CPV 173 help pls

Hi

I' new to this forum and looking for an advice from someone one on my parents CPV 173

MY parents have already lodged their CPV and was contacted by Immigration to lodge the AOS bond

-HOw soon will the visa be granted after paying the AOS?

-how soon they need to arrive in Australia after getting the visa?

-can we request AOS payment lodging to be put off for few months due to some personal financial issues? we were advised that it needs to be paid within 2 months of notice? If we request for further time, will that have any negative impact on decision?

-since they are applying under temporary 173 visa, they need to pay the other half of 2nd instalment within 2 years. Is this to be paid within 2 years of arrival or after 2 years of visa granted?

Appreciate somebody's help on this

Thanx heaps

firstly welcome to the forum, its good to see new new members arriving.

-HOw soon will the visa be granted after paying the AOS?
In the 2012–13 Migration Program year, 6575 Contributory Parent visa places are available for applicants applying from in and outside Australia.

Based on current planning levels if you are a new Contributory Parent visa applicant, you can expect to wait 12 to 24 months before visa grant consideration, depending on your circumstances. As current migration planning levels sufficiently cater for demand for these visas, if you are a new Contributory Parent visa applicant, you will not be provided with a queue date.

However, if you are applying for Contributory Parent visa, you should note that processing times can vary. It is important that you ensure you have funds available for the second visa application charge at all times during the application process, as payment may be required at an earlier date than was anticipated at the time of visa application lodgement.

-how soon they need to arrive in Australia after getting the visa?

The 1st instalment of the Visa Application Charge must accompany your application and is generally not refunded if the application is unsuccessful.

Only one 1st instalment of the Visa Application Charge is payable for the entire family unit included in your application. If a separate application is made by them at a later date, a separate 1st instalment of the Visa Application Charge is payable.

Before your visa is granted, you must pay the 2nd instalment of the Visa Application Charge for each person included on the application.

Hi

Thanx for the reply, but my questions are still open and need verification

-what I want to know is the time between AOS lodgement and visa grant,not the timing for the whole process?

-also need to know once visa is granted how soon the applicants have to arrive? Do they get at least 6 months to finalise things in their country (selling properties, etc) before arrival?

-can the assurer request more time to lodge the AOS ?

-in 173 CPA after paying the 2nd instalment ,parents need to pay the 3rd instalment within 2 years to get the PR. does this need to be paid within 2 years of temp visa grant or within 2 years of arrival in AU?

Thanx

HI Abb123 -

No one can say with certainty how long DIAC will take to process any aspect of any visa application - generally speaking, the AOS bond request (Assurance of Support) happens towards the end of processing, so I would estimate you're a few months away from grant, perhaps. No guarantees though - it's just an educated guess!

Generally the validation date of the visa is 1 year from the medical report date, but this can change based on other factors so is not certain. If you need a certain amount of time, it's far better to request that before the validation date is determined than after the visa is granted, as after that the validation date cannot be changed. I typically see validation dates on these types of visas at least 4 months from the grant date, but you can certainly request a longer time.

Re: AOS, that can get tricky because you don't want DIAC to think you lack the means to lodge the AOS. You can request more time, but I would be careful of that one and avoid making that request if you can at all help it. Remember that the sponsor must sign an undertaking promising to provide support, financial assistance and accommodation for the applicant for their first 2 years in Australia.

Re: 3rd instalment (for 143 permanent visa), this is due with the application for the 143 which must be made prior to the expiration of the 173 visa. I believe that the 2 years ends 2 years after initial entry, but you should consult the visa for clarification on this. In any event, the application for the 143 permanent visa must be made prior to the date of expiration for the 173 visa.

You may also want to note that the 173 visa is not a permanent visa - it's a temporary visa, and as such holders of this visa are not considered permanent residents in Australia for purposes of things like social services payments, etc - while Medicare is available to 173 holders, if use of any other social services are being considered, it might be worth checking as to availability for 173 visa holders.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
