Prospective Marriage Visa
We are about to apply for our PMV in a month or so and a question has crossed my mind. My fiances parents were in a car/bike incident a few months back that resulted in her fathers death and mum injured. There has been talks about bringing her mum over to Perth Australia, but from what ive read its like a 13 year waiting list?
She has 4 kids in total im marrying one bringing her over to Brisbane on the PMV, another daughter in Perth permanent resident now, a son in NZ but i think hes moving to perth as well and one daughter in cambodia.
My curiosity is that can I bring her mum over on our PMV? will it be a shorter waiting time period? easier or difficult? if she is allowed to come over can she also live at her other daughter/son home in perth? any one dealt with this before?
She runs a small shoe shop in cambodia and has a home that be sold off. I just feel bad that once i bring her last daughter to Australia she will be alone.
Love to hear from anyone whos dealt with something similar to this.
You are marrying the daughter...not the mother - so the PMV will not cut it....

Not sure with onshore partner may be able to include her as a dependant? (difficult).....Is the other daughter in Cambodia still dependant on the mother?

You and your new wife will not be able to sponsor for a few years while the PR visa is processed.

Can the other daughter in Perth sponsor her to Australia...?
If so, there is strong compassionate grounds with her being a recent widow.

I think it will still be a task, with no short cuts, but you will have some options.
Parent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 103)

Good luck.

From the Kingdom of Cambodia to Australia.......
