An Australian child visa allows children with legal guardians or parents living in Australia to reunite with their parents. If you are an eligible Australian citizen, permanent resident or New Zealand citizen, you can sponsor your child’s move to Australia. This permanent family visa will allow your child to live, study and work in Australia indefinitely. As a parent, if you have a valid permanent permit then you don’t have to be in Australia when your child applies for this visa.
The Australian child visa has two subclasses, namely subclass 101 and subclass 802. Subclass 101 visa is for applicants living outside of Australia. Subclass 802 visa deals with applicants living in Australia with the help of a bridging visa or any other substantive visa.
