What is Included in Family Category Visa?

These are the several categories of family visas that you can apply for as per your eligibility:

Family-sponsored Visa (subclass 491 & 600): Eligible applicants can apply for a family-sponsored visa to visit their family members in Australia. The 600 subcategory is for the short term for a period of up to 12 months. This is a no-work visa and you must leave before the expiration of the visa. The Family-Sponsored visa Subclass 491 allows an applicant to live, study and work in a designated area of the territory of Australia. The 491 family-sponsored visa requirements are that the applicant must be under 45 years of age, should meet the language criteria, must have an eligible relative living in the designated area, and must have the relevant skills as per the skill list.

Partner Visa (subclass 820 & 801): This visa allows the de-facto partner or spouse of an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen to come and live with their partner in Australia. You need to apply for a Partner Visa Subclass 820 before applying for a permanent residency through Partner Visa Subclass 801. It allows you to live, study, and work in Australia, attend up to 510 hours of free English classes, and also enroll in the public health care system. The Partner Visa Subclass 801 is a permanent category of visa that allows you to live in Australia permanently and apply for Australian citizenship in due course. To apply for this category of visa, you should be in a permanent relationship with an Australian citizen or permanent resident and be a holder of a temporary partner visa.

Prospective marriage visa (subclass 300): This visa helps the applicant to come to Australia to marry their prospective spouse. To apply for this visa, you should be outside Australia at the time of applying. This visa allows you to stay in Australia for 9-15 months. You should marry your prospective spouse before the end of the visa term. This visa also allows you to work in Australia and study at your expense during the duration of the visa. You must not enter Australia before the main visa holder and must not marry or enter a de-facto relationship before you come to Australia.

Visitor visa (subclass 600) (Family Sponsored Stream): The parent visitor visa subclass 600 allows the parent of an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen to visit and live in Australia for a short period. This is a visitor visa that helps the parents visit and live with their children and grandchildren in Australia. This can be applied for 3, 6 or 12 months.

Parent migrant visa (subclass 103): This is a long stay category of visa that allows the parents of the eligible Australian citizen or permanent resident to live with their children for a longer duration. The parents need to pass the ‘balance of family test’ which means that the majority of their children should be living in Australia. There is a long waitlist of up to 30 years for this category of visa and there is a cap on the number of visas that are issued for this type. The Australian family visa processing time depends on various factors, such as the pending application queue, completeness of the application and quick response to any query of the immigration department. It is thus essential to take the consultancy services of a knowledgeable immigration agent for your visa application.
