Depending on your individual circumstances there are five types of Parent visas that you may be able to to apply for. They all work to allow the parent of an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen to come and live in Australia for a certain period of time or even permanently.
This visa is suited for parents who wish to visit and live in Australia on a temporary basis for 3 to 5 years. In some cases, you may be entitled to reapply for further subclass 870 visas to stay up to 10 years in Australia. Unlike other Parent visas, this visa does not lead to permanent residency, and you cannot apply for another parent visa subclass once you have applied for or hold this visa.
The Aged Parent visa subclass 804 is available to you if you are 67 years or older, and you are currently in Australia. It does not require you to pay a high Department fee, however, the processing times are much longer. This visa may enable the visa holder to gain permanent residency and access other benefits.
The Parent visa subclass 103 may allow you to stay in Australia permanently with your children without any restrictions and enjoy the benefits of living and working in Australia as a Permanent resident. It is attractive to many people wanting to move to Australia as it does not have an age requirement.
This visa does not require applicants to reach Australian pension age and differs from other visa types as the expense is much greater. The benefit of paying the premium is that it often expedites the process and visas are generally granted much quicker than others. It consists of both temporary and permanent visa types.
The contributory aged parent visa consists of both temporary and permanent visa types. It’s best suited for applicants over the age of 67 who are looking to reunite with their families in Australia. Similar to the subclass 173 and 143 visas, the cost of the subclass 884 and 864 is much more than other visa types.
