Remaining Relative Visa
Greetings everyone I have a question the form.My sister lives in Melbourne and wants to
sponsor me to come over and live with them.Here it is so don't take this the wrong way but
what freaking Einstein came up with the time it wold take for the 115 visa to get approved
for someone.If I not mistaken it will take 50 years umm come on really.Can someone shed some
light on that for me if they can O.O
Welcome mate! ?
I'm afraid you're correct. From the Australian migration website
Current estimated processing time for Remaining Relative and Aged Dependent Relative visa applications that meet the criteria to be queued is approximately 50 years.
It really does suck and practically discounts this visa as an option. I'd recommend you consider an alternative.
All the best
Greetings and thanks for the welcome if there was a alternative way I would jump on
it in a heart beat but for me it will never happen.I have a job been in the same field for
22 years and does not mean a lot to Aus its a retail job and its never going to be on the
SOL list or the other one.its a job that they can pay and fill with no problem their.and the
age thing to I know they want young ppl and anyone over a certain age they seem to frown
at.It sucks I know but what can you do O.O
Humm you might be right but one problem i might be to old i am 51. I know they want cerain ages. Plus all the visa i have seen all say you have to be under 45. I won't give up just yet my sister is the only family i have
Hi @sfjohn5 Fair enough.
I would highly recommend you seek an assessment from a qualified migration agent to fully understand ALL options available to you.
Please see this article on how to identify an appropriately qualified agent.
Most good agents will provide an initial assessment for free.
I will do that an see how it goes got my fingers crossed that thete still might be hope ?
I sure will keep in touch I found a few migration agent to email and will do that right
away.got a question before i start my emails I just found out from my sister
she is not in the best of health now and is going through some stuff.would they
take that into consideration she is all the family I have.
Hi @sfjohn5, the health of your suster is unlikely to influence your application.
The Australian migration folks take a very black and white approach to migration unfortunately. More personal circumstances are unlikely to be taken into account.
Best of luck! ?
? ? while I wait for a answer from them the time difference sucks
one so far and she said My hourly rate is $600 plus GST Once we are instructed to act, you provide your passport and full residential nor contact details, will request you to pay $3000 on account of our costs into our trust account. I
am looking for the one that will do an initial assessment for free.
?I put in Melbourne and Bundoora where she is and it only
showed 2 that had no fee and I think I already sent them a
email.I will resend it and see what happens
