How can your children soon reunite with your family in Australia with a Subclass 445 visa

To be reunited and live together in Australia, most parents who are temporary residents apply for a Subclass 445 visa to sponsor their dependent child. For this reason, VEM will provide you with the information, process, and requirements of this visa.

What is a Subclass 445 visa?

Subclass 445 is a temporary visa that allows a child to stay in Australia while their parent’s permanent Partner Visa application is in progress.


You (applicant) must be a child or stepchild of your parent who is the sponsor. This visa belongs to the Australian Family visas and can not be extended for a longer stay.
