Family Sponsorship

Hi all
Does anybody know what the story is regarding sponsorship by a family member (Uncle) to live in Aus? I was a perminant resident in Oz but didnt complete the 2 years perminant res to gain citizenship so lost my residence. My wife has family in Oz that are citizens and we are keen to try get back there but not sure of the rules regarding this.
Any help would be appreciated

Family sponsorship [other than that where a partner visa is being applied for] is a variation of the independent skills stream visa 175, having family sponsorship meaning you could apply for the 176 visa which has a 100 points requirement.

But right now with global/Australian economic conditions, the government has introduced priorities on processing of skilled stream visas and a family sponsdorship 176 will not be considered - have a look at FAQ in the sticky thread #4 of this section.

But depending on how long you have been out of Australia for and the reason, have you looked at the RRV to see whether you have eligibility - Five Year Resident Return Visa (Subclass 155)
