Child Visa 101

Recommended Posts

Hello all you POI'ers!

We need a Child (Subclass 101) Visa for our newborn Daughter before we can all emmigrate(As I understand it).

Anyone any idea on processing time for Child Visa 101?

Thanks guys and gals!

Steve.

Child visa is currently being quoted as 6-7 months to process. God only knows why it is taking so long.

Really? That's mad! Can anyone else verify that? Could we go and apply from Australia? Is it easier, quicker or better? And how would we get her there to begin the application?

Also costs a heart stopping 1100 quid. Click on the search button above and type child visa. Seriously am not kidding. The unofficial route is take the young un on a tourist visa and apply for the visa onshore.

Cheers peach! I think it's 1300 quid plus new police check and I think she has to have meds! We've got our visas(all validated) but now need to add my Daughter. Any links to info about the unofficial route?

You need to search for child visa on here - is unofficial (and not without some risk).

You are not adding your daughter to your visa. You are applying for a child visa, we all need our own individual visas, so you can never "add" someone.

 

The child visa is even more expensive if you apply onshore. I would do it the proper way, significantly cheaper and less risk.

 

The unofficial way might save time, but not money and you would have to be prepared to explain why the rest of the family is emmigrating but baby is just coming on holiday.
