Contributory Parent Visa (Subclass 173 & 143)

Contributory Parent Visa (Subclass 173 & 143)

Brief Summary:

Designed for parents of Australian citizens, permanent residents, or eligible New Zealand citizens wishing to move to Australia, the Contributory Parent Visa offers a two-stage process towards permanent residency, starting with the temporary Subclass 173 and moving to the permanent Subclass 143. However, one may decide to directly apply for the permanent visa (subclass 143) without going through the process of temporary visa (subclass 173)

  • Overview:

    This visa pathway enables parents to live, work, and study in Australia while enjoying access to the country’s healthcare system. It provides a balance between family reunification and economic contributions to the Australian healthcare system.

  • About This Visa:

    • Subclass 173 (Temporary): A stepping stone towards permanent residency, allowing parents to experience life in Australia.
    • Subclass 143 (Permanent): Offers permanent residency to those who have already held the temporary visa and wish to stay in Australia indefinitely.
  • Eligibility:

    • Must be the parent of an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen.
    • Meet health and character requirements.
    • Meet Balance of Family Test.
    • Have an Australian sponsor who meets income requirements.
  • Cost Estimate:

    Varies based on the number of applicants and specific circumstances, including additional costs for health checks, police certificates, and biometrics.

  • Processing Times:

    • Subclass 173: Up to 12 years subject capping and queueing
    • Subclass 143: Processing begins after the temporary visa and may vary due to application volume and individual circumstances. For holders of a Subclass 173, it can be fairly quick, however for those who apply directly to the permanent stage, it can take up to 12 years subject capping and queueing.

I just want to take the time to thank the legend Ahmad Shady who went above and beyond for me. He completely took the stress out of a super complex situation and streamlined all the documentation needed so I could be more present with my newborn daughter in Texas. He quickly transitioned from my migration agent to a good friend and I’m forever grateful for his kindness and support during those tough times. 🙏

'I want to thank Redd and Nutchaya for accepting my immigration matter and making impossible, possible. Nutchaya and Redd paid attention to the details as a result they were able to reverse the adverse decision from the Department of Home and Affairs and won the case in AAT. The submission to AAT was very details and well written. They are very honest and told me how difficult my case was, but they tried their best to fight for me. I appreciate their effort and care throughout the process. I highly recommend them as immigration lawyers.'
