Remaining Relative Visa (Subclass) 835

The subclass 835 visa is an onshore visa. If approved, it grants a permanent residency to the applicant who intends to stay in Australia to be with their only remaining relative.

If you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen, usually residing in Australia, your last remaining relative can apply for a remaining relative (subclass 835) visa in Australia. The applicant must be in the country when the application is filed and when the decision is made.

Whyapply for a Remaining Relative Visa 835?

The Subclass 835 visa (remaining relative) allows the visa hold to remain in the country permanently. This visa allows the holder to:

  • Stay and work in the nation for an indefinite period of time.
  • Enroll in the Government’s health care scheme.
  • Study in the country in their respective field of interest.
  • Sponsor other family associates (if eligible) to come to the country.

  • If the application form is not filled or submitted correctly
  • If all the documents needed are not furnished, or the Department seeks more information.
  • If the candidate takes more time providing further information to the Departments as per their requirements.

A permanent visa category is generally more thoroughly assessed by the Department than a temporary visa category.
