Contributory Aged Parent Visa Temporary (Subclass 884) Brief Overview

If you are a settled Australian citizen, an Australian permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen and have parents in their pension age, now they can apply Contributory Aged Parent Visa (Subclass 884) to stay temporarily in Australia.

With this temporary visa, they can apply for a Contributory Aged Parent (subclass 864) visa for permanent residency, so that’s why they cannot stay longer by extending this temporary visa.
