Child Visa 101

Hi Guys
Myself and my wife got our australian PR in 2013 but we did not move then. Now i am planning to be there in May 2016. We have a daughter who born after our visa grant, for her i have to apply Child visa 101.

The problem is i want to be there in May 2016 however the Child 101 visa takes 14 months. What other options do we have? to be there as per our plans along with our daughter? Can i apply a visit visa for her after applying for 101 (but DIBP say on their website that "The child must be outside Australia when the application is lodged and when the application is decided.")?

Please help!

You can apply for a visitor visa for your daughter, and then make sure to let DIBP know your travel plans. They would contact you when the child visa is ready to be granted and you then need to take your daughter overseas (can be on a short holiday to NZ for example) until the child visa is granted.

You can apply onshore for a child visa. The strategy to adopt depends largely on the child's nationality. May I suggest that you consult a registered migration agent for advice about strategy?

From your previous post you are from Saudi Arabia, is that your babies nationality too? You will need to apply for a subclass 600 for the child (depending on their nationality). I am not sure how they process visa's for babies but if an adult was from Saudi there would be a high risk of the visa being rejected. Not sure about a baby though.

Best to consult with a registered migration agent regarding this.
