New Zealand Citizen family relationship visa options

On 2 June 2014 the government introduced significant changes to the Other Family visas.

We no longer accept new applications for the following visas:

  • Parent visa (subclass 103)
  • Aged Parent visa (subclass 804)
  • Remaining Relative visa (subclass 835)
  • Aged Dependent Relative visa (subclass 838)
  • Carer visa (subclass 836)
  • Remaining Relative visa (subclass 115)
  • Aged Dependent Relative visa (subclass 114)
  • Carer visa (subclass 116).

Certain family members (partners, dependent children or dependent relatives) may be able to be added to existing applications for the above listed visas before a decision has been made on the application.

For more information see Closing of Non-Contributory Parent and Other Family visas.

Applicants who were previously eligible for the visas listed above might consider visiting Australia on a non-ongoing short-term basis through Visitor visas.
