Can I Take My Newborn Out of Australia While on a Temporary Work Visa?
Whether or not you can take your newborn out of Australia and return to Australia, if you are on a temporary work visa, depends on several factors. These factors include your visa status, your newborn's citizenship and whether you have regularised their visa status with the Department.
Children born in Australia to parents on a temporary visa are automatically deemed to have the most favourable visa of their biological parents. However, it is important to regularise the child's visa status with the Department of Home Affairs, and ensure the visa allows multiple entry travel, especially before travelling or lodging new visa applications.
Whilst life can soon become hectic with newborn children and it is easy to let life admin slip us by, it is important to make sure all is in order with the visa status of family members.
