Can my family be included in my temporary skilled worker visa application?

Most immediate family members (or dependent relatives) can be included in your application, however there are a number of requirements before the application can be lodged.

They must meet the Australian Government’s requirements to be considered ‘family’ and include documentation to support your relationship.

Family members will need to meet the same health and character requirements as you as well as to show that their financial support matches yours. Lastly, Sponsors for subclass 457 applications will also need to consent in writing to include your family members as secondary sponsored persons. More information can be found on the department of Immigration website and in our office from a skilled team of solicitors and registered migration agents.
