Hi all,
I am presently in India and plan to move to Australia on PR (Skilled-Independent visa subclass 189). I plan to move to Australia with my mother and my wife. We have no kids. Searched a lot of threads but didn't find anyone with exact same scenario as me.
My mother's situation:
-71 years old
-I am the only child
-she has always stayed with me
-she has mild hypertension (blood pressure) since 30 years, but regular medication keeps it under control. General health is good otherwise.
-dependent on us financially and emotionally
My queries:
- is it possible for me to include my mother as a dependent in my application?
- else, what other options are available (contributory (aged) parent or visitor? or any other? I don't want her to live alone in India for more than 1-2 months, in a worst case scenario.
- is there any quota for such visas?
-would her age or health (hypertension) be a deterrent for grant of visa?
-although my wife is financially independent and has her own job, do I need to include her a a dependent in my application? What is the visa route for her?
-what are the proof of funds I need to show in India for the visa application (considering this is for the three of us)
Income requirements should be met, as I expect to earn in the range of AUD 130-150K.
Ideally, I would want that my mother can travel together with my wife to Australia within 2-3 months of my landing, if not sooner. Apologies for the long post - but if my mother can't join us in Australia, we don't move to Australia : )
A concerned son

This would be a complex application, I would engage an agent.
