143 Contributory Parent Visa

Recommended Posts

 The border.co.au website has 34 months for clearing this visa.  Does anyone know if this is the norm?  I thought the norm was 18 to 24 months and my application has been in for 12, i hope i don't have to wait another 24 months.  Does anyone have any advice after going through this process, please?

Unfortunately, the expected timeline for subclass 143 visa applications is presently 36 to 38 months.

I am advised by my contact at the PVC that this is because demand for subclass 143 visas is significantly exceeding the available supply.

Note that applications under subclass 864 are likely to take 12 to 15 months.   The 864 visa is available where an applicant is "aged" (as defined), and is onshore (ie in Australia).

Best regards.

Thank you Allan.  I have already had my application in for 12 months so I'm hoping the 36 months applies to those entered after me, and as I have already applied I cannot change it to a different application can I?

The 36+ month timeline will apply to you, I'm afraid.

Applications lodged in late 2014 are presently being allocated/assessed.

You would need to lodge a new visa application to apply under a different subclass, but if you are eligible a different visa strategy may have a quicker timeline than the one you are looking at presently.

Best regards.
