Applying for a visa 802 for son

Recommended Posts

My sons dad is a PR in Darwin and his 14 year old son lives with me in the UK. My son wants to go live with his dad but his dad has said we have to pay school fees while applying for an 802 visa is this correct.

I’m no expert but I’d have thought a dependant visa would mean the son would have PR and wouldn’t have to pay school fees.  Perhaps he means if he’s there on a bridging visa waiting for the PR to come through. That’s possible I suppose but not sure. Hopefully someone will be along that can help more.

Why would you not apply for an offshore child visa? If he’s going to rock up as a tourist then apply for the onshore visa, he’d be up for international fees until his substantive visa came through.  Not sure that I’d be choosing NT as a centre of educational excellence though. If he gets his visa offshore then he’s Not going to pay school fees, other than what everyone else pays.  Short term pain, long term gain.
