Non-accompanying members of the family unit

Could anyone help me with this urgent question plz, many thanks in advance!!!

Both my parents are now in Australia, but my father's visa is expiring this coming Friday. Since we can not extend a visitor visa, we need to apply a new visitor visa for my father.

In the application, there are 2 questions really confused me a lot, they are:

1. Are there any other persons travelling with the applicant to Australia?

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

Since my mother is in Australia, should my father list her as the family member who is travelling with him OR to define her as the family member who is NOT travelling to Australia?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Post covid 19 world is going to be different in every aspect one can think of, and that’s pretty much understood by now. People are almost used to and trying to completely adapt to the new normal of wearing masks in public along with the constant paranoia that follows.

Travel, tourism and immigration is one of the key categories of economic and social functions to get disturbed severely as soon as international travel was banned strictly throughout multiple borders. People in the middle of their immigration processes were left stranded because of the unprecedented times, and still are at some level.

Australia was among those majority countries to initially pause travel completely between borders, along with New Zealand that was even able to contain the virus at some point. Post covid travel restrictions are to ensure safety measures and virus control to make sure as countries eased travel intake for people who either wanted to travel back to their homelands in these uncertain times or for others that were trying to flee some place or another. An up-to date Australia immigration consultancy provider in Dubai can assist you in this properly like Vision Consultancy.

Australia Second citizenship, skilled New Zealand migration and Australia student visa are all part of programs that get affected. Following are the few things to keep in mind according to Australian government’s Covid response:

All travellers arriving in Australia, including Australian citizens, must quarantine for 14 days at a designated facility, such as a hotel in their port of arrival.​
You may be required to pay for the costs of your quarantine.
You cannot come to Australia unless you are in an exempt category or you have been granted an individual exemption to the current travel restrictions
Travel restrictions are subject to change. Please check back regularly at the National Cabinet media statement.
