Sponsorship turnaround

Hi all

Just wanted to know if there is a waiting period in between sponsoring visitors to Aussie?

I am a citizen of Australia and just sponsored my aunty and uncle to visit us and they are returning in February, I now wish to sponsor my cousin sister for 3 weeks in March 2013, she is lodging her papers in Fiji as soon as she gets it in mid February 2013 as their lodgement turnaround is approximately 1 month.

Is there a six month waiting period between sponsorships such as these or has someone told me the wrong information? Some help please because I do want to ensure that my paperwork is all correct and that I get a positive answer out of it.

Thanks kindly

Exactly what visas did you sponsor your relatives previously on? The 676 visitor visa does not have a "sponsorship" per se, however the 679 sponsored family visitor visa does, and that visa requires that the current visa of any sponsored family members expires before you can sponsor another visitor.
