Bringing Children To Australia

Sponsoring a Child

There are two main visas for children. One is applicable if the child is offshore (101), while the (102) is for those onshore. Ultimately, they both do the same job. The qualifying criteria and the application process are equally similar. While a child must be single, they can include their own dependants in their visa application.

Educational costs:

Several temporary visa classes which lead to permanent residency may require the parents to make a contribution towards the child’s educational costs until they receive permanent residency. The financial contribution will be determined by the local education authority within the state in which the child resides.

To be eligible:

Younger than 18 years of age, or;

A full-time student between 18 and 25 years of age, or

18 or older and unable to work due to a disability and dependent on the sponsoring parents.
