Adult age daughter visa?

Hello all I am new to the forum so I'm hoping I am doing this right! My name is Chris. I was born in the US and married my wife there, ( she's an Aussie) we moved to Australia 6 years ago. I have since became a proud new citizen! We would like to bring my daughter over as she is having problems with her living arrangements. It will be great for her and us as well to have her here with us. She will be 25 in August. My question is, we don't really know where to start and which visa's we should be looking at. The sooner the better as well, as her landlord may be evicting her soon. My wife and I own a small business which she will be working in, so her finding a job is not an issue. Can anyone point us in the right direction please?


Any and all information will be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Hi Cvend -

If she's from the USA, a working holiday visa is an easy way to have her here for a year with full work & study rights. They are generally granted in days (or even hours), and don't require any particular sponsorship from an employer or relative. Can apply online on DIBP website.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Thanks for the quick response Mark! That is very useful information! I like the idea of a quick approval time. I'm not sure if its true or not, but I would think it would be easier to apply for residency if she is already in the country. Just my thoughts anyways.

It would depend on the type of visa being applied for onshore - however any sort of employer sponsored visa might be much easier since she could spend a year here looking for a sponsor/job/etc.

Best,

Mark

Whether she can apply for a longer term visa will most likely depend on what she does, since she'd need to meet the criteria for an occupation on one of DIBPs two skilled occupation lists (SOL and CSOL).
