Introduction to Parent Visa

Moving to a new country is a thrilling adventure, but it can also be challenging to live far from family. If you’ve made Australia your home and want your parents to join you, the Parent Visa is your solution. At Settlers Migration & Education, we are here to guide you through the process with our extensive expertise and dedication.

Understanding the Parent Visa

The Australian Parent Visa permits parents to reside in Australia if their child is an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen. Various categories of Parent Visas cater to different needs and circumstances.

Parent Visa Categories

  1. Contributory Parent Visa (Subclass 143)
    • This visa allows parents to live permanently in Australia. It requires a higher application fee but has a shorter processing time compared to non-contributory options.
  2. Contributory Aged Parent Visa (Subclass 864)
    • Similar to the Subclass 143 visa but specifically for aged parents who meet the age requirement for an Australian age pension.
  3. Parent Visa (Subclass 103)
    • This is a non-contributory visa with a lower application fee but a significantly longer processing time.
  4. Aged Parent Visa (Subclass 804)
    • For aged parents who can apply for this visa while in Australia. It has a longer processing time and lower cost.
