Temporary parent visa - Important hurdle is cleared

Recommended Posts

The Migration Amendment (Family Violence and Other Measures) Bill 2016 has at long last had its second reading in the Senate, and was passed this morning.

Some will recall that this is the legislation that the Federal Government considers is required to pass into law before the long awaited temporary parent visa can become available.

We are anticipating the Bill will become law this week, at which point we can reasonably expect the new temporary parent visa pathway will open.

Hopefully this will be prior to the Parliament rising for the Christmas recess.

The legislation as drafted requires the approval of a sponsor before a visa application is lodged.

The Bill now returns to the House of Representatives for a vote.

If the Bill passes the House without any amendments it should receive Royal Assent and become law, after which the drafting of regulations will be necessary to give it practical effect.

Those who are interested in progressing an application for the new temporary parent visa with our help should feel able to send a PM or an email to me - or to any other registered migration agent .who is doing parent visa work.

Best regards.

Thanks for the update @Alan Collett

Some progress is better than no progress 🙂

Be interesting to see the finer details of the temporary parent visa once things become clearer

The Bill referenced above in connection with the introduction of the new temporary parent visa has now passed the House of Reps - so it is all steam ahead ...

Hopefully the regulations will be introduced soon.

Best regards.

Of particular note: "Applications for the Temporary Sponsored Parent visa will open in the first half of 2019."

Best regards.
