Last time getting an Australian visa for my mum was as simple: she just had to fill out an online application form and wait for a couple of days. This time, maybe because now she’s a pensioner, we had to provide tons of declarations and bank statements. I was worried that we’ll be asked for a bond. Then I’d have to get a personal loan and any kind of debt is not a contract that I enter lightly.
But it all went well and she got the visa before we even managed to collect all the documents we were asked for. So hopefully Grandma will be here for baby’s birth!
