How to Apply for Australia Immigration through family sponsorship programs?
Every year, the Australian government sets aside a lot of visa places exclusively for the family members of Australian permanent residents, citizens and eligible New Zealand citizens. This almost represents more than one-third of the total immigration visas issued annually.
Whether you wish to move to or stay in with your partner or family member in Australia on a temporary or permanent basis, you must find the right visa subclass based on your true intentions.
Overview of Australia Family Sponsored Visas
Let's explore the visa options available for joining a partner or family in Australia:
Prospective marriage visa (Subclass 300)
This visa subclass 300 is designed to allow an individual to move to Australia for marrying his/her prospective spouse and accordingly apply for a Partner visa.
To qualify for visa subclass 300, you must be 18 years or older, have a sponsorship and a true intention to marry your prospective spouse before the visa expires.
With this visa, you can live, work or study (at own expenses) in Australia for 9 -15 months from date of visa grant.
Contributory Parents Visa (Subclass 864/143)
The visa subclass 864/143 allows the parents of Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen to live in Australia on a permanent basis.
To qualify for both visa subclass 143 or 864, you must meet Australia's balance-of-family test, have an Assurance of Support and not have already applied for or hold a Sponsored Parent (Temporary) (Subclass 870) visa when applying for any of the visa subclasses.
Partner Visa(Subclass 309/100)- Apply Overseas
Partner visa subclass 309/100 let the spouse or de facto partner of an Australian citizen, PR visa holder or eligible New Zealand citizen apply for Australia immigration from overseas.
You apply for both temporary (subclass 309) as well as permanent (subclass 100) partner visas altogether.
Partner Visa (Subclass 820/801)- Apply Within Australia

You apply for both temporary (subclass 801) as well as permanent (subclass 820) partner visas altogether.
Aged Dependent Relative visa (Subclass 838/114)

However, to apply for subclass 838, you must be inside Australia, but not in immigration clearance and for subclass 114, you must be outside Australia while applying.

Remaining Relative visa (Subclass 835/115)

Orphan Relative visa (subclass 837/117)
