Sponsored Family Stream of the 600 Visa – How do I apply? 

Sponsored Family Stream of the 600 Visa – How do I apply?

To make the application as simple as possible, your prospective overseas visitor(s) should follow the below steps as suggested by the Department of Home Affairs:

⭐️Organise health examinations before applying for the visa

⭐️Fill out the application form. A migration agent isn’t necessarily required, but can be accessed – see the Migration Agents Registration Authority: https://www.mara.gov.au/

⭐️Prepare documents for the visa application which will need to be certified documents like passports and marriage certificates. Police certificates will need to be the original copy. Other documents may include bank statements and the sponsor’s letter of invitation to visit Australia. Your sponsored family member may also need to provide documents stating that they intend to return home, such as employer letters and proof of assets in their home country. All non-English documents will need to be translated in English

⭐️Apply for the visa – either online or on paper. The information supplied will need to be accurate, and the relevant visa application charge needs to be paid. Your prospective family member should refer to the visa application checklists to ensure the application is complete.

⭐️Your family member must be outside of Australia throughout the application process, and cannot enter Australia until this visa is approved.

Otherwise, if the Sponsored family stream is not suitable for your family member, they may be eligible to visit Australia via the Tourist Stream of the 600 visa, which allows stays of 3, 6 or 12 months.

I trust Allianz Care since it is one of the largest insurance companies in Australia, with the medical centres where I only have to pay for what is left from insurance support. (no need to claim later). Besides, those centres are located at the centre of the city, close to schools. Very convenient, right? Credits to Allianz Care for providing reliable medical centres for health check and treatments.

I’ve been living with homestay family for 2 years. I’m now 19, I can move out but I don’t want to leave my host, who has become my family. It feels like I’ve met my second family. Thanks OSHCstudents for sending me to this homestay!

I realised how important insurance was when I started living in Australia. There I switched to using Allianz Care instead of the previous service. Allianz Care is extraordinarily good in its consulting service and customer care. I’ve learned a lot about Australian health care, also I was consulted with mental issues and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I am very happy now.

Thanks to Allianz Care, every time I claimed my medical receipts it processed much more quickly and easily than I expected. I was initially a bit concerned since Allianz Care is more expensive than other insurance companies, but now I can ensure that it is totally worth the money.
