Finally, at the end of April, the processing of non-contributory parent visas advanced by one month! It is worth noting that the applications submitted in November 2011 started being processed in December 2023. It took a full five months to see this little progress!

Given this pace, it is understandable why Department of Home Affairs has announced that the waiting period for non-contributory and aged parent visas is as long as 29 years.

For those seeking a faster option, contributory parent visas are indeed quicker. According to the processing times published, contributory parent visas take approximately 12 years to process, saving 17 years compared to the non-contributory parent visas. As parents age, sometimes the wait can be unbearable!
