Family visas are meant to provide a pathway for family members settled in Australia to sponsor their spouse, parents, children, or partner to stay with them in the country. If you are a citizen, a permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen, you are allowed to sponsor your family members to come and settle with you under the family visa stream.

The parent visa is one of the streams under the family visas category. It is designed for the parents of an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen. Your children or their eligible partners can sponsor your visa to the country. The definition of a parent as per this stream includes:

  • Biological Parent
  • Adoptive Parent
  • Legal Parent
  • Parent-In-Law
  • Stepparent
