This topic was mentioned recently "AGED PARENT VISA"!
Having spoke to my agent to see what info they could give me about this visa (as my parents are DESPERATE to follow us out asap)i was so disappointed and quite shocked to be told if they were to apply now and go on the "list" they would have a waiting time of between 10 and 12 YEARS!!!!!!
My god they are 70 already!
Apparently they only issue very few numbers of this particular visa each year hence the huge waithing time!
This is info from my agent so i presume he knows the facts!!!
Hope this helps others thinking the same route maybe for their parents.......be prepared to be disppointed like me!
