I, Dumar Pretorius, am seeking signatures to help my parents Ewalda Pretorius and Alexander Pretorius to receive Ministerial Intervention from the Minister of Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant and Multicultural Affairs to use his powers under the Migration Act 1958 to substitute the decision with a more favorable one; to intervene and grant them the current or substitute visa they need to stay in Australia. I am my parents only child/ son, married to Liezl Pretorius, have a 3-year-old son Luke and we expecting our second child in April 2021. My parents have lived in Australia now for the last 4 years and both have and are willing to work and contribute to Australian Community and Society. My parents are willing to apply for the Contributory Parent Visa.
We ask that the Minister takes in to account that if my parents go back to South Africa that this will have a great mental health impact on myself and my family. It will have a huge metal health impact on my parents as they will miss out on the birth of their second grand child, miss the massive bond they have with their first-born grandchild and their close friends within Australia.
I fear that if they go back to South Africa with the current COVID-19 issues. COVID-19 is more prevalent in South Africa. Violent Crime and Discrimination escalated even more than before in South Africa. This will cause continuous family stress. They will also have to start all over by getting work, finding housing and this will be difficult especially with both of them being above 50 years of age.
They love Australia and have made Australia their new home. We request from the bottom of our hearts that they will be able to remain within Australia, whose dearest family are Australians.
