What is Aged Parent and Relative Visa?

by V4 Migration Services Choose the Expert Migration Agent

When it comes to immigration, there are a lot of visas that are available to allow people from around the world to come and live in Australia. In some cases, if you have elderly parents or relatives who require care, you may be able to sponsor them and bring them over on what’s known as an aged dependent relative visa 838

This type of visa has strict requirements that must be met, but once you can prove eligibility, it can help your loved ones get the care they need while living close by in Australia.

Who can apply for this visa type?

If you are aged 65 or over or are a dependent parent of someone aged 18 years or over, an Australian citizen, you may be eligible for an aged parent visa. Different requirements depend on your country of origin. 

It is also available for applicants that are grandparents of a child who is an Australian citizen, resident, or eligible citizen living in Australia. It can even be granted to parents of a child adopted by citizens/residents of Australia as long as they meet all other requirements.

The criteria considered during the assessment of applications for aged dependent relative visa 838.

To be eligible for a Contributory Parent visa, you must meet certain criteria under each of these three categories: 

  1. Character
  2. Health
  3. Financial. 

The Aged Parent and Relative visa are also called the Contributory Parent or CP Visa. It is an Australian permanent residence visa that allows parents who are citizens or permanent residents of Australia to sponsor their parents who are over 65 years old or have significant health problems so that they can live in Australia permanently with them. To qualify for this visa, your parent needs to have an income (or own property) and not receive government benefits in Australia.

How much are the fees?

You will need to pay several fees to sponsor a parent or relative for an aged dependent relative visa subclass 114. These fees vary depending on what visa you apply for and where in Australia you live. 

For example, if you live in Western Australia and your family member is outside of that state, it will cost more to have them sponsored by an Australian resident.

How long does it take to process a visa application from start to finish?

Depending on where you apply, it can take anywhere from four months to a year or more for an application to be processed. The exception is if you are eligible for processing by Australia’s Premium Processing Service, which has an estimated processing time of 15 days. 

However, remember that Premium Processing applies only if you have nominated Australia as your country of choice to be assessed as a possible relative visa applicant.

Potential requirements for obtaining an aged parent/relative visa.

  • The most important requirement for obtaining an aged parent/relative visa is to be sponsored by a family member living in Australia who is at least 18 years of age. 
  • This sponsor must meet income requirements set by immigration law. 
  • Applicants must demonstrate that they have enough money, assets, or financial sponsorship from their sponsor (usually a child) to live in Australia. 
  • They also need proof that they do not have any relatives living in their home country.
