 Bringing Parents and Children Together in Australia!

Australian Citizens and Permanent Residents normally resident in Australia can sponsor their parents for Australian Permanet Residence, as long as the parents are healthy and meet the "Balance of Family" test.  The "Balance of Family" test says that at least half of the parents children must live permanently in Australia, or that that more children must be living permanently in Australia than in any other single country. 

A limit is placed on the number of Parent Visas granted in each financial year.  There are two different categories of visa, namely:

  • Parent Visa  (1,000 granted per year.  Waiting list about 16 years)

  • Contributory Parent Visa (3,500 granted per year.  Waiting list about 18 months)

The Contributory Parent Visa is much more expensive than the parent  visa, but the processing time is much faster. 

If parents over 65 for men or 63 for women qualify for an "aged parent" and may be able to apply in Australia.

AusVisas will make sure that you qualify and let you know all the evidence you need to show that you meet all the DIAC requirements and increase your chances of your application's success.
