You might be able to get a permanent Contributory Parent (Temporary) visa (subclass 143) if you either:
-hold a temporary Contributory Parent (Temporary) visa (subclass 173)
-have a child who is:
an Australian citizen, an Australian permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen
lawfully resident in Australia for about two years (a shorter period can be considered for Australian citizens if there are compelling and compassionate circumstances)
-meet the balance-of-family test
-have an accepted assurance of support
-meet health and character requirements.
You must be sponsored by an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen. The sponsor needs to have been living lawfully in Australia for at least two years before you apply for this visa. For most applicants, your child or your child's spouse or de facto partner will need to sponsor you.
If your child is younger than 18 years of age you can be sponsored by:
-your child's spouse, if the spouse has turned 18 and is a settled Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen
-a relative or guardian of your child
-a relative or guardian of your child's spouse, if the spouse has not turned 18 and is a settled Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen
-a community organisation.
An assurance of support is a legal commitment to give you financial support so that you do not have to rely on social security payments. The assurance covers you and any family members included in your application.
-give you financial assistance for ten years
-repay any recoverable social security payments you receive in the first ten years of living in Australia
-lodge a bond for each applicant aged 18 years or older:
AUD10 000 — for the main applicant
AUD4000 — for each adult family member included in your application.
If the assurer is an organisation, a higher bond is required for each application.
The bond is refunded ten years after you are granted this visa. Any debts to the government are deducted from the
bond and only the balance is refunded. Becoming an Australian citizen does not release the bond earlier.
