Relative visa options

WHEN MIGHT YOU NEED A RELATIVE VISA?
You will need a relative visa if you want to move to Australia and live here permanently because you are aged and financially dependent on a relative who lives here, or your and your partner’s only remaining relatives live here, and you want to be near them. If you only want to visit Australia for a short or temporary period, you will need a different kind of visa.

ELIGIBILITY FOR RELATIVE VISA OPTIONS:
You may be eligible to apply for a relative visa if you are related to:
An Australian citizen, an Australian permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen
The person you are related to is 18 years of age or older and you should be aware that not many people are eligible for relative visas.

SPONSORS:
You will need to have a sponsor to apply for a relative visa to live in Australia as a permanent resident. A sponsor must be an Australian citizen, or an Australian permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen, be 18 years of age or over, be related to the visa applicant, be lawfully resident in Australia for a reasonable period.
