Niece visit visa application refused

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I applied on my niece behalf for a visitor visa 600. I made mistake and applied for a tourist visa as I was not aware of sponsored visit visa.

the officer refused the application as she believes the applicant hasn't provided her travel history and a genuine intention to return to her home country.

my niece is a 19 years old student and never travelled abroad. I explained this in the application as well so I am not sure why the officer is not satisfied 


i am wondering is it wise to reapply for a family sponsored visa ?


what are the chances of refusal or approval ?


She is from iran and I am an Australian citizen.

You will struggle with a visitor visa from Iran as it is considered a high risk country for Migration purposes. You will need to provide strong evidence of intention to return home such as family, employment, study etc.

A family sponsored visitor visa will have a stronger chance of success, but you will most likely have to post a hefty bond.
