Hi I am new here but I am asking on behalf of another girlfriend who is currently on her bridging visa and she would like to know if she can sponsor a relative to visit her. she is doing cash jobs and getting by and she doesn't benefit from centrelink. she gets assistance from church groups. any advice would be beneficial for her.

I don't know, but I am concerned when you say she is doing 'cash jobs', what do you mean? Does her visa permit working? Is she paying Tax on her income? If the answer to either of those is no, she risks losing her visa and being deported.

In addition to the above comments, sponsorship is not required for a visitor visa so this would be the simplest and cheapest way for the relative to visit her

You should give it a second thought if she has a work permit and doing cash job its fine. Or else she might lose her Visa and gets deported for violating the rules and regulations of Australia.
