Child born overseas to an Australia citizen

Hi, I am an Australian citizen and my wife is Japanese. She is planning to go to Japan to deliver our first baby. My question is, If the baby come to Australia using a Japanese passport with Electronic Travel Authority (subclass 601), can I apply for Australian citizenship by descent for the baby later?

Hi Westly, Thanks for the reply.

My concern is that if the baby come to Australia using her Japanese passport she will enter Australia on a visitor visa. Then I can apply for her Australian citizenship. But I am concerned because the visitor visa on her Japanese passport will expire and it will look like she overstayed the visa in her Japanese passport.

Any idea on how to handle this situation is most welcome :-)

You can apply for Citizenship by decent then Australian Passport while they are in Japan (not sure of process time/s)

I assume if travelled on Japanese Passport after citizenship application a bridging visa would be granted.

From Canada here...
Our children are young also.
We applied June 13 and received a 'finalised' update on the system today for Citizenship by Descent applications... It doesn't seem to take too long.

All the best with the arrival of your new bubby

Hi cbr2011,

Thanks. So it seems like it takes more than a month (13 June to 23 July). Not 3 weeks as mentioned in the immigration website ?

Thanks for the response :-)

We applied for Citizenship by Descent for two kids March 23 and the status changed to Finalised April 23rd. It took another week to receive their certificates in the mail.

We applied for citizenship by decent for our new born on 14th July 2017 and received the email confirming that the citizenship application is approved today (25 July 2017). Now need to apply for a passport.
