Bridging visa after giving birth

Hello,

The situation we have is a de-facto couple living together in Aus. The female is on a 1 yr tourist visa (with no further stay) so will need to leave australia shortly after she gives birth at the end of April. Obviously they are applying for a de-facto visa offshore once she returns to her country (for her to be able to return with baby to live in aus). Just wondering which type of bridging visa application she would submit to request some further weeks to stay in aus for medical reasons following child birth (after her tourist visa is expired).

Thanks

Bridging Visas are only applicable from one visa to an onshore visa and so with a NFS applying that option really does not exist.

I'm not aware if there is an official Immi view on flights for new very young babies but there is some information online that would suggest whilst there is no reason a baby could not fly at one week of age, a minimum of a month would be better for it'll allow:
. Any underlying health issues if present to have developed for diagnosis.
. Baby to be better settled with routine
And there is also some thought that the younger babies are going to be much more prone to contracting any contagious bugs floating about in the aircraft.

You may want to get a doctors letter to cover why it is not best for baby to fly before a particular age and approach Immi with a view to a waiver of the NFS so as a further tourist visa can be applied for or perhaps even be included as a defacto onshore if the situation allows.
Australian Immigration Fact Sheet 52b. Waiving Visa Condition 8503 - "No Further Stay"

I'd be doing that immediately and then if there is no waiver of the NFS you'll need to still make departure arrangements.
If of course birth falls right on your just days before departure is due, you'll have further reason to seek a review of any negative NFS decision.
