Getting pregnant while partner visa in process and evisitor in effect!!!

Hi Everyone,

Here is my story;

After getting married my wife applied for partner visa(309) online from offshore in August 2017.Then applied evisitor(652)to get back to Oz together with the knowledge of consulate(so they know why we applied evisitor for) and approved.Now she has got 3 months each arrival entry visa for 12 months which will be expired in september 2018.
We have spend 3 days in New Zealand for 3 months visa rule and came back without any problem.
In our 4th months of partner visa process we required to attempt health examination by our case officer and noticed she is pregnant at the same week.There is no way she can get Chest x-ray because risk of harm baby.

-What would happen in that case?
-In case of she keep staying here is she able to benefit from medicare for pregnancy and baby delivery period?(partner visa 309)
-Her visa will expire a month before giving birth.Is that a reasonable situation to extend her tourist visa without leaving?

She is a switzerland citizen

Many thanks in advance.
Looking forward to hear all advises if anyone experienced same kind of situation

She is eligible for Medicare as she has applied for a permanent partner visa when she made the 309/100 application.

A decision can't be made on her partner visa without the medical being completed, so the pregnancy will cause a delay in the processing of the partner visa.

I have no idea about extending her tourist visa but I would suggest you consult a registered migration agent to avoid making any mistakes. I wouldn't risk trying to do this on my own and risk becoming unlawful or having to leave the country and then organize the birth elsewhere, but that's just my opinion.

It is my understanding that one must have a valid visa to have access to Medicare so I would assume that if she overstayed her visa then she would also lose access to Medicare. I could be wrong though... I'm no expert on the matter but an RMA would be.

You'd have to discuss with the CO that requested the medical but I don't think it would if it wasn't done for the purpose of the partner visa.

I also would have a chat with a RMA - this maybe the only time I can see a voluntary "E" as a valid option.

Hi,Just to make sure, so, even if you are on tourist visa here in Australia but have applied for 309/100, waiting to get 309 you are eligible for Medicare?

Yes 100% you can get Medicare on a Visitor Visa waiting for a 309, just some Medicare staff need to be informed so if they refuse ask for a senior person or try another branch.
