Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa applicants must:
  • – be sponsored by a person who is an approved parent sponsor
  • – be at least 18 years of age
  • – be outside Australia (unless invited in writing to apply by the Department), for at least 90 days if the applicant holds or has previously held a Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa
  • – not have engaged in payment for visas conduct
  • – provide evidence of access to funds
  • – provide evidence of health insurance
  • – not have an outstanding public health debt (unless appropriate arrangements have been made to repay the debt)
  • – satisfy health, character, and national security requirements.
Unlike permanent Parent visas, there is no Balance of Family Test requirement for this visa, meaning a visa applicant is not required to have more than half of their children residing in Australia.

I would rather prefer to go with the 600 visitor visa with a stay period of 1 year and re-apply, which has a very minimal fee of $140 than paying $5000 for 3 years.:p
But for those who wish their parents to be in Oz for a continuous longer period, the new 870 is a good option.
Choice is purely based on individual circumstances.

The main condition is that the sponsor must live there for 4 years so it is not for newcomers :oops:

But I found it a good move as there is not any condition which cannot be met and the purpose is clearly visible that it is only for those people who want to just LIVE with their parents, not PR, no work nothing like that, Only family re-union

So for newcomers visit visa for Parents is the best option I guess?

If the parents are planning to stay for less than 1 year, yes.

I believe yes as the other options are either impossible ( 30 years waiting) or too expensive to consider (~50k AUD)

I am also wondering what extra this subclass offers compared to visitor visa as $5000 >> $140 * 3.

Only benefit, visa holder can stay for continuous period of 3/5years + 3/5 more years...
No need to exit and re apply.

$4580 seems a bit high to extend the validity of a visitor visa from 1 year to 3 years (because if there is no other advantage, the new 870 visa is sort of an extended visitor visa).

Maybe saving the hassle of re-applying, exit-entry, new medicals, waiting period for extensions etc. Nothing much than this

still waiting. i applied in 1st week june to be a sponsor. still no news

Are you going thru some agent or by yourself?
Any idea about the timeline for each step? it would be helpful if you share it here as i am planning to apply one for my mom...

I applied visit visa 600 but they gave us 3 months stay for each visit for 1 year long.... so every 3 months she has to exit and come which is a headache as i need to find near by country to exit and bring her back... so I want to apply 870 for my mom so that i will get it granted before her visit visa expiry date.. please share if you know the timelines for this process.. thank you

Do we need to pay $5000/- again if we want that to be renewed??

Hi.... i have few questions on 870 parent visa :) pls help...

1. how long they take for sponsorship approval? after sponsorship approval, how long they give us time to apply for visa?
2. if 15k quota is over, will they move our application to next year pool or do we need to re-apply again?
3. in my case, my mom is now in India and i am planning to apply now for sponsorship approval. Meanwhile, i'm taking her to Australia under 600-tourist visa by October. so can i apply for sponsorship approval when she is in India and lodge visa application when she is inside Australia?

Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
