Immigration to Australia (Sponsored Parent (Temporary) Visa - Subclass 870)

 

With this visa, you can visit Australia for up to 3 or 5 years per visa. You can apply for further visas to visit up to a maximum period in Australia of 10 years but you cannot work in Australia.

 

You must have an approved Parent Sponsor before you can lodge an application for this visa, and you must apply online for this visa. You must lodge your visa application within 6 months of the sponsorship approval, or 60 days if you are given Permission to Apply in Australia.

 

Permission to Apply in Australia allows you to apply for this visa in Australia, but not in immigration clearance. It must be requested by your sponsor in their sponsorship application form or when we are processing the sponsorship application or prior to visa application lodgement. If you have Permission to Apply in Australia, you must lodge your visa application within 60 days of sponsorship approval. If you do not apply within 60 days, your approved Parent Sponsor may apply again for Permission to Apply in Australia, if the sponsorship is valid. To find out how, contact the Department of Home Affairs for details.

If we do not approve the Permission to Apply in Australia request, you will have to lodge your visa application outside Australia within six months of sponsorship approval, or make an application for a different kind of visa to remain in Australia. If you do not have Permission to Apply in Australia, you must apply from outside Australia within six months of sponsorship approval or make an application for and be granted a different kind of visa to remain in Australia.
