Child's Visa

Hi to all...

please help me understand ...

if a baby is born outside Australia & if the parents (one of the parent is an Aussie citizen by descent) wanna bring the baby to Australia, it's the 101 form that has to be filled up right? besides that form, is there any other forms that need to filled up also? form 47CH (sponsorship for a child to migrate to Australia), form 40CH (Application for migration to Australia by a child)??

can the baby be brought to Australia on a tourist visa & apply for the visa inside Australia?

The more i read & search, the more i found so many things & the more i get confused & anxious...

thanks to anyone who can help explain to me...

Depending on the immigration history of the Australian citizen parent, it might be possible to apply for citizenship by descent for the child. May I suggest that you consult one of registered migration agents who posts on this forum?

I've never stayed in Australia & I've to stay in Australia for two years before the child can apply for citizenship by descent...

In that case, take advice about subclass 101 and other possible strategies.

Hi. I’ve applied for an offshore partner visa for my long-term partner and included our child (8 months old) as an additional applicant on his application. I think it cost an extra $700 or so. Only lodged in June, so haven’t heard anything yet

A Subclass 101 Child visa costs from $2,665, according to https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visa...ting/child-101

But if added to a 309 visa application, it is quoted as an extra $1,935 added to the prime applicants cost of $7,715. According to https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visa...cing-estimator

It does look confusing, with $700 mentioned by MelbourneOrBust!, and I assume you have seen it as no cost somewhere?

at that time i was just filling up the 1022 form (change of circumstances) to inform about my new born baby...new born baby doesn't have to pay anything if i'm not mistaken...

i updated about my new born in October 2018 & now she's almost 11 months old..meaning to say, my husband lodged the application in June 2018 & i gave birth to my daughter in September 2018...

thanks

I can understand the confusion... I've been looking at that and am somewhat confused myself now.

I read this at: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/chan...ion/had-a-baby
A baby who may be eligible for Australian citizenship (but has not yet acquired Australian citizenship by descent) can travel on a visa to Australia on a passport issued by another country.
This may be done as long as the baby is not confirmed by us to be an Australian citizen.
You could consider bringing the baby to Australia on a visitor visa, for example.

and
Your baby's stay in Australia must remain lawful. If the baby's visa is due to expire before we grant them citizenship by descent, you must either:
consider another visa option for your baby to lawfully stay in Australia OR
take the baby outside Australia.


I would suggest checking with a migration agent on this, but I used that calculator, and basing it on you not being a qualifying citizen for giving citizenship by descent (parent will need to have spent at least a cumulative period of 2 years lawfully in Australia before you apply), then it might be this answer that applies:

Travelling to Australia with your baby
If you wish to bring your baby to Australia as a permanent resident, you may want to consider:
  • applying for a Child (subclass 101) visa for your baby. Your baby must be outside Australia when:
    • you apply for the Child visa
    • we make a decision on your baby's Child visa application
  • adding your baby as a dependent on an application for a Partner visa or Prospective Marriage visa if the permanent resident parent intends to sponsor the baby's other parent to come to Australia on one of these two visas.
Alternatively, if you wish to bring your baby to Australia, temporarily explore visa options for your baby.

Cost
Applying for a Child visa or adding your baby to a new application for a Partner or Prospective Marriage visa requires the payment of a visa application charge.
I am glad it is not me in that situation, but I feel I would go with adding the on to the partner visa.

The child will need a visa of some sort, to enter Australia, and 'MelbourneOrBust!' seems to have done it that way.

i have to apologize for making you confused...actually i'm looking forward to have a second baby & most probably if that happens, i will have to deliver the baby in Malaysia & bring the baby to Australia (have to settle my things first then go to Australia)...I believe it will be different if i deliver the baby in Australia...

and if that happens, i need to think on how to bring the baby to Australia & what type of visa to apply for, or should i just bring the baby to Australia & apply the visa there...it seems that i have the answer now, the baby can just be brought to Australia & apply the visa there...

as for my first baby, she's already out of the question, because she's already attached to my husband's visa application...

thanks so much for your help & explanation
