189 Visa Application - Adding Non-Dependent Non-Migrating Family Members

I recently received my EOI from the DIBP and I am unsure about filling in the section regarding "migrating family members".

I was told by a friend that if I intend to have family or my partner migrate to Australia in the future, that including them in the application now is the best way to go, even though they have no plans to migrate in the short term.

Therefore, in this case, all family are currently non-migrating and non-dependent. Is what my friend said true? What should I do? If I include them now do I have to fill in extra paperwork and get them to perform health checks etc?

You must declare all members of your family unit, migrating or not, and dependants must satisfy the public interest criteria, character and medical.

Other than spouses, family members who are not dependants cannot be included.

Applying for dependent family members later will cost much more

Thanks Wrussell for the prompt reply.

Can I get some clarification here? It sounds a bit contradictory.

You mentioned that "family members who are not dependants cannot be included", but you also say that "I must declare all members of the family unit". In my case I believe none of my family members are classified as dependants. So do I include?

Also, which direction of dependence is the DIBP after? Me, the applicant being dependent on them for financial support or the other way around?

To be extra clear, the invitation for EOI is only for myself. In addition, I don't have any intention to have any of my family migrate over in the short term.

EDIT:

The family I am referring to is my Parents, and my sisters. I myself am in a relationship, but not married. I guess none of these people are part of the DIBP's Family Unit?

Only members of nhe family unit, as defined, may be include on a visa applica5ion. Various other relatives and relationships must be declared. For more search, download and read (the dreaded) form 80.
