I have just recently moved to Australia just a month. My sister might get an opportunity to come and study here with her husband. However left is my mother( divorced) and staying with my sister.( We just two sisters) .No other support for my mum. I want to know how I can get my mum to Australia with my sister for maximum days stays as initially I understand I cannot apply parent migration as it is a long process and maybe to early as for my eligibility.I read about visa 676 tourist and bridging visa. If I get her on visa 676 will I be able to apply for her bridging visa. Or do I have to apply for just visa 676 with 3 years maximum stay but each stay to be of 1 year ( this I am refereeing in accordance to immigration website) ....but another thing is how state this. Your support would be highly appreciated. Maybe if not these and you would have some other options.

Hi -

A 676 visitor visa is certainly an option, however depending on the country it may only be available for a 3 month stay, with the visa being either 3, 6 or 12 months in duration depending on how long the immigration dept (DIAC) wants to grant it for.

Can you tell me what your immigration status is (ie, PR, here on a visa, citizen, etc) - that might help determine some options for your mom.

Best,

visa query

Hi. I have just recently moved to Australia just a month in December 2012. My sister might get an opportunity to come and study here with her husband. However left is my mother( divorced) and staying with my sister.( We just two sisters) .No other support for my mum. I want to know how I can get my mum to Australia with my sister for maximum days stays as initially I understand I cannot apply parent migration as it is a long process and maybe to early as for my eligibility.I read about visa 676 tourist and bridging visa. If I get her on visa 676 will I be able to apply for her bridging visa. Or do I have to apply for just visa 676 with 3 years maximum stay but each stay to be of 1 year ( this I am refereeing in accordance to immigration website) ....but another thing is how state this.

Hi -

Sorry, am a bit confused. The 676 visitor visa is generally good for anywhere from 3 to 12 months depending on what duration it is granted for. Generally 3 and 6 month 676 visas are typical.

If your parents have applied for a Parent visa, you can get longer stays on the 676 visa per recent changes made late last year. If you want to take advantage of these changes, you would first need to lodge the Parent visa application, then the 676 application referencing the lodged Parent visa application.

You cannot get a bridging visa for a subclass 103 Parent Visa application made onshore - that's why they provide the longer 676 visas for Parent visa applicants. Also note that the Parent visa has a 15 year wait now due to very few of these available each year.

Best,
