Child PR - minimise separation from parent(s) child born overseas to Aus PR parents

Hi,

Having a child after years of trying gives one loads of happiness only to set on a painful and long waiting journey to get the child back home with you if the child is born overseas.

Any suggestions or experience to share about the fastest way to get to Australia a child born overseas to Australian PR parents both living and working in Australia.

1. Apply 101 offshore and wait out the decision offshore (the most painful due to long wait times)
2. Apply 101 offshore and then tourist to wait out the decision onshore at least partially
3. Apply visitor and then 802 onshore - is this even possible?
4. Any other way to minimise long separation of the infant from parent(s)?

Note: This should not be a complication but more of additional information that the child was born through surrogacy.

Any suggestion/experience to share, well appreciated.

Regards,
nilghat

What you might have to do to get your child to Australia depends principally on the laws of country where the surrogacy was undertaken and the terms of the surrogacy.

It is likely that none of the strategies you have mentioned are optimal.

May I suggest that you consult a registered migration agent for advice about your possible strategies?

I would assume surrogacy would make the immigration process more complicated but perhaps it depends on where you are at in the surrogacy process. I would suggest you speak to a migration agent to see what additional information or documents you may need to provide and what would be the best strategy to proceed.

Thanks wrussell and Maggie-May24 for your replies.

As far the surrogacy is concerned the child is already born and the necessary paperwork obtained. There is no specific requirement for providing surrogacy documents as part of the checklist / required documents for Child PR. But I have based my documentation on the checklist of surrogacy documents for Citizenship by descent application as it has a section for surrogacy. I intend to provide these documents with the Child PR application upfront even though it is not specifically asked.
Hence I thought that surrogacy should not complicate the matter.

Having said that, I haven't seen a very clear path of getting the child to Australia fastest and minimize the separation of the child either from me or my wife as one of us will always need to remain offshore to care for the child if we cannot get the child into the country while the PR visa is processed. And this affects the lives of all three of us for a very long time.
