Newborn returning to Oz.
Hey in need of some help regarding my newborn returning to Oz. My partner and I had a baby in December 2016 and we are both permanent residents. We are planning to travel to Uk in April and have not got a passport organised for our baby yet. It is a lengthy process to get our baby an Australian passport and could be quicker for us to get a British passport.....so my question is if we get the British passport can my baby return to Oz with us?
Hi Stewart and sorry for the delay.
Firstly congrats on th birth of the bub! That's great news! :)
The short answer is yes, your baby can return however you will need to apply for a 101 child visa to add them under your PR.
