Age Dependent Relative Visa, Remaining Relative Visa, Carer Visa and the Aged Parent

The following is the official press release from the Office of the Senator Sarah Hanson-Young:

The successful passage of a Greens’ disallowance motion has overturned the government’s attempts to scrap a range of essential, affordable family and carer visas.

“The Senate has voted to keep families living together and looking after each other in Australia,” the Greens’ immigration spokesperson, Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said.

“The success of this disallowance motion means that thousands of Australian families will have a chance to reunite with relatives from around the world.”

The four ‘non-contributory’ visas that had been scrapped were the relatively affordable Age Dependent Relative Visa, Remaining Relative Visa, Carer Visa and the Aged Parent Visa.

“The Abbott government should never have scrapped these essential visas, which only serve to keep families together,” Senator Hanson-Young said.

“The Abbott government was trying to make family reunion the exclusive preserve of the rich, but this disallowance stopped that from happening.”

To watch the moment in time where the Senator moves her motion, the objection by Senator Cash and the 'I's have it' please click here:

Sorry, I didn't notice that Mark had already posted this...It won't benefit too many people though with the extremely long processing times and limited quotas..

Both the Migration Aliance and Migration Institute of Australia have warned that the window will only be open for a short time as DIBP is likely to close the windows through a Regulation instead of changed to the Migration Act. Changing regulations and policy don't necessarily require the approval of parliament.

I was surprised that they opted for legislation instead of regulation in the first place, and your right a 25 year wait makes it moot point for most, of course some may be able to avail themselves of an extended visitors visa while they are waiting ( assuming they don't change the rules )
