Non migrating members of the family unit

Hello,

Could someone please clarify regarding following question for 309 visa application. My partner is Australian and kids still British, but we will be soon applying for their citizenship. So at the time of entry to Australia, they will be Australian.

''Does the applicant have any members of their family unit not travelling to Australia who are not Australian citizens or Australian permanent residents?''

I would assume by just reading the question that my answer should be ''NO'' but when I click the explanatory ? it says the following

''List all members of your family unit who are not applying to migrate with you. This includes your Australian citizen family members''

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Kind regards

Vicky

Hi Danny,

I have looked around for some clarification and found the best description here:

''Non-migrating members of the family unit
Include any member of your family unit who would normally be included in this application but who does not require a visa. This member of your family unit may not be migrating to Australia or they may hold Australian citizenship.

There are further questions on the partner visa forms to gather information about the applicant's extended family members.

In some circumstances, this member of the family unit will be required to undergo health and character clearances.

This member of your family unit may wish to migrate later but must be aware that they will need to meet visa eligibility requirements in their own right at that time unless they meet visa requirements as part of this application and can travel within the validity of the visa.

A family member who already holds a valid visa or Australian Citizenship who may be travelling to Australia for residence with the family unit will not need to be included in the family migration application. However, they should be recorded as non-migrating members of your family unit.''

Any more thoughts on this?

Vicky

In my case: myself is an Australian citizen and our first son has got PR. Now I am sponsoring my wife and our second son. Therefore, I listed myself and my first son as non-migrating members of faimily unit.
To my experience, if I included let's say my first son here, his name would have been be appeared in the dashboard and may have been required a medical check as well.
I did not look around but felt this question already clear I think:
'Does the applicant have any members of their family unit not travelling to Australia who are not Australian citizens or Australian permanent residents?', so I just answered as the way it asks: 'any members..and they are not Aussies or PR'
