Help Centre what do you need help with?

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

As part of the 2022 application process, we’ll send 23,100 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. 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
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
