What’s the difference between a Child Visa and a Dependent Child Visa?

There are different criteria in the Migration Regulations for each one, which we won’t go into here. In short, the Dependent Child Visa is applied for when the child’s parent has a temporary Partner Visa, whereas the Child Visa is applied for when the parent has a permanent Partner Visa.

The child is 25 years old and has a job and a husband. Can we get a Child Visa?
Do I need to adopt the child in Australia?

    My child visa application was refused, can I apply for dependent child visa?

      Why was it refused? I can’t tell you what to do because I don’t know your circumstances. If you want professional help, please use our assessment form.
