Unhappy hi guys please help me....please!!!!!!!!

Well the story is,
Im 17, moms 41, dads 51 and my brother is sponsored and living in australia.

Now my mom, dad and I want to go to australia and see if we can get sponsored too. At the moment we have a 3 month holiday visa.

If we got sponsored over in australia could our visa be changed to a sponsorship one while in austraalia???

Hi Foley, welcome to the forum and you'll find that cut-off age for an independent skilled worker application is 45 which does not apply to a 457 employer sponsor visa last time I looked, so have a look @ it on Employer Sponsored Workers - Workers - Visas & Immigration .

Only long term problem with that is they are temporary residence visas which offer a possibility of permanent residence via a further application for an ENS but I recall they also have a cut-off age of 45 on applications.
So that obviously would limit what your father may be able to achieve though if your mother has skills and can get sponsorship, eventual PR is a possibility.

If that was the case, your father and you become secondary applicants for an initial 457 and your father for the follo-up on the ENS.
You would be 18 by then which is normal cut-off age to be a dependant but an application would be able to be done under family migration - Child Visa (Onshore) (Subclass 802)

That's getting down the track a bit and first things first, sounds like the family needs to look at sponsorship that could lead to PR.

The other longer term approach that may eventually work if and when your brother has PR is the parent visa in the family stream and so have a look @ Parent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 103)

Of course, when you are 18 you could initially apply for a working holiday visa or if training for a particular trade or profession you may be eligible for independent skilled migration or getting sponsorship for yourself some time in the future.

Immigration regulations are constantly being reviewed in the light of the current global economic situation and how Australia's economy is and expected to head, and so anything planned needs to consider that too.
