over 65 & bridging visa

Recommended Posts

Hi all, ok, so when I get over 65, can I apply for a brideging visa while on shore, and then get the 804 age parent Visa? my Son lives in Oz (half my children), So I want to spend the rest of my days in Oz, and can I remain in Oz until the non- payment visa is granted? think I have this correct? any advice would be great, Thanks

In theory yes. But. You need to be very clear about how this works. While on a bridging visa, you would have little or no access to state assistance. You would have limited acces to healthcare. Combine this with the fact this visa has a processing time of about 30 years, it means you would be spending all of your older years with limited access to any of the assistance most people rely on in their older years.

Do be cautious, as VS says yes it's possible, however, it's only recently that an old lady on a bridging visa in a nursing home was going to be deported back to the UK as she didn't pass the medical and therefore the visa wouldn't be granted.
