How many applications to sponsor parents and grandparents do you accept each year?

As part of the 2023 intake of parent and grandparent applications, we’ll send 24,200 invitations. This will help us reach our goal of accepting up to 15,000 complete applications.

We send as many invitations as we estimate will be needed to reach the application target which is set by the Multi Year Levels Plan. This means we issue more invitations than the application target since not everyone who is invited to apply will actually do so.

Number of invitations sent and the application targets in previous intake years:

Intake Year Invitations Sent Application Target
2022 23,100 15,000
2021 34,500 30,000
2020 13,400 10,000
2019 26,376 20,000
2018 23,500 17,000
2017 16,500 10,000
2016 - 10,000
2015 - 5,000
2014 - 5,000
