Circumstances that affect Parent visa processing times

We assess applications on a case-by-case basis, and actual processing times can vary due to individual circumstances including:

  • whether you have lodged a complete application, including all necessary supporting documents
  • how promptly you respond to any requests for additional information
  • how long it takes to perform required checks on the supporting information provided
  • how long it takes to receive additional information from external agencies, particularly in relation to health, character, and national security requirements
  • for permanent migration visa applications, how many places are available in the migration programme
  • for citizenship applications, the time taken to attend a Citizenship Ceremony or receive a Citizenship Certificate.

Parent visa Processing time Australia –  Summary of a proposal – apply for parent visa

parent visa waiting time

Clear the parent visa backlog within three years and then cap waiting times to twelve months

This proposal would clear the current backlog within three years and then cap wait times at

12 months for the following parent visas:

• parent (subclass 103)

• contributory parent (subclass 143)

• aged parent (subclass 804)

  • contributory aged parent (subclass 864).

No applications for parent visas would be able to be lodged until the backlog is cleared.

The additional visas granted would not be subject to the annual migration cap.

Parent Visa processing and grants proposal – apply for parent visa

• Visas would be processed evenly throughout each year.

• All prospective applicants for contributory parent visas (subclass 143 and subclass 864) would

apply for the much cheaper parent (subclass 103) or aged parent (subclass 804) visas once

applications for visas re‐open after the backlog has been cleared.

– In addition, around 28 per cent of the current stock of contributory parent visa applicants would

withdraw their applications and re‐apply for the cheaper parent visa once visa application

re‐opens after the backlog is cleared.

• The total number of applications for parent visas would increase to 20,000 per year under the

proposal, based on historical data.

• As no visa applications would be accepted until the backlog is cleared, visa applications that would

otherwise have been received would occur in the year following the end of the backlog clearance

period.

– This leads to a very large increase in the number of visa applications lodged in 2023‐24.

• Around 12 per cent of applications for parent visas would not be granted based on historical data.

  • The annual mortality rate of applicants and holders of parent visas by age group would be equal to that of the current Australian population.
