My husband and I were granted PR visa 175 in June 2011, we validated it with a trip to Oz in Nov. 2011, we are planning on emigrating approx June 2014. Since our visa was granted we have had a baby girl. :biggrin: We are aware we need to apply for a child visa 101, and it looks like the current processing time in London (where we need to apply) is 3 months. My question is, do we need to validate the visa with a trip to Oz, and if so, what is the time scale for that? My worry is that if we are granted the visa too quickly, we may have to do an expensive validation trip before we are ready to make the full move! (But then if we leave application till nearer the time and this gets delayed, it may hold up the whole move!) Any advice much appreciated. Many thanks.
WeGottaGetOuttaThisPlace posted a topic in Visa ChatSorry I haven't posted in a while but I am stuck again.... We are WAY behind in applying for child visa for our new baby. Our visas run out Dec 2013 but we still have to get a visa for our little one. We have filled in the application form as best we can and are in the process of getting the documents all certified. I am just trying to find out what we need to send off with the initial application form.. Is it: Cert copy birth certificates for myself and hubby Cert copy birth certificate for new baby Cert copy passport main visa holder (eg OH) Cert copy passport new baby Application form and Stat Dec Form Visa application fee cheque/credit card form The medicals and police checks go later don't they? Also, is it originals and not cert copies for these??? Thanks for any advice on this. I am starting to panic as I have heard it can take up to a year to get the child visa just now :shocked: so I am worried we have left it too late... I am not even sure how we are going to get to Oz but the clock is ticking now and it's this year or never. Can't believe our visas have nearly run out and we are still here.
