I have not been in contact with one of my parents for over 30 years. Can I still apply for a last remaining relative visa?

You can apply and the Department of Immigration and Citizenship will accept your application fee, however you will not meet the requirements for this visa.

If you can’t provide a death certificate or evidence that this parent is residing in Australia, your application will be refused.


Do I have to include mine and/or my partner’s children from a previous relationship in my parent visa?

Yes, all yours and your partner’s children count in the balance of family test for your parent visa.


Do all mine and my partner’s children have to live in Australia for us to qualify for a parent visa?

No, you only have to have equal to or more children living in Australia, either as permanent residents or Australian citizens to meet the requirements for your parent visa.
