Aged Parent Visa - Subclass 804
Subclass 804 of the Aged Parent Visa allows parents 55 and older to apply for permanent residency in Australia. They need an Australian citizen or permanent resident at least 18 years old to be their sponsor. Someone from New Zealand who has lived in Australia for two years may be able to sponsor your visa application. Parents can be supported by a younger family, guardian, or friend, provided they complete all other requirements.
This visa category is permanent and provides advantages to applicants and their families. They can settle down, attend school or work, apply for Australian citizenship, get health insurance, sponsor other family members, and move freely in and out of the country.
It’s important to note that most visa applicants fall under this group, meaning that a small number of visas are available. Your visa application may not be approved for up to 30 years. Applicants can avoid waiting 30 years by applying for a contributing parent visa, typically accepted in under 24 months.
The process of obtaining a visa for a parent who has made a significant financial contribution involves two stages. The process begins with an application for a temporary contributing visa, followed by an application for a permanent visa. Applicants for a contributing visa must pay higher fees and provide evidence of financial stability for a longer time frame.
How to apply
Those applying for a visa because of their age must present all necessary paperwork at the time of application. They must complete the Australian Immigration Application Form, and their sponsor must complete the Sponsorship Application Form. For the application to be processed, the applicant must fill out a form with information about their children and other dependents.
