Remaining Relative Visa

Hello. Has anyone here applied for a Remaining Relative Visa (Subclass 115) and is still pending? We lodged our application for my husband's only brother (both parents are deceased) and our application has been acknowledged valid. However, with the queing and capping policy, the processing time seems to be forever. We lodged our application in Nov 2010 and was given a May 2011 queing date. I'm just wondering if anyone's got the same issue and how long do we still have to wait? 3-4 years perhaps? Thanks

Michael, what was your queue date? Has your visa been assessed yet? Current wait times for this visa are at 16 YEARS.

This is what Immigration's website says:

Quote:
Remaining Relative and Aged Dependent Relative visa applicants

Applications for Remaining Relative or Aged Dependent Relative visas with a queue date up to 30 June 2011 have been released from the queue. These applications will be considered for final processing as a place in the Migration Program becomes available.

Once the cap is reached for the visa places that are available in the current year, applications that have been queued and released for final processing, but not yet finalised, will be considered for a place in a subsequent year.

It is currently estimated that lodged Remaining Relative and Aged Dependent Relative visa applications, that have not yet been assessed, are likely to take up to 16 years to be released for final processing (calculated from 1 July 2013).

hey michael

our visa application has been approved in March 2013. Thank God

Lodged on Nov 2010, queu date of May 2011, released for last stage processing on January 2013, we submitted other requirements, approved in MArch 2013. almost 2.5yrs

when did you lodge and what's your queu date? i always monitored the queu dates they're processing and as soon as they put the May 2011 date, i contacted the case officer immediately.

how come you're on your 3rd yr now?

grace

Hello again

My visa application is for Remaining Relative visa (subclass 835)(onshore).

I have no idea why im on my 3rd year.. My Mom, Dad, Sister, Auntie Uncle and there family have all been citizens for over 10yrs.. I also have a chronic disease and suffer from depression and anxiety which has been exacerbated by this long wait..

Hi Grace
I have lodged remaining relative onshore for my sister in Nov 2011 and a case officer has been allocated recently and asking for medicals and all other requirements. How long do they take after checking eligibility and all meeting requirements?
Thanks

Sorry its taking so long but at least there will be light at the end of the tunnel for you. Keep us up to date with your progress...

Interesting how they say "up to 16 years" thats just crazy!

Hello

It was very quick. We were asked for medicals, police clearances in january 2013 then complied immediately. By february, we were asked for Assurance of support and got that sorted in a month or less. By end of march, visa grant came.
