  1. Bundy there is no tax implication, assuming you are not tax resident in SA. If you were, it could be a donation but the donation and not the remittance, triggers donations tax May I suggest you ensure the correct BoP (balance of payment) code is used. if you send the funds to your own bank account in SA, using BoP Code 511/7, you can later remit the same amount back to SA. This assumes they will repay and its not a loan If they have no ability to repay and do not have a SA bank account send to their account and use code 401 being gifts If you wish send me an email to capetown@currencyassist.com and we can assist with the process. I will ask our Divan to take good care of you

  2. We applied in July 2018 and are also feeling very disappointed about the lack of information and the lengthy waiting time. We also thought it would take 3-4 years - which was a long time, but manageable. However, the goal posts have been moved so many times even before Covid, that I think 5-7 years could be optimistic. Unless there is a change of policy in our favour we're in for a very long wait. Unfortunately, as we get older passing medicals could become an issue 😞

  3. Has anyone been following the enquiry into visas, including parent visas? https://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Senate/Legal_and_Constitutional_Affairs/FamilyandPartnerVisas You can watch the recent hearing here: https://parlview.aph.gov.au/mediaPlayer.php?videoID=546410&operation_mode=parlview I must say, I am feeling a little despondent. We applied in 2018, and at the time we expected about 3 to 4 years wait. At this rate, we have another 5 to 7 years to wait... thanks to the department decreasing processing visas for all parents to half what it was before the pandemic... and yet ramping up partner visas. Very disappointing.
