Parent Visa

Australian Migration Centre

Permanent Visa

To qualify for this visa, you must meet the balance of family test. To meet the balance of family test, at least 50% of your children and stepchildren must be Australian citizens or PR holders.

You may qualify to apply for either contributory parent or aged parent visa subclasses. With the Parent Visa, you will be able to stay in the country indefinitely.

Parent Visa allows you to work and enjoy Australia’s public healthcare scheme. This visa leads to Australian citizenship upon satisfying the required residence criteria.

Temporary Residence Visa

Applicants have the option of staying in Australia continuously for either three or five years, with a maximum extension period of ten years.

The sponsor must be the applicant’s child, and visas do not need to meet the balance of family test. The potential sponsor of this visa needs to provide evidence that they meet the income threshold specified by the government in order to be approved as a sponsor. At any given time, only two parents per household can be sponsored for this visa.


To be eligible to apply for a parent visa either as a permanent or temporary resident, you must have a sponsor.

Your sponsor must be an Australian permanent resident, an Australian citizen, or an eligible New Zealand citizen who is at least 18 years old and has lived in Australia legally for at least 2 years prior to the parent lodging their visa application.
