Default baby on the way..

Can anyone out there advise us on how easy/difficult it is to obtain a visa for my new born baby after PR has been granted for me and my partner. We stayed in the UK and intend to move out to Oz after the baby is born. Would I have to have another medical? would it effect our original PR? What conditions/illnesses would effect a new born entering OZ? Any help most welcome..

HI. I've just heard back from my Migration Agent about this. I am just recently pregnant and mentioned it (even though we already have our visa's and are planning on leaving the UK at the end of Jan). This is her response:

Just one thing to watch - you MUST enter Australia before the due date and it is next to impossible to have that changed for anyhting. With a first pregnancy, you don't know what can happen and you may even be unable tofly at certain times. I know that you are looking forward to your holiday before coming to Oz, but just make sure that you are still able to travel!! Don't want you to get stuck in UK till the baby is born because that would mean another application, medicals ets. Too hard basket, believe me. I have had clients caught in this very beatiful trap before!!
Even though I am pregnant I still have to inform the DIMIA about this - I guess they need to get ready for the fact that a child is going to be born there in August.

Edited to add: congratulations by the way! When is the baby due? Is it your first? It's my first so getting use to all the new things - like morning sickness!

Hi Vee, thanks for the reply but unfortunately I don't have a choice and we have to have the baby in this country... My partner and I have already got our PR but we will have to apply for a separate PR for the baby.. was wondering if that would effect our PR and whether I would need to have another medical..? and what conditions may affect the baby getting a PR visa..

I think you may need to. If you re-read the response from my migration agent she said "medicals" would need to be done again, so I presume that means that you would all have to have them done.

Have you checked the DIMIA website? They may have information on there.

Congrats to vickymills as well. Yes, no soft cheese, prawns or pate......great - just as it's xmas I'm denied all my fave foods!

Hi there,

just to let you know that medicals will have to be done for your new baby and an application as well. We were/are in the same position and were advised by our case officer to have the baby in Australia. Our initial entry date is 12 May which is just 2 weeks after the baby is due to be born.....so not enough time for applications, medicals etc.

It was a bit of hassle as it meant that we have had to rush through and sell up a lot sooner than we had hoped. Earlier 'advice' we recieved was that it was no problem but this is only the case before the visa is granted. After that they can't add anyone to the application. So.....just be aware of your initial entry date if circumstances force you to have the baby here.

If you dod decide to go beforehand, then Singapore Airlines are about the bst carrier as they will carry you up until 35 weeks with a doctors note. We're hoping and praying that everything goes smoothly so we get the note. Don't even want to contemplate the possibilities of not getting the all clear.

Sorry, I can't offer any help on what medical conditions in the baby might affect your visas etc. Hope it all works out for you guys.

The FAQ has a small section devoted to this subject:

http://ptlabs.topcities.com/faq0.html#pcm003

Anyway, your newborn baby will need to do a medical, but not a police check.

You should note that a baby born in Australia to at least one Australian citizen or permanent resident parent automatically receive Australian citizenship by birth. No medicals, no visa applications no fees.

However, if you are a British citizen, you should check whether your baby is entitled to British citizenship if he/she is born overseas. Jeremy who roams the Immigration forum is an expert on British citizenship matters may be able to help.
