Remaining Relative Visa for Australia (115 Visa)
Also known as the 115 Visa
This visa is for applicants:
- whose only close relatives are usually resident in Australia and are Australian citizens, permanent residents or eligible New Zealand citizens.
- that can be sponsored by their brother, sister, parent (or step-equivalent) who usually resides in Australia and is a citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen, and have no brothers, sisters, parents, dependent children (or step-equivalents) who are not usually resident in Australia*
- that can meet the health and character requirements.
The Remaining Relative Visa – 115 application process involves an initial application, an Assurance of Support and a non-refundable second visa application charge.
Please note that this type of application has a lower processing priority than for parents and children, and as a result there will be a substantial wait before the application is finalised.
*It is possible to have a partner or dependent children included on the application.
Please note: This visa type is no longer available for new applicants, but those already lodged with DIBP will continue to be processed.
