Hi, my family and I are exploring emigrating to Oz specifically Perth. I have already been told due to my sons Autism that securing a visa is not going to be straight forward and potentially a non starter! However, I was wondering if having family in Oz would make any difference. My sister and her family are Oz citizens and my brother and partner are PR. My parents are also looking to retire to Oz in the next five years. So all my immediate family will (potentially) be in Oz. My son does currently require full support in school. This is where I have been told the ‘problem’ can arise in getting a visa due to the cost incurred in providing educational support. However, we could afford to pay for my sons education and can evidence this long-term. I am not sure if this is taken into consideration during the visa/immigration process? Additionally, would a visa application in my situation be made easier if my sibling sponsored me? As a kind of guarantor?
