About This Visa
The Remaining Relative visa (subclass 835) is a permanent visa for people who want to live in Australia to be with their only near relatives.
Your application must be made in Australia and you must be in Australia at that time.
You must be in Australia when the visa is granted.
What This Visa Lets You Do
This is a permanent visa. It allows you and your family to:
- stay in Australia indefinitely as an Australian permanent resident
- apply for Australian citizenship (if you are eligible)
- travel to and from Australia as a permanent resident for five years from the date the visa is granted – after that time you will need to apply for another visa if you want to return to Australia.
