Australian government announced to accept the sponsorship applications for new Temporary Sponsored Parent Visa (subclass 870) with effect from April 17, 2019. It’s a great news for the Australian migrants and their parents outside Australia waiting to be together since long. The options that the migrants have right now to sponsor parents are not much familiar, they either offer shorter stay visa, such as Visitor visa or the official parent category visas, which have quite lengthy processing time.
The new parent visa is a temporary visa and not the permanent visa, however, it allows the parents to stay in Australia for longer period, i.e. up to 5 years. The parents who get successfully sponsored can further renew their visas for the next five years, provided they meet the criteria of remaining outside Australia for a short period.
The major advantage of this new Parent visa is that there is no Balance of Family Test requirement for Subclass 870 visa, which was mandatory in case of permanent Parent visas. This means, to apply for this visa, the visa applicants don’t need to have more than half of their children living in Australia.
However, key thing to note that there won’t be any working rights to the parents sponsored through this visa. Also, the new visa won’t prevent the applicants from applying for the alternate visas, i.e. permanent parent visa or Visitor visa.Moreover, the new parent visa announcement will not have any impact on the existing visa.
If the cap limit of the visa is reached within any program year, no further visas will granted the same year. The new visas will be granted from the start of the next program year only, i.e. 1st July.
