Hello All,

I & My wife have PR under subclass 189. We got this PR in Dec 2014 & didn't move to Australia due to family planning complications. In januray current year, we are blessed with baby child. We have got her passport & now she is 6 months old.

We want to apply for PR for her as we want to move in september or october month in current year. I see options as visa subclass 101 but it shows processing time of 7 to 9 months.

Is there any option in which we can get her PR visa in 2 to 3 months maximum? Reason for going in september or october month is that we can apply for resident return visa in year 2019 as we will complete 2 years stay in Australia. Otherwise, we wont be able to continue with staying in Australia & will have to return in Dec,2019.

Hope I have provided all information to reply my query. If some information you feel needed from me to provide accurate reply, please let me know.

I am expecting early & accurate reply.

Thanks a ton in advance for responding.

Regards,
Sandeep Arora

The child visa processing will take as long as it takes, you can't speed it along.

Regarding the Resident Return Visa, you only need to worry about this if you plan to travel outside Australia after the entry rights on your PR visa expire. If you will still be in Australia in Dec. 2019, then you can continue living in Australia. However if you want to travel, then you would apply for the RRV. If you've already lived in Australia for 2 years, then you'd be given a 5-year RRV. If you've lived in Australia less than 2 years, you would be given a shorter RRV (probably 1-year). As soon as the RRV expires, you could then apply for a new one and by then you'd be eligible for the 5-year one.

Hi Maggie,

Thanks a ton for your reply.

Now all my confusion has vanished & can plan properly for my child PR application.

Regarding subclass 101 visa for my child, I studied the process and have one query as of now. Hope you can respond to it easily.

Do I & my wife both need to have PCC check from India at present? We have got our PCC check for India in 2013 to submit our Australian PR application. We have stayed in India for most of the time except in USA for 11 months in past 4 years. I think I don't require USA PCC check as I have stayed less than 1 year duration.

Waiting for reply from your side. If you need further information, please let me know.

Regards,
Sandeep Arora

I don't know the ins and outs of a child visa, but I would think you do not need a US police check if you were there less than 12 months in total. You may need to have new India police checks though if yours were from 2013. Hopefully the DIBP website explains this clearly enough. Or you can wait for your CO to contact you to tell you what checks may be required and get them after that.

Hi Maggie,

I have applied for my child visa under visa subclass 101 last week. It is still to be assigned case officer.

I have to travel to Australia for project assignment around 8th January,2018.

Can you please let me know if I can apply tourist visa for my 10 months child? Can she travel along with me & my wife even her migration visa is under process?

Regards,
Sandeep Arora

You can apply for a visitor visa for your child and DIBP will hopefully approve this so your daughter can come to Australia with you. When the 101 visa is ready to be granted, you would need to take her outside Australia (can be to New Zealand, Bali, etc.) in order for the visa to be granted.

Hi

To be bit on safer side and to save processing time i will suggest to apply for USA PCC as well.
11 months is a borderline case and CO may still ask for PCC
