  • Balance-of-Family-Test – Migration – Australia

Balance-of-Family-Test (BoFT) is mandatory. There is no provision to seek exemption from this test even if compelling or exceptional grounds exist.

You meet the BoFT only if,

  • at least half of your children (including step and adopted children) are eligible children,

or

  • there are more eligible children living in Australia, than children living in any other single country
