Migration Amendment (Parent Visas) Regulations 2021


This instrument makes amendments to the Migration Regulations 1994 (the Migration Regulations) to assist applicants for certain parent visas who may be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Migration Act 1958 (the Migration Act) is an Act relating to the entry into, and presence in, Australia of aliens, and the departure or deportation from Australia of aliens and certain other persons.

Subsection 504(1) of the Migration Act provides that the Governor-General may make regulations, not inconsistent with the Migration Act, prescribing matters required or permitted to be prescribed, or necessary or convenient to be prescribed, for carrying out or giving effect to the Migration Act.

    My husband and I have been waiting in the last six years for our Australian PR application to be decided upon by the Minister at this stage. However meanwhile we have been mistreated quite unfairly (by both our migration lawyers and Case Immigration Officer) to the extent for the last seven (7) months (still ongoing) we have been "denied" a number of our basic human rights all stemming from not being granted our work rights. We had re-submitted a couple of times our application on Form 1005 based on severe financial hardship but still there is an adamant and condescending stance especially from our immigration Case Officer. Unfortunately by this stage too our lawyers have voiced they cannot do anything further, it seems that they just cannot waste time any further with this particular immigration case officer handling our application. In the ongoing seven months Sydney living ordeal experience of ours we are thinking of lodging our own future request for workrights (also our employer are waiting too) but we are slapped with the reality taken our case officer's stance our application can be refused again. So we have decided to lodge an official complain, and can you please advise us as to whom can we see and forward our complain. Thank you kindly.

    All the best.
