Post New Topic

Hi All,

Thanks for posting regular updates on this threat, this is v helpful for everyone who is trying their luck with PR. I had applied on 27th April,2018 and got the grant for my family (Spouse, Me and my 2-year old daughter) on 24th Aug, 2018.

I have a small query -
My daughter, who is an infant, has also got same subclass grant i.e. 189 Independent Skilled Visa. Though, we had declared her as a dependent child. In my case, my wife is primary applicant.

My question is that - shouldn't my daughter have been granted a separate child visa rather than 189 grant? Does any one know about a similar case?

Allow me to explain the visa system of Australia:

Anyone who is included into 189 visa applicant as a secondary visa applicat, such as you or your daughter, will be granted the same subclass 189visa as the main visa applicant (your wife).

The only difference between main visa applicant and secondary in term of visa, is the seconday visa applicant has some restrictional conditions where the main visa applicant does not.

Hope this has answered your question.
