Hi, you have a complex case with the father still alive, albeit with HIV. I recommend you talking to a migration agent about that. It is not something I have any experience with.

Assurances of support are discussed on the Centrelink website. My understanding is that it could be about $3,500 held in trust by Centrelink for two years. You get all of that back unless the orphan relative requires any assistance in the first two years.

When the orphan relative visa is granted it is a permanent visa. She will be a permanent resident. She will be treated by the education system as if she is Australian. She will not have to pay international student fees.
