Working of this Visa
For perfect working of this onshore child visa it is important for both applicant (child) and sponsor (parent) to share certain responsibilities. The parent not only sponsors his child's immigration but also other family members who may be accompanying him/her. Parent's responsibility not only lays with sponsoring child's immigration but also his/her accommodation, living, and financial support as may be required for residing in Australia. This financial assistance is provided for a period of two years since the date of applicant's arrival. An applicant is required to submit a completed application along with supporting documents and necessary fees. In most instances, the sponsor completes these formalities on applicant's behalf.
