What sets Australian Migration Agents apart

Family visa options in Australia

Adoption Visa 102

This visa is suited for parents who wish to visit and live in Australia on a temporary basis for 3 to 5 years. In some cases, you may be entitled to reapply for further subclass 870 visas to stay up to 10 years in Australia. Unlike other Parent visas, this visa does not lead to permanent residency, and you cannot apply for another parent visa subclass once you have applied for or hold this visa.

Australian family visa application process

Generally, the process that underlies a family visa application is similar across each visa type. Once applicants have identified what visa they are eligible for, they are required to fill out a visa application form, collect the relevant documents and supporting evidence and pay an application fee.
