I have an Austarlian PR visa and am planning to move to Australia in September 2014.
My mother is a widow and is dependent on me. I am searching for ways in which I can get her to stay with me without any interruption of having to return to india every year.
Only way possible is PR but here is the problem.
I was first thinking of filing her Visitor Visa(subclass 600) and getting her to OZ and then filing for her PR (subclass 884 or 864) . Then filing Bridging till the result of PR is out so she could stay with me without having to return to India.
Biggest Problem here is that the Visitor Visa(sublass 600) has 'No Further Stay' condition imposed on it, and this condition prohibits anyone to file any further Visa on top of it.
Thus filing PR after getting her on Visitor is not an option.
Thus the second thing I am thinking is filing her PR first and then getting her on Visitor Visa. PR would take 12 to 24 months and on visitor visa she can stay with me for 12 months so that at least reduces the PR visa waiting by 0 to 12 months.
But I am not sure if this option is allowed.
Can anyone tell me if I can apply for her PR and then get her to OZ on Visitor Visa?
Please also let me know if you know of any other solution so I can have my mother stay with me without having to return to India.
Any help much appreciated.

She would have to be outside the country for PR processing

Ok thanks for your reply.
Can i instead do this?
Apply for the visitor visa now, as she is anyways not eligible for PR till january. Once she has visitor Visa , I then apply for PR and then get her to travel on Visitor, which was already granted, till the time her PR is in prgoress?
June is popular time to move to Australia. Many expats temporarily settle in furnished rentals giving them time to look for the right place to rent or buy.
Finding a good real estate agent or agency can be key! Do you have an individual or agency to recommend? Please take a minute to post the name and website for your favorite agent or agency.
If expats in your area find housing themselves -- without the help of agents, what suggestions would you have for someone starting their search? How do they find the best places?

Can anyone give me the latest reviews about this school. Perth is on our relocation list but I am not sure about the schools in perth. We are now at an international British School and if we move to Perth my eldest has to do her IB there.

I also have children at ISWA and have very mixed feelings about the school in general. We moved here from the states and have tried an Australian school and ISWA. Education in Perth is very different than education in the US. The only advantage to ISWA is they operate on the northern hemisphere calendar. Parent involvement does not exist and the administration wants to keep it that way. It is really ashamed considering the amount of professional spouses that aren't working. There are not any sports through school and when the school is approached to a parent volunteering to coach a team the administration flat out tells you they are not interested. I am not sure avoidance is the right choice. It is probably better than anything else but it falls short of satisfactory.
replied to the thread teaching in Australia
on the Australia forum:
I´d like to get some information about the possibilities of teaching French and Spanish in Australia, specially in Sidney or Brisbane. My question has to do with the offer and the demand of these languages in the country. I have a degree in Languages and I´m going to move to Australia to improve my English. I thank you in advance for your help.
It's good to know that you're interested to learn English in Australia. With regards to your plan to teach in Sydney , I don't see any problem at all. Just do the necessary requirements and if the luck is in your side then go for it. For further information you can always go to our website. I'm sure Google will be very happy to help you as well.

Thank you for your kind response and information.
I really appreciate it.
I have read some information on web about the best area to live and the cost of rent as well the others bill such utility, water, insurance, etc, but they are very different variety from one source compared to others. Please advise and appreciate for any suggestion.
Have a nice weekend.
Darwin is a clean, peaceful city. The weather is good . The cost of living is quite high but if you have a good job everything will be fine. Darwin is a multi-cultural city so you can just imagine the blending of each culture into one. Pretty interesting though.
