Information about Child Visa Australia
ABOUT CHILD VISA AUSTRALIA
Children born in Australia where at least one parent is an Australian citizen or permanent visa holder at the time of the child’s birth then the child automatically acquires Australian citizenship.
Children born outside Australia to parents who are not Australian citizens do not automatically acquire Australian citizenship and they are not eligible for citizenship by descent. Therefore, children born outside Australia to permanent visa holding parents will need to apply for and be granted a migration (ie. permanent resident) visa to be able to enter and remain in Australia with their parents.
