Baby born offshore

Hi Everyone,

I am australian citizen, I had applied for my spouse visa 309 last year.
We recently have a baby still overseas with mother while I am here in Australia.
Can someone please tell me whether I need to add my baby to my wife visa application or I just need to inform immi by filling form 1022 change of circumstances and then apply directly for my baby Citizenship by decent in a separate account.
any help will be highly appreciated.

We applied for citizenship by descent

Hi,
My husband is australian, we applied for a partner visa for me. For our little baby born offshore we applied for citizenship by descent.
We received a positive answer really quickly (approximatively a month).

@ nanagraffe

Thanks a lot for clarification. I will apply for my daughter citizenship soon, I saw the online form it was really simple.

I am in much the same situation as you folks.
PMV 300 applied for July 2019 and still waiting for decision after completing her visa application in September 2019.
Meanwhile our son was born in August in Thailand.
As I am Australian by birth I have applied for Australian by Descent (AbD) on 28 September for him.
After only 3 weeks they have asked for written consent from the mother - second time this "Immi request after leaving" has happened to me the day after I left Thailand!!

To answer adnan's question, you should not add the child to the wife's visa application. Only form 1022 required
If you use your immi account just create a new AbD application and upload his photos, proof of identity etc.
AND consent of the non Australian parent - this is why came back at me the day after I left Thailand.

Be aware that once the citizenship is granted the certificate needs to be sighted/scanned by DFAT
AND the passport applied for in the country where the baby is - another trip to Thailand for me!
Takes 3 weeks for the first passport as fast track only available for subsequent passports.
Be also aware that once citizenship has been granted the baby cannot travel to Australia on the birth country's passport
Must have Aus passport

All the above has been discovered after numerous phone calls to DFAT and Immi while I was in Thailand
Thank goodness Optus have a unlimited calls while roaming in Thailand now for $50 per month
worth every $ otherwise $1.80 per minute!!

So the citizenship certificate takes about a month and the passport the same so about two months to have the baby ready for travel to Australia
But of course still waiting for the PMV 300

Just an update on my case.
I applied for my baby citizenship by descent more than a month ago, it is still showing further assessment.

Hi adnan78,

It took about a month to process in Thailand. Like all these visas etc the host country actions the request - not in Australia.
They are either busy with other work or there are some documents to check before they contact you.
Nothing to do but be patient

I applied for CBD on 25th September and on 18th October they requested a letter of parental consent from the mother in Thailand as we are not married yet.
Once I satisfied this the application was granted on 30th October.
It took another 3 weeks for the certificate to arrive at my Australian address by ordinary registered post from Thailand.
I will apply for the passport in Thailand on the 2nd December and it takes about 3 weeks. Take all your original documents to the Embassy

Note I supplied a guarantor statement for the Citizenship application from the Doctor who delivered our baby.
DFAT then required an almost identical statement for the passport application.
Luckily I was able to obtain this by email/print/scan/email as our Doctor is not in Bangkok.
