I know very little about these types of visas but the difference between onshore and offshore applications is simply where you are when you apply. So if your mother is in India (or any country other than Australia) she is applying offshore and will have to be offshore when the visa granted. If she is in Australia she would be applying onshore and must be in Australia when the visa is granted.

Thanks Whiteney. That helps.

Do you have any idea if how much is queue and wait time, processing time for
Aged Dependent Relative Visa (Offshore) (Subclass 114)?

Regards,
Abhilash

Nope. My experience is with partner visas. There will be an estimated processing time on the DIAC website. You can also check out the timeline feature on this site (you can find the link towards the top of this page).

Last I heard the onshore version was taking 15 YEARS (yes, you heard that right... years!). There are only a precious 150 spots TOTAL (onshore and offshore) each year, so the visa is capped and queued. I'm not sure what the offshore wait is like. I did quite a bit of googling and forum searching for you and still couldn't find it...

(There actually isn't an estimated processing time on the DIAC site for this one... it just says "capped and queued.")

OP, I hate to tell you - but i haven't read anywhere that the offshore version is any faster. You may want to contact a migration agent to see for sure since these aren't visas we deal with a whole lot here.
