I too had this happen and was wondering why I had my husband’s family who were not migrating to Aus with us coming up. I am the sponsor and when we did my husband’s application form, we misunderstood the question and thought ‘family unit’ meant his mum, dad, brother and sister. However after paying for a telephone consultation with a migration agent, they confirmed that ‘family unit’ is referencing dependants only (aka - if they had a child with another partner and there could be a future possibility that they may migrate). The migration agent told me to lodge a notification of change in circumstances in my immi account and just say I misunderstood the question. Nothing has changed since I did so, but I don’t think our application has been looked at yet (we applied 4th october so fingers crossed soon) so hopefully once it is, all will be fine.
Hope that helps!
@Urban_Fox I applied on the 28th October 2018 and my status also shows as received (applicant), and submitted (sponsor). I check regularly for any change, but nothing yet...I guess it’s early days. I don’t have any upload section for any other members of my family, other than my husband (who is the sponsor). I’m wondering if maybe you’ve accidentally ticked a box and that’s the reason you have that...puzzling 🤔 Hopefully someone else can shed some light on that.
Hi I have gone through an immigration company. It is not a certificate as such, they just call it that. In short basically all my qualifications have been aporoved so that I can apply for jobs in my specific area. I have come out on a business visa as was told by several people it’s easier to find work when in Australia.
