Health and character check of non migrating dependents


Recommended Posts

what is the usually reason for such situation?

Non migrating dependents may choose to migrate later. It is easier, politically, to refuse a visa to a whole family before anyone moves to Australia than to refuse a visa to a dependent once their partner/parents/etc. are already living in Australia. If the Australian Government did allow non-migrating relatives to bypass the initial checks, you could bet that families with a "difficult" member (i.e. one with poor health or bad criminal record) would leave the difficult member off the initial application and then submit an application for that member once the family has relocated, hoping for higher thresholds, MRT applications or ministerial intervention.
