What is a Contributory Aged Parent Subclass 884 Temporary Visa?

The subclass 884 Contributory Aged Parent temporary visa lets older parents live in Australia for up to two years if they are the parents of an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen who is settled in Australia. The Contributory Aged Parent Temporary visa allows parents to spread the costs of Contributory Aged Parent permanent migration over a number of years. This visa is temporary and cannot be extended or renewed. After arriving in Australia, visa holders have two years to apply for a Contributory Aged Parent subclass 864 permanent visa.

Applicants must be sponsored by a child or spouse of one of their children. The applicant’s sponsor needs to be settled in Australia which means they must have lived lawfully in Australia for the two years before the application is lodged. Applicants can be inside or outside Australia when they apply for the visa and when the visa is granted. Applicants who are in Australia when they apply for the visa are entitled to a bridging visa.
