Migration to Australia under Parent Visas can be done in a few different ways, to accommodate different circumstances and cases.
There are Contributory Parent Visas and Non-contributory Parent visa. The Non-contributory Parent visa applications have a lower processing priority than the contributory family visas and you can lodge an application for either visa in or out of Australia.
The general requirements common to both types of Parent Visas are that you have to pass the balance family test. You must be a parent of an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen.
As there are different processing times, the Health and character requirements must be met at the time of decision.
Non-Contributory Parent Visas have long processing queue, usually between 5-10 years. The Contributory Parent Visa has much shorter processing time.
