About this visa

This visa allows parents to migrate to Australia permanently to join their children who are living in Australia.

This visa requires that you be sponsored by your child, or another eligible sponsor, in Australia.

This visa is for you if you are a parent of a child or stepchild who, at the time the visa application is lodged, is 'settled' and either an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen. This means your child must have been lawfully resident in Australia for a reasonable period, normally two years, although a shorter period can be considered for Australian citizen children if there are compelling and compassionate circumstances.

In addition you must be able to demonstrate one of the following:
  • at least half of your children are Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or eligible New Zealand citizens who are usually resident in Australia
  • you have more children living in Australia as Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or eligible New Zealand citizens than in any other country.

Your partner and other dependent family members may be included in your application provided they satisfy certain requirements.

Minimum eligibility to apply this visa

  • You must be the parent of a child who is an Australian Citizen, An Australian Permanent Resident or An Eligible New Zealand Citizen.
  • You must have a commitment by a person prepared to provide you with an Assurance of Support.
  • You must meet the balance of family test.
  • You, your partner and all dependent family members must meet certain health requirements and will need to undergo a health examination.
  • You, your accompanying partner and all dependent family members aged sixteen and above must meet the character requirements.

What does this visa let me do?

  • This visa allows you and your accompanying partner and dependent family members to live as permanent residents in Australia.
  • You can also:
  • work and study in Australia
  • receive subsidised healthcare through Medicare and the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS)
  • access certain social security payments (subject to waiting periods)
  • be eligible to apply for Australian citizenship (subject to the residency eligibility criteria)
  • sponsor people for permanent residence (subject to waiting periods)


If the visa is granted the following requirements must be met.

Applicant and family members

You and any accompanying family members must comply with all Australian laws as permanent residents.


Your sponsor must continue to help you (and your family) settle in Australia by providing:

  • support
  • accommodation
  • financial assistance.

For this visa, the sponsor must comply with these obligations for the first two (2) years of residency in Australia.

Assurer of Support

The assurer must:

  • provide financial support to you (and your family) so you do not have to rely on any government forms of support; and
  • repay the Australian Government for any recoverable social security payments made by Centrelink to you and any others covered by the Assurance of Support

For this visa, the Assurance of Support must remain in place for two (2) years from the date you (and your family) arrive in Australia.
