- If parents, siblings and friends wish to visit you in Australia, they can apply for a short stay (visitor) visa. Information about visitor visas (opens an external site) can also be found on the Department of Home Affairs website.
If you are bringing school-aged dependants to Australia, you will normally be required to pay full fees if they are enrolled in either a government or non-government school. The Department of Home Affairs will process their visa with a letter of verification of your full-time status from UTS.
