    Hello There,

    I want to put this visa for my mom as my father just passed away here in Australia. What is processing time for this visa? When can we get Medicare benefits? Do we get Medicare benefits when we are in queue?

    I am only son. which subclass is better for my mom between Subclass 173 or Subclass 143?

  2. rodger pheely says:

    If you have a 173 it allows 2 years in Oz. Does applying for the 143 visa in that 2 years allow you to stay in Australia beyond 2 years or do you need to leave after 2 years and return once 143 is granted? 143 can take up to 12 years to process so could be a 10 year gap.
