Default Changes of circumstances

Hi everybody,
Me and my wife are PR holders and we got our baby born 7th of april.
Could somebody please tell me if I need to inform the Department of Home Affairs about our family's new member or it is only necessary for non-Australian residents??
When I go this link: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/change-in-situation
and select that baby was born in Australia and parents has PR, it says this:


Your baby's status
Your baby may be an Australian citizen.

A baby born in Australia is automatically an Australian citizen if at least one parent was an Australian citizen or permanent resident at the time of birth.

Your baby might also be a citizen of your home country (dual citizenship).

Travelling outside Australia with your baby
If your baby is an Australian citizen, they need an Australian passport to leave and enter Australia.

Visit the Australian Passport Office website to find out how to apply for an Australian passport and what documents you need. If you need to show evidence of the baby's Australian citizenship, apply online for Evidence of Australian Citizenship.


Only if I select that parent doesn't have a PR, I get this:


Tell us about your baby
You must tell us about your baby as soon as possible (even if they don't have a passport yet) so we can determine whether your baby can be added to your current visa and any pending visa applications you have.

If the baby doesn't have a passport yet, you can give us copies of your baby's passport pages later. However, you must send them as soon as you can.

Using ImmiAccount
If you currently have a visa application in ImmiAccount that is not yet finalised, sign in to ImmiAccount and upload these documents:

Form 1022 - Notification of changes in circumstances
a colour scan of your baby's Australian birth certificate
a colour scan of your baby's passport pages (showing photo, personal details, and passport issue and expiry dates)
By post
If your visa application in ImmiAccount is finalised or you did not apply for your visa via ImmiAccount, post these documents to your nearest Departmental office.

Form 1022 - Notification of changes in circumstances
a certified copy of your baby's Australian birth certificate
a certified copy of your baby s passport pages (showing photo, personal details, and passport issue and expiry dates)
We recommend you send them by express or registered post so you can track their delivery.


MY Question is: Do I need to inform Department of Home Affairs using 1022 form or not????

Is the baby born in Australia??anyways, I will discuss both scenarios to you.

Short answer: NO. You do not need to fill in Change in Circumstances form 1022 to inform DoHA of your child's birth.

Scenario 1
If your baby was born in Australia, then you first register birth with local state/territory to obtain a birth certificate and get the baby enrolled in medicare. Once you get the birth certificate, you can then apply for Evidence of Citizenship directly as babies born in Australia to Permanent Visa holders are naturally Australian Citizens by birth.

Scenario 2
If your baby was born overseas, then it is a different story. Since you are still Permanent Visa holder, you need to lodge Child Visa 101 to first get PR granted for your baby.

Then Scenario 1 applies to you; just register birth with your local state/territory to obtain a birth certificate and get the baby enrolled in medicare. Once you get the birth certificate, you can then apply for Evidence of Citizenship directly as babies born in Australia to Permanent Visa holders are naturally Australian Citizens by birth.

When you apply of Evidence of Citizenship, it is you who is notifying DoHA of baby's birth and requesting citizenship certificate. Hence, form 1022 is not required.
