Parent Visas

 

The parent of an Australian citizen, permanent resident or Eligible New Zealand citizen who passes the balance of family test may, subject to other criteria,migrate to Australia on the basis of the parent/child relationship. All Parent Visas, except for the “Aged Parent“,”Aged Contributory Parent “ and any permanent Contributory Parent Visa, must be applied for and granted outside Australia. Therefore, the applicant is not eligible for a bridging visa during processing.

 

Exceptions apply to holders of a substituted 676 Visa. There are essentially two categories of Parent Visas :

  • Parent
  • Contributory Parent

 

The main difference between the two categories are:

    • Programs number and caps are higher for contributory parent visas
    • Non-contributory parent visas take up to 19 years to process , while Contributory parent visas take between 2-3 years
    • Contributory parent visa are considerably more expensive than parent visa


The two categories can be broken down further as follows :

 PARENT :

    • Parent (Migrant ) subclass 103 – An application for this visa may be lodged by an applicant of any age while the applicant is outside or inside Australia . Applicants are not entitled to a bridging visa and must be outside Australia at the time the visa is granted .
    • Aged parent (Residence) subclass 804 – An Application for this visa must be lodged while an applicant is in Australia . The visa is for ‘aged’ parents and may be granted while the applicant is in Australia . Processing delays Are extensive for this visa , An Applicant is ordinarily eligible for a bridging visa during processing – however , applicants are not eligible for Medicare until the visa is granted .

 

 Contributory parent :

    • Contributory Parent (Migrant) subclass 143 – An application for this visa may be lodged by an applicant of any age while the applicant is outside or inside Australia . The applicant is not entitled to a bridging visa and must be outside Australia at the time the visa is granted. Applicants who hold a contributory subclass 173 may, however , be inside or outside Australia at the time of grant , making them eligible for a bridging visa during processing .
    • Contributory parent (Temporary ) subclass 173- An application for this visa must be lodged by an applicant of any age while the applicant is outside or inside Australia . The applicant is not entitled to a bridging visa and must be outside Australia at the time the visa is granted .

    • Contributory Aged Parent (Temporary) subclass 884 – An application for this visa must be lodged while n applicant is in Australia . The visa is intended for ’aged’ parents and may only be granted while the applicant is in Australia. Processing times for this visa are roughly 2-3 years . An applicant is ordinarily eligible for a bridging visa-however,applicant to stagger payment of the VACs leading to grant of the permanent visa (subclass 864),rather than having to pay the large fees for the subclass 864 in an abridging period .

 

All parent visas, including those in the Contributory category, are permanent visas allowing the holder to travel to and enter Australia for five years from the date of grant. The visa holder may remain in Australia indefinitely – however, if the holder intends to travel and re-enter Australia after the five-year period, they must either become a citizen or apply for a resident return visa.
