1. Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) (subclass 601):

– Passport holder from an eligible country

– Genuine intention to visit Australia for tourism or business purposes

– Sufficient funds to support their stay in Australia

– Meet health and character requirements

– Not have any outstanding debts to the Australian government

– Not have had a visa cancelled or refused in the past

2. eVisitor (subclass 651):

– Genuine intention to visit Australia for tourism or business purposes

3. Visitor visa (subclass 600):

– Genuine intention to visit Australia for tourism, business, or to visit family and friends

– Sufficient funds to support their stay in Australia

– Provide a letter of invitation from you, indicating the purpose and duration of their visit and your relationship to them

– Meet any additional requirements based on their individual circumstances (e.g., age, country of origin, or purpose of visit)

To apply for a visitor visa, your family members will need to provide the following documents:

– A valid passport with at least 6 months validity beyond their intended stay in Australia

– A completed visa application form

– Two recent passport-sized photographs

– Evidence of their financial capacity to support their stay in Australia, such as:

– Bank statements showing their savings or income

– Credit card statements showing their credit limit

– A letter of financial support from you, indicating that you will provide accommodation and financial support during their stay

– Evidence of their health insurance coverage for their stay in Australia, such as:

– A travel insurance policy covering medical expenses, hospital care, and repatriation

– A reciprocal health care agreement between Australia and their home country (if applicable)

– A letter of invitation from you, indicating:

– The purpose and duration of their visit

– Your relationship to them

– Your contact details and address in Australia

– Details of the accommodation and financial support you will provide during their stay

– Other supporting documents as required, such as:

– Evidence of their employment or business activities in their home country

– Evidence of their family ties and responsibilities in their home country (e.g., marriage certificate, birth certificates of children, or family registration certificate)

– Evidence of their previous travel history and compliance with visa conditions

The visa application process and requirements can be complex and may vary depending on your family members’ individual circumstances. It’s important to carefully review the visa requirements and seek guidance from the Australian Department of Home Affairs or a registered migration agent to ensure that your family members provide all the necessary documents and information to support their visa application.

It’s also important to note that providing false or misleading information or documents in a visa application is a serious offense and can result in visa refusal, cancellation, or even legal penalties. Your family members should be honest and accurate in their visa application and provide genuine and verifiable documents to support their claims.

Overall, while the visitor visa requirements can be extensive and demanding, they are designed to ensure that visitors to Australia have a genuine reason for their visit, sufficient resources to support their stay, and do not pose any health or security risks to the Australian community. By understanding and meeting these requirements, your family members can increase their chances of a successful visa application and a smooth and enjoyable visit to Australia.
