Pregnant on WHV whilst partner visa pending


I have a pending 309 partner visa due to be granted in October. I am in Australia on a Working Holiday Visa. I've already had my medicals, and would be about 6 or so months gone at the time the 309 is likely to be granted (so can still travel abroad). So I wouldn't be breaching the 'no dependents' condition of the WHV, and would be covered by medicare throughout.

Is all that correct?

As long as the baby isn't born in Australia while you're on a WHV, you wouldn't breach the no dependents condition. If the timing works in your favour so you can travel overseas briefly when the 309 is ready to be granted, you could then return to activate the visa, the Medicare would remain (I'd suggest you contact them to update your visa information), and you could have your baby in Australia.
