Baby Bonus on Temp. partnervisa?

Hi

I was just wondering...

- Do you get Baby Bonus if you are on a temp. partnervisa?

It says that you need to be "the holder of a permanent resident visa"


- Also can anyone tell me if you are pregnant on the temp. partner visa, what is covered by medicare etc....or any expenses you wouldn't know about, help you can get or other good tips?

Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Thank you :-)

Hi -

For the Baby Bonus you need to show that you reside in Australia - there's a special provision where you can apply for this if you are the holder of a provisional partner visa (subclass 820) - for more info:

Baby Bonus

Check out "Residency Requirements" and "Eligibility" for more info.

Best to speak to Medicare directly about specific benefits available for provisional partner visa holders - better to use the term "provisional partner visa" rather than "temporary" for accuracy. Medicare does provide benefits to provisional partner visa holders, not sure about limitations that would apply, if any.

Best,

Mark Northam

Sorry to bring this thread up again, but this is a matter that is on my partner and mine's minds right now.
I tried calling Government services yesterday and today, but the international number they provide only deals with Child Support.

I am Aussie citizen, my wife will hopefully be on a subclass 600 before bridging to a TR 820 partner Visa.

Our baby is 4 months old and will just be under the 26 weeks cut off when we return to Aus in March.

Will she be able to get the baby bonus??

The main reason we haven't returned already is because of having our oldest daughter in school until the beginning of March.

Don't know about her, but there is nothing stopping you claiming it.
Remember though there is a cut off date.

Cheers Steve,

That's why I'm trying to get back before 26 weeks.

Am I right with this?
Baby needs to be in Australia before 26 weeks.
And you must claim BB within 52 weeks.

It was a bit confusing on the website.

If you wife is the primary care taker she cannot claim it as she does not have the appropriate visa granted. If you are the primary care taker as an Australian citizen you can claim it but you would need to be back in Australia by 26 weeks.

What defines "primary carer"?
We live together and share the parenting duties.

You would need to contact Centrelink to get their answer but at a guess I would say it is the one who cares for them the most ie. if you worked 3 days and your wife 2 days then your wife would be the primary care taker.

Also a quick question ... how long have you been living outside of Australia?

Thanks for the reply Mish, I've been living in Thailand for nearly 4 years.
However. I am an Australian Citizen so that shouldn't count should it?
We have all intentions of living in in Australia. I can even get a written job offer to prove it.

I've tried to get Centrelink by phone and no luck- the OS number on the website doesn't call through.

So I guess I'll just try to apply anyway- nothing to loose right?

I believe that you have to have not lived outside of Australia for more than the last 3 years.

If you apply and you don't qualify they will knock it back anyway.
