      143 contributory parent visa

      Hi all

      lokking to see if anyone has been through this process. My parents are lodging this visa in the next few weeks. It seems that all the work is front ended and its a matter of just waiting. They say it will take about 2 years to complete.

      if anyone has done this or is going through the process would you mind sharing your experiences with me.

      thanks in advance

      kathy

      Hi Kathy,
      We have been through the process and purchased what we thought was a permanent residents Visa, but decided to go through the 2 stage process. This entails buying a 2 year temporary Visa which leads on to a Permanent Visa when the balance of the fee is paid.
      After living in Adelaide for 3 years we decided to move back to England. The last time we came out to Australia in January 2015 we were informed at the airport that we did not have a valid Visa for entry to Australia, so had to let Emirates arrange a visitors Visa for us whilst we were waiting to get on the plane.
      After we arrived we visited the Immigration office in Adelaide only to be told our Visa had been cancelled because we had not lived in Australia for 3 of the last 5 years, this apparently was because they do not recognize living with a temporary Visa as Residence.
      I would suggest that your parents apply for an extended holiday Visa which I believe can be had for 12 months, which would give them the chance to test out if they want to live there permanently or come back to England.
      Our (Permanent Residents Visa?) turned out to be a very expensive 3 year exercise, as it cost us over 30,000 which it appears we have now lost!!.

      Thanks for your reply. My parents are still in the UK and are going straight for the permanent visa as they are sure they want to stay . As you say it is expensive but hopefully worth it. I am sorry it wasn't for you in the end but at least you gave it a go
      wish you the best x

      Would love to know how your parents go through this process, as My husband and I are hoping to apply next year.

      I am currently going through this. I have sent in the first set of forms and now am just waiting! I'm told it will be 18 to 24 months. I've asked for any comments from others who may have already gone through this. My biggest worry is how to pay the 30000 aud before I sell the house!!

      I know that is a worry, we have thought maybe we would need to sell our house and maybe rent for a few months, this would release the money we would need.

      Thanks for reply. I would need to be sure of acceptance before I would sell my house - if I have to stay here I want this house! If they ask for Medical checks and police checks is that the time to put the house on the market? Or would it still be a risk? I know the checks would be clear - no great medial problems and security checks are clear -I've been a good girl!

      I would have thought that the medical and security checks would be the final stage and if they are clear you would be granted your visa, yes maybe that would be a good time to out house on market, - hope it comes through quickly for you.

      I have my parents on vistors visa renewing every 12 months, wish there was a longer option. I'm looking at the contributory parent visa for next year but the costs are quite high!

      We thought we would see if we could apply for a holiday visa and then apply for the 143 vis while we were there, has anyone done it this way
