When applying for this visa, you have the option to include members of your family unit. You have the option to include them when you submit your visa application or add them afterwards, but it must be before the decision is made.
Family members who apply for the visa must meet specific health and character requirements. Additionally, those family members who do not plan to come to Australia may still be subject to health and character requirements.
Your family includes:
- Your partner
- Your dependent children
- Your partner's dependent children
- Other relatives who are dependents (partner, child, parent, sibling, grandparent, grandchild, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, or cousin)
If your child is not a dependent, then they must apply for their own visa.
It's crucial to declare all family members, even those not applying with you.
Note: If you don't declare a family member in your application, proposing them for a refugee and humanitarian visa after arriving in Australia may not be possible.
