Orphan Relative visa (subclass 117)

Orphan Relative Visa allows a single child to come to Australia to live with their relative if their parents have passed away, are unable to care for them or cannot be found. This visa would allow the child to stay in Australia as a permanent resident, and the child will be able to work and study in Australia. Bringing the child to Australia must also be in the best interest of the child.

Eligibility criteria:

The sponsor must be an eligible Australian relative, that is the relative must be an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen. To approve the visa application, the case officer would also consider if the sponsor or the sponsor’s partner has been charged with offences relating to children.
Age: The child must be under 18 years old. Meet health and character requirement
Consent: The sponsor must have consented to bring the child over to Australia.
