Disallowance Motion: Update

As readers of our blog will know, a Disallowance Motion is scheduled to be discussed and voted upon during tomorrow’s Senate sitting, Weds 24th of September, 2014.

If the Motion is successful the Instrument preventing the lodgement of applications under subclasses 103 and 804 will be void, which will allow applications for these visa subclasses to be submitted again.

News reaches us via the Migration Institute of Australia that if the Motion is successful the Department of Immigration has advised there will be a six month window to again lodge these applications.

This is because a new Regulation that has the same effect as a disallowed Regulation cannot be made within the six months following the Disallowance.

The Department has advised the MIA that if the Disallowance Motion is successful all the Parent and Other Family visa categories will be open to applications from that moment.

GM Parents – a division of Go Matilda Visas – is ready to assist with the preparation and lodgement of applications for subclass 103 and subclass 804 visas if the Motion is successful, and we already have applications ready to lodge.

If you are interested in lodging an application for a Parent or Aged Parent visa and want to be at the front of the inevitable surge in new applications if the Motion is successful please complete the enquiry form on this page and request a no obligation fixed fee proposal in the text box.

We will bring news of the Disallowance Motion at the GM Parents blog as soon as we have it to hand.
