A Child Visa allows the children of an Australian citizen, permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen to live with them in Australia. This visa has two subclasses 101 and 802.
Subclass 101: Through this subclass visa a child who is currently living outside Australia can live with his/her parents in Australia. To be eligible for this visa a child must be under 18 and born outside Australia.
Subclass 802: If a child (or children) is living with the parents who are Australian citizens, permanent residents or eligible New Zealand citizens can live with them in Australia. To apply for this visa subclass a child must be in Australia from starting to end of the process.
If your child is born outside the Australia, then you should apply for the visa under Child Visa subclass 101. Also if your child in under 18 you can simply apply for the visa under the same subclass.
A child is granted for the child of an Australian citizen, permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen. A child has to fulfil the requirement criteria before getting a Child Visa. The parents of the child also have to meet with conditions.
Yes, you can apply for child visa if your child is adopted under the subclass 102. The child can already be adopted or be in the process of being adopted. The adoptive parent sponsors the child for this visa and usually applies on their behalf.
The parents, who are living in Australia on a temporary visa, can apply for migration of their child from home country. It is a temporary multiple-entry visa that allows the child to visit Australia until the parent’s permanent partner visa is approved.
No, the child must not be married, in a de facto partner relationship or engaged to be married. Additionally, if the child is 18 years of age or over, the child must have never before been married or in a de facto partner relationship.
The parental responsibility (custody) requirement must be met for every child less than 18 years of age. If another parent or any other person can legally determine where the child can live, permission for the child to migrate must be obtained from that person.
