Parent of a Child Student Visa

You can extend for 12 months your visa after expiry of this visa. This visa is for parent of child students who are below the age of 12 years. So when the child is approaching 12 years in the next 12 months, shorter visa is granted instead of 6 months or 12 months. You can bring other family members with you but they need to make separate application.
