Changing your accompanied status
Changing to 'accompanied' status
If you arrive in Australia as an unaccompanied awardee and subsequently decide to bring your family, please contact the AAS team to arrange for a ‘No Objection Letter’ to support your family’s visa application. In changing to an ‘accompanied’ status, you will waive any reunion travel entitlement.
- Sign and complete the proforma, which can be witnessed by any person over 18 years of age.
- Email the proforma to firstname.lastname@example.org along with copies of your dependents’ passports.
- The AAS team will request for your status to be changed to ‘accompanied’ and will request a ‘No Objection Letter’ from your scholarship provider.
Changing to 'unaccompanied' status
If you initially declared that your family will accompany you in Australia but this is no longer the case, you may claim reunion travel if you are eligible for this. Refer to the Scholarships Handbook for further details regarding eligibility.
