Total fee is £1,900.00 paid in 2 stages.
£950.00 Due on Lodgement of Visa
This visa is suitable for applicants old enough to receive the age pension in Australia who want to lodge their application whilst in Australia on a tourist visa. This way the applicant can stay in Australia on a bridging visa whilst a decision is made on their Parent visa. This alleviates having to wait the 4 years that it is currently taking the Australian Government to process the Contributory Parent (subclass 143) visa.
Our visa process took 11 months (as expected for the visa we applied for) and Sue kept us on track and up to date all the time, extremely organised and always happy to help and provide us with her support.
I highly recommend Visa Go Australia, we couldn't imagine trying to go through this process without Sues help and guidance. Samantha Mills
Can't thank Darren and Kimberley enough.

Thank so much for all your help!
Jonas & Cynthia
I would highly recommend anyone applying for a visa to do it through them.
They made sure we had all the information at every step of they way and nothing was ever a problem if I called or emailed.
Thank you so much to all of the team!
