Family Sponsored Visa Australia
The Australian government is committed to helping families to reunite. As a result, a large proportion of the visas offered by the Australian Government are allocated to the Family Migration Program and all must be sponsored by an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen. Family sponsored visas are among some of the most popular visa types in Australia.
There are several visa options that fall under this program and the main categories are:
- Parent Visas,
- Partner Visa,
- Child Visas,
- Carer Visas, and
- Remaining Relatives.
Sponsoring a family member to Australia is often more difficult than people expect because there is no statutory right to bring a family member to Australia. Each application to bring a family member or a partner with whom you share a relationship with is unique and requires a case to be developed.
In most cases, you can apply for a temporary visa first, and after receiving it and entering Australia, you can apply for a permanent visa pathway. Most family sponsored visa applications can be lodged in or out of Australia.
At IMMIGATE, we have assisted many migrants in their applications for temporary and permanent visas through the family stream.
