Can you include a child on a partner visa?

Recommended Posts

Just that really - I have PR but living in the UK currently. Want to sponsor my partner so we can go to Australia but we have a 4 month old baby. Do we include little one on my partners visa as a dependent or do we need a child visa for him?

thanks in advance

Yes you can add your child, and you, as a permanent resident rather than a citizen, need to be "usually resident" in Australia to sponsor.

Oh dear. Might be a problem there. Obvs I’ll need to speak to an agent, but can you briefly advise of the definition of ‘usually resident’ please?

Usually resident literally means what it says.   You'll need to show that you're only in the UK temporariy and your real home is still in Australia.
