Visa holders inviting family members

In order to apply to bring a family member to Australia, it is important to first identify if the visa will be issued on a temporary or permanent basis.

It is also advisable to check whether the individual wants to enter the country once or multiple times, and this will influence the type of visa that can be applied for.

Returning Australian with overseas-born family.

If citizens living abroad wish to bring their non-Australian national family, it may be necessary to apply for citizenship by descent.

You may then be able to apply for a passport on their behalf if the citizenship application is approved.
