Parents may be able to immigrate to Australia using a parent visa if their child is an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen. At Wiser immigration, we lay special emphasis on parent visa as several immigrants armed with this visa are defined for each year. Normally parents of children permanently settled in Australia are offered this visa. An Australian residing child provides sponsorship for such immigrants.
Common Pre-Conditions For Application
To apply for an Australian Parent Visa, a parent must appear and pass a ‘balance of family test’. Sponsors for this visa category should be either:
- An Australian citizen
- A permanent resident of Australia
- An eligible citizen of New Zealand
It may be noted that an applicant immigrating to this country with a Parent Australia visa is not immediately eligible for the age pension. Permanent residents of Australia settled newly need to wait for ten years before being entitled to the Australian age pension.
