Visa Requirements for Parent Visas

Visa Requirements for Parent Visas

Every visa application must meet the actual legal requirements for that particular visa subclass in order to be successful. These requirements are found in the Migration Act 1958, Migration Regulations 1994, as well as in the policy guidelines contain in the Procedural Advice Manual (PAMS) which DIAC Case Officers use to assess applications. We can provide you with the migration expertise to submit the best possible visa application.

Applicants for a visa in the Parent category must be sponsored. Parents are generally sponsored by their child, who must be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen.

Generally, the following are requirements for visas in the Parent category:

  • The applicant must be a parent of a child who is an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen.
  • The applicant's child must be settled in Australia (in most cases, resident for at least 2 years) and must sponsor the applicant.
  • The applicant must meet health and character requirements
  • The applicant must pass the balance of family test.

In addition to the abovementioned requirements for all visas in the parent category, an Assurance of Support and an Assurance of Support bond must be provided. Lodgement of this bond is not required until just before grant of a visa.
