This permanent visa lets a parent of a settled Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident of Australia or eligible New Zealand citizen move to Australia.
A new Contributory Parent visa application may take at least 12 years to process.
For more information, see Parent visa queue.
To be eligible, you should have an eligible child who is an established Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen, unless you are pursuing the Retirement Pathway. Demonstrating family ties that align with the balance-of-family test is a key requirement, unless you are taking the Retirement Pathway or hold a Subclass 173 visa. Assurance of Support is another essential component, ensuring you are well-supported during your time in Australia, except if you are on the Retirement Pathway. Moreover, your application should not overlap with or be concurrent with the Sponsored Parent (Temporary) (Subclass 870) visa. These prerequisites collectively lay the groundwork for your journey to join your loved ones in Australia.
Embrace the opportunity to make Australia your permanent home, enjoying the security and prospects that come with being a permanent resident. Strengthen the ties of family by sponsoring eligible loved ones to join you on this enriching journey. For those who meet the eligibility criteria, the path to Australian citizenship is illuminated, granting you the rights and belonging that come with being a part of this dynamic nation. This visa isn’t just a step forward; it’s a gateway to a future of lasting connections and shared accomplishments.
