Commencement of the five year subclass 870 Sponsored Parent Temporary visa

On 1 March 2019, Minister Coleman announced that applications to sponsor a parent for a Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa will be open from 17 April 2019

  • The Sponsored Parent (Temporary) subclass 870 visa provides parents and grandparents with a new pathway to reunite and spend time together through having the opportunity to visit Australia for a continuous period of up to five years.
  • There is also the opportunity to apply for a second visa for another five years after a short period outside Australia, meaning parents and grandparents will be able to spend up to 10 years in Australia.
  • Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs David Coleman said the new visa the new visa will deliver great social benefits to families across Australia.
  • “Up to 15,000 Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visas may be granted each year, ensuring reunions are possible for many families. This will make a big difference to many Australian families.”
  • Measures have been put in place to strengthen the visa framework, and require Australian sponsors to act as a financial guarantor for any outstanding public health costs incurred by the visa holder whilst in Australia, including hospital and aged care fees. This ensures taxpayers are not required to cover additional costs.

Costs (Visa Application Charge)

The Visa Application Charge for the 870 parent visa will be:

  • $5000 for a three-year visa,
  • $10,000 for a five-year visa and
  • $20,000 for a ten-year visa.

General Information 

  • The sponsor (child) will be required to act as a financial guarantor for any outstanding public health costs incurred by the visa holder
  • The visa application process will involve two stages
    • with sponsors and parent applicants being assessed separately, and
    • with approval of the child-sponsor required before a visa application can be made by the sponsor’s parents.
  • Parents will be eligible for this new visa if:
  • Applicants will be required to obtain and maintain health insurance for the entire period of their stay in Australia.
  • Step-parents will be eligible only if they continue to be in a married or de factor relationship with a biological parent of the sponsoring child.
  • The “Balance of Family Test”, which has previously applied to other kinds of parent visas, will not be a criterion of the new temporary parent visa.
  • There will be no English language requirement for the grant of the visa.
  • It will be possible to “renew” this visa. However, the maximum period of stay that will be allowed under this program will be a total of 10 years.
  • Holders of the visa will not be able to engage in paid work. They will be allowed to assist with childcare and to undertake unpaid volunteer activities. They will also be allowed to undertake informal, short-term study.

 

What is Australian Permanent Residency and How Can You Get Permanent Residency (PR) ?

What Is a Permanent Resident (PR) ?

  • A PR visa is a visa (or status) that allows the holder of the visa to remain in Australia indefinitely
  • You can become a PR of Australia by applying for and being granted a PR visa

Australian Visas that Allow you to become a PR (or potentially allow you to become a PR) include:

Australian Permanent Residence status v. Being an Australian Citizen

An Australian permanent resident and an Australian citizen are not the same.

As a permanent resident of Australia, you generally can:

  • remain in Australia indefinitely on your visa
  • work and study in Australia
  • enrol in Australia’s national health scheme, Medicare
  • apply for bank loans to buy property, and buy any property without FIRB restrictions
  • sponsor eligible relatives for permanent residence under certain streams eg. Partner Visas, Parent visas, and 489 visas (if you reside in an approved designated area)
  • apply for Australian citizenship, if eligible
  • travel to and from Australia for as long as your travel facility permits (please have a look at the Resident Return Visa / RRV visa requirement)
  • You may also qualify for other government benefits and services. If you hold a permanent visa, but you are not residing in Australia, your eligibility for the above may be impacted.

Australian PR’s compared to Australian citizens: 

a PR can not

  • apply for or hold an Australian passport
  • access student loans
  • join the Australian Defence Force
  • vote in Australian Government elections unless you enrolled (as a British subject) before 26 January 1984
  • obtain ongoing work in the Australian Government
  • return to Australia from overseas without a valid travel facility (please have a look at the Resident Return Visa / RRV visa requirement)

When you are granted a permanent visa, you are usually permitted a 5-year travel facility.

This means you can leave and re-enter Australia as many times as you like in the 5 years from the date your permanent visa was granted, as long as your visa remains valid.

After 5 years, your travel facility expires and you will need to apply for, and be granted:

  • a Resident Return visa – if you wish to re-enter Australia as a permanent resident or
  • Australian citizenship – if you wish to travel as an Australian citizen.

How do you prove that you are an Australian Permanent Resident ?

Examples of when you may need to prove your permanent resident status include:

  • interacting with other Australian government agencies regarding entitlements and benefits such as Centrelink and Medicare, or
  • traveling to Australia, or
  • obtaining certain documentation from other Australian agencies or authorities such as:
    • Driver’s licence
    • Maritime Security Identification Card (MSIC)
    • interacting with foreign embassies, consulates and high commissions in Australia or for the purposes of obtaining a foreign travel document

Your PR status (visa) is linked to your passport, and your visa status is shown on VEVO

What is VEVO ? Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) allows visa holders, employers, education providers and other organisations to check visa details and conditions.

To prove permanent resident status you can use VEVO to:

  • email or print out your status or
  • give permission for an organisation or a government agency to perform a VEVO check.

You can do this, as long as your visa is linked with your passport or ImmiCard.

VEVO tells you:

  • which visa you hold
  • the expiry date of that visa
  • the must not arrive after date
  • the period of stay (how long you can stay)
  • conditions (what you can and can’t do)

Check you visa status here on VEVO

Invitation process

  • The highest ranked applications by points score are invited to apply for the relevant visa.
  • Applicants who have equal points scores, the time at which they reached their points score for that subclass (referred to as the date of effect) determines their order of invitation.
  • Expressions of Interest with earlier dates of effect are invited before later dates.

Estimates as at February 2019

Visa subclassMinimum points score
Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189)70
Skilled Regional (provisional) visa (subclass 489)80

Due to high levels of demand, and in keeping with previous years, the below occupation groups will be subject to pro rata arrangements to ensure availability of invitations across the program year.

Note:

  • these points do not apply for a 190 visa
  • for a 190 application, if the state approves your sponsorship, you get a guaranteed invitation for a 190 visa

Your visa is expiring or has expired

You must have a valid visa to stay in Australia. It is unlawful to stay in Australia without a valid visa.

  • Check your visa expiry date and conditions

Before you decide what to do next, you need to know:

  • when your visa expires
  • whether your visa has a condition that prevents further stay
  • your other visa conditions

What are your Options ?

Stay longer

  • If you want to stay longer in Australia, you must apply for a new visa. You can’t apply for a new visa in Australia if your current visa has a no further stay condition (eg. a 8503).
  • Leave Australia
  • leave Australia any time before your visa expires

Take the right steps to leave Australia if your visa has already expired

  • If you don’t have a valid visa
  • You must take steps to become lawful as soon as you can or leave Australia.
  • To leave Australia after your visa expires, apply for a Bridging visa E (BVE) as soon as you can. A BVE is a short-term visa that lets you remain lawful while you make arrangements to leave Australia.

Permanent residents

As a permanent resident, you can leave Australia and return on your permanent visa as often as you wish for the first 5 years after the visa is granted. After this:

If you are outside Australia when the travel component of your permanent visa expires, do not return to Australia on any other kind of visa. If you do:

  • you will lose your permanent resident status
  • your eligibility for citizenship might be affected
