Children of Australian citizens and permanent residents can sponsor one or both parents onshore or offshore under a parent or contributory parent visa.

These two parent categories provide eligible parents of settled Australian citizens or settled Australian permanent residents with the choice of three migration pathways to Australia.

Depending on their circumstances, applicants may apply for an offshore or onshore visa. Within the Family Stream Migration Program, a limited number of visa places are allocated to parent migration. Parents can expect to wait approximately fifteen years for the application to be finalized. More places are allocated to contributory parent category visas: applicants in this category generally can expect their applications to be finalized in under two years.
