Exclamation what is the most suitable visa type

Hello,

I reached AUS on last Feb, after obtaining my PR under (175) skill visa category. I'm having only my father and I'm the only child in my family.

He is 69+ and I need to tack care of him since we don't have anybody.

What will be the earliest possibly of taking him to AUS?

And what will be the eligibility criteria that I have to meet ??

Thanking you for an early reply.
Compilable

If you are from a country that has eligibility for an ETA he could consider applying for one of those and then whilst in Australia you could consider having him applying for a parent visa though there is a requirement for sponsors to be settled in Australia and Immi may require you to have been here for at least two years before sponsoring a parent.
Have a look at details on Aged Parent (Residence) Visa (Subclass 804)

There is also a reference near bottom of that page re a 676 visa and ministerial intervention.
I've never been too sure but that may give some hope for a person not eligible for an ETA to come on a standard tourist visa which would likely have a No Further Stay condition and through Ministerial Intervention be able to have the NFS lifted to allow for the parent visa to be applied for.

You'll get more info from the Parent Visa Centre they suggest people contact.

Either way, if your father can get here and is able to apply for a parent visa, though it can take many years and even in excess of ten to have that visa granted, your father would be put on a Bridging Visa that would allow him to legally stay in Australia.

Thank you very much for the prompt reply. It was really helpful.

My father is from Sri Lanka, which is not entitled for ETA. In a situation if he is able to apply for standard tourist visa (No Further Stay condition). Are there any possibility to apply for Parent visa while keeping him on a Bridging visa ?

Thanking you with kind regards.

If he gets a standard tourist visa without the No Further Stay condition, he could apply for a parent visa and be issued with a bridging visa but many tourist visas do have the NFS and it is not possible to determine whether a tourist visa will have one or not and if there is a NFS, that usually means no further visa can be applied for.

The best thing for you to do is contact the Parent Visa Centre and ask them about that reference to the Ministerial Intervention and they should also be able to advise whether you need to be here for a certain time before being able to sponsor your father.

Thumbs up I found the answer !!!

Once again accept my sincere thanks for replying me promptly.

As you said, I gave a call to Parent Visa information center and came to know :
There is no waiting time of two years to sponsor your parents if you are a PR of Australia.

I appreciate the great help rendered by this forum and moderator who handle this thread while wishing you all the very best.

Keep up the good work, Internet won't be this much helpful if places like 'Australiaforum' and moderator's like 'Wanderer' do not exists.

Cheers !!!
