If you have any family member settled in Australia, it may increase your chances of migrating to Australia. Australian residents, Australian permanent residents and NZ residents can sponsor close family members for permanent residence or migration to Australia.
Australian citizens and permanent residents can sponsor their spouse/partners for migration to Australia. To sponsor a spouse/ partner, you must either be married, in a de facto relationship, have a registered relationship or be engaged.
If you are a parent with at least half your children living permanently in Australia, you may be eligible for a parent visa which grants permanent residence in Australia. Aged Parent visa (on shore) is available to parents over a certain age allowing them to remain in Australia on a bridging visa during the processing of their application.
