My newborn is a Ukraine citizen and I'm Australian citizen.

Intending to travel to Australia on a visitors visa (family sponsor) on my own without their mother to visit my family in Australia and in the same time while in Australia apply for Australian citizenship by descent while in Australian.

I've heard must visitor visa has a 8503 - no longer stay condition, and from boarder.gov.au website it states I can't apply for another visa.

But just wondered if applying for visa by descent is different to a visa.

Thought it would be easier to apply for citizenship for my newborn in Australia than in Ukraine.

Thanks in advance

8503 means "The holder will not, after entering Australia, be entitled to be granted a substantive visa, other than a protection visa, while the holder remains in Australia."

So, the holder is restricted to apply for another visa but no issue to apply citizenship by descent.
