he stays out of Canada for more than six months he wouldn't be able to return as he's not a canadian citizen also, would he have to go back to the UK (he hasn't lived there since 1956 lol)
thanks in advance for any help/advice
have a great day
