Parents of Australian citizens and permanent residents
From late 2012, parents of Australian citizens and permanent residents could benefit from a tourist visa with longer validity. However, DIBP would consider applications on a case by case basis for the grant of tourist visas with multiple entries:
Valid for 5 years and for stay of up to 12 months on each entry – for those parents who are outside Australia and had applied for a Parent visa.
Valid for 3 years and for stay of up to 12 months on each entry – for other parents who are outside Australia and had not applied for a Parent visa.
