The Contributory Parent Visa lets parents live permanently in Australia if they have a child who is an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand Citizen who is settled in Australia
Eligibility of Parents and sponsors needs to be assessed including the balance of family tests and the sponsor being settled in Australia.
The costs for a Contributory Parent Migrant Visa (Subclass 143) for one applicant can cost up to $40,000. This cost can be split if a Temporary Contributory Parent Visa is applied for breaking the cost up over two years. However there are risks in this choice of parents falling sick in these two years.
