Hi,
I am PR of Australia for 2 years now, living in Sydney. Looking to sponsor my younger brother to Australia, wanted to check what are the Visa options available.
If he applies for visa category 489 or 491 will he get any extra points for sponsorship from me?
Please let me know what would be the options.

TIA,
Sab

Hello,

489 is not an option now, these visa system is closed. 491 is a regional sponsored visa points tested, If you brother wants to get 5 points from you then you need to be residing in a Designate regional areas. In simple, you should be living in a regional area and your brother should also apply to live in a regional area. then again its a point tested visa so higher the points higher are the chances.
There is no special visa to call siblings in Australia, there is a last remaining relative visa option but the waiting time for that visa is around 50 years.
