Hello All,

I am very new to this forum and need your advice on the following:

I am currently on Subclass 309 visa (spouse of Australian citizen), and in the process of getting Subclass 100.

I am planning to invite my parents to visit me in Australia from India.

I have been in Australia from 1 year 7 months.

1) Can I sponsor my parents on Family Sponsored Stream, or do they need to apply on Visitor Visa (Tourist Stream).

2) Can I still sponsor them if they apply on Tourist Stream. What form will I need to fill in for sponsoring them?

Dear

You do not need to sponsor them as parents can come on tourist 600 visa. How ever you need to provide them with a letter of Invitation stating their length of stay and purpose of visit. Also stating that their boarding and lodging arrangements .

A sponsor must:

be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
be older than 18 years of age
have been settled in Australia for a reasonable period (usually more than two years).

As you are currently on 309 Temporary visa and not settled for a reasonable time, you are not eligible to Sponsor them.
