      1. Child Visa 101

        Finally I am able to put together some sort of information about Child Visa application. This is not comprehensive guide, this is just what I did for my daughters visa last year. Introduction: Child Visa is a permanent residency visa for the children of Australian permanent residents. This is a paper application and cannot be done online at the moment. The process and documentation required are quite simple. I am just listing out what I did and what documents I submitted. This does not cover complex cases like divorce or non migrating parent cases. People who have information about the same can contribute to the thread. Forms Required to be filled out: 1. 47CH - Application for migration This is a straightforward form where you enter all the information about your child. Answer the questions as you understand. Don't over complicate things. 2. 40CH - Sponsorship for a child to Migrate This form as the name indicates is the information about the parent who is sponsoring the child. 3. Form 1229 - Consent to grant an Australian visa to a child under the age of 18 years This form needs to be submitted along with the above two application forms even if both the parents are migrating along with the child. Both migrating parents have to sign this form. If you have complex cases like divorce etc, you might need to include other documentation such as proof of legal custody, Stat declaration from the non migrating parent etc. I don't have much information on that so will not be including that information as part of this instruction. People with experience can share their thoughts on the same. Supporting Documents 1. Two passport size photograph of the child (Please follow the instructions on the immi website for instructions) - This is the hardest bit if you have an infant. Our daughter was just two weeks old when we tried to take her picture. It was really difficult as she wouldn't open her eyes for the camera (understandably so ). The best method is put a white cloth on a table or a bed, make him/her lie down and take a picture. This is what we did. I don't think immigration could be too strict about a photograph of a few weeks old baby. 2. Copy of Baby's passport - So after the baby is born you would need to apply for the passport obviously. This is needed before you can apply for the child visa. 3. Payment for the visa - This is the tricky part. This differs by the country, so you would be better off looking at the following page to see what type of payment Australian high commission accepts. In India it was either cash or Demand Draft. 4. Birth Certificate - This is required for the application as a proof that you are the legal parent of the child. Copy of the birth certificate needs to be submitted along with the application. 5. Proof that the sponsor is a permanent resident/Photo ID of sponsor and spouse - This can be proved by copy of your passport. I included the grant letter also along with the passport copies of my wife and I. 6. Proof of Funds - Included 3 months of bank statement. There isn't any specific amount mentioned on the DIBP website. There may be other documentation required if your child is adopted or step child etc. Please review the DIBP requirement for the same. You need to submit all the above documentation along with the required payment to DIBP and then wait for the VO to contact you for further instructions. Depending on which country you are applying in you need to find out the application submission process. In India we needed to go to the VFS location to submit the application in person. In India, postal submission is not accepted, so we needed to go to our local VFS office to personally submit the documents. Once the VO picks up your application you will be asked for the following: 1. Police checks for both you and your spouse - This will be for any country you resided for more than 12 months in the last 10 years. We lived int he USA, so had to provide the FBI clearance. 2. Medicals for your child - This is very simple process, you can find panel physicians from the DIBP website and provide the HAPID to book an appointment. It took just few minutes to complete the process at the doctor's office. Once we submitted all the required documents, the grant was immediate. The day when we sent the final document, we got the grant notice on the same day. The overall process took just over a month for us. The delay was only from our side as we had to try and get FBI check done from overseas and it took some time. Getting appointment with a panel physician took time and then there was Christmas/New Year break. So I would consider the overall process to be less than a month for us. This is from my experience and what I did for my daughters Child Visa, people can correct or add anything I may have missed out. It has been 7 months since I did this and I am trying to recollect as much I could in putting this up. This post has been promoted to an article

      3. My Father wants me to apply for a Child Visa Migration Subclass 101. I am already 24 years Old and a recent graduate of a 4 year college degree. One of the main requirements for the visa is I should be attending in the school as a full time student. If I will enroll for a Masters degree, is it considered as a full time student in my visa application. Thanks in Advance.
      4. Hi I am applying for a 101 visa for my youngest son. He was born after the rest of the family had obtained & validated our PR visas. So unfortunately we have to go through the complicated process of getting him is own PR. I was wondering if anyone else had doen this themselves recently? I have the 40CH and 47CH forms filled in. I am the sponsor as I was the main applicant on our original visas. My question is does my husband (also childs father) need to complete form 1229 to say he has parental responsibility? We are a straight forward family unit (1st marriage for both and 2 of our own childen) and are all emmigrating together. Both of out names are on the child's birth cerftificate. On reading the 40CH form it looks like my husband does need to fill out a 1229 form but when I downloaded the 1229 it says it is for parents with Parental responsibility who are not emmigrating to australia. Hope this make sense. My head is aching with it all & the more I read the forms the more confused I get. :arghh: Thanks in advance.
      5. We sent in our application last week with Police Checks and everything enclosed to try and speed things up. All we need now is a Case Officer and to get the bub's medicals done. Can anyone tell us how long it took you to get a Case Officer allocated? Just wondering as I am checking my emails every day obsessively since we only have til Dec 2013 to make the final move. Thanks :biggrin:
      6. I thought you only needed to get a Statutory Declaration from any non migrating parents and that the migrating biological parents only have to complete the form 1229. Is this right? I am about to send off all the certified docs and the application form/police checks but have now read some people did a Statutory Declaration as well as form 1229... I am just worried if I send off the paperwork and then Case Officer comes back and says we need Stat Dec too. Anyone else apply for Child Visa 101 with only the form 1229? Thanks

      8. Child visa sub class 101

        Hi all, Just wondering if anyone can help with my question about how long it takes to approve a child visa 101. Child no.3 was born after the rest of us received our visas for permanent residency. We've done our police checks and child's medical was done a week ago so we've fulfilled everything that's been asked of us. Has anyone been through a similar situation and if so, how long did it take to receive the child's visa? We've asked our case officer in London who has just quoted the 6-8 months maximum timeframe but hearsay tells us it could be less, we just haven't heard from anyone who's actually done it. Thanks, Caroline

      10. Hello, I've been putting off applying for my daughters visa(Subcalss 101 Offshore) due to the long timeline. I've been trying to get a job from here and been hoping that we'd be able to go sooner and apply from Aus(Subclass 802 Onshore) instead... My question is - can I apply for Subcalss 101 Offshore and change it to Subclass 802 Onshore should I be lucky enough to gain employment from here whilst we're waiting for the Visa? Your help is appreciated as always! Steve.
      11. Child Visa 802 (onshore)

        Hi folks, looking for info or advice My son who is now 16yrs 6 months has told me he wants to come to Australia, possibly to live permanently due to the UK being the UK (Utterly Krap) no work ETC. I want to get him here via the child visa and im looking at the onshore visa as i can control the Financial side of it, i.e i dont trust his mother with my cash, or a 16 yr old either. Are there any down sides to him entering on the Holiday Visa and the applying for the 802 onshore visa once here. When we left his mother would not allow him to come so was never put on our Visa. Does anyone know how the bridging visa works, would he be able to work or go to Tafe / College. We are now Citizens so there are no issue there and ill sponsor him. All help and Advice is warmly recieved.
      12. Hi there, I am posting as i need further advice about my Child visa 101 (offshore) application, that is about to be lodged by my migration agent.... I am aged 23 years old, female, a British citizen, and currently a student (but about to graduate in 3 weeks with a First Class Honours Degree). Last year i appointed a registered migration agent to help lodge my application, my parents used them about 4 years ago when they emigrated to Australia permanently, and to date they have been helpful to me.......However, i have found something out, very recently, that could affacted my eligibility for the visa, of which the migration agent has not made me aware of (which is strange!). Basically i have been advised that i might have to remain a student until the visa is granted, rather than at the time of being lodged... I wanted to know if this is the case and if anyone has experienced problems with this? I have been exploring my options if this is the case, and the main option would be to undertake a Postgraduate course, full-time, which is for 1 year (of which will cost me alot of money!!!), but this would give me an extra year for the visa to go through (hopefully). Alternatively, if i graduated and then remained working part time in my job, whilst still receiving money from my parents, would i still be classed as dependent on my parents, even though i wouldn't have my student status? I will be speaking to my migration agent about this also, but just wanted some advice from others who may have experienced anything like this, or know about it. Thanks Jennifer
      13. 101 timeline?

        Has anyone recently completed subclass 101 visa for a baby? We've redone our done police checks and got her UK passport. Now wondering how long it might take from application?
      14. Hello all, We need to get our 6 month old daughter a Subclass 101 Visa by completing a 40CH and 47CH along with a fat cheque! (We have our 175 Visa - just need one for our Daughter who was born after we validated our Visa) My question is... "I thought she had to have a medical but I can't see anywhere that required this?". The only reference is asking us to provide 4 Passport Photos if Health Exams haven't been completed? Our application is all ready to go and I don't wanna skip up at the alst hurdle! Advice appreciated. Cheers guys, Steve.
      15. Hi Everyone, We've got our 17 visa and validated them. I'm applying for my 7 month old daughters visa shortly so we can all go together. On the 101 checklist it states that I need to provide pay slips from a current employer or books signed off by an accountant. Trouble is I have been unemployed for 6 months due to redundancy(well, self employed to pay the bills and avoid claiming off the state) but I don't yet have an accountant and couldn't supply employers pay slips. What should I do? Cheers, Steve.
      16. Child Visa 101 help

        Has anyone done this recently with more than 1 kid? I think you only have to pay one application fee irespective of the number of kids but It would be good to get verification. "Only one application charge is payable if dependents of the child are included in the application, or siblings apply together, at the same time and place. " Does any one know? Thanks

I am in Australia with as permanent resident & my 21 year old son is still in the UK studying at University. He has his final year and then he want to come to live over here with us permanently. He is coming out on a holiday from May to Sept and I have just realised that this will not be covered in the normal visitors visa as that is for a max of 3mths, so have decided to see if I can get the sponsored visa before he come over. Do any of the know how long the e visa process for a 101 visa is taking if you send everything up front? Any help would be appreciated Maria

      25. Spouse Visa - 101 Questions!!

        Hello Guys, new to posting but have been reading a fair few threads! However I do have some questions as regards the Spouse Visa. My wife and I have been together since 1999 having lived together from 2000 and married in 2004. We live in the UK and my wife is Australian by descent (Holds Dual nationality) however has never lived in Australia. We have been over twice now - back in 2001 and in 2007. We have a 1 year old son and a 13 year old daughter (from prev relationship) If succesful with our application we would be moving in with my OH sister in Melbourne - she would provide accomodation until such time we get our own property. What is the likelyhood of gaining PR straight away - having been together 10years ? If I gained the PR would my wife still need to prove she can support me? ( as I presume I would be entitled to benefits - not that I intend to do that!) We don't have much in the way of savings and would prob only enter Oz with about $10,000 - would this have any affect on our application? What additional evidence should I supply to 'prove' our relationship? I currenty have 5 A4 sheets with various photos from different periods in our relationship, boarding cards from our initial trip to Oz, Various bills dating back to 2001, and evidence of Joint Accounts since 2001. Evidence of residence (Letters sent to our 3 diferent houses we have lived in) - What else should I supply? I do have the odd birthday card / anniversary card - should I send them? We do not have any old wedding invites with joint names on If someone could let me know what else that would be great! In the 47sp form where it asks for goods/assets - what do i put? As we won't know this til the house and everything else is sold!! Is it better to send medicals and police checks with initial application? I am sure I have more Questions but can't think at the moment - we are very nervous about the whole thing as we want it so much!! Any help would be fantastic!!! G'Day!
