Contributory Aged Parent Visa (subclass 864)
This permanent visa enables a parent of a settled Australian citizen and permanent resident move to Australia.
Must be sponsored by a settled child living in Australia who is an Australian Citizen or Permanent resident.
- Be inside Australia when applying for the visa and when a decision is made.
- Meet the balance of family test.
- Have an Assurance of Support.
- Be old enough to receive the age pension in Australia
Meet the balance of family test:
- At least half of your children and step-children are Australian Citizens or permanent residents
- There are more children living in Australia than in any other single country
Cost of visa:
Australian Government visa fee due when the visa is lodged – AUD$4,765.00 main applicant plus $2,380.00 for partner.
Contributory fee AUD$43,600.00 per person
Assurance of Support bond AUD$10,000.00 or $14, 0000 for a couple
You must be in Australia when you apply and when a decision is made.
- 90% of applications 48-60 months
Visa Go Australia fee to process the visa:
Total fee is £1,900.00 paid in 2 stages.
£950.00 Due on Lodgement of Visa
This visa is suitable for applicants old enough to receive the age pension in Australia who want to lodge their application whilst in Australia on a tourist visa. This way the applicant can stay in Australia on a bridging visa whilst a decision is made on their Parent visa. This alleviates having to wait the 4 years that it is currently taking the Australian Government to process the Contributory Parent (subclass 143) visa.
Sue made our whole process stress free.
We honesty could not have done it all with out knowledge and support.
I have already been recommending visa go to friends who are looking to start the process.
Thank you so much again!!!
Sue was a dream to deal with and thoroughly checked over all of our documents ensuring that everything was of the exacting standards of the Australian Government. We could not have completed process without Sue. Thank you once again for all of your help.
Sue was amazing throughout, keeping us updated each step of the way, and providing detailed guidance at the start of each stage, which enabled us to start preparing and collating everything needed for the next part when the time came. Sue’s replies to the many emails that I've sent her way over the course of this process, were always prompt and patient, and nothing ever seemed to much trouble. Sue’s experience and understanding of the processes, timelines and the strict format in which things had to be done, meant that she was able to advise us and provide guidelines, which meant that when we submitted each stage, we were not having to worry about delays due to incomplete applications.
18 months on from that initial meeting - we have now been living and working in Australia for 8 months, and have recently changed onto a permanent visa.
We are extremely glad that we chose to work with Visa Go, and want to say a massive thank you to Sue, Darren and the team for all of their support and assistance throughout.
Darren always took the time to answer any questions and help me through the process.
Within weeks he had my partner visa submitted and now I have my permanent residency!
I couldn’t thank Darren and the team enough 👍
My case officer, Sue, has been very professional and knowledgeable throughout the process providing great customer service, from providing the documents required to promptly replying to all queries.
So, to Darren, Kimberley and Sue, thank you all for your support to achieve my Visa.
Our visa process took 11 months (as expected for the visa we applied for) and Sue kept us on track and up to date all the time, extremely organised and always happy to help and provide us with her support.
I highly recommend Visa Go Australia, we couldn't imagine trying to go through this process without Sues help and guidance. Samantha Mills
Can't thank Darren and Kimberley enough.
