Requirement for PCC and Medical for a Child not included in the Application

Good evening.

We applied for a 309 visa for my partner in India. We included one of her children in the application. The other child is 17, and is wanting to complete his studies in India. We got a passport for the child who is wanting to travel, but we did not get a passport for the 17 year old.

Our case officer pushing us to get his PCC and Medical to be done. However he is not included in the application and will not be applying for at least another 2 years. Is this a standard practice, and does anyone else have experience in this area. My partner is annoyed that the immigration department is pressuring her to include the 17 year old in her application, when neither he, or his mother wants it to happen.

It does depend on circumstances, however, if you have indicated that the child will ultimately seek to migrate, as you suggest here, then it is usual that they will want health (and police) checks completed.

Thank you for your answer. He doesn't want to be included in the application. His mother doesn't want to apply for his passport because she wants him to do it himself when he turns 18 in 5 months time. They want him to complete most of his studies in India, and consider his options in a couple of years time. I am just curious if any one else is in this position and how they have dealt with it. It is being dealt with in India.

You have no choice. You either obtain the public interesst documents (police and medical) for your 17 year old, or risk a visa refusal. It might pay you to take professional advice about posssible visa strategies for this child.
