Hey guys how long did your child 101 visas take? We’re starting to panic as it’s saying I’m website 10 months + !! We frontloaded everything including medicals (thanks Brock for help), and spoke to emigration department and confirmed they have everything and don’t require any further info from us! We don’t go until October but I’m getting twitchy now! X 

i have submitted my daughter's child visa in May2018 but there has been no update as yet from the immgration. when i called they said it could take between 14-18 months to approve.

We submitted 101 visa in November 2018, still waiting to be assigned case officer. I've rang the Canberra office for more info but the only thing they can say is the processing time can be up to 14 months 😤😤

Seems like the processing times have changed since I applied for the Child Visa in 2016. I got the visa granted in under 2 months (which includes the Christmas/New Year Break).

Hi. Very similar situation to you: myself, wife and eldest have PR’s and we are currently back in the UK after living in Australia for a year. We want to go back and need a visa for our youngest who was born here. How long did your 101 take in the end? 

Did you consider a visitor visa then applying for the 802 onshore? I know this is not the conventional route but I’m yet to find a thread where this way WASNT successful.

Any advice is welcomed

Hi, I believe this is the email address we used, I can't say whether it's still valid or not though: familymigrationlondon@dfat.gov.au

Good to hear that you're moving over soon.  Our daughter is in Settlers Hills Primary which seems a good school.  We didn't like the look of Makybe Rise but that was only from the outside when driving past so I can't really say how the school is. Obviously with Mother Teresa and Tranby you need to pay for those schools, Tranby is next door to Settlers Hills Primary and seems to have better reviews than Mother Teresa, but that's only what I have read online.

The school sizes are certainly different over here, our daughters primary school in the UK had about 180 kids in it, the schools over here seem to have about 700-900 pupils!

Had it all been good for you since your return? We are in a similar boat: we lived in Aus for a year with PR visas along with our son and less than two years from arriving back in the UK we are weighing up a return!

Hi,

If you do decide to front load your Medicals you can get your HAP ID before submitting your visa application.

You need to log into your online Immi account and from memory you select New Application, then find "My Health Declarations" and then you select what main visa category you're applying for (i.e. Child 101 Visa), you then just complete the details and at the end it gives you a HAP ID number.  You can then book your medicals with this number and you complete the HAP ID number on your Visa application which they will match up when processing it.

I had to to do this for 2 Child Visa's for my children, we needed to front load as we only had 1 year RRV's so were short of time.  I rang the medical place for an appointment and they couldn't give us one without the HAP ID's, I then found out you could generate them on your online Immi account as I've mentioned above.

With regards paying for the visas. One of the forms you fill in for the child visa, 40CH or 47CH etc has a section for your bank/card details. You fill that in and they take payment from your account. They were very quick at taking the payment!

We have our shippers coming this Thurs and Friday and we fly out to Perth on 25th April! All very stressful, daunting, exciting at the same time. I often think we must be mad doing all this, again! Although didn’t have any kids the first time. 

Hope the above helps you x

Hi,

When login to ImmiAccount , Under "My Health Declarations" we do not have  subclass visa option 101. Has this been removed? What category visa we need to apply HapID under? We are trying to front load midecals for our kid.

Yes so far so good, we've been back in Oz for 16 months, our 6 year old daughter is settled in School and we also have a nearly 3 year old son.

I still have days where I want to be back in the UK and with our family, who knows what the future holds.  Sadly I think once you've lived in both countries you are never truly settled.

I can't help you unfortunately as it's been a long time since I have needed to log in to the ImmiAcount and the Health Declarations etc but yes as far as I'm aware the Child 101 visa still exists.
