CURRENT TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS
If you held a Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa (subclass 870) (SPTV) and were outside Australia on 1 July 2021, your visa period has been automatically extended by 18 months.
This concession aims to assist SPTV holders who could not spend the full 3 or 5 years on their visa in Australia due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
If your visa was extended under this concession, the additional 18 months will not count toward your cumulative 10 year maximum stay period.
Sponsorship obligations for SPTV Sponsors have also been extended for the same 18 month period.
You can check your visa details and conditions using VEVO.
