Hi there,

I am a permanent resident in Australia since 2014.

Can I sponsor both my brother (35 years old) and my mom (70 years old) together to visit me in Australia on a visitor visa subclass 600?

Or am I allowed to sponsor only one of them?

I did not really understand the details about 'family unit' that are mentioned in the visa guidelines

Thanks in advance for your help

You cannot sponsor more than one person if you are talking about being a family sponsor for a visitor. Also you would need deposit a bond of AUD 5000 minimum when you sponsor.

Hi, I am planning to sponsor my brother for the visitor visa 600. While filling the Form 1149 I noticed that it is required to prove my relationship with the person I am sponsoring. What document could I possibly submit to prove my relationship with my sibling?

If you share the same parents --> your birth certificate with parents name stated, your siblings birth certificate with parents name stated.

Use same logic for step-siblings. Not too sure about adopted siblings.

Actually it turns out that my birth certificate is in a regional language. So I doubt if it could be verified that we share the same parents if his certicate is in English. I don't think I have enough time to get my certificate in English. Would Passport do? Considering our parents' names are given there as well!

If they're given there as well then sure I don't see why not! :)

I have just applied for a prospective partner visa as my fiancee is a PR in Australia. At present the processing time for Prospective Partner Visa is 18 months. Would it be possible to apply for a longer term visitor visa (with one year stay) to join my partner in Australia? What form shall I use for this purpose 1418 or 1419?

Thanks for your help.
