Jodieed2 posted a topic in Visa ChatHello, I am from the Uk and my partner Australian. We have been together for 2 years whilst I was in the country on working holiday visa. We submitted our partner visa a few weeks ago onshore and I have been granted a bridging visa A! While a decision is made! I have just just found out that I am pregnant and am trying to get as much information about my rights to medical care and benefits...any help would be much appreciated. I have already had my medical examination and x-ray for the visa so there is no concern there! I have read that being pregnant makes no difference to the application and will not speed it up which is fine! I currently work full time and have done for the past 5 months and will continue to work until the baby is born! As as I am from the Uk i have a green Medicare card! In the UK there are no costs to have a baby, what is the case with that here? What would I need to pay for and what is covered by my Medicare? Also, what sort of benefits am I entitled to? It is more than likely that I will still be on a bridging visa or the temporary resident (820) visa when the baby is born. Just looking for any advice and information regarding my situation. And any pointers I should look out for Thank you in advance.
naibsel posted a topic in Aussie ChatHi Guys, I am hoping someone can either help me out or at least point me in the right direction. I have been living in Australia for 5 years and am on a defacto 457 visa (My partner is English too). I have a 17 month old who was born here and another baby due any day. Financially things are tight as we're kind of in limbo and aren't entitled to anything here in Aus like the baby bonus or child care rebates as we aren't permanent. My friend today suggested that we should be entitled to child benefit from the UK as we are citizens there. Does anyone know if this is true and how we go about it? Thank you so much in advance
