Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa (subclass 870):

 

  • Applications to sponsor a parent for a Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa opened on 17 April
    2019.
  • Once a sponsorship application is approved, a sponsored parent is able to apply for a
    Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa. Applications for the visa opened on 1 July 2019.
  • The visa provides parents with a new pathway to temporarily reunite with their children in
    Australia, while ensuring that taxpayers are not required to cover additional costs. The visa
    responds to community concerns about the limited number of Parent places in the migration
    program and associated lengthy waiting periods.
  • To be eligible for the visa, a parent must be the biological parent, legal parent (including
    adoptive parent), step-parent or parent in-law of the sponsor, who must be an Australian
    citizen, Australian permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen.

    visas to visit up to a maximum period in Australia of 10 years, cannot work in Australia
  • You must:
    • have an approved Parent Sponsor before you can lodge an application for this visa
    • apply online for this visa
    • lodge your visa application within 6 months of the sponsorship approval, or 60 days if
      you are given Permission to Apply in Australia
  • You can Stay longer:
    • You can stay for a cumulative maximum 10 year period.
    • You cannot stay in Australia longer by extending this visa. You must apply for
      another visa.
    • You must be outside Australia for at least 90 days before being eligible to be
      granted another Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa, unless you have Permission
      to Apply in Australia.
    • If you have held Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visas for the cumulative
      maximum 10 year period, you must either depart Australia or apply for another
      kind of visa that will allow you to remain in Australia. You will not be eligible
      for grant of a further Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa.
