Visa places for 16/17 announced

Recommended Posts

Not much change but 1550 places have been allocated for Parent (Migrant) and Aged parent (Residence) this year and 520 for other Family (migrant and Residence) stream.

So expect a very long wait as NZ Citizens, who are not eligible for other pathways are also included in both of these figures!

My Dad has a mere 3600 in front of him in the queue!

Hello,

Is the 1550 places an allocation for just WA? How do you find out how many places are in the queue, that is a seriously low figure!!!

Jannette that is the annual quota for the whole of the country! Expect very long wait times!

My goodness, so the 24 months we were expecting is highly unlikely.......

 

Hi Jannette. A late comment from me!

 

The numbers quoted in the original post are for the non Contributory visas under subclasses 103 and 804.

 

You have mentioned an expected timeline of 24 months, which makes me think you have applied for a Contributory Parent visa, perhaps under subclass 143?

 

Best regards.
