This Visa allows your parents to stay in Australia up to ten years. It is originally issued either for three or five years and your parents can renew the visa again, for another three or five years, for a maximum duration of ten years. 
To extend their stay in Australia for longer than ten years, your parents must apply for another type of visa once this one expires. They cannot extend the 870 Visa.
