Check the below 2 links.I have applied for child visa 2 weeks ago through VFS in India.Hi All,
Can someone guide me on applying for a child visa (new born) from India and what's the processing time for the same.
All the best,I lodged my family stream visa application outside Australia. Can I have a visitor visa while I am waiting for my permanent visa so that I can be with my family in Australia during the processing?
Visitor visas should not be used for long-term stays, for residence in Australia or for the purpose of remaining in Australia for extended periods to await a migration outcome.
When applying for a visitor visa you must meet all requirements, including the genuine visitor criterion, for that visa to be granted. The periods of time an applicant has spent in and out of Australia are taken into account in deciding a visitor visa application.
Hi,Thanks Mathew for the quick reply and best wishes for your application.I have gone through the links and it mentions processing time as 14 months which is very high.Is really that the case.
Howz your application progressing?Is VFS reliable option.Best regards.
