(Update) Adding dependent child to approved 300

Is this possible (as per title) or do we have to wait for the 820 application to add a dependent?

We are just deciding on what to do with the boy at this stage, he is 12.

Cheers.

You can't add the child to a sc. 300 visa that has already been granted. I take it the child was included as a non-migrating dependent ?

A dependent child can be included with sc. 820 application, but the child would need to be in Australia on some other visa without "no further stay" condition.

A dependent child can be added to your sc. 820 application after it is lodged but before the temporary Partner visa (subclass 820) is decided, but the child would need to be in Australia on some other visa without "no further stay" condition.

A dependent child can be added to your application after your temporary Partner visa (subclass 820) is granted but before the permanent Partner visa (subclass 801) is decided. In that case the child must first be granted a Dependent Child visa (subclass 445), which will let them stay in Australia or come to Australia if they are overseas.

Thankyou for the advice, we have something to go on.

We will first get a 600 for a visit and see what the conditions are, we have to get married first.

Yes he was included as a non migrating dependent.

Just an update on this.

Today we received a 1 year multi entry 600 for the child.

No 8503 condition which is also great news.

We can now add him to the 820 application after we get married.

Does the child get a bridging visa after the application is submitted?

Regards

If the child makes a valid application for the sc, 820 visa, he'll get a BVA. I have heard of instances where Department staff have refused to add children to a sc. 820 visa, because apparently they don't understand their own rules...

Make sure to allow plenty of time for this, because you will have to lodge a paper application.

Really!, not online?

We're not sure if we do this while applying, after 820 submitted, or after 820 granted.

It's only a paper application if the sc. 820 has already been lodged. You should be able to include the child in an application that has not been lodged yet.
