Eligibility

Who might be eligible for this visa?

  • The child must meet the following criteria in order to obtain this visa:
  • Sponsored by their parent(s) or parent(spartner(s) )’s
  • Single
  • If you’re under the age of eighteen, or if you’re:
  • A full-time student between the ages of 18 and 25, or
  • 18 years of age or older, unable to work owing to a disability, and financially reliant on the sponsoring parent.

This application can cover the child’s own dependent children.

The parent who is sponsoring

The child’s sponsoring parent must be an Australian citizen, a permanent resident of Australia, or a citizen of New Zealand who meets the criteria. The child’s parent’s spouse or de facto partner can also sponsor the child.

Relationship between the sponsor and the child

The child must be able to:

  • The supporting parent’s biological kid or adopted child
  • A stepchild under the age of 18 who lives with a stepparent who is no longer the kid’s parent’s partner but has legal responsibility for the child.

Adopted children must have been adopted before their parents became Australian citizens, permanent residents in Australia, or eligible New Zealand citizens.

In the child’s best interests

If it is in the best interests of a child under the age of 18, this visa will likely not be granted.

Age

The child must be under the age of 25, but if 18 or older, they must be enrolled full-time in school and financially dependent on their sponsoring parent. The age limit and full-time student requirement are only waived if the child has a disability that prevents them from working.

Health

Certain health requirements must be met by the youngster. The outcomes are usually good for a year. This also applies to any family members who are included in your application, whether or not they are relocating.

Character

A child must meet specific character requirements if he or she is over the age of 16. They must be able to show a police certificate from any nation where they lived for 12 months or longer in the previous ten years after turning 16. Do not obtain police certificates until we request them.

This applies to you and all family members indicated in your application, whether or not they are relocating.

Government of Australia debts

The child must have no outstanding debts to the Australian government or have made arrangements to pay off any outstanding debts.

The visa

In relation to this visa

A Child visa (subclass 101) allows a qualified parent to sponsor their child’s indefinite stay in Australia. A parent may apply on behalf of a kid under the age of eighteen.

A parent who qualifies is:

  • a citizen of Australia
  • a permanent residence visa holder in Australia
  • a permanent residence visa holder in Australia
  • a citizen of New Zealand who qualifies

What the youngster is capable of

It allows the child to:

  • travel to and stay in Australia indefinitely
  • work and study in Australia
  • enrol in Medicare, Australia’s scheme for health-related care and expenses
  • apply for Australian citizenship (if they are eligible)
  • sponsor eligible relatives for permanent residence
  • travel to and from Australia for five years from the date the visa is granted – after that time they will need another visa to enter Australia.

It gives the youngster the ability to:

  • Indefinite travel to and stay in Australia
  • In Australia, you can work and study.
  • Enroll in Medicare, Australia’s health-care and expense-reimbursement program.
  • seek for citizenship in Australia (if they are eligible)
  • Relatives who are eligible for permanent residency can be sponsored.
  • They can travel to and from Australia for five years from the date the visa is issued; after that, they will need a new visa to enter the country

Other expenses

Location

When the application is filed and when it is decided, the kid must be outside of Australia.

 

How long will your visa be valid?

Family

It’s possible that you’ll be able to include your child in your visa application.

Any minors included in the visa application must meet the rules for family members.

Documentary evidence of their relationship to you must be included in the application.

Children who are part of your family unit must be able to demonstrate that they are healthy and have good character.

Each of your siblings will have to submit their own application.

 

Obligations of the child

All Australian regulations and visa conditions must be followed by the youngster. This includes the following:

  • arriving in Australia by a certain date
  • not marrying or entering into a de facto relationship before coming to Australia
  • If your circumstances change in a way that could affect the kid’s visa eligibility or your ability to sponsor the child, you must notify us in writing.

 

SPONSORS

Who is eligible to sponsor a child?

To sponsor a kid for this visa, you must meet the following criteria:

  • the child’s parent (or their partner) or step-parent
  • older than the age of eighteen
  • You must also be one of the following:
  • a citizen of Australia
  • a permanent residence visa holder in Australia
  • a citizen of New Zealand who qualifies
  • If you are one of the following people, you can sponsor a child:
  • a step-parent who is no longer the child’s parent’s partner but who has a legal responsibility to care for the child and who is under the age of 18
  • an eligible New Zealand citizen, an adoptive parent who adopted the kid before you became an Australian citizen, or an Australian permanent residence visa holder.
  • It is not necessary for you to be in Australia at the time of your application. If you meet the following criteria, you can still be a sponsored parent:
  • You have previously visited Australia but are currently outside the country when you submit your application.
  • You’ve been given an Australian permanent residence visa, but you haven’t yet arrived in the country.
  • You may be entitled to apply for an Adoption visa if your child was adopted after you became an Australian citizen, a holder of an Australian permanent residence visa, or an

Adoption visa (subclass 102).

Parental Responsibility:

  • This visa can only be granted if you can present one of the following documents for a child under the age of 18:
  • You have the written permission of everyone who has the legal authority to decide where the child resides.
  • The child’s native country’s laws allow for his or her removal.
  • It is in line with any child order in Australia.

Under the Follow these steps page, you’ll see a list of the papers you’ll need to provide with your application to substantiate this claim.

Character

Certain character requirements must be met. After you turn 16, you must be able to show a police certificate from each nation where you lived for 12 months or longer in the previous ten years. Do not obtain police certificates until we request them.

Assurance of assistance

We can seek for a guarantee of support for the child so that the Australian community is not burdened with the costs of some migrants’ welfare.

If we ask for it and tell you what you need to do, don’t give us a promise of assistance.

Sponsorship responsibilities

You must fulfill the following requirements as a sponsor:

  • be liable for the expense of the child living in Australia to the Australian government
  • For the first two years in Australia, give adequate housing and financial support to meet the child’s reasonable living needs.
  • assist the youngster in adjusting to life in Australia
  • Encourage the child to attend any English language classes that are required.

If your circumstances change in a way that could affect the kid’s eligibility for a Child visa or your ability to sponsor the child, you must notify us in writing.
