At Aussizz we lay special emphasis on Parent Visa as the number of immigrants armed with this
visa is defined for each year. Normally parents of children permanently settled in Australia
are offered this visa. Sponsorship for such immigrants is provided by a resident Australian
child. Number of immigrants travelling to this country based on this visa type being limited
there is always a beeline globally.
To apply for an Australian Parent Visa a parent must appear and pass a 'balance of family
test'. Sponsors for this visa category should be either:
- An Australian citizen;
- A permanent resident of Australia;
- An eligible citizen of New Zealand.
It may be noted that an applicant immigrating to this country with a Parent Australia visa is
not immediately eligible for age pension. Permanent residents of Australia settled newly
need to wait for a period of ten years before being entitled to Australian Age pension.
Entitlements of Parent Visa Holders
Holders of Australian parent visas are allowed to settle
in Australia permanently. As a permanent resident you are allowed to live
and work in this country. You are also entitled to health care benefits and social security
