If she wants to come for upto one year - visitor's visa. Depending on which country she has her passport of she should be able to get eta or e-visitor or paper visitor or sponsored visitor. Sponsored visitor is for three months only with condition 8503 (she can't apply to stay longer). Paper visitor is usually for 6 months at her age and when she extends for further 6 months they usually give the condition 8503. The electronic visas usually do not have the condition. If she wants to stay longer than 12 months you may consider applying for PR when she comes here on a visa without the 8503 condition. Best and quickest is aged dependent relative - you have to provide evidence that she has been financially dependent on you for at least three years. She could get her PR surprisingly quickly - within six months or so. You also may consider adding her to your own PR application as your dependant (if you are financially supporting her) and that way she can come with you on PR straight away and stay as long as she wants.
Good luck

Thanks for the reply. We have Indian passport. I have not included her in the initial stage as it might have caused deny of PR for all as she has little problem in walking and she walks slowly due to joint pain problem. Now she may want to stay with us in Australia for a longer period like 1 to 2 year. I have two more brother in India. Please suggest which Visa should i apply for her.

I think Ranjay, the first thing will be for you to get your visa approved and get yourself to Australia as depending on your occupation and priority category it could be something of a wait.

Have a read of http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener...processing.pdf and there has been a review in recent months with a further announcement which may be out in next week or early in the New Year.

There are 12 month tourist visas and some are issued with a last entry date about 12 months from date of issue and then you have 12 months from then and so with just one short flight to NZ and back people can effectively get two years.
It may be something you want to look at though India may also be classed as a high risk country in respect to some visas because of overstayers and there could be problems with your mother being issued with one.

There are parent visas but unfortunately with brothers living in India your mother may not pass the balance of family test.
Best for you to have a look under the parent visas @ Family - Visas & Immigration

There is a standard one which has quite a long waiting period and also a contributory one which costs a lot more and with a shorter wait.

If you mother was ineligible and in Australia on a visa without an 8503 no further stay condition, she could of course apply for a standard visa and perhaps because of the long wait time, it may not get looked at for many years to be rejected.
Meanwhile, she may be issued with a bridging visa.

But doing that, you have to realise that if she outlives the bridging visa time she could have a parent visa rejected and have to return to India.

Thanks for the valued advice. I am Electronics engineer and in CSL list and expecting visa any time. What i understood from your email that i should apply for normal tourist visa for my mother, which i may get for 1 year. Does she need to give medical for tourist visa? What other things she need for tourist visa? Any other good option for her?

It is very likely that your mother will have to do a medical examination, details @ Tourist Visa (Subclass 676)
