Australia Introduces Temporary Visa for Parents of Immigrants

September 2016, 23
EMAIL  Print A+
Alex Hawke, assistant immigration minister of Australia recently announced that his government will soon start consultations with the community to inform them about a continuous 5 year visa for the elderly parents of the immigrants settled in Australia.

He further added that "Reuniting three generations of families has great societal benefits, and that's why we're announcing a temporary visa of five years. The Turnbull government will consult widely so that the setting for this visa enables the most options."

The new 5 year visa will be in effect from July 1st next year. 

According to the immigration minister, the present visa program is inept; the applicants at times have to wait for 30 years to get a visa approved. 

Presently parents of the citizens or permanent residents can apply for a visa under two streams;
  • 'Non-contributor' visa which usually takes a processing time of 18-30 years and costs approximately Australian dollar 7000, 
  • ‘Contributor' visa which has nearly 2 years processing time and its fees is around Australian dollar 50000.

The declaration for the visa reform is a result of the report release by the Productivity Commission which revealed that the elderly parents of the immigrants cost the Australia approximately between $2.6 billion to $3.2 billion over their lifetime.
