My parents applied for the 143 visa back in 2019. Now they're over 70 years old. Is it possible for us to switch their application to an 864 Visa? If they apply for the 864 while they're in Australia (on shore), they would get a bridging visa (they have a visitor visa without a "No Further Stay" condition).

If we can switch from the 143 to the 864, will that change our original application date, which is May 2019, or will that date be carried over to the new application (864)?

Thanks in advance for your helpful feedback.

You'll lose the 1st installment payment you made for the 143 visa and you'll need to submit a new application for the 864 visa. Unfortunately, you can't just transfer the application.
