Default Family sponsorship

Hello

We are a family of 4 looking into the possibility of moving to Australia permanently. I have visited a number of times as my dad is an Australian citizen. Knowing that, I have looked into the family sponsorship but as far as I can gather, it looks as though he could only sponsor me if he was an Australian citizen at the time of my birth and this isn’t the case. He became a citizen a few years after my birth. I also have a sister who was born in Australia.

Is there any route through family sponsorship that I could go down with this scenario?

Alternatively, we are looking at visa 189 as my partner’s occupation is on there he is a construction project manager.

Any help would be appreciated 😊

He can sponsor you for an491 visa as long as he lives in a regional area. However, this is exactly the same as applying for a 189 with the addition of sponsorship, which just gives some extra points. So, in effect you still need an occupation on the long term list and need to pass a skills assessment etc. IT is also inferior to a 189

That’s great thank you for your help! So it would be better to go for the 189 to give us more chance?
