Hi i think you are from Sri Lanka. I have applied the same & they advised me approx 10 months. But i believe this too long. Was it granted for you? How long it took?

Thanks.

Hi,

Your guess is right. I'm from Sri Lanka. I got my Child VISA in 5 Weeks time. But I lauched my application in Dubai, not in Sri Lanka. Not sure whether SL process the VISA as fast as Dubai does. I have already moved to Ausi by now.

Good luck !

Congratulations! Thats great. Even i am staying in Dubai & i didn't think it serious. Now they says it can go up to 10 months. Anyway i don't have any option either.

How do feel about move from Dubai to Ausi?

Thanks for the quick reply.

So of 101 takes 10 months to process, is there some kind of a 'temporary visa' that one can take for the baby until then? Or should the whole family defer travel to australia until the baby too gets the 101 visa? Of course, parents can always leave the baby with grand-parents and fly without the baby to Australia until baby gets 101. But I will never do such a thing.

You could try and get the child a tourist visa to enable them to move with you. It would mean notifying your CO of what you are doing so they can let you know when then visa is going to be granted so one of you can take the child offshore for it to be granted. Could be costly with the flights and you would need to be sure the child & whoever was taking them was able to get a visa for wherever you took them offshore!

I am doubt that we can apply visit visa once visa application submitted for Offshore 101. That would be an best option if we are sure about the visa grant period and CO is been allocated. So far i don't have any CO and as advised by the Consulate, child visa will be processed from Consulate only. Even i checked with my CO who granted the visa for us and he advised me to go through local Consulate.

As Shel mentioned, You can opt for taking your child as a tourist since it doesn't have an impact on your off shoe visa. However, it might incur more complexities in addition to money. In addition, You also need to think about any consequences when you are applying for citizenship after 4 years. Therefore, it would be good to allocate adequate time for visa process and plan the rest accordingly.

I wonder you received your child's visa by now ? I also applied for my son in last October, still I didn't get the decision though the Assurance of Support also has been approved about 2 weeks ago. Please inform me any developments. We are in Melbourne.

Regards

Earnie
