This visa allows you and your family to live in Australia as permanent residents.
The following people may be included in your application:
- your partner
- your or your partner's dependent children
- other dependent relatives living with you.
This visa is a permanent residence visa. This visa allows you to travel in and out of Australia for five years from the date the visa is granted. If you wish to continue to travel in and out of Australia as a permanent resident after the initial visa has expired, you must obtain a Resident Return Visa (RRV).

With this visa you are unable to access social security payments.
The Australian Government provides help with medical expenses and hospital care through a scheme called Medicare. As a permanent resident in Australia you may be eligible to enrol in Medicare. You should wait 10 days after you arrive, and then go to a Medicare office with your passport or travel documents.
With this visa you are unable to access family assistance.
A payment called Special Benefit may be available to you if you suffer a substantial change of circumstances beyond your control. Being unemployed, or running out of money will not qualify you for this payment.
