Visitor Visa Subclass 600

18 months ago one of our three children emigrated to Perth, Australia. We would like to visit him for approximately one month, travel around Australia for about two to three months (the country is vast and has such a diversity of places to explore). Then we would want to spend approximately one month with our son before flying back to the UK. This would mean taking holidays to Australia of between four to five months.

We realise to achieve this we would have to get the six month visa (and return to the UK for the remaining six to seven months). Can we do this year after year - health and money permitting? Is there a limit to the number of times we can re-apply for the visa and have such a holiday?

We'd be very grateful for your advice.

Nick and Kerry

Normally it would come down to the "outside Australia than inside Australia" rule.

That not more than 12months in any 18 month period - so your plan should be ok.

There was/is talk of a new visa for parents to visit that is valid for 5-10 years - I don't know any more than that.

I've known some Brits who did that in the past. It was always an idea of mine too.
You just need to show genuine visitor reasons and the ability to finance that life without needing to work in Australia.
