Family Migration to Australia

Pathway To Permanent Residency

There are a number of migration options for partners, children, parents and other family members of Australian citizens. It also applies for permanent residents or eligible New Zealand citizens.

Family Migration to Australia:

Partner visas in Australia

It is possible to obtain a partner-based visa for immigration to Australia. This is if you plan to marry, are married to, or are in a committed relationship with an Australian citizen or permanent resident. An Australian citizen/permanent resident will sponsor you. It means that you will receive a statement in writing from your sponsor pledging to support you during your first two years in Australia. This should include housing and financial assistance to meet reasonable living expenses. The Australian immigration authorities determine whether family migration applicants meet Australia’s health standards. The applicants must also meet the character requirements on an individual basis.

Spouse Visa

You may be eligible for a Spouse Visa for immigration to Australia if you are married to an Australian citizen or permanent resident. You are also eligible if have been in a de facto relationship (common law) with one for at least 12 months.

If you intend to marry an Australian citizen or permanent resident, you can apply for a fiancé(e) visa for immigration to Australia.

An Australian citizen or permanent resident who is in a genuine interdependent relationship with you, and who wishes to enter and remain permanently in Australia requires an Interdependent Partner Visa. It also applies to same-sex couples.

Parent Visa

You may qualify for a parent visa if your child is an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen. They must be willing and able to sponsor you.

There are 3,500 spots in the contributory parent category, with a shorter waiting period than the other parent visa types.

The Australia Family Relationship visa is intended for unmarried students of secondary school age who wish to stay for an extended holiday of up to 12 months. It is a chance to experience living in Australia while staying with family members or close family friends.


Additionally, we can assist you with the following types of family visas:

remaining relative visa is for those who are the only members of their family outside Australia except for young children. In any case, your spouse must not have close relatives, either in your country of residence or in any other overseas country.

In order to apply for a Carer Visa, you must have a relative in Australia who requires your care. They must need your care because they are ill, or have a mental or physical disability, or both. There must be a reasonable expectation that this need for care will continue for at least two years.

Former Residents

resident return visa allows permanent residents or former citizens who have lost their citizenship to return to Australia.

Applicants for former resident visas must have either: spent nine out of your first 18 years in Australia as an Australian permanent resident. They be under 45 years of age at the time of application, never become an Australian and maintain close ties with Australia. They also may have completed at least three months continuous Australian defence service, or were discharged before completing 3 months service because you became medically unfit due to that service.

Dependent Visas

Visa for elderly dependent relatives This visa allows elderly relatives to reunite with family in Australia. In order to qualify, you must have been financially supported by an Australian relative for the previous three years. The relative must be a citizen of Australia or have lived in Australia for at least two years.

An aged parental visa allows parents to reunite with their children in Australia. There is a possibility that you may be able to visit your children and grandchildren living in Australia. If you are a couple, one of you must be over the legal retirement age in Australia to apply for this visa.

Parents of citizens or permanent residents of Australia who are of working-age can apply for this visa in order to reunite with their children in Australia. Seeing your grandchildren grow up may be possible if your children reside in Australia.

A child who has no family overseas, but has family in Australia, may be eligible for the Orphan Child Migration Visa. A relative in Australia must be a grandparent, a brother or sister, an aunt or uncle, or a niece (or an equivalent step-relative).

Adoption Migration Visa is for Australian citizens who wish to adopt a child under the age of 18. Before applying for the child’s migration to Australia, or before the adoption process is underway, you must have the Australian adoption papers completed.

I was referred to Mr. Murali by one of my friends and his service was phenomenal. I had to apply for a spouse visa and I took Murali's service in 2019. Though there was a delay of over 3 years from my end to share the documents due to other commitments I had, he did honor the agreement and helped us get the visa in under 3 months once the documents were shared. I highly recommend Mr. Murali for any immigration services if you are looking for someone who is straightforward and keep his words.

Thank you Mr. Murali Mangalath for helping us through this process. We are happy to say that we have successfully gained our residence status here in Australia . It was very easy to work with your office in cochin and Melbourne as well. Answering all of our questions with simplified answers to help us understand what exactly we needed to do in our documents. To my understanding, the application was processed bit longer than I expected due to the pandemic situation but you’ve put extra effort to get rid of all worries and concerns we had. Thank you for being patient with us. The personalised services made us feel special and cared about. All of the paperwork was in perfect order, complete and explanation for each. Thank you again for helping us. Me and my family start a new life in Australia together. We would certainly recommend Mangalath immigration’s services to anyone for all visa and migration matters .

I am Srinivasan. I received SA 491 grant recently. I was referred to Mr. Murali by my friend and former colleague Mr. Karthik.I have lived in USA for 10+ years and was very skeptical about migrating to Australia initially considering my age. Immigrating to Australia is a complex process.My first communication with Mr. Murali got me convinced that I have found the right contact to address my immigration concerns. He guided me on the correct visa that i need to apply for. He also provided me a contact who would help me with the correct guidance to crack PTE to get maximum points from it.I also would like to express my gratitude to Mr. Murali for being very patient in answering my questions (sometimes silly and basic) and always reassured me that everything will be fine throughout the whole journey. During the course of the journey i was getting into an uncertain mode whether i would get the grant or not, and Mr. Murali again assured me that the grants will flow out soon. Their charges for the services were also nominal.Mr. Murali was very practical in his answers with me which always kept me afloat through the entire process when my thoughts about the grant happening were fading away and i was almost ready to forget about it. In short, Mr. Murali was "the" man for me during crisis.I will definitely recommend Mr. Murali and Mangalath Immigration Services India and Mangalath Immigration Australia for a transparent, smooth and assured process for anyone desiring to get an Australian visa.Again Thank you Mr. Murali for the services, guidance and patience for keeping my mind at ease

I had a very good experience with them,with their service and work they did for us.I came to Australia through Mangalath Immigration in 2015, they really did great service, My brother recently got his subclass 189 visa through them. They did every single step carefully and updating us immediately. When case officer contacted them for additional documents, They have communicated with us and submitted documents with in hours. My brother skill assessment was refused initially as he did from different agents who did not do the proper work, then we contacted Mangalath Immigration they have assessed his application and launched properly, now we got visa on hand.
