visa may be cancelled at a later date.
Integrity of application
The Department is committed to maintaining the integrity of
the visa and citizenship programmes. In relation to this
application, if you or a member of your family unit:
provide, or have provided in a previous application,
fraudulent documents or false or misleading information
(knowingly or not); and/or
fail to satisfy, or have failed to satisfy in a previous
application, the Minister of your or their identity;
this visa application may be refused and you, and any
members of your family unit, may become unable to be
granted a visa for specified periods of time, as set out in
migration legislation.
If documents are found to be fraudulent or information to be
incorrect after the grant of a visa, the visa may subsequently
be cancelled.
Visa validity
This visa generally allows stays of up to 3 months in Australia,
although a stay of up to 12 months can be granted. However,
the visa period is determined on a case by case basis and may
be less than the period you requested.
Conditions for a Visitor visa – Sponsored Family stream
Visitors to Australia must be willing and able to abide by the
conditions listed below while in Australia. If you are unwilling
or unable to abide by these conditions you should not apply
for a visa. If you do not abide by these conditions, your visa
may be cancelled or you may be subject to other penalties. If
you have any questions or concerns about the conditions, you
should ask for more information from an Australian Visa Office
or office of the Department in Australia.
If you are granted a visa, carefully check the details and
conditions on the letter advising you of the grant of your visa.
If you have any concerns or questions about the requirements
or limitations, you should contact the office that granted that
visa. You should not assume that any changes to your
immigration status can be made while in Australia.
Visa conditions
Visa condition 8101
You must NOT work in Australia.
Visa condition 8201
You must NOT study for more than 3 months while in
Australia
Visa condition 8503
No further stay.
The effect of the 8503 ‘No Further Stay’ condition is that it will
not be possible for you to apply to remain in Australia beyond
the authorised period of stay of your visa. It is particularly
important, if your visit to Australia is to attend a specific event,
that you organise your travel so that you can attend these
events within your authorised period of stay as you will not be
able to extend your period of stay in Australia.
Visa condition 8531
You must NOT stay in Australia after your visa expires.
Visa condition 8602
You must NOT have an outstanding public health debt.

Who cannot be a sponsor?
There are no provisions for fiancé(e)s, cousins, friends, in-laws
or New Zealand citizens to sponsor.
If your sponsor has already provided sponsorship for another
relative, and that other relative has been granted a Visitor visa
– Sponsored Family stream (subclass 600), and that visa is still
in effect, then your sponsor will not normally be eligible to
sponsor you until the other relative has departed Australia and
complied with all visa conditions, or until their visa has
expired.
If your sponsor has already provided a sponsorship for
another relative, and that other relative has breached a
condition of that visa, for example, they did not depart
Australia before the expiry of their visa, then your sponsor will
not be eligible to provide further sponsorship in this visa class
for a period of 5 years.
The only exception is where the visa condition that the other
relative breached was condition 8531 (must leave before visa
expiry) and your sponsor is able to satisfy the Department that
they breached this condition due to circumstances that:
were beyond the visa holder’s control; and
arose after their arrival in Australia.
If your sponsor is found to be not eligible after your visa
application has been lodged, then your application will
normally be refused, on the basis that the sponsorship cannot
be approved.
Security bond
Your sponsor may be asked to arrange for the lodgement of a
security bond in support of your Visitor visa – Sponsored
Family stream application. The amount of the security bond is
determined on a case by case basis by the delegated overseas
officer and is generally between AUD5,000 and AUD15,000 per
person.
It should be noted, however, under the Migration Act 1958
the decision to request a security bond is at the discretion of
the delegated officer. Therefore, depending on the
circumstances of the individual case, the delegated officer may
ask for a security bond of any amount that they see as
appropriate. The purpose of the security bond is to give the
decision-maker assessing your application additional
assurance that you will comply with all visa conditions and
that you will leave Australia on or before the expiry of your
Visitor visa – Sponsored Family stream.
If the delegated officer determines that a security bond needs
to be lodged in support of your application, your sponsor will
be sent details of how and where to lodge the security bond.
The time limit for lodging the security bond is 35 days. Once
the bond has been lodged, the decision-maker will be notified,
and will be able to finalise the processing of your application.
If a security bond is requested and not lodged, your
application will normally be refused.
If a security bond is lodged, and you are granted a Visitor visa
– Sponsored Family stream, and you breach any visa
conditions, in particular if you do not leave Australia
before the expiry of your Visitor visa – Sponsored
Family stream, normally the security bond will be
forfeited.
Sponsor
A sponsored family visitor must have an eligible sponsor who
will guarantee their stay and lawful departure from Australia
and who may be requested to arrange for the lodgement of a
security bond.
To avoid your sponsor incurring penalties, you MUST leave
Australia before the expiry of you Visitor visa – Sponsored
Family stream.
If for ANY reason you do not depart before your
Visitor visa – Sponsored Family stream expires, or if
you breach any of the conditions on your Visitor visa –
Sponsored Family stream, penalties will be imposed
upon your sponsor. Any security bond lodged to
support your Visitor visa – Sponsored Family stream
application will normally be forfeited.
If you request a waiver of the 8503 ‘No Further Stay’ condition
and this results in your remaining in Australia after your Visitor
visa – Sponsored Family stream expires, you will still be taken
to have breached the 8531 ‘Must leave before visa expiry
condition, and the penalties will be imposed upon your
sponsor, even if the 8503 is waived and a further visa is
granted. Any security bond lodged to support your Visitor visa
– Sponsored Family stream application will normally be
forfeited.
Who can be a sponsor?
In all cases, your sponsor must be an Australian citizen or
permanent resident aged 18 years or over and settled in
Australia for a reasonable period (usually 2 years).
Your sponsor must be one of the following:
a relative (parent, child, partner, brother, sister,
grandparent, grandchild, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, or
‘step’ equivalent of any of these);
a relative of a member of your family unit who is also
applying for a Visitor visa – Sponsored Family stream;
a member of an Australian parliament (Commonwealth,
state or territory);
an authorised person representing a Commonwealth, state
or territory government Department or instrumentality; or
a local government mayor.
If you and the other members of your family unit are applying
for Visitor visas – Sponsored Family stream with the same
sponsor, your sponsor MUST lodge all application forms, and
the sponsorship form 1149 Application for sponsorship for
sponsored family visitors in Australia at the same time.
Partner’ means your spouse or de facto partner (including
same-sex partners).

Migration agents in Australia
Migration agents in Australia must be registered with the
Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (Office of
the MARA) unless they are exempt from registration.
Migration agents outside Australia
Migration agents who operate outside Australia do not have to
be registered. The Department may give some overseas agents
an ID number. This number does not mean that they are
registered.
Note: Some Australian registered migration agents operate
overseas.
Migration agent information
A migration agent is someone who can:
advise you on the visa that may best suit you;
tell you the documents you need to submit with your
application;
help you fill in the application and submit it; and
communicate with the Department on your behalf.
If you appoint a migration agent, the Department will assume
that your migration agent will be your authorised recipient,
unless you indicate otherwise.
Your migration agent will be the person with whom the
Department will discuss your application and from whom it
will seek further information when required.
You are not required to use a migration agent. However, if you
use a migration agent, the Department encourages you to use
a registered migration agent. Registered agents are bound by
the Migration Agents Code of Conduct, which requires them
to act professionally in their clients’ lawful best interests.
Information on migration agents, including a list of registered
migration agents, is available on the Office of the MARA
website www.mara.gov.au
