How 457 Visa Works For The New Born Child?

If you and your partner have a 457 visa as dependents and have a child while living in Australia, then your child will be deemed to hold a 457 visa since birth. However; the child must be born in Australia. You have to lodge an application with DIAC to officially grant your child with visa 457 and it must be recorded in DIAC’s systems.

Relevant Documents Required For Application

Before lodging an application for this purpose, you will be required to obtain a complete birth certificate and passport of your child. After obtaining the documents, you can fill the form 1066 and lodge these with DIAC on behalf of your child. In this particular application, you must include the documents mentioned as below:
  1. Certified copy of your child’s passport bio data page.
  2. Certified copy of your partner’s passport bio data page.
  3. Certified copy of your child’s unabridged birth certificate.
  4. Certified copy of your passport bio data page.
  5. Proof that you have bought the health insurance for your kid, or confirmation that you have enrolled him/her with Medicare.
  6. Supporting letter from sponsoring employer (this letter principally is a confirmation that your sponsoring employer is supporting the particular application and shows assent to undertake the sponsor’s obligations that will be due after the addition of your child to 457 visa).
As your child is bound to get a 457 visa since birth; you are not required to get complete health examinations. There is also no fee paid to the government for lodging the application.
If you take your child to any other country before adding him or her to your 457 visa, you are still able to lodge an application to add him or her to your 457 visa. Again you don’t have to pay any governmental fee for lodgment.

Taking Your Child Outside Of Australia And Children Birth Outside Australia

If you bring your child to another country and don’t add to 457 visa and then get another visa to make your child return back to Australia ( as DIAC will not be having any record for your child holding 457 visa), when you file the 457 visa application, you have to pay the government fee. The reason is that the subsequent visas obtained for your kid will be a replacement of 457 visa that he or she is deemed to hold right from birth. And since your child will not be holding a 457 visa, you have to pay the government fee for lodging this application.
In case your child is born in any country outside Australia, then you have to pay the fee for lodging the application for your 457 visa.
