CHILD VISA 101 / 802
Suppose one parent of a child is an Australian or an eligible New Zealand citizen. In that case, the child is automatically an Australian citizen. But if you migrate or migrate with a child, you may have to apply for a Child visa. The same situation is when you adopt or take care of an orphaned relative child. A child visa lets a child move or stays in Australia to live with their parents.
The Child Visa grants a youngster outside the country (Subclass 101 ) or in Australia (Subclass 802) to stay with his or her parents.
An Australia child visa is a family visa issued to children whose parents or legal guardians are living in Australia and are Australian citizens, permanent residents of Australia, eligible New Zealand citizens or temporary partner visa holders (subclass 309 or 820).
You can apply for one of those three visas.
• Dependent child visa
• Adoption visa
• Orphaned visa
