Default Permanent visa

Hi

I have only started looking into this.
Unsure where to start.

I am 36 years old born in UK, and would like to migrate to Australia with both my parents.

I was wondering what visas would I be eligible for?

My occupation is system analyst with 12 years work experience. I have a BA honours degree.

I am looking for a visa where my parents could come with me at the same time.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

There isn't one unless they are completely dependent on you and, if you are from the UK, then that wouldn't apply.

You may be able to sponsor them in a few years if you meet the conditions but, depending on their age, that would be either extremely expensive or they would have a very long wait.

What evidence would I have to show that my parents are dependents?


Thank you

If they are entitled to a pension or social security or they work then they are not dependent.
Do you have brothers or sisters?

Do your parents live with you? Do they live in the UK?

Then they are not dependent.

If you get a visa then they may be able to get a parent visa in a few years providing they meet certain conditions.

What age are they?......do they have any other children?

At that age a contributory parent visa costs over $40000 each and your sister could sponsor them if they are in good health and meet the character test.

There is talk about a 5 year temporary visa but I am not sure what the position is with that at the moment......but a temporary visa would come to an end and then they would have to leave.

If your parents start with their CPV now, they will be about ready to go about the same time as your visa might come through. At least they can get a visa with the balance of their kids in Australia so good news!

Just to add, I don't believe it is possible to include dependant parents in skilled visa applications since changes made last year - http://britishexpats.com/forum/immig...vember-887439/

Parent visas do take a while to process. Contributory visas are quickest but still take a couple of years I think. Searching the forum should give other posts on the subject with more info.
