Bringing your child to Australia is a significant step, one that involves a thorough understanding of the visa process. At Settlers Migration & Education, we specialize in making this journey as smooth as possible for you and your family.

Understanding the Child Visa

A child visa allows a child who isn’t an Australian permanent resident to live in Australia permanently. This visa permits multiple entries into Australia for five years. After this period, the child will need to apply for a Resident Return Visa (RRV) to continue re-entering Australia. Once granted Australian citizenship, the child will no longer require a visa for entry.

Benefits of a Child Visa

With a child visa, your child can live in Australia indefinitely, pursue education, work, and enroll in the public healthcare system. They will also have the opportunity to sponsor relatives and eventually apply for Australian citizenship if eligible. The visa application fee is around AUD 2,665, excluding additional costs for health checks, biometrics, and police verification.

Child Visa Categories

  1. Child Visa Subclass 101: This permanent visa allows a child living overseas to join their parents in Australia.
  2. Child Visa Subclass 802 (Onshore): For children under 25 already in Australia, living with parents who are Australian citizens, permanent residents, or eligible New Zealand citizens.
  3. Adoption Visa Subclass 102: Permits adopted children, or those to be adopted, by Australian citizens or residents to live in Australia.
  4. Orphan Relative Visa Subclass 117: Allows a relative to sponsor an orphan child to live permanently in Australia.
  5. Orphan Relative Visa Subclass 837: For orphans whose parents are deceased or unable to care for them, sponsored by a relative in Australia.
  6. Dependent Child Visa Subclass 445: Temporary visa for children whose parents hold a temporary Partner visa and did not include the child initially.
