Visa for a Child born overseas for Parents holding PR ??

Hi,

Myself and my spouse having PR (175 skilled migrant)and living in Australia, we are expecting a baby by next year.
I am planning to send her to the home country (India) for the delivery.

In this case, what will be the citizenship status of the baby born overseas for the parents having valid PR, (father living in Australia)??

1) Do baby still eligible to get the Australian citizenship similar to the baby born in Australia?
or
2) I need to apply a separate child visa (101).

If its child visa how long it takes?, as it might be the straight forward application for the healthy baby.

Thanks

For now you'll have to apply for a child visa for your baby.

Then, if you are your partner remain permanent residents of Australia, your child will be eligible for citizenship if he/she spends most of their time in Australia until their 10th birthday. I'll update with some links later.

However, if you or your husband become citizens, the child will be eligible for citizenship straight away.

Just wanna add, if your baby is born oversea, your baby is only eligible for Au citizenship if 1 of the parent is Au citizen at the time of the birth.

Cheers

Sorry I made a mistake, you're right dusty_springfield. And here's the link:
Australian Citizenship – Quick guide to Australian citizenship
If you were born overseas to an Australian parent you can apply for citizenship by descent.

Whether you are an Australian citizen by birth depends on the date of your birth.
Most children born in Australia before 20 August 1986 are Australian citizens by birth unless one parent was entitled to diplomatic privileges or was a consular officer of another country.
Children born after that date are only Australian citizens if at least one parent was an Australian citizen or permanent resident at the time of their birth.

Children born in Australia to parents who are not Australian citizens or permanent residents, automatically acquire Australian citizenship on their 10th birthday if they have lived most of their life in Australia.

These are the standard processing times for the Child visa (101).
Lodged in Australia,
Low risk - 7 months
High risk - 8 months

Lodged outside Australia,
Low risk - 3 months
High risk - 14 months

Hi angorwat,
I am in the same situation as you were before.
Planning to send my wife back to our country to give birth.
Would like to know how did you go with bringing your newborn to Australia?
How long did it take for the process?

Thanks.

Hi,
You need to apply child visa 101 for your child to bring back to Australia. I applied still awaiting for the approval.
If your baby born here, he/she became AU citizen straight away.

Thanks Angorwat.
Does that mean the child will not be able to come to australia till 'child visa 101' is approved?

Yes, the alternative may be apply for child visa which takes 6 to 12 months to approve during this time you can bring the child to Aus on visitor visa if you need.
