How to Apply for Dependant Family Members to Join You?

You can apply for eligible family members to come to Australia as dependants in one of two ways:

  • By including them in your student visa application
  • By applying for them to join you after you have started your course in Australia


You must declare all family members on your application, even if they do not plan to travel with you to Australia. If you do not do this, your family members will not be eligible to apply to join you after you have started your course in Australia.
