Assurance of Support

An Assurance of Support is a legal commitment by a sponsor to provide financial support to the applicant so they do not have to rely on government assistance. It is required for you and any family members who come to Australia with you on this visa. This assurance ensures that newcomers can sustain themselves financially and contribute positively to the Australian community.

Balance-of-Family Test

The balance-of-family test ensures that at least half of your children and step-children live permanently in Australia, or that more of your children live in Australia than in any other country. This test assesses the extent of your connections with Australia through your family.

Benefits of Subclass 864 Visa

With the Subclass 864 visa, aged parents can permanently live, work and study in Australia, have access to Medicare, social security benefits, and eventually be eligible for Australian citizenship.
