My wife, daughter and me got PR-189 and we had short visit to Australia already.
We have a newborn, a baby boy. Now, I need to apply Child Visa 101 for him.
I have certain doubts, I hope I might get valuable inputs from here.
(Please note, that we all are here in India right now, the Australian short visit
was to enforce Visa)

1. My wife was the main applicant, now either of us can sponsor the child visa.?

2. I am planning to go to Australia first; the child visa request needs both parents
declaration for allowing the child's migration- this applicable only in case of one of the parent stays back without migrating...? (form 1299 is required..?)

3. Photo Copies of the documents for sponsors current employment/ financial statement is asked.
(Neither of us is yet employed in Australia)

4."If the applicant is under 18 years of age, their sponsor and his/her partner must provide the following:
Valid original police clearance certificates from each country in which they have lived in for more than 12 months or more (cumulatively) in the last 10 years."

Which means the both the Parents needs to produce fresh Indian PCC.?
(We already have PR-189)

Thanks in Advance. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Child Visa-101, if granted, does involve any specific time period inside the visa holder - the kid - need to visit Australia for the first time, as it happens in PR-189, where we had 9months, inside which we had to visit there for the first time.

I am answering my own doubts for the sake of clarity to others.

1. My wife was the main applicant, now either of us can sponsor the child visa.?
Yes, anyone can apply

2. I am planning to go to Australia first; the child visa request needs both parents
declaration for allowing the child's migration- this applicable only in case of one of the parent stays back without migrating...? (form 1229 is required..?)

Well, a confusing part indeed, but better provide 1229

3. Photo Copies of the documents for sponsors current employment/ financial statement is asked.
(Neither of us is yet employed in Australia)

Your Current Salary Slips -latest- 6 months and Tax Forms, Form 16 etc would be suffice (I provided my Indian Job related docs)


4."If the applicant is under 18 years of age, their sponsor and his/her partner must provide the following:
Valid original police clearance certificates from each country in which they have lived in for more than 12 months or more (cumulatively) in the last 10 years."

Yes, Both parents PCC is required. If you had resided over 12 years in some other country that too would be required.

How long it took to grand the visa ?
Yet not granted, its just 2nd month.

The longer, it may take upto 8-9 months, but generally its seen that Appln complete in all respects get the grant in 3-4 months.

A sample 40CH form in the format in which I submitted is given here.

1) Remember : I may not be correct in the Form Completion, and your conditions may be different too..

2) Always use the latest Design for all the forms. This form is of previous design version, its got one extra question than previous one

3) This is only indicative.. don't take the response for granted (I am yet to be granted the Child Visa)
