The Family Visit Visa - Sponsored Stream Australia Requirements

The family sponsored visitor visa Australia allows for the individual to come to Australia to visit their family members. The requirements for the family visit visa Australia include:

  • Travelling to Australia for a period of less than 12 months.
  • Not conducting work while in Australia.
  • You may be permitted to study for a period of less than three months however if this is your main reason for travelling to Australia, however there may be a more appropriate visa for you.
  • You are a genuine temporary entrant.

This visa is available for up to a 12 month stay and cannot be extended. The department determines the length of this visa by assessing the length of stay you are intending to make and the reasons for your travel to Australia. The family visit visa is generally granted as a one entry only visa.

The main consideration of the Department is known as the ‘genuine temporary entrant’ (GTE) criteria. In simple terms the Department must be satisfied that you intend to travel to Australia purely temporarily and have incentives to depart Australia and abide by your conditions that are imposed on your visa.

The family sponsored visa also is granted with a mandatory ‘8503’ condition which means no further visa applications can be made unless the 8503 condition is waived.
