How Assurance of Support works.
In this section
An assurance of support is a legal agreement you make with us to help someone get a visa to live in Australia. It's your promise to pay us back for any income support we give them.
There are 2 types of assurance of support. Which one you need depends on the visa type.
To be eligible to become an assurer for an assurance of support you must meet certain criteria.
If you give a bank guarantee you should be ready to put money in the bank to cover its value.
Assurance of support period
The assurance of support period depends on the type of visa you apply for. It can last for 1, 2, 4 or 10 years.
