A Family Sponsored Visa – Basic Requirements

  • Meet health and character requirements: You are responsible for all your health costs while in Australia. You will not be covered by Australia’s national health scheme (Medicare) unless your country has a reciprocal health care agreement with Australia. Therefore, it is advisable to obtain health insurance each time you travel to Australia.
  • Must have sufficient funds to support yourself during your stay in Australia.
  • Must intend to undertake activities in the Sponsored Family stream.

You must demonstrate to the Immigration Department that:

  • You are a genuine traveler heading to Australia.
  • You will visit your family.
  • You are sponsored by an eligible relative or an Australian government official.


Details on Family Sponsored Visa

If you’re planning a trip to Australia to visit family, the Sponsored Family stream is designed for you. You’ll need a sponsor, who may be required to post a bond.

It’s necessary to apply for this visa outside Australia and you must also be outside Australia when the visa is granted.

If you already have a Sponsored Family Visitor visa (subclass 679), it remains valid for its original duration.
