Take your family members to Australia

25 May 2015 by News Desk

family01There are a number of ways to bring your family members to Australia to live.

You can sponsor a family member under the family stream migration program. You can add a family member to your own visa application when you apply to live in Australia. Your family member can apply to come to Australia as a refugee under its humanitarian program. Your family member can apply for an Australian visa in their own right.

Taking a child to Australia on a Visitor visa

When deciding whether an applicant intends a genuine visit to Australia, decision makers take into account the applicant’s personal circumstances, incentive to return home, financial situation and ability to support themselves while in Australia.

The likelihood of an applicant seeking to remain in Australia is also assessed. Visitor visas might be subject to extra conditions, including a no further stay condition, to prevent the visa holder from applying for another visa to remain in Australia.
