Family Visas

There are a number of visa subclasses (types) for children, parents and relatives of permanent residents or Australian citizens. The type of visa for your circumstance can best be determined by analyzing your situation. There are also a number of terms you need to know to understand family visa options e.g. the balance of family test, queueing and capping, etc...

Most family visas have long processing times. For example, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP)  indicate an average 14 month waiting period for some Child Visas. Other visa processing times however are extremely long. For example,  DIBP indicate a thirty year (Yes, 30 year!) waiting list for non-contributory parent visas.

The range, variety and complexity of family visa options mean it is best to talk to a Registered Migration Agent to determine your best family visa option.
