Aged Parent Visa subclass 804 (Parent - Residence

Recommended Posts

My wife and I have been out here since May 2011. Our queue date is 15 April 2014. I have used the calculator but can't work out how long we still have to wait. It has been suggested that we have about 6 years to wait. Is this right?

How many are ahead of you in the queue?

 

Dividing that number by the number of 804 visas granted annually gives a good indication of how long your wait will be.

 

Best regards.

I see there are that there are 2620 in front of us, Alan and that the 2014/2015 Migration Scheme has allowed 1500 for the Parent Visas 804 and 103. How is that divided up between the two visas?

While we are waiting for our Aged Parent Visa to be approved we have managed to change our Bridging Visa A to Bridging Visa B, which lasts until August 2020. We can now travel to and from Australia so I think we have one more trip to our family and friends in the UK, probably next year when I shall be 80 an my wife 70. She has booked a pilgrimage tour to the Holy Land in September 2015. Isn't life great!

No Indiana, not yet.  We have been out here for six years on 21 May 2017 (two days ago).  There are just over 2000 on the waiting list and they only get through 300 applications per year, so we have about 6.5 years to wait.  But at least we can stay until we are approved and we can travel outside Australia, money permitting, if we want too.  We went to the United Kingdom last May/June to visit family and friends.  That was great but I would not like to move back permanently.  We only have our UK State Pensions to live on which remains at the same rate as the day we left.  I wonder what happens to those pensioners living in EU countries like Spain when UK leaves.  One of our daughters has bought a Unit as an investment and allows us to live there rent free until we don't need it any more.  She also pays our electric bills and water rates so we are very lucky.  We help her in other ways so it evens out.
