It's DIBP who posts the lengthy wait times, perhaps to provide a 'worst case' scenario in some situations, however they often have what appear to be contradictory time frames in different pages on their site.

And you're welcome to your opinion on migration agents but most people would disagree with you. For the most part, agents who post on this forum as well as PIO are extremely helpful and accurate with their facts. They obviously have to be cautious about giving advice, which I know some see as them holding back to promote their services. But advice can mistakenly be taken as gospel by people it's not intended for, so it's the correct approach for migration agents to simply give general comments unless it's a very specific question that's very black and white.

I'm entitled to my opinion? i'd have thought that goes without saying actually. & your comments in defence of Agents are no doubt of a general nature here- mine were specifically related to waiting times for Parent visas . i'm sure , as you feel the need to point out , that some people would disagree with me just as many would disagree with you- but it's that attitude that stops people expressing an opinion & withdrawing from these boards in the end & you're just left with the same few running the show . They love it.

Electronic signature

Hi Mark,

Is electronic signatures of parents on forms for 143 visa good enough for a valid application?
As my parents are overseas they would need to sign on forms then post them here to me, then to DIBP.
If I use my parents' electronic signatures when filling forms then print them out and sent to DIBP, will they consider their signatures valid?

Has anyone done this way before?

Hi Luckyduck12 -

As far as I know DIBP does not have a specific rule about electronic signatures. However, DIBP routinely accept scans of signed forms, so I would suggest that alternative (ie, email forms to parents, have them print out and sign the signature page, then email the scan of the signature page to you and you print it out to lodge if you are lodging a paper form).

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
