Parent visa query

Recommended Posts

Just a quick question, I'm an only child, been in Australia now over two years as a permanent resident. Wife has Cancer and is under going various treatments that are going to be ongoing. I only have my mum left and she is 76 but is a fit 76. She has high blood pressure which she takes tablets for. Now she has said that she would like to sell up and come and live with us to help with the children, which to be honest we could well do with. 

However, I can only see the contributory and Non-contributory visas. The contributory visa is $43800 plus $10000 medicare bond and the non contributory has a near 20 year waiting period. 

Both of these are nothing short of criminal and the government quite clearly does not want people bringing their parents. I mean, who lodges an application that will take 20 years? The chances are your parents will be dead and the gov have still had their visa fee!! 

Is there another option?

It may be worth chatting to an agent regarding strategies (Camilla at New Life Down Under is a regular contributor to the forum).  I know there have been some changes to the income of the assurers of support.
