However, the immigration department has not clarified the income requirement for second 5-year.

As per SBS News, the application fee for a 3-year Parent Visa is $5,000 and the sponsorship fee is $420. The income requirement of $83,454.80 can also be shown as a joint family income.

Though, not everyone is happy with the new income requirement for Australia Parent Visa. Many migrants believe that the New Parent Visa already has many attached conditions. These conditions are far more inflexible than a Normal Australia Visitor Visa. Additionally, the Australian Government has made it mandatory to purchase health insurance to apply. The high price of New Australia Parent Visa is discriminating for many migrants. Well, The Immigration Minister has stood in defence of the new parent visa saying its price is “reasonable”.
