Dependant child 802

Recommended Posts

Hi our 19 year old son came here on a tourist visa for 3 months then we changed to an 802 onshore visa which gave him unlimited study but no work rights.He has been on this bridging visa for just over 3 months now and my question is he has not studied or enrolled in any study courses,will this effect the visa outcome for PR if he hasn't studied or doesn't study at all. He is still our dependant as he lives with us and we support him because he does not work ?

Since having your child in Australia with you is such a vitally important thing, I suggest you engage a migration agent to give you their professional advice.  You don't want to make decisions like this on the basis of forum posts.

My own concern would be that the onus is on you to prove your child is truly dependent.  If he's 19, not in education and has no illnesses or disabilities that would prevent him working, then the question would be, why is he not working?   I know it's because he's with you in Australia with no work rights, but the point is, he could easily be back in the UK supporting himself with a job and/or benefits, so there's no real need for him to be dependent on you.  Therefore to be on the safe side, I'd get him into some kind of training or further education asap.

It might pay the OP to read the 802  schedule 2 regulations.
