Elderly mother, autistic daughter given extension on visa

An 80-year-old woman and her autistic daughter, 50, now have until November 28 to continue their visa fight, after their calls for permanent residency on compassionate grounds were denied by the Department.

The mother, Florence, and daughter, Sheryil, had applied for a PR but the application was cancelled due to Sheryil’s disability. Earlier, they had to leave the country on October 3, which was changed at the last minute and the two women were granted an extension on their visa.

An online petition calling for both ladies to be granted permanent residency on compassionate grounds now has over 65,000 signatories.
