Wink Pregnancy & Immigration ....?????

No No No - not yet!!!!!

But if, say, I was planning to become pregnant how would this affect our visa application and our medicals etc etc?? Would I be able to get round this by front loading meds with application and then have a free run to plan pregnancy as soon as possible? We dont really want to wait until we arrive in Australia due to *difficulties* and it may be a case of now or never. Likewise, dont really want to delay application any longer than absolutely necessary!

Can anyone shed some light please?

Thanks in anticipation!!

Not wise to have an xray while preggers , and think if done after meds there is a cut off point that you can fly when preggers ie so many weeks gone but don't know what it is ?

Hiya Rooksie,

you could do it that way, but DIMMA do as you to contact them with any alterations in status & can hold the application untill bub is born.

You could alway's time it so that you migrate and have bub in Oz, or otherwise you will have to wait untill you can apply for bub to migrate at your local High comission under family.
(I'm sure someone will let you know how, I havn't done it yet.)

We planned to have our daughter in Oz, but high blood pressure (pre-eclampsia) putan end to that idea!
I will have to sort it out, but who knows baby no 2 could bo on the cards.

bye
Mark

My medical had to be delayed due to pregnancy. OE visas sorted it out for me with DIMIA. I am not sure how complicated it would be to sort out yourself if no agent, whether or not a phonecall could do it. I read somewhere on this site that the visa process can be difficult when pregnant. Maybe you could do a search of the immigration forum.

Good luck
Katie

You are welcome I hope it works out for you. We managed it, but it definately would be worth research before hand though.

Hi, we have gone through the whole process while I have been pregnant ( baby is now 2 months old), we have no agent and its been no problem at all.

We completed the application form with just my details, my husbands and our daughters and enclosed a letter to say that I was expecting a baby. When we got the request for the medicals and pcc's our case officer asked for us to provide a copy of new babys passport bio page and a form to be filled in to tell them of the 'change of family details'- he even provided the form for us and a checklist of things that needed to be sent back. So I just waited until baby had been born until we had the medicals done and then sent everything off.
I even went 2 weeks over my baby's due date so I emailed the case officer (good old Brett!) and said we were worried we wouldnt make the deadline for the forms, etc to be sent back so he gave us an extra month.

Hope ths helps
