Visa 600 Sponsored Family for mum-Withdraw or Proceed?

mondejarmondejar MelbourneTotal Reaction Points: 0Member
My mom previously granted her visa for the first time on 09-Dec-2016 and because of that she was able to stay with us here in Australia for 12 months straight from February 4, 2017, till January 27, 2018, under Visa 600 Sponsored Family Stream with the following Visa Conditions:
8101 - NO WORK

She met all those conditions so I thought of applying for a new visa with the ability for her to stay with us again for 12 months and with multiple-entry visa.

I submitted my application and a few weeks later, immigration sends me an e-mail with "Request Checklist and Details" form. And in this form, it mentions a requirement saying:

Other Requirements
****Please note: Under the Sponsored Family Stream, applicants can spend no more than 12 months in an 18 month period onshore. As the applicant has recently spent 12 months in Australia, visa will be considered for a length of stay of 6 months

With this requirement, I have the following question:
1. Does it mean immigration will only give us a maximum of 6 months stay for my mom since she already stayed with us for 12 months in the last 18 months?
2. Will there be a chance our application gonna be rejected simply because I re-applied too soon since my mom just returned back to her country of origin (Philippines) a few weeks ago and that she already stay 12 months stay with us (Feb 2017 to Jan 27, 2018)?
3. Even if our application is granted, does it mean my mom can only enter Australia on July 27, 2018, so that she will not breach the rule that states " applicants cannot spend no more than 12 months in an 18 month period onshore"?
4. Is it advisable for me to cancel this application now or shall I proceed with my mom's health/medical assessment?

I hope this community would help me with these 4 questions. Thanks in advance!

Then pinauwi ko nagre apply ako narefused ulit because of the reason that was given to you. Kainis kasi sabi lang dun sa una not enough reason so nag re apply ako ayun na dahil sa 8558 na. Wala naman conditon dad ko kundi yung no study, no work and must leave before visa expiry. Naiinis ako kasi ang pangit na ng record tuloy.

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
