Default Parents Balance of family test

Hi there

I currently a permanent resident in Australia. My parents live in Sri Lanka and are about to come to Australia on a tourist visa. If they decide to live here as aged parents would they meet the family balance test?

I am a permanent resident and live in Melbourne
My sister is in Australia on a temporary visa but she will apply for a permanent skilled visa in October this year.
My step sister lives in Switzerland with her husband.

Thanks in advance

The balance of family test requires that at least half of the applicant's children live permanently in Australia, or that more of their children live permanently in Australia than in any other country.

Children counted for the purpose of the balance of family test include all children and step-children of:

• the parent or

• the parent’s spouse or de facto partner.

What is the exact relationship with the step-sister ? Who are the parents ?
