Did you guys tried to sort out the childcare subsidy for your children from centrelink.
What makes me very pissed that my sponsor can't get child care subsidy as I'm here with her in Sydney on a visitor 600.. like I have to be overseas so they can pay subsidy for her .. i think as I'm on a visitor visa and choose to be with my family and provide help made me throw my personal life out of the window .. and it's not fair for my wife not to get any childcare subsidy because I'm here with her .. of course I'm here but I can't work and I can't study !
It's very annoying

When did you apply for your visa? What's the status on the application end? I think if it says status approved from the sponsor then now they'll start looking at your application.

That's weird - are you waiting on a visa 309? If so you can work on that, right? And CCS is based on activity you and your partner do and the income you both earn. Unless you're earning above 180k per year her subsidy will be minimal. The visitor visa shouldn't be the factor impacting on her receiving subsidy.
Did she sponsor you on a tourist visa and a visa 309 at the same time?

I was studying here in Sydney and while I'm studying we got married and we didn't lodge our application that time till almost two years in marriage she came to live with me in Jordan for a year and this was the time we lodged our 309/100 from jordan in march2019. In july2019 i got granted visitor600 12 months, 6 months on each arrival
She was my sponsor and my father too. But the thing is that I don't work, I do have Medicare I never use alhamdullah but what they say is that we dont pay anything for her childcare as I'm on a visitor visa here and I would be taking care of her by my own while my wife at work. Even though I'm Jordanian and my daughter is Australian and she got her citizenship bydecent in april2019. And she is fully ready to go to child care it's very unfair.

How is it unfair when it is the same as 2 citizens?
For child care if one parent is at home (regardless of citizenship or visa status) then there is no child care rebates. Why would there be when one parent is at home able to cater for the child?
I'm a citizen and my wife has PR. I work full-time and we are only eligible if my wife is working, studying or volunteering.
I work from home 2 days a week and look after our son those days to help make it viable.
Seeing you are subject to the same conditions as a citizen I really don't understand how it is unfair.
If you are referring to you want the child to go to daycare for social and learning side of things then fair enough, like a citizen you can go and volunteer at a charity.

I would tell you why it's unfair, because as a young parent you need to work your life out especially in a foreign country, you need to work your a** off to be able to cope with what is coming and what you planned for!

When it comes to what I can provide as a parent is different to what what the care institutions would provide for children ( socialising, games, personal development and many more )!
On tbe other hand I wish I can be able to provide for my family and make things better

@MQadi - you said you dont work? so ofcourse you wouldnt get CCS... you would be expected to look after your child. These ccentrelink benefits are not for 'free' - that is all taxpayers money, and as a tax paying born breed Australian! I would not want to see my money being wasted on parents who just choose to have their child/ren in care b/c of the subsidies we pay! check up- local council run playgroups, im sure your child will get all the social development thy need through that.
Please do not 'ditch' the AUS government! Your attitude is not viable. I wouldn't complain too much - atleast your with your child and partner!

I don't work because I'm not allowed to!
When I was student here for almost 3 years I was working and paying tax and everything was going great .. also I was paying heaps of money for my education 50k per year. Also my wife works and been working for 5 years here and been paying tax. Whom ever thinks its free we all know who they are and check how many ppl scammed centrelink and what is there background.
Alhamdullah I'm with my family but as a man who worked very hard in his life and on his education i expect to get a right to work too so i can progress in both professional and normal life.
No one is ditching on the government as you claimed and i can see who is the one with attitude here.

Be more respectful to people this is all what I can say.

Oh wow that's awesome!! Holidays have surely come early for you! Let's hope we get approved in the new year!

Our agent advised us not to apply for 600, as much finance currently isn't working in Lebanon 😞 and the situation isn't great - so technically he has no incentive to go back and would thus be refused 😞

Did you apply for tourist one alone or through the agent? I don't see why they didn't just approve your 309? What additional information did you give to support your tourist one? And how many months was it approved for?

I'm really hopeful now to apply for my fiancé as he your wife is from Lebanon too!

600 granted this morning
