Disallowance Motion saves Parent and other family visas from 25th September 2014

Breaking news! The successful passage of a Greens’ disallowance motion has overturned the government’s attempts to scrap a range of essential, affordable family and carer visas.

“The Senate has voted to keep families living together and looking after each other in Australia,” the Greens’ immigration spokesperson, Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said. “The success of this disallowance motion means that thousands of Australian families will have a chance to reunite with relatives from around the world.”

The four ‘non-contributory’ visas that had been scrapped were the relatively affordable Age Dependent Relative Visa, Remaining Relative Visa, Carer Visa and the Aged Parent Visa.

“The Abbott government should never have scrapped these essential visas, which only serve to keep families together. The Abbott government was trying to make family reunion the exclusive preserve of the rich, but this disallowance stopped that from happening.” Senator Hanson-Young said.

The Department has advised there will be a 6 months window to again lodge the above applications.

All Parent and Other Family visa categories will be open to applications from that moment.

June 1st of this year saw the cessation of non-contributory parent and other family visas but was done in a very secretive way by the Department, to stem any sort of deluge of applications.
