Proposed New Temporary Parent Visa

by | Jun 5, 2019

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.
