Parent visa belongs to a category of family visa. There are many Australian family visas and parent visa is one of them. On 2 June 2014 the government introduced significant changes to the Other Family visas.

Parent visa is broadly divided into two categories. One can be applied while you are in Australia, while the other visa can be applied when you are out of Australia.

If you are in Australia

  • Aged parent visas (subclass 804)
    These visas are for parents whose age is equivalent to a person who is eligible for an Australian Age pension.
  • Contributory Aged Parent (Residence) visa (subclass 864)
    If you are a parent of child or children who are living in Australia, this is for you. It is a permanent visa for aged parents. This visa costs more than the aged parent visa but is generally processed faster.
  • Contributory Aged Parent (Temporary) visa (subclass 884)
    This is a temporary visa valid for two years. If you hold this visa you can apply for the permanent Contributory Aged Parent (Residence) visa (subclass 864).
  • Contributory Aged Parent (Residence) visa (from subclass 884 to subclass 864)
    If you are a holder of a temporary Contributory Aged Parent visa (subclass 884), you are eligible to apply for a permanent Contributory Aged Parent visa (subclass 864).

If you are outside Australia

  • Contributory Parent (Migrant) visa (subclass 143)
    This is a permanent visa for parents with children living in Australia. This visa costs more than the Parent visa but is generally processed faster.
  • Contributory Parent (Temporary) visa (subclass 173)
    This is a temporary visa valid for two years for parents with children living in Australia. If you hold this visa you can then apply for the permanent Contributory Parent visa (subclass 143).
  • Contributory Parent (Migrant) visa (from subclass 173 to subclass 143)
    If you are a holder of a temporary Contributory Parent visa (subclass 173), who want to apply for a permanent Contributory Parent visa(subclass 143), this is for you. An application for this visa can be made in Australia.
