Who is eligible for a sponsored family visitor visa?
Are you an applicant for a visitor visa to Australia? If your intention is to visit an Australian Citizen or Australian Permanent Resident who is at least 18 years old and he or she is “family” this visa may be preferable for you – instars instead of the normal visitor visa. Why? Appeal rights! That’s why. And having an onsite decision-maker might just change your luck particularly if you have had previous visa refusals.
The family member must either your parent, your spouse, de-facto partner including same-sex partner, your child, or your sibling, a step-child, step-brother or step-sister, grandparent, grandchild, aunt, uncle, niece or nephew, or a step-grandparent, step-grandchild, step-aunt, step-uncle, step-niece or step-nephew. If yes, then a Sponsored Family Stream Visitor visa might be the right one for you.
