Aged Parent Visa (Subclass) 804

The Subclass 804 visa, or aged parent visa, is structured for those eligible parents of Australian citizens, permanent residents, or New Zealand citizens (if eligible) who wish to stay in Australia permanently.

The Subclass 804 is a permanent visa that generally permits visa holders to enjoy the same benefits and entitlements as a citizen, with only a few minor differences. The subclass 804 visa has the lowest application fee of all the Parent visas; however, processing of subclass 804 visa is a long drawn affair, usually taking up to 13 years to be approved. If an application is made in Australia, the applicant may be able to remain in Australia on a bridging visa during the processing of the visa.

If you are looking to begin your Subclass 84 visa application process, contact the team at E-Help; our migration agents will help you confirm your eligibility to make an application in Australia.

We suggest you book an appointment with our 804 visa consultants to know your eligibility and secure a favorable visa outcome.

How to Apply for a Subclass 804 Visa

Before applying for the subclass 804 visa, the candidate must ensure that they hold a valid passport. If the current visa is lost, or about to expire, we recommend securing a new passport prior to submitting an application.

The application steps are then as follows:

  • Gather all of the relevant documentary evidence in line with the visa conditions. All of these evidence must be collated and analysed alongside the subclass 84 visa requirements. It is imperative that the evidence complements the facts declared in the application.
  • Once the application is complete it can be submitted to the Department alongside the necessary fees. It is crucial that all fees are paid in full to avoid having your application cancelled or delayed.
  • After submitting your application the Department will begin your visa assessment. Once a decision has been made you will be notified by registered post.

Currently, this particular visa category’s processing is up to thirteen years or more as family immigration is comparatively high in demand. Communicate with a professional 804 visa immigration agent at E-Help for further details on the visa processing time and requirements.

The processing time for the (subclass 804) visa varies from individual to individual based on their profile and are subjected to queuing and capping. Furthermore, the processing time of the subclass 804 visa application may be a little higher than usual if –

  • The candidate has not filled it out correctly
  • The candidate has not included all the documents needed
  • The Department need more information
  • The Department needs more time to thoroughly verify the documents

The Department generally asks for additional information both from the candidates and/ or external agencies for the application’s decision. Generally, the verification procedure for a permanent visa is more thorough than a temporary visa category.
