In the busiest week for migration regulations since perhaps 2012, the Subclass 870 – Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa made it one of four new visa subclasses with regulations released earlier this week. With many requirements already known, the regulations shed further light on the criteria to be a parent sponsor, what situations may affect lodging a valid application, and what constitutes an outstanding public health debt. These regulations come into force on 17 April 2019.
