Child Visa 101-Delay

Hi All,
I have applied for child visa (subclass 101) on 31st December 2013 and till now I guess even case officer is not assigned. I need to travel to Oz by first week of June cause of my work commitments, what are my options if child visa is not granted till then? Can I apply for visitor visa for my 20 month old baby ? My wife and I'm having GSM 175. Quick help and guidance will be really appreciated.
Regards
AB

I assume a tourist visa would be the right approach. Let DIBP know about your travel plans so they can notify you when the child visa is due to be granted as you'll need to take the baby outside Australia in order for the visa to be granted.

Thanks Maggie,
I have already mailed my travel plans along with tickets to embassy but unfortunately CO is not yet assigned to my case. I'm hoping being from India which is classified as HR country visitor visa application should not get impacted.

Hi Ambh,

Is the CO assigned for your application? We applied for child visa in Feb, but till now no CO has been assigned. I spoke to the HC and they said it is going to take 25 weeks from date of application.

Thanks

Hi,
We are in a similar situation. We got our PR validated last year August and have been in India since then. Our baby girl was born in India last year December. We lodged child visa 101 for her in May 2014.

We are planning to travel to Australia in August 2014 and planning to apply for a 12 month visitor visa for our daughter. CO is not yet assigned for 101 visa, can we apply for visitor visa without notifying the CO?

Our daughter will be travelling with us, can we be the sponsors in this case? Will this fall into the family sponsored visa category?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Its always advisable to inform the CO if you are planning to apply for a tourist visa. You will anyways have to inform your CO as your residence address would change.
I am not sure about your second question. I think its visitors visa 600.

Thank you so much for responding!

Current timelines for CO allocation in India are 25 weeks and we are planning to travel to Australia in the next 12 weeks.
Can we write to the embassy regarding our travel visa and residence change until the CO is assigned?

As for the second question, we will be applying for visitor visa 600. In that we have seperate forms 1419 or 1418, 1418 is for family sponsored visa. Since I and my spouse hold PRs we were wondering if we should be using form 1418.

Thanks!

Hi,

You can always write to them.. In fact we wrote to them recently as CO is still not assigned and we might have to travel to US for few months. They have forwarded our request for assignment of CO to the concerned department. Its been almost two weeks but no action till date.

I and my wife hold PR too and we are planning to move in January next year. We will be also be applying for tourist visa for our daughter. But as of now no idea about these forms. Need to check.

Which city are you planning to move?

Thanks

Hi,
We are planning to move to Melbourne. We will be applying for the tourist visa in the next few days, will write to them about our plan.

How many weeks have passed since you lodged the visa?

Thanks!
