Family members

    Family members:
  • can be included in your application when it is lodged
  • can be added to your application after it is lodged but before a decision on your visa is made.

More information is available about including family members in your application, including definitions of family members. There is a fee for family members who apply for the visa with you.

Family members who apply for the visa with you must also meet health and character requirements.

Usually, family members who do not apply for the visa must also meet health and character requirements.

Your partner

If you have a partner, you should include their details in your application, even if they are not applying for the visa with you.

If you do not include their details and you are granted the visa, you will not be able to sponsor them for a Partner visa.

Newborn children

If your child is born after you lodge your application but before the visa is decided, you must tell us as soon as possible so we can include them in your application.

Information is available about adding newborn children in the After you apply tab under Add family members.
