A worried client , who has a relative waiting for a remaining relative visa to be
granted, contacted the writer last week when she read the information below on the
Department’s website:
Based on current Planning Levels and the allocation of the majority of the Other
Family places to the Carer visa category, it is currently estimated that Remaining
Relative and Aged Dependent Relative visa applications that were lodged in 2014
and meet the criteria to be queued are likely to take approximately 56 years to be
released for final processing (calculated from 14 August 2014).


She expressed the view that she, her relative and the writer would all be dead before
the Department was ready to issue a visa.

Hopefully it is a typographical error.
