An Australian citizen, permanent resident, or an ENZC can sponsor a partner for a partner visa.
Family-sponsored visa applicants typically include children with parents residing in Australia or parents with one or more children settled in Australia.

While a parent visa allows the parent(s) of a child or step-child who is a settled Australian citizen, settled Australian permanent resident or settled eligible New Zealand citizen to migrate to Australia to join their children.
