Parental Visa

 The Parental Visas allow parents of an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen to live in Australia. Immigration offers different pathways for Parental Visas depending on different circumstances such as previous and current Australia visa (if any), age, time you are willing to wait until a decision is made, or wiliness to pay high fees to fast track the decision process.

Although some specific requirements for this program vary according to the pathway chosen, to be eligible you must meet the following main requirements:

  • Be sponsored by one of your children who must be an Australian citizen, Australian Permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen.
  • Meet the balance of family test.

The balance of family test aims to determine your ties with Australia. To meet the requirements you need to:

  • have at least half of your children live permanently in Australia


  • have more of your children live permanently in Australia than in any other country
