So how do you apply for your dependent family members to join you for this family sponsorship in Australia?
Your eligible family members can:
- Go with you to Australia, as long as you have included them in your application
- Join you in Australia after you have been granted your visa as a future arrival. You must have declared these family members in your initial student visa application.
Please make sure you declare ALL family members on your student visa application, even if they aren’t currently planning on traveling with you to Australia. If you do not put them on your application, they will not be eligible to join you in Australia on a student visa. There is one exception to this, if they became your family member after your student visa was granted and before a subsequent application is done.
