Default How will be life in melbourne with under 1 year old kid

Hello expats,
I have applied for child visa for my kid but now me and my wife are planning to apply for a tourist visa for my kid. My wife already have PR. We have been discussing how situations will be once we come there. And after all that, we are confused. We need suggestion\advice from experts or from someone who already experienced it.

My son is now 4 months old and we are planning to travel somewhere in december\january (by that time my baby will turn 9-10 months). My wife may not work till our kid turns 1 year. After that we are planning for a daycare.

Which daycare will be good and affordable (our budget 2000/month)? Is the daycare good enough to handle annoying kids ? Which suburb is suitable to settle (considering the nearby vegetable market, grocery stores, good public school, etc)?

Thanks in advance,
Pratap

There are good daycares in the South Melbourne area (Dorcas St.).
It is better to send your child to day care after he/she turns 2.
Also, at the daycare, they do provide food, but its the australian food (spaghetti and stuff) that your child may not be used to eating.

Do note that a lot of small infections will be picked up from the daycare - cold/cough/runny nose...nothing that can't be managed but your child will be cranky

South Melbourne gets my vote for settling down - safe, close to CBD, well connected and very easy to reach the freeway to exit melbourne or go to the airport.

Thanks for the response.

I have another question. We are planning to apply for tourist visa from offshore and we might get the child visa when we are in Australia. Do we need to come back to India and visit Australia again to activate the child visa?

I don't think this is an issue because the tourist visa is automatically overridden when you get the child visa later.
To be sure, check myVEVO app once you get the child visa. The status should show as "Onshore".

I would suggest you travel to AUstrali and apply for Child visa from AUstralia (800). To enter AUstralia you need Visitor's visa(600). While applying tourist visa, explain your situation in a letter and ask the visa officer to remove any condition on the Visa. I think, you need a visa without any condition to apply for PR from Australia.

If you apply for child visa from offshore, your child will need to exit Australia when the visa is finalised. They will grant the visa once the child has exited Australia, and then you can bring the child back with the PR. You won't need to come back to India specifically, you may go to some other country nearby.

My daughter is going through this process now, after getting the visa finalized last month. She went to India with her mother, and are planning to come back to Australia by the end of this month.
