Baby born offshore (VISA 457)

Hi There !

I am working in MEL since Nov 08 under VISA 457. My wife delivered a baby off shore Dec 09. The baby's VISA is under processing and I am assuming I will get the approval details, VISA Grant number etc through email.

The location where the baby is put up right now is quite far from the location where Australian Embassy is (15 hours of travel). My question is - Is it possible to enter Australia with the approval details printed out along with the passport? or should I get my wife to visit Australian Embassy to have the label affixed to the baby's passport?

I called the help line twice but I didn't get a clear answer. Any advise is deeply appreciated. Many thanks.

Once a visa is granted, as well as getting the confirmation advice the details will be entered into the Immigration computer system.

I cannot say for sure but it may not be necessary to have the sticker put in before travel as a scan of the passport will also indicate the visa having been granted.

Another alternative will be to post the passport in and there should be some advice about what to do when you do get confirmation.

Thanks a lot for a prompt response Wanderer. Let me await for the VISA to come in.
