Do you want a family visa for Australia?

  • Sharebar

If you are looking for a family relationship visa or a spouse visa for Australia, there are a number of options available to you.
One option may be the parent visa category. There are various options (subclasses) of the parent visas.

Some examples of the various ‘onshore’ parent visas include:

  • Aged Parent (Residence) visa Subclass 804. This is for parents who are in Australia and of retirement age and who want to remain in the country with their children.
  • Contributory Aged Parent (Residence) visa Subclass 864. If you want to have your visa processed more quickly, this could be an option for you. However, it is more expensive than the non-contributory category.

If the parents are outside of Australia, options available include:

  • Parent (Migrant) visa (subclass 103). This is a visa suitable for parents whose children are already living in Australia. However there is a very long waiting period for this visa.
  • Contributory Parent (Migrant) visa (subclass 143). This visa is more expensive than the non-contributory category but processes much more quickly.

If family members can benefit from the family relationship visa, people are who married, engaged, or are in a de facto relationship with an Australian citizen may also be able to apply for a partner visa.

There are many requirements you must satisfy to apply for a partner visa or a spouse visa for Australia. Some of these include:

  • You have to be both of ‘marriageable age’;
  • If you are already married, then the marriage should be recognized in your country of marriage as well as in Australia;
  • If you are not yet married, you must be in a de facto relationship which already includes same sex couples. For this you must normally have:
  1. Committed to living a life together as partners;
  2. Lived together for at least 12 months before the application for the visa is made.

Only genuine relationships are accepted and considered for partner visas. Therefore, you have to have appropriate evidence to demonstrate that your relationship is genuine, continuing and ongoing.

Applying for the family relationship visa and the spouse visa for Australia can be confusing. This is an important life decision that you don’t want to get wrong. You should consider seeking the assistance of National Visas’ professional migration advisers to make sure that your opportunity to live with your family member has the best possibility of success.
