Usually, you would be sponsored by an eligible child. If your child is under 18, you can be sponsored by an eligible relative or community organisation. The sponsorship must be approved by the authorities.
Health and Character Requirements
You and any family members who apply for the visa with you must meet the health and character requirements. We might also ask that other non-migrating family members meet the requirement.
Australian Values Statement
If you are 18 years of age or older, you must read or have explained to you the Life in Australia book, sign an Australian Values Statement that confirms you will respect the Australian way of life and obey Australian laws.
You must meet the balance-of-family test. You meet the balance of the family test if: (1) at least half of your children and stepchildren are eligible children, or (2) there are more eligible children than children living in any other single country.
Best Interests of the Child
Department of Home Affairs will not grant this visa if it is not in the best interests of an applicant under 18.
