Visa subclass for carer of pregnant Australian citizen

Hi there,

Sarah is pregnant. Still not settled down but most likely her mom or sister volunteer to temporarily come to Australia to support her throughout pregnancy and post-delivery period. What visa sub-class suits our circumstances?

Cheers
J&S

Hi Jamal -

Probably sponsored family visitor - subclass 679, or perhaps an extended subclass 676 visitor visa for 12 months depending on the applicant's circumstances. I wouldn't go for the Carer visa as those are notoriously hard to get and involve proving that the sponsor cannot get the needed care from an Australian or Australian organisation/agency/etc.

Best,

Mark Northam

Thanks! Happy to help - Australian immigration law and regulations can be confusing as it's very complex - over 125 different types of visas for Australia, and sorting out one from another can be frustrating.

For the 679, make sure you read the DIAC page at:

Sponsored Family Visitor visa (Subclass 679)

Note that there is a mandatory condition 8503 (No Further Stay) which means the applicant must depart Australia after the term of the visa (usually 12 months), and an Assurance of Support is often required - that's a bond you deposit that typically is around AUD$5000 but can be more.

Also note that like the 676 visitor visa, the 679 visa is subject to the Genuine Visitor regulations which assess the likelihood (in DIAC's opinion) that the applicant might overstay his/her visa here. We've included on our website the specific policy DIAC uses to assess this - here's a link:

Northam & Associates – Genuine Visitor Regulations

Please advise if I can assist any further, and best of luck with your application!

Best,

Mark Northam

To sponsor for 679 does Sarah need valid passport?
Sarah is Australian permanent resident holding non-Australian passport which recently expired. Does she need to renew her passport first before lodging 679?

Thanks in advance
