Most of these family visas have an extremely long processing time. Thus, part of our service is to provide you with strategic advice as to how you can utilise the bridging visa to achieve your migration objectives.
Each visa also has its own set of legal requirements, costs and processing time so it is best that you enquire with professionals to ensure that you choose the most suitable type of visa to apply for. For example, the parent visa category itself has 7 types of visas so you should be sure with which one is most suitable for you and your family before lodging the application.
