We understand life circumstances can separate you from being with your child here in Australia. Thankfully, Child Visa options enable parents to sponsor their children and be reunited with their family. Australia is a great place to raise a family and is full of opportunities for children to learn and grow.
You may be able to sponsor your child to live in Australia if you are an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand Citizen. The child must be your biological child, adopted child or step child. It may also be possible to sponsor a child if you are the spouse or de facto partner of their parent.
Child Visa sponsors must be able to financially support the child. They will also need to meet character requirements to show they do not have a history of domestic or family violence. Several visa conditions and obligations also apply in cases where the child’s parent holds or is applying for an Australian Partner Visa.
A child’s eligibility for a Child Visa depends on several factors including:
There are several visa options available to children in Australia. Our team of Registered Migration Agents can advise on a child’s eligibility for an onshore or offshore Child Visa, a Dependent Child Visa, an Adoption Visa, a New Zealand Citizen Family Relationship Visa or a Remaining Relative Visa amongst other options depending on your circumstances.
