Other Family Visas

Australia's Family Migration program has the following two visa pathways for relatives:




Carer Visa


This visa lets you stay in Australia to provide care to someone with a permanent medical condition who does not have reasonable access to care options in Australia. The person you care for must be your relative, or your relative's family member who lives with them.

Eligibility is dependent on a number of different factors including:

• The medical condition of the person in need of care

• Whether the person in need of care is an Australian citizen or permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen

• Whether there are any other relatives in Australia who can provide the required care or whether the person in need is able to access health services in Australia for the level of care they require

• Whether you meet the health and character requirements

It’s important to know the Australian Government caps the number of Carer Visas granted each year, which means that there are very long processing times for this visa.




Remaining Relative Visa


This permanent visa lets people live in Australia to be with their remaining near family members who are either Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or eligible New Zealand citizens.

Eligibility is dependent on a number of different factors including:

• Whether you have you or your partner have a near relative who usually live outside Australia

• Whether you have an eligible sponsor

• The level of family support, accommodation and financial assistance your sponsor is able to provide you for at least your first two years in Australia

• Whether you and your family members meet the health and character requirements

It’s important to know the Australian Government caps> the number of Remaining Relative Visas granted each year, resulting in very lengthy processing times for this visa.
