Smile Visitor Visa


I would like to Invite my sister and mom for visiting to Sydney and spend some time with the family and I am planning to arrange travel over the famous places in Australia and show the places.

I am planning to bring them for about 6 - 8 months.

Here I would like to know which visa is better; I mean Tourist (676) or Family Sponsored (679).

I am a PR holder and I have full time Job to support her Travel, stay, food...etc all expenses.

One more thing, My sister is working in a private software firm, I checked with her that Her employer can give only the letter stating that, she is working in that company as Permanent Role. Employer is not willing to state how long she is going for the vacation.

Now I am in a great confusion that how can she show that, she will go back after few months (6/8 months).

As I am inviting her first time, i really do not want her visa to be rejected.
Please guide me about the documents requirements for processing this visa.

Thanks in advance,

If you are from somewhere like India for instance, your sister and mum will find from the Immi people in India that there are particular requirements for tourist visas and quite possibly likewise in other countries.
The authorities are very conscious of people arriving from some countries on tourist visas and not really wanting to return and thus some support of a return intent being required.
Now I am in a great confusion that how can she show that, she will go back after few months (6/8 months).
I think you do understand that.
That your sister for instance has a permanent job, annual leave for a holiday trip is a lot different to an extended stay.
And for your mother, likewise she may find that something like a return security bond could be necessary.
But best approach is for them to contact the Immi people where they are.
