The Morrison Government will introduce a new Temporary Sponsored Parent Visa for parents and grandparents to reunite with their families.
The Senate passed the Migration Amendment (Family Violence and other Measures) Bill 2016 that includes provisions to introduce the new visa allowing parents to visit their families in Australia for a regular period of up to five years.
The Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs David Coleman said the new visa demonstrates the Government’s commitment to migrant communities.
Mr. Coleman added that this new visa will help families reunite and spend time together. Also, it is a great route for parents and grandparents to visit their families in Australia resulting in great social benefits to the Australian community.
Despite opposition from the Labour party that voted against the important legislation, this bill has been passed.
The new Temporary Sponsored Parent Visa will help the families to come together and meanwhile, the government will also ensure that taxpayers are not liable to cover additional costs.
Thus, there are full measures taken by the Australian Government to strengthen the visa framework that requires Australian sponsors to become financial guarantor of their family’s medical cost. The government will work in favour of Australians.
Hence, Minister added, “This new visa will ensure family reunions are possible for many migrant families across Australia, while protecting taxpayers with strict guidelines to ensure all public health debts including hospital and aged care fees are recovered by the Australian Government.”
This new Temporary Sponsored Parent Visa will be open for the applicants to apply in the first half of 2019.
