Parent Visas for Australia 9870285679

Parents are eligible to migrate to Australia if their child (natural, adopted or step child) is in Australia and is an Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen.

Eligibility criteria
To apply for parent visa, you must be sponsored by your child, or another eligible sponsor, in Australia. Your spouse and other dependent family members may be included in your application if they meet the specified requirements. To be eligible for this visa, you must pass the Balance of Family test and meet age requirements.

Balance of Family Test
The total number of children and their permanent residence location affects the balance of family test. The test specifies that:
  • at least half of your children should be permanent residents in Australia
OR
  • you should have more children living permanently in Australia than in any other country
The Balance of Family test can be complex, with possibility of several combinations. For ALL parent visas, it is necessary to pass the Balance of Family Test. Please contact us to confirm your eligibility and further requirements regarding your proposed application.

Age Criteria
An aged parent™ is one who is old enough to be granted an Australian age pension. However, there is a waiting period of 10 years before you can receive the Australian age pension (unless there is a reciprocal agreement with another country which pays you a pension). Feel free to contact us for more details about the eligibility criteria for you.

Note: The requirement to be an ‘aged parent’ is necessary only for the main applicant for an onshore parent visa.
For a brief overview of what each visa entitles you to, see the quick reference table.

Note: There are a limited number of parent visa grants each year, and this number is reviewed annually by Australian Immigration Authority.
