DEPENDENT CHILD VISA (SUBCLASS 445)
The Dependent Child Visa (Subclass 445) allows a child move to or stay in Australia until the Department makes a decision on the parent's permanent partner visa application.

Be the biological child, step child or adopted child of the parent.
Able to meet health and character tests.

MORE ABOUT THIS VISA
The Dependent Child Visa (Subclass 445) can only be granted if the application can show that the child (under 18 years of age) can demonstrate that they have written consent of both parents who can legally decide where the child lives, that the laws of the home country permit the removal of the child and that the application is consistent with Australian laws. The Department can refuse this visa if they feel it is not in the best interests of a child under 18.
The dependent child can himself/herself include their own dependent children in their application. It must also be known that all outstanding debts to the Australian government will need to be paid and the child will need to provide biometrics.
WHO IS THIS VISA SUITABLE FOR
