Feel free to reach out in case you have any Queries.

Thanks,
One more query! How did you pay the visa fees? Can we pay through immiaccount and send the receipt copy with application?

Yeah, I paid using the immiaccount and sent the receipt with all the documents. I would suggest you call VFS once and get the latest visa fees. In my case there was a difference of around $10. Also, you have to attach a Demand Draft of INR 1308(Check this also with VFS for the latest price.). This is the VFS processing fees.

Please share your experience and thoughts.
Your Welcome!

1. I also sent through Post to VFS chandigarh.
2. I Just notarised the documents and it worked. I have no idea about VFS seal.
3. I attached coloured. Not sure about B&W.

Note:- When you send the documents, do not send to VFS address from Google. I called up VFS and they asked to mention Australia as the first address line. So, I had to send to -

Australian Visa Application Centre

VFS Global Services Pvt. Ltd
Elante Offices, Entry from Gate No. 3
Unit no. B 209, Second Floor, Office Block B, Plot no. 178- 178A,
Industrial & Business Park,


Feel free to let me know in case of any issues.

Hi Ash, thanks for your post. I am currently working in AUS while my wife and kid are in India. Have applied for daughter's 101 in May but no outcome so far. So looking to apply for 600.

Have a couple of questions if could share your experience:
a. Did you apply under sponsored family stream or tourist stream? for 600
b. Did you apply from India or Aus - is there a difference in process or documentation
c. Also, what / how did you go about your kid's insurance, given that medicare will take time
d. How / what did you inform the AUS High Commission at the time of 600 application?

2. As you have applied for your child 's 101, mention that in his/her 1 year visitor visa application. There are high chances that he/she will get 1 year long visitor visa.

3. AFAIK, nothing. You will have to patiently wait.
Hi Ratnesh, have gone through all your posts on this thread. Really appreciate your inputs, have been really helpful all along.

I am in the same situation as you were as my kid and wife are in India, and I moved here for a job in AUS. Will be applying for 600 as 101 is taking time for an outcome. On the above note, have a question:

Would there still be additional GP / Specialist expenses above the healthcare insurance? was under the impression that for pre-existing illness the wait time is 12 months but otherwise you are covered under private insurance? And I wonder what do they consider as waiting time for an infant.

Hi I'm in the same boat, last week applied for SC600.

#Apply SC600 tourist visa via immi account
#BUPA standard insurance, will cost you around $150 per month
# You can get 12 months visa. Department will use same health examination which you did while applying 101
#Department will inform you before granting visa .
#In invitation/covering letter you can mention you can mention while applying SC600 tourist visa

Let me know if I missed to answer any question

Hey buddy, thanks. You did answer them.

Are you already in AUS? I know this is not relevant to this thread but just thought of checking - if you have already evaluated between going for private insurance for yourself / family or relying on Medicare. I assume that $150 is for child alone - it not being a PR.

I am currently filling in the Visitor visa application and it asks for 'Health Insurance'. Do we need to buy the insurance before hand at the application stage? or this can close to travel dates / after arrival in Australia.

Thanks for your help!

No, I bought it from BUPA once application was approved and I booked the tickets.
