Proposed New Temporary Parent Visa
The following proposal is likely to come into effect from November 2017:
For those who wish their parents to come to stay in Australia, a new temporary sponsored parent visa is to be introduced with numbers capped at 15,000 per year.
This is an attempt to improve on previous parent visa programs, which proved both costly and time consuming to process and complete.
Educations & Schools in Australia
Key components of the new visa include:
- Parents can now be sponsored for a period up to 3 – 5 years, with options available to extend this to a total of 10 years
- Acting as the sponsor, the child will be responsible for the payment of all of their parent’s health care costs for the duration of their stay
- The new visa will be rolled out in November 2017
