Before the weblink was removed (because they were advertising) they were actually charging 40 quid to "share" their application.

This forum has years and years worth of exanples of what evidence people have supplied and how they organized it. I've seen countless posts where people have actually listed exactly what they uploaded. Just get lost in the forum, especially the waiting rooms. And look at both the 820/801 and 309/100 applicants for evidence examples as the visas are the same albeit the former onshore and the latter offshore.

Ha! Thanks! I see. Don't need to spend that fees for sure. Have spent enough on our application.

Congrats on the quick grant.

Are you from a 'high risk' country?

Did they ask for medicals or police checks from the AFP? I'm not sure if these are required, but they can take time so how it is granted in 3 months I'm not sure how some are granted so quickly... I guess it must be extremely 'low risk'.

Cost is a factor, sure. I heard of one person paying 20k for a subsequent family visa?? Can take 10 years to approve but it's instant.. ??

https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/143-

Contributory parent visa (subclass 143)
Features

This visa lets parents of a settled Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen live in Australia permanently.

You could apply for the Contributory Parent (Temporary) visa (subclass 173) before this visa. Applying for the temporary visa and then this permanent visa costs more but the costs are spread across the two visas over a longer period of time.

You could also apply for a Parent visa (subclass 103). The subclass 103 visa costs less than this visa but there can be long waiting times of up to 30 years.
Eligibility

You must have a child who is an Australian citizen, a permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen.

At least half of your children must live in Australia or more of your children live in Australia than any other country.
Length of stay

​Permanently
Cost
From AUD 19,750

The contributory parent visa costs in fact over 34000 dollars and takes about 3 years to process. It is not a "subsequent family visa", it is not processed instantly or in 10 years and I'm not sure what it has to do with this thread.

We considered hiring a visa advisor to support us with the application as that is what so many people had advised, but they are SO expensive and it's costly enough for the application alone. So we did lots and lots of research and did it alone.

We wanted to help people save money and time so I have put a site and guide together. If you are looking for help check it out!

If you have any questions on the threat we are happy to help
Hey ras1234 Thanks for sharing!

Hoping you can give some more insight in your scenario.

1. At the time you applied, were you in a relationship for 3+ years, or have kids, or were married?
2. Did you apply for the 309 visa?

I'm trying to workout if the short timeline you experienced was because you were in a 3+ years relationship/had kids/married

I'm an Aussie and my boyfriend a U.S. Citizen. We are both current living in the U.S. and have applied for the 309 under the defacto partner (we had been living together for 1.5 year at the time we applied).
We submitted our application Apr 2018
Police check submitted May 2018
Health check submitted June 2018

Thanks!
