The Department of Home Affairs note that New Parent and Aged Parent visa applications lodged that meet the criteria to be queued are likely to take at least 30 years for final processing.

If you’re a fan of coffee, culture and incredible food, you’ll love the Victorian capital, Melbourne. A major reason to move to Melbourne is that Melbourne is one of the most liveable cities in the world. Melbourne also has some of the highest internationally ranked Universities if you are looking to study. Melbourne's multicultural society also cannot be beaten if you are looking to find a home away from home or to get to know other cultures.

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.

It takes several weeks to several months to process an application for the Temporary Parent Visa 870. According to the Immigration Authorities, most visas are processed within 53 days, but some may take up to 69 days or longer as well.
