I NEED YOU HELP AND ADVICE PLEASE.
I currently hold a 457 Sponsored work visa here in Australia.
When I applied for my 457 Work Visa, I applied for my 1 year old daughter and my wife who was 3 months pregnant at the time and in 3 months the 3 of us were granted the 457 visa. I went to Australia right away leaving my pregnant wife and child in the philippines.
Here is my dilema. My wife gave birth 2 months ago. At the time of her birth i consulted the Travel agent who worked on our 457 visa and I he informed me that I would need to reapply the visa for my new child. This ment having to pay him $1800AU for that. IS THAT RIGHT??? COULDN'T MY NEW BORN BE ABLE TO APPLY AND COME INTO THE COUNTRY WITH MY WIFE'S VISA?
I HOPYOU GUYS COULD HELP ME BECAUSE i WOULD LOVE TO SEE AND MEET MY NEW BABY BOY. I HAVE CURRENTLY LEFT HIM IN THE PHILIPPINES AND MY WIFE IS IN THE COUNTRY WITH ME AT THE MOMENT. I would like to ask advise on what steps I should take and where I should go.
Thank you so much.
Good day to all..
