Applicants with close relatives in Australia may be eligible for a visa within the FAMILY group:
- Parent Visa
- Partner Visa
- Aged Dependent Relative
- Remaining Relative
- Carer Visa
- Child Visa
Where a parent has half or more than half of his/her children residing lawfully and permanently in Australia, s/he may apply for a Parent visa.
The Parent must be sponsored by a child who is a settled Australian permanent resident or citizen.
At present there is a long queue for the grant of a Parent visa.
To obtain priority processing, parents may consider applying in a contributory category in which payment of an additional visa application charge - used to contribute to the cost of service provided to the parent once a resident – will give them prompt access to a residence visa.

Engaged, married, de facto or inter-dependent (same sex) partners of Australian permanent residents or citizens may be eligible to apply for a Partner visa for Australia.
The Department of Immigration will consider the genuine nature of the relationship and the intentions of the parties to reside together as partners on a long term basis.
Applicants will initially obtain a provisional visa for two years and, upon provision of evidence that the relationship is continuing at the end of that period and that the couple have physically lived together for at least 12 months, may be eligible for permanent residence.
With many years of experience, Aspire Australia can help design a strategy to bring your partner to Australia as quickly as possible.

Aged Dependent Relative Visa
Single, widowed, divorced or formally separated relatives of an Australian permanent resident or citizen, who have been depending upon the Australia relative for a reasonable period, may be eligible for the Aged Dependent Relative visa.
Males must be at least 65 years and females at least 60 years.
Evidence of dependence for the basic necessities of food, clothing and shelter over a three to five year period must be provided.

Remaining Relative Visa
Are you the only member of your direct family who is not yet living in Australia?
You may be eligible for a Remaining Relative visa.
If you and your spouse have no relatives other than those in Australia, one of your Australian relatives (parent or sibling) may be eligible to sponsor you.
Contact us to discuss your eligibility.
Where an Australian family member has a physical impairment and has a need for assistance in attending to the practical aspects of daily life, they may sponsor a relative to come to Australia to assist them on a long term basis.
The Australian relative will need to show that no other Australian person can provide the care necessary.
Contact Aspire Australia to confidentially discuss your situation and let us advise you whether you can bring a relative to Australia to help you.
A dependent child, whether natural or adopted, may be sponsored for residence by an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
Where a child is born overseas to Australian permanent resident parents, the child will need to apply for a Child visa in order to accompany their parents to Australia to live.
