Default Visitor visa 600

Hi

just looking for some advice.

My partner is Australian and I am british. We are currently living in the uk. He got a uk passport when he arrived as his mum was born here. We now have a 3 month old son
Our plan is to move to Australia I have applied for visitor visa sub class 600 for both me and our son but there is a 5 month wait. I just wondered if there is any other route we can take that could get us there quicker?
Thanks

I would think your son is Australian and not eligible for a visa - you should apply for his Australian passport, and a spouse visa for yourself.

That said, only citizens and permanent residents can enter Australia at the moment, unless an exemption is granted - and there are plenty of Australians stranded around the world who are unable to return due to the limited number of flights.

Apply for an eVisitor visa and a travel exemption. As mentioned, you can also get citizenship by descent for your son.

Still unlikely to get them into the country any time soon. There's no reason for them to receive the exemption.

She’s the de facto partner of an Australian citizen and has an Australian citizen child (or one who is eligible to be), so all they need to do is evidence it properly and they will be granted a travel permission. They do not need any other reason. Usually takes a couple of days. Getting a flight is, of course, a different thing.

Just to back up Paul's statement - if a person can show they meet the definition of being an 'immediate family member' of an Australian citizen or permanent resident then an exemption to travel is not required.
