Child Visa (Subclass 101)
Children are a ray of happiness and hope in a parent's life, and no one wants to stay away from their child for no good reason. Understanding the issue's sensitivity, the Australian government has a child visa, and various sub-clauses permit a child to visit Australia, but certain conditions are applied. Child visa subclass 101 is for a child outside Australia to come to Australia to live with the parents.
ELIGIBILITY OF CHILD VISA (SUBCLASS 101)
Following are the mandatory requirements:
- The child should be sponsored by their parent or their parent’s partner
- Single (not married or engaged)
- The child should be younger than 18 years of age

- If the child is 18 or older and is unable to work due to a disability and dependent on the sponsoring parent
