Subclass 884 Contributory Aged Parent Temporary Visa

The subclass 884 Contributory Aged Parent Temporary visa allows ‘aged parents’ of an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen who is settled in Australia to live temporarily in Australia.

To be classified as an ‘aged parent’, the main applicant must have reached the Australian pension age.

The subclass 884 Contributory Aged Parent Temporary visa is granted for two years and, in order to remain in Australia permanently, subclass 884 visa holders must apply for a subclass 864 Contributory Aged Parent Permanent visa, before the expiry of their subclass 884 visa.

Given the processing time for non-contributory parent visas (currently 30 years plus) in most instances a Contributory Aged Parent visa is the only practical option to bring an aged parent to Australia to live permanently with their children.
