Hi everyone,

Could you inform me, (and the community in who may read this thread in the future)in regards to:

Inviting someone to Australia As of 2022

Could you please answer these questions, that could help me, or others in the future too.

 

the examples are to illustrate case situations that may fall in these criteria, you may be in that situation or not, not all examples are pertaining to me personally but rather to emphasize the requirements, given how obtuse such answers are to enquire.

#1 What is the minimum employment status towards inviting someone to Australia:

-

Example: John has been working for 3 weeks and has only one pay slip but has accommodation,

Sarah has been working for 3 months and has multiple pay slips but has no accommodation,

Chris is listed as casual, and is recieving part payments from Centrelink and has accommodation family,

Lastly Tom is unemployed but can provide some financial assistance with accommodation while on Centrelink, but is not working as of now.

-

#2 Does the visitor require mandatory travel health insurance if they visit?

#3 Does the visitor require funds before traveling over sea's?

#4 Does the recipient from whom they invite require all documents provided via their respective channel, need to have all documents statutorily signed by a public official (bases on documents)

-

Example: bank statement from it's respective source/government/Centrelink/payslip, bankruptcy in the unlikely event, compound interests, pertaining towards proof of support.

-

#5 When and when not(basis of pandemic or not) do you notify immigration of immediate changes:

-

Example:

Andrew's wife was married outside of Australia but decided to inform the immigration in that respective country, due to the nature of unforseen circumstances that had created them to live single lives, they then decided to remove financial burden in their respective countries given the situation was out of their control, until they were able to do so on arrival in Australia.

Ben was living in Thailand or Philippines, or any region in Asia for two years, and found work while unable to return to Australia, could a family member invite Ben back to Australia if he was a British born citizen, or countries that have joint sovereignty to Australia like New Zealand being one example, should Ben notify the embassy, or contact Australian immigration immediately to update changes.

-

#6 What constitutes a business for a visitor to visit Australia:

-

Example:

Lou worked for the family business, but earned nothing from it until he's older sister found work, given Lou was not employed, and the business name was in Lou's sister's name, but Lou's older sister decided to give Lou the online business due to her finding employment; does Lou's new found business in these respective countries: Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia allow Lou to apply for a 600 series visa even tho Lou has no property but is earning a income.

-

#7 Does each state enforce immigration more differently then other states of Australia:

-

Example: overseas visitor to Perth Vs over sea's visitor to Sydney (pre-pandemic and current pandemic) would the outcome be more stringent or more lenient.

-

#8 If at such circumstances the visitor isn't able to travel to the respective state in Australia, can another family member invite them?

-

Example: Harry's younger sister lives in Mexico, but wishes to visit family in Sydney, but cannot because harry has only invited he's sister to Perth and only Perth, could Harry's sister stil travel from Perth to Sydney and leave sydney back to Mexico, if that person in sydney who stil is a family member but could not for-fill the requirements pertaining to work, or accommodation that Harry could still be able to meet the requirements in a different way.

#1 What is the minimum employment status towards inviting someone to Australia

:#7 Does each state enforce immigration more differently then other states of Australia:

Visitors do not need to be "invited" to Australia.  If someone wants to  visit they apply for the appropriate visa:  they do not need to know anyone in Australia.

If a person is granted a visitor visa by the Australian government they are free to travel anywhere in the country (providing they comply with any current Covid restrictions  when moving between states).  

In #7 you refer to immigration - which is different from visiting.  

Any individual who wishes to visit or migrate should apply for the appropriate visa.  There are many different visas, they all have defined conditions and

the details for each  can be found here in this link:

Where do you get the idea that an invitation is required?  Who told you that?  It's not true. 

All visitors to Australia must have sufficient funds to support themselves while they are in the country.

It is true for some people from some countries.

People who only have a passport from countries that do not qualify for any type of e-visa can only apply for a 600 visitor visa if they want to visit Australia.

One of the things they have to do to get this visa is prove that they're a genuine visitor - and they do this by providing various bits of documentation one of which is an invitation from a relative or friend in Australia.
