Statement of Compatibility with Human Rights

Prepared in accordance with Part 3 of the Human Rights (Parliamentary Scrutiny) Act 2011

Migration (LIN 19/147: Arrangements for Sponsorship for Temporary Sponsored Parent Visa) Instrument 2019

This disallowable legislative instrument is compatible with the human rights and freedoms recognised or declared in the international instruments listed in section 3 of the Human Rights (Parliamentary Scrutiny) Act 2011.

Overview of the Disallowable Legislative Instrument

This legislative instrument specifies the correct form and fee for the application for approval as a family sponsor in the parent sponsor class.

The new instrument making power is provided by the Migration Amendment (Temporary Sponsored Parent Visa and Other Measures) Regulations 2019, which requires approval of sponsorship before a valid visa application for a Sponsored Parent (Temporary) (Subclass 870) visa can be made.

This disallowable legislative instrument stipulates the arrangements for lodging a valid application for approval as a family sponsor by specifying the correct application form and fee for the purposes of paragraphs 2.61A(3)(b) and (c).

Human rights implications

This disallowable legislative instrument does not engage human rights as it is a technical measure to support sponsorship applications relating to the new Subclass 870 visa.  The human rights engaged by the introduction of that visa subclass are discussed in the Statement of Compatibility with Human Rights for the Migration Amendment (Temporary Sponsored Parent Visa and Other Measures) Regulations 2019.

Conclusion

This disallowable legislative instrument does not engage human rights.
