Students can apply for the family members to come to Australia as dependents by means of including the family members in the student visa application form or apply for the family members to join them later after they have started their course of Study in Australia
It is significant to note that the all the family members who will join them later as dependents have to be mentioned in the student visa application form, if not, they will not be qualified to join them later after they have started their course of study.
Application Process for the Dependent Family Members :
- Students in Australia have to complete the relevant forms on line and has to send them to the family members outside Australia
- Family members have to submit these forms along with the supporting documents at the nearby office of the department and have to pay the fees of the application
- As a final step, the departmental office informs the family members whether they require some additional information, or if not, informs them about the status of the application.
If the students are planning to Migrate to Australia and applying for the family members to join after they have started their course of study, they have to provide the necessary documents along with the forms before they are mentioned.
