If you plan to marry, are married to, or are in a committed relationship with an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen, you may be able to obtain a partner-based visa for immigration to Australia. The Australian citizen/permanent resident will act as a sponsor for your visa.
Do you want to be closer to your children living in Australia? Applicants for a visa in the Parent category must be sponsored. If you are the parent of an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen, you may be able to qualify for this type of visa and if your child is willing and able to sponsor you.
The child visa pathway allows Australian parents to sponsor their children to join them in Australia.
