Subclass 101 Child Visa

About the subclass 101 Child visa

This visa allows a child of an Australian permanent resident who is currently outside Australia to come to Australia to live with their parents.

The Child visa subclass 101 is a permanent visa and allows your child to live permanently in Australia.

A Child visa subclass 101 lets an eligible parent sponsor their child to live in Australia indefinitely.

If a child is younger than 18 years of age a parent may apply on behalf of the child.

The visa application must be lodged outside Australia and the child must be outside Australia when the visa application is decided.
