FAMILY-SPONSORED VISA

The family-sponsored stream requires applicants to be sponsored by a family member who is an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

It has more restrictive visa conditions than the Tourist stream. In some cases, a security bond may be requested. If you are planning to visit family, you can apply for the Tourist stream that does not require sponsorship or a bond.
