Hi,

What visa are you planning to/have you applied for? Are you in or out of Australia?

You should definately, in fact you have to, tell immigration about your change in circumstances. It will help your case that a child is due, so let them know immediately (with a doctor's report saying you are pregnant).

It's called a lead shield, here is the official information:

http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/160.pdf
The department does not recommend that a pregnant visa applicant undergoes a chest x-ray. This is because there is a risk that a chest x-ray could harm the unborn child. It is recommended that a pregnant visa applicant defers her chest x-ray, and therefore the decision on her visa application, until after the child’s birth. A pregnant visa applicant should firstly contact the department to discuss her options, including the possible deferral of her visa application.

If a pregnant visa applicant is prepared to undergo a chest x-ray, it is recommended that she consults with her doctor before arranging her appointment for a chest x-ray and that special precautions are taken (eg. using a protective lead shield and waiting until at least the second trimester). A pregnant visa applicant must sign the declaration on page 4 before undergoing a chest x-ray.

Hi, I would like to know what happend with your visa.. I too have a similar situation, I have applied but still the visa is not granted or medicals requested, but I do not want to take a x-ray. Can I ask the case officer to delay the visa until the baby is born and include the baby too in the application?
Thanks

You can ask your doctor to issue a letter regarding your situation as this is apply to my wife as well. They will hold the visa till you deliver your baby.

Thanks, Can you then include the new born baby as well in the application or do we need to apply a child visa?
