Hi everyone,

I am planning to call my parents in this December in a visitor visa for 6-12 months. I am currently in 457 visa & I am from Nepal.

1 Which application form we need to submit to DIAC?

2 Can we submit the docs in immigration centre in Australia or have to be done from Nepal?

3 Can we sponsor them & how much fund we need to show as a bank statement?

4 Since, she have good employment history, Can I show my partner payslip to apply?

Please, help me guys.

I don't believe you can sponsor them for a family-sponsored tourist visa because you're not permanent residents yet. They may just have to get a regular tourist visa on their own merits. Tourist visas aren't my area of expertise, though - I'd wait until someone else chimes in who can confirm or deny this.

Original Nationality: US
Visa #1: PMV (300) through Washington, D.C
Applied: April 2013.
Visa Granted: January 2014.
Visa #2: Subclass 820 (From PMV).
Applied: End of April 2014.
Visa Granted: Early July 2014.
Visa #3: 801 (PR)
Eligibility Date: End of April 2016 (Applied a month prior).
PR Granted: Early April 2017.

Hi Mr. Bond . College Girl is correct, you can't sponsor your parents as you are not an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident.

What about the invitation? Can we invite by showing accommodation & expenses beard by us? If so, how much we have to show?
