I would like to help my family or partner to Australia

My Questions and Issues

I am an Australian citizen or PR – how can I sponsor my family to migrate to Australia?

I am on a temporary visa (Student or TR) – can my partner or children stay with me in Australia?

Visa Types

If you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident (PR), you may be able to sponsor your family (Parents, Partner, Child) to migrate to Australia under the following streams.

Parent Visa

Parent Visa enables parents of children who are Australian citizens or permanent residents to be sponsored for permanent residence in Australia.

Partner Visa

Partner visas are for people who are married or in a  defacto relationship  with an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible NZ citizen. This leads to permanent residence, usually over a period of 2 years.

Child Visa

Child visa allows a child of sponsoring parent, who is an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen, to migrate to Australia to live with their parents.

If you are holding a temporary visa (eg. Student visa, graduate 485 visa, etc), your partner and child can join you into your visa as well.

Student/Guardian Visa

Your partner and child can join into your student visa with the same visa duration and similar visa conditions. Your partner can work up to 40 hours fortnightly. If you are studying Master degree or above, your partner can work full-time in Australia. Your school age children can study in a local primary or secondary school.
