Visa Guide: What You Need to Know Before Applying for a Carer Visa

A Carer Visa is a permanent visa issued to a relative of an Australian who requires substantial and continuous assistance (at least two years) due to a long-term or permanent medical condition that is causing intellectual, sensory or physical impairment of their ability to perform activities of daily living.


The relative must be unable to “reasonably obtain” the needed care from another relative in Australia or an Australian healthcare facility, such as a hospital or a nursing facility.

You may want to add that due to the low number of places available in the migration program for this type of visa, waiting times may be very long and that for many people (if not most) this may not be a suitable pathway.

How true Nick!
A Filipina friend of my wife applied for a Carer visa for her sister to look after her profoundly disabled daughter.
Not only did they have to provide numerous medical opinions, the daughter had to undergo a rigorous medical examination, and the family had to prove why adequate care could not be provided by someone in Australia. It was only the fact that the daughter required 24/7 care that the application was approved. Even then it took around 3 years to be granted.
I think there is expectation in the Filipino community that an Australian Carer Visa is similar to a Canadian Carer Visa, which is definitely not the case!

I think the original post was meant to promote a financial services business. That is fine in itself, but I find the way they presented the carer visa information potentially misleading. There are very few places available and as you have pointed out, the burden of proof is almost unsurmountable for most people.
