Visitor visa subclass 600 tourist stream vs family sponsored stream so confusing

Recommended Posts

Hi all, maybe a very stupid question. I am an Australian citizen, my parents want to come and visit me for a while (from China).

 

DIBP's website stated that you can apply visitor visa or the family sponsored visitor visa.

 

What's the difference? My parents intent to stay less than 12 months.

 

Could anyone please tell me the difference and which one would be better? i.e. in terms of difficult of applying and visa conditions.

 

Thank you in advance!

subclass 600 is the one for you! I got my parents on 600 visa for 12 months. If they intend to stay for more than 3 months they need to go through medicals and also maintain appropriate health cover while in Aus.

Kcec826 thank you for the information. But under subclass 600, should I chose tourist or family sponsored? It seems like family sponsored is more complicated? (deposit bonds etc.) But are they have the same visa condition?
