Reunite With Your Parents in Australia
The Aged Parent visa (subclass 804) allows for older parents to permanently live in Australia. The primary requirement is for the applicant(s) to be a parent(s) of an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen who is settled in Australia. Applying for this type of visa can often be time-consuming and feel overwhelming, which is why we’re here to help you get started.
Benefits of an Aged Parent visa
The Aged Parent visa (subclass 804) is a permanent residence visa for aged parents. It enables you and any member of your family who has been approved for this visa to:
- Stay in Australia indefinitely
- Work and study in Australia
- Enrol in Medicare, Australia’s scheme for health-related care and expenses
- Apply for Australian citizenship (if eligible)
- Sponsor eligible relatives for permanent residence
- Travel to and from Australia for five years from the date the visa is granted (after that
time, you will need a resident return visa or another visa to return to Australia).
- The Contributory Aged Parent (Temporary) Visa (subclass 884) gives you a two-stage visa pathway in which you can first apply for a temporary visa and later for a permanent visa
- The Contributory Aged Parent visa (subclass 864) is a permanent visa that lets you pay the full costs of Contributory Parent migration through just one visa application.
Requirements for Aged Parent Visa Application
There are a number of specific requirements you need to meet in order to be eligible for an Aged Parent visa. You can apply for an Aged Parent visa (subclass 804) if you:
- Have a child who is a settled Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand, citizen
- Meet the Aged Parent visa age requirements
- Meet the balance-of-family test which measures a family’s ties to Australia
- Meet health and character requirements
- Have a sponsor who is a settled Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen.
If you’re unsure about whether you meet these requirements, our qualified Migration Agents will be able to assist you.
Alternative Options to the Aged Parent visa
There is significant demand for the Aged Parent visa (subclass 804) and, as a result, the visa may not be granted for years to come. Rather than waiting this time, you could also consider a Contributory Aged Parent visa, which is typically approved within two years. If you do wish to speed up the process by applying for a Contributory Parent visa, you will experience a higher application charge. There are two options for the Contributory Aged.
