Australia has visas specifically designed to allow children, parents, partners and other relatives to live in Australia with their loved ones. Our team know exactly what you need to be reunited with your family and will make your visa application process straightforward and stress free.
If you are in a genuine and continuing relationship with an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident, you may be eligible for a Partner visa. Married, engaged or de facto partners can apply – this includes same-sex couples.
The success of your partner visa is dependent upon the quality of evidence you have to prove the genuine nature of your relationship. This will be considered carefully by Australian Immigration and must include:
Partners are usually granted a provisional visa first and can apply after the initial application has been lodged. If you are in a long term relationship, you can get permanent residency approval if you can show evidence of the genuine and continuing nature of your relationship.

The Prospective Marriage Visa allows you to travel to Australia for nine months to marry your Australian partner. To complete a successful application you must show evidence that you have met physically and have booked your marriage ceremony. Applications must be lodged while outside of Australia.
Once you are married you can then apply for the Partner visa outlined above.
Parents of an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen can obtain permanent residency in Australia through a Parent Visa. To be eligible for this visa the child sponsoring you must be settled in Australia for at least two years. You will also need to pass the ‘balance of family test’ – at least half of your children live permanently in Australia or more of your children live permanently in Australia than in any other country.
There are four different types of Parent visas:
Children can settle permanently in Australia with a sponsoring parent who is an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible NZ Citizen. The child must be younger than 18 or still dependent on their parents.

The Carer visa allows you to settle in Australia to care for a relative with a long-term or permanent medical condition. You must demonstrate that there is no one else in Australia who can provide the care and the relative requiring care will need to be assessed Bupa Medical Visa Services.
