Citizenship by birth

Hi guys,
i have a Permanent Residency Visa (subclass 175) in Australia since August 2012. I visited Australia once for one week in the same month.
Now my wife is pregnant and coming to Australia on visit visa (class 600) for delivery. Is our baby eligible for citizenship by birth?
according to my research, he should be eligible since one of his parents has PR.
is this the case? or because i didn't actually settle in Australia, i am not considered as Australian Permanent Resident?


Thanks alot for your help!

If you were born in Australia on or after the 20 August 1986 to an Australian citizen or permanent resident parent, you became an Australian citizen at birth. No application for citizenship is required.(Australian Citizenship €“ Becoming an Australian Citizen)

You should be aware , your wife is not eligible for a Medicare and she will pay for a child birth. Unless she has a good insurance, she will pay thousands of dollars in medical costs.

Plus an airline, that takes a pregnant woman on board.

You need to go to immigration to get a label in your paper stating you are PR so that your baby can apply for citizenship. You need to be able to prove you were PR at days of birth and they won't take any electronic communication as proof

You do not have to. use form 119 to apply for evidence of
Australian citizenship - they take their own electronic documents.

I have as well :-) Didn't remember you replied though. But Mish has replied to you as well - they are not accepting the electronic grant as a proof. I think it's a question of better be safe than sorry

Helen, you apply to DIBP for an evidence of Australian citizenship. This is completely different story than applying for an Australian passport at post office.

OK - I am not familiar with this! As long as you won't be in trouble it's all good
