The Australian citizen/permanent resident can sponsor his/her family member for the visit and immigration visa. Which means that your sponsor will provide a written statement pledging to support you for your first two years in Australia, including accommodation and financial assistance to meet reasonable living needs. Family migration applicants are assessed on an individual basis by the Australian immigration authorities, and are assessed against Australia’s health and character requirements.
