Parent visa for Mum

Hi,
I am looking to apply for PR for my mum who currently lives in India. She is 64 yrs old and is fully dependant on me and my sister (who is an Australian Citizen) financially and emotionally as my Dad has passed away. Hence we want to get her over here. We have no other siblings in India. Just wanted to know what is the best visa category that we could apply for her without a long waiting period and paying a lot of money as with the contributory visa. Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

It seems you have done some reading up on the various subclasses of visa already. Have you also used the visa finder on the DIAC website?

From your description, it seems your sister is going to sponsor your mum, so if you don't want to pay for the contributory visa, the only other option is one of the aged parent visas. You say you don't want a long waiting period, but I've read that there is a long queue for these visas, since they only grant around 2000 a year. So, it could take about 10 years or more.

Are you also a citizen? If you are not and you only have PR via a work visa I recommend trying to add her as a dependent on your visa. This is just my opinion, but it may be an easier and faster option.

I suggest you also call DIAC and ask someone who works for the department, or possibly talk to a Migration Agent about your options.

Thanks aussiegirl.
I will be applying for her PR. I have a PR myself already (not through work, but skilled PR). And have been in AU for 5 yrs, so I am eligible for citizenship too. I checked the website, but it directs me to the Aged parent or contributory visa categories. Which take too long or cost too much. I was wondering whether there is any way that we could avoid the wait in the queue, basically whether we could claim compassionate grounds to get her on PR ASAP.

It might be worth you checking with Immi whether your mum would be eligible for an Aged Dependent Relative visa
Aged Dependent Relative Visa (Offshore) (Subclass 114) as against a parent visa for the 114 seems to have more emphasis on dependancy/being single and no mention of the wait list as they do mention with parent visas, so you could check on whether the wait list would also apply if she is able to apply for the 114 .

The other approach that I have heard of people being able to manage [ though more difficult for someone from India ] is for them to get a visitor visa that does not have a No Further Stay condition and then once in Australia they could apply for an onshore parent visa and they will get a bridging visa until their parent visa gets considered.
As I say, there are difficulties for Indian passport holders as the ETA is not available, butcould she be an older student?
