Post difference between subclass 175 and subclass 176

i had a daughter who is a pr here in australia. would like to know if her siblings will use the 175 or 176 visa in lodging the application for pr. what are the differences between the 2 in terms of duration of processing and additional documents to be submitted aside from the documents to be submitted by the pr relative?:

Hi and welcome. It seems that the only difference between the visas is the requirement for sponsorship.

From immi site:

Skilled – Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175)
This visa is for you if you:
- Are under 50 years of age
- Have competent English language skills
- Have the skills and qualifications that meet the Australian standard for an occupation on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL).


Skilled – Sponsored (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 176)
This visa is for you if you:
- Are under 50 years of age
- Have competent English language skills
- Have the skills and qualifications that meet the Australian standard for an occupation on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL)
This visa also requires that either:
-You or your partner have an eligible relative living in Australia who is willing and able to sponsor you
OR
- You have a nomination from a participating State or Territory government agency.


Processing times
Subclass 176 = Priority 3, Low risk – 12 months
High risk – 24 months
Subclass 175 = Priority 4, 18 months
This information is from here:
Client Service Charter

You really need to read for yourself about the application process for each visa:
Subclass 176

Subclass 175
http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener...w-to-apply.htm

You will get really good information from the immi site
