Australian residents, Australian permanent residents and NZ residents can sponsor close family members for permanent residence or migration to Australia.
Australian citizens and permanent residents can sponsor partners for migration to Australia. To sponsor a partner, you must either be married, in a defacto relationship, have a registered relationship or be engaged.
Parents with at least half their children living permanently in Australia may be eligible for a parent visa which gives them permanent residence in Australia. Parents over a certain age may be eligible to apply for an onshore 'aged parent' visa which allows them to remain in Australia on a bridging visa during processing.
If you are a skilled worker, then if you have relatives in Australia, they may be able to sponsor you for a general skilled visa. This would make it easier for you to meet the relevant pass mark for the application.
