For anyone living in Australia who wishes to bring their parent from overseas to live with them permanently, you are going to have questions relating to immigration policies and processes which may allow it to happen. The first point is that you can indeed bring parents from overseas to live with you in Australia, but as you would expect there are certain requirements. Read on, and you will find the requirements as advised by www.successmigration.com.au that would allow your parents from overseas to live with you in Australia.
Parent Visa Requirements
It should come as no surprise to you that as with any other kind of visa which applies to someone wishing to have permanent residency in Australia, there are requirements that have to be met. In the case of a parent visa, these requirements can be split into two types. The first group of requirements are the primary ones, and it is these which have no leeway. In other words, if these requirements are not met, then any parent visa application is likely to be refused.
Primary (Mandatory) Requirements
The first primary requirement is that in order for your overseas parents to apply for a parent visa to allow them to live with you, you must be either be [A] An Australian citizen or [B] Have permanent residency in Australia and have lived here for at least 2 years.
Whilst that first primary requirement is fairly straightforward, the second primary requirement does cause some confusion, but it is not as complicated as it might seem at first. It is called the ‘Family Balance Test’, and its criteria apply to those who have more than one child living in Australia, so if you are your parent’s only child as long as the first requirement applies you can ignore this one.
