Processing of Parent Category visas can take considerably longer than other Family Stream visas. This is due in part to the low processing priority they have been given and the high demand in this category.

Processing times vary considerably amongst the various Parent Visa subclasses. The Contributory Parent category has a higher processing priority than the Parent category. When a cap is reached, applicants who have met the legal requirements for the grant of a Contributory Parent visa are placed in a global queue for the grant of that visa.

When further visa places become available and applicants meet all the legal criteria for the grant of that visa, visas are granted in order of the queue date allocated to an applicant.

If an applicant has been placed in a queue to wait for visa place availability, their approximate position in that queue can be checked by using the Queue Position Calculator. The data is updated on a monthly basis.
