Regarding the health document, the Department of Home Affairs usually requests your child to undergo a health examination. Your child must complete it and the result will be sent directly to the Department of Home Affairs.

What if My Child Onshore?

There is a slight additional required document for Australian Child Visa application, specifically for the 802 visa. Your child must show their valid substantive visa at the time of visa lodgment. Your child must also show their genuine dependency on you.

The required document for Australian Child Visa application, specifically for the 101 visa, will remain the same. Additional documents are necessary only if your child has specific circumstances.

It depends on your and your child’s circumstances. For example, if your child ever got a visa application refused or cancelled or overstayed in any country, then further documents to explain this matter will be required. It also depends whether you are going to lodge the 101 visa or 802 visa application.
