Can I include another family member when applying for a Subclass 804 visa?

Absolutely yes if that person meets the requirements.

I’ve read the article about a Subclass 870 visa on VEM’s website before. That 870 visa doesn’t require the balance-of-family test. So does this 804 visa apply the same requirement?

For a Subclass 840 visa, this requirement is necessary as it plays an important role in the success of your visa approval.

Yes. You can travel in and out of Australia as many times as you want for 5 years from the date the visa is granted. You will need to apply for and be granted a Resident Return (RRV) so that you can re-enter Australia as a permanent resident.
