Sponsor Your Relatives

Who Can Be Sponsored?

Relatives who fall into the ‘other’ category can only be sponsored in very specific situations.

1) Orphaned Brother, Sister, Nephew, Niece or Grandchild

An orphaned brother, sister, nephew, niece or grandchild can be sponsored if they meet the following conditions:

  • They are related to the sponsor by blood or adoption.
  • Both their mother and father died.
  • They are under 18.
  • They are not married or in a common-law or conjugal relationship.

2) Other Relative

One relative, related by blood or adoption, of any age, can be sponsored if the sponsor meets all of these conditions:

  • The sponsor does not have a living relative they could sponsor instead, such as a:
    • Spouse
    • Common-law partner
    • Conjugal partner
    • Son or daughter
    • Parent
    • Grandparent
