    Posted: 25/January/2018 at 22:37
Dear AussieLegals,
My mother (71 years old) hold an Australian Permanent Residency since 2010. Her Passport has a sticker that has a date, name Parenting Subclass 103 Visa. This document has expied and we obtained a new passport( doesnt have a sticker about her Permanent Visa)
Just now, I took her on a three weeks overseas trip, using her New Passport, not realising that the old passport has a small writing - must not arrive after 2013.
Australian Immigration told us that her visa has expied. I had to fill in an application form that lets her in.I have applyed for her Returning Resident Visa on line. I feel sick to my stomac, worring of what is going to happend.
Please, give some advise.

Is she back in Australia? Apply online - it's not a big issue. Her residency is still valid.
Not legal advice. Personal opinion only. Seek legal advice from qualified personnel only.
