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 been granted your student visa to study in Aboad.

Note: It is important that you check the relevant information and requirements for the visa you are applying for.


  • You must declare all family members on your application, even if they do not plan to travel with you to move abroad. If you do not do this, your family members will not be eligible for the grant of student visas as your dependants to join you in Abroad. An exception to this is if they became your family members after your student visa was granted and before a subsequent application is made.
  • You must provide proof of your relationship to each family member such as officially issued birth and marriage certificates.
  • You must also demonstrate that you have enough money to support the members of your family unit such as your spouse or dependent child, even if they do not plan to travel with you to overseas. See Student visa living costs and evidence of funds.
  • Your family members must meet specific requirements to be eligible for a student visa as your dependants. These include genuine temporary entrant, health and character requirements.
  • If you are subject to assessment level three, your family members are only eligible to accompany you to abroad if your course is 12 months or longer except under certain circumstances. See Bringing family for more information.
  • The Immigrant Visa Unit handles all communication and processing regarding nonimmigrant fiancé(e) visas).L2 visa for dependents – Spouse and Child – L2 Visa EAD. Spouse (legally married husband or wife) and unmarried minor children (under the age of 21 years) are eligible to accompany the L-1 visa holder on L-2 visa. As L-2 visa is a dependent visa, the duration of valid stay is the same as that of the L-1 visa holder.
