Hi.. The IED is no issue in the current Covid situation, I would prefer to go ahead with 101. Once you have your kid, start your process for 101. By Mar 2022, you will have a clear vision. Also If you feel the 101 is not progressing you can very well apply for Tourist Visa 600 and get your kid.Apologies in Advance for a bit of a long post / request for information.
We were granted subclass 190 Visa in December 2019. IED expired in Oct 2020 (we couldn't travel due to COVID). Emailed to [email protected] and got an auto-generated notice from their end informing -
Generally you will be able to arrive in Australia after the initial entry date, as long as it is before the “Must not arrive after date” specified in your visa Grant Notification letter. You do not need to be granted an “extension” to your initial entry date or visa. The attached notice should be sufficient evidence for a travel provider to be satisfied that the visa holder can enter Australia as the holder of a Skilled visa.
Now, we are expecting our first child in September 2021 and just to plan in advance, I am gathering information on which route to take for applying the Child PR (101 vs 802) for a favorable outcome . We plan to migrate to Australia by March 2022. I precisely have 2 questions:
a) Since we haven't yet travelled to Australia after the grant, do you guys foresee an issue applying for the Child Visa with an expired IED?
b) What is most preferred route to apply the Child Visa (101 Vs 802) considering the processing times in current scenario?
Thank you in advance for the guidance and help!
