Important changes to Parent Visas
LIVE IN australia.com prides itself on keeping our valued clients up-to-date with any developments, changes or updates to Australian immigration law. If you have been considering, or are in the process of, applying for a Parent Visa, here is an important update.
Several changes will be introduced to Parent Category visas on 1 July 2009. These changes include the ability to change the sponsor of all Parent Category visas at any time prior to a decision being made. Furthermore, the Balance of Family test will become a time of application requirement.
Those granted a permanent Contributory Parent category visa (subclasses 143 and 864), on or after 1 July 2009, will be prevented from sponsoring their fiancé, de facto or spouse for a Partner or Prospective Marriage visa for five years from the day their visa was granted, if they were in a relationship on or before the day their visa was granted.
If you have any further questions about this, we would love to help. Please contact a registered LIVE IN australia.com advisor.
