Hello all,

I got the child visa 101 granted on 29-July-2019 for my daughter from the embassy in Washington DC (USA)! Total time take from filing application to getting grant was about 7 and half months. I have been following this thread closely for a while to get an idea on the wait times and experiences from others. So its only fair that I share some details about my experience and timelines:

Me and my wife had applied and got our visa grant (PR) under subclass 189 in Nov 2017 when we were in the United States. Our daughter was born afterwards in the US and so we had to apply PR for her separately under child visa 101. We had planned to move to Australia around May/June 2019 as my US work permit was expiring in May 2019. Below are the timelines:

-Dec 4, 2018: Mailed all the application documents via Fedex to the Australian embassy at Washington DC. My daughter was 4 months old

-Dec 24, 2018: Got acknowledgement e-mail on receipt of application from the embassy. This e-mail included the HAP ID for medicals

-Jan 8, 2019: Completed medical examinations (just basic physical checks by doctor, no x-ray or other tests) with nearest panel physician using the HAP ID. Health checks came out well, and they sent their results to immigration online in a couple of days

-Jun 1, 2019: Applied for and got ETA tourist visa online for daughter as she was US citizen. We came to Melbourne, Australia on June 21, 2019. (the standard processing time was 8 months at this time, so I had expected to wait at least till end of August before I could check with them on status, and possibly much longer to get the grant)

-Jul 16, 2019: Got e-mail from the case officer (CO) at immigration (Washington DC) indicating that my daughter's application is ready to be finalised. We were told that my daughter needs to exit Australia for at least 3 business days (5 days recommended), and to send them the travel plans so that they can issue visa grant accordingly. They indicated we could travel to any country near Australia as our wish, but had to travel by plane and not a cruise ship.

-Jul 16, 2019: I booked tickets to India for my wife and daughter for 27th July 2019, and e-mailed the travel itinerary details back to them. I got an acknowledgement from them the next day indicating they have added this information to the file.

-Jul 27, 2019: My wife and daughter exit Australia

-Aug 5, 2019: I e-mail the embassy(CO) asking for an update as 5 business days had passed. I get an update the next day indicating they had already issued the grant and e-mailed on Jul 29, 2019. I could not find the mail in my inbox, junk or spam folders, so I requested them to e-mail the grant document again.

-Aug 6, 2019: Got the visa grant notification pdf e-mailed to me! The initial entry date on the visa is 1 year from the grant date, i.e., Jun 29 2020. So this date does not look to be based on the date of the medicals or the PCC.

Hope these details helps some of the folks over here. Good luck!

All her tests are normal; wondering if I can use her test reports to send with application against the HAP number.

Is this acceptable; Any clues, Anyone ?
Get it done through a panel physician nearest to you that is listed on their site. The office of the panel physician sends the test results directly to the immigration office with the corresponding HAP ID. The nearest one to me was not as far as yours, but I still had to drive a couple of hours one side to get it done.

The method you suggested if probably a risk not worth taking, as it could delay your application.

Hey I got my medical done yesterday from Dallas since that one is only one open on weekends. For child it costs $50 since all they do is just physical. Hardly took 5 minutes with the doctor for a total of 10 hours drive.

You have to get it done from the affiliated centers only since they have authorized by immigration dept.

Default Child 101 from USA for American citizen

Hi All,

Sharing good news. i got my child's 101 visa today within 20 days of acknowledgment. Here is the timeline.

1-July-2019 - Documents reached Washington embassy
14-July-2019 - Email received to pay the increased fees amount
24-July-2019 - Acknowledgement received and request for medicals with HAP ID
10-Aug-2019 - Medicals done and State PCC sent over email.
14-Aug -2019 - Grant received.

There is just one thing that worries me, the passport number on the grant has digits interchanged, I have emailed them to rectify it and I hope it is not big of an issue. Anyone else had this experience?

Hi All,
I need your help to understand the options available. I'm eligible for Australian citizenship. My daughter was born overseas and applied her 101 visa in June 1st week.
I have 2 options

1) wait for child visa 101 grant and than apply for citizenship including daughter
2) Apply for mine citizenship and daughters later once 101 grant received.

I'm sure about option 2 but not about 1 ....whether option 1 really work.

Can anyone please advise
