New Temporary Parent Visas Announced
October 12, 2016

The Turnbull Coalition Government today confirmed it will implement its election commitment to introduce a new temporary sponsored parent visa. The temporary sponsored parent visa will allow Australians to sponsor their parents to stay in Australia for up to five years.

Assistant Minister for Immigration and Border Protection Alex Hawke today announced a series of community consultations and called for public submissions to assist the Government with the final design of the new temporary visa and the legislative changes required to implement it.

“The Turnbull Government recognises that many Australian migrant communities face particular pressures through the separation of children from parents and grandchildren from grandparents,” Mr Hawke said. News welcomed among many in Australia. The Government\ want to help families reunite and spend time together, while ensuring that we do so in a way that does not burden Australia’s health care system.” Mr Hawke said.

“Improving arrangements for parents of Australians to spend time with their family in Australia, whilst mitigating costs to the Australian taxpayer, was a key objective of both major parties at the recent election.  It is now important we get this balance right in the design of the temporary sponsored parent visa.”

The introduction of such a visa is a significant shift from current visa options for parents.  “I encourage migrant communities to get involved in the consultation process and provide feedback to assist in the design of this visa” Assistant Minister Hawke said.

It is envisaged this important election commitment to migrant families will be implemented by the Turnbull Government in 2017.The Turnbull Government is seeking community submissions on a series of issues which will affect the final design of the temporary sponsored parent visa.
