If you are under 18 and are an orphan, you may be eligible for an Orphan Relative visa. You will need to be sponsored by an Australian citizen/permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen relative.
If you are under 18 and have been (or are being) adopted by an Australian citizen/permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen, you may be eligible for an Adoption Visa. Your adoption must generally be supported by the relevant State or Federal authorities.
