Parent Visa Immigration and Migration Consultation 

If you want to bring your parents to Australia to live with you, you can make it happen without much hassle. Simply follow the required steps. The Australia Parent Migration Visa allows permanent residents or people to sponsor their parents for a PR visa in Australia. However, all of these require that the applicant has a child who is an Australian permanent resident or citizen, or a New Zealand citizen who has obtained visa eligibility. You may also require professional guidance as you navigate through the whole process as it proves to be a difficult immigration process at times. 

Parent Visas

Parent Visa subclasses for Australian migration

Contributory Parent Visa – 143

Contributory parent (temporary) visa – 173

Contributory Aged Parent (temporary) visa – 884

Contributory Aged parent visa – 864

Aged Parent Visa – 804

Parent visa – 103

Contributory Parent Visa – 143

This visa enables parents to remain in Australia if their child is an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, or qualified New Zealand citizen. The nature of this visa is permanent when compared to Contributory Parent Visa – 173. If applicants choose to stay in Australia indefinitely, they may apply for Contributory Parent (subclass 143) (within two years of arriving on a 173 visa). Applicants may live in Australia as a permanent resident, sponsor qualified family members to move to Australia, and, if eligible, apply for Australian citizenship. You are only eligible for this visa if you a) hold a Contribute Parent (Temporary) (subclass 173) and b) Follow all of the requirements for a temporary contributory parent visa (subclass 173). 

Contributory parent (temporary) visa – 173

This visa is temporary in nature when compared to Contributory Parent Visa – 143. With this visa, you can live, study, and work in Australia for two years. To be eligible for this visa, the applicant must be a qualified New Zealand citizen, an Australian citizen, or an Australian permanent resident. The child has been legally present in Australia for at least two years and the applicant must be in good health and meet the required character requirements. Also, the applicant must pass the family balance test. Before an applicant may apply, the Department of Home Affairs must authorize the sponsor. If applicants choose to stay in Australia beyond the period of two years, they may apply for Contributory Parent (subclass 143) (within two years of arriving on a 173 visa).

Contributory Aged Parent (temporary) visa – 884

Like the visa subclass 173, the Contributory Aged Parent (temporary) visa – 884 is also of a temporary nature. It is a two-year temporary visa that allows the parent of a settled Australian citizen or qualified New Zealand citizen to reside in Australia and apply for a permanent Contributory Visa (Subclass 864). The eligibility criteria are the same across all the subclasses, it is mandatory for the applicant’s sponsor (the child) to be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, or qualified New Zealand citizen. However, in case the child is than 18 years of age, the applicant may be sponsored by the child’s spouse (must be at least 18 years old and a qualified Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, or New Zealand citizen), a child’s or child’s spouse’s relative or guardian (must be at least 18 years old and a settled Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen), and a non-profit organisation serving the neighborhood (a written proof establishing the link between the sponsor and applicant must be presented at the time of arrival to Australia).

Contributory Aged parent visa – 864

The contributory aged parent visa (subclasses 884 and 864) enables older parents to remain in Australia. The permanent nature of this visa extends benefits like to live, research, and work in Australia for an unspecified period of time, the Medicare, Australia’s federal health insurance policy health benefits. The candidate will also be able to make an application for citizenship in Australia (if eligible) and sponsor relatives who are eligible for permanent residency. From the date the visa is issued, the applicant has five years to leave and return to Australia. The eligibility criteria are the same as Contributory parent (temporary) visa – 173.

Aged Parent Visa – 804

This 103 Visa Australia allows the applicant to freely enter and exit Australia for a period of 5 years from the date of the visa’s issuance. The visa also enables the holder to travel to other parts of Australia and enrol in Australia’s universal health care system. The 103 Visa Australia is a permanent visa granted to people who have children who are permanent Australian citizens who are nominated by them. The requirements for applying for a Parent Visa Subclass 103 vary from those for other visas. The applicant can apply for his visa by declaring himself a retiree, which allows for certain exceptions to the law or by being sponsored by a qualified sponsor, the most common of which is his child. If the applicant is under the age of 18, he or she may be sponsored by a family or a community group. The eligibility criteria are mostly the same. 

Parent visa – 103

The process for applying for this visa is the same as the others listed above. However, the client must not have previously applied for or held a Sponsored Parent (Temporary) (Subclass 870) visa while they apply for this visa. This visa enables parents to remain in Australia if their child is an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, or qualified New Zealand citizen.
