Retirement Visas

Mature Couple

The Retirement visa (subclass 410) is for retirees and their partners (if any) who want to spend some of their retirement years in Australia.

The Retirement visa (subclass 410) is designed for retirees and their partners (if any) who want to spend some of their retirement years in Australia.

This visa is not available to new or first-time visa applicants other than partners of existing Retirement visa holders, former Retirement visa holders who have not held another substantive visa since last entering Australia. New or first time applicants considering spending a period of their retirement in Australia might be eligible to apply for the Investor Retirement visa (subclass 405).

Former Retirement visa (subclass 410) holders and their partners who have been granted any other substantive visa, including Visitor visas and Electronic Travel Authorities, are not able to reapply for this visa.

Since 1 July 2009, Retirement visa holders have been able to apply for a visa which is valid for 10 years from the date of grant and does not have any restrictions on the hours they are able to work.

You can apply for this visa whether you are in or outside Australia:

  • If you apply for this visa in Australia, you must be in Australia when the visa is granted.
  • If you apply for this visa outside Australia, you must be outside Australia when the visa is granted.

You might be eligible to apply for this visa while you are in Australia or overseas if you are:

  • an existing Retirement visa (subclass 410) holder
  • a former Retirement visa (subclass 410) holder who has not held another substantive visa since last entering Australia
  • the partner of an existing Retirement visa holder or of a former Retirement visa holder who has not held another substantive visa since last entering Australia.
