Child Visa 101 UK processing times

Hey,

I am currently waiting for my child visa 101 (offshore-uk) visa to be finalised, and was curious to know if anyone has applied for this visa recently and how long it actually took for it to be finalised?

I was told child visa 101 visa applications can take 7-8 months from lodgement date at the London office, but they said they will try to finalise it earlier than that. My medicals and police checks were requested in early September 2011, and sent September 2011, so everything is pretty much done, if they stick to 7-8 months i might not hear anything till March/April. Hmmm.

There's alot of timelines for family visas on this site, but mainly spouse/partner visas, and very few for child visas, so it would be interesting to know how long they are actually taking on average!

Please update your flag here .

I'm about to apply for 1 in Singapore. On the child migration checklist for the Australian high comm here in Singapore it says 3-6 mths to process 75% of the applications for subclass 101 and 445. The other thing I'm in Singapore now and planning to go to aus early next year. It does mention in the application that you need to be outside australia when the visa is approved. Do you have any info on exceptions to that rule? Do I need to resubmit another once I am in Australia again to change it to a subclass 102?

3-6 months doesn't sound too bad! Maybe Singapore doesn't have a big stack of applications compared to London!

It depends what situation you are in, do you live in Singapore permanently at the moment? Or have you been living in Australia temporary?

The child visa 101 (offshore) is for those who live in another country, but you have to be studying there, only working part time, and financially dependent on your parents in Australia (to be classed as 'dependent'). The child visa 802 (onshore) is for those living in Australia at the moment (temporary) who are studying, only working part time and must also be financially dependent on your parents in Australia.

Therefore if you apply for the 101 (offshore) you have to be 'offshore' for the visa to be granted, but while the visa is being processed you can travel to Australia, you just have to let your Case Officer know so they can alert you to travel out of Australia when the visa is ready to be granted. Say if you are already living temporary in Australia for some reason (i.e a student visa) and you want to remain permanently, then apply for an 802 (onshore), and you have to be onshore (in Australia to receive it).

As far as i know these 2 types of child visa are the only ones. But you can still travel to Australia, as i said, just let your Case Officer know
