Registering a birth & new passport


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Hoping someone will have first hand experience on this.


I'm due to give birth next month, we're both on 457 visas, my partner the main visa holder has a British Passport & I have a Irish.


We're in the middle of a 190 Application and so the the baby's arrival will stall our application, thus we need the birth registered, a passport & a medical ASAP.


1- Registering the birth as a temporary resident.. How to go about this? Assuming we need a British birth certificate? How long does it take & where do we do it?


2- Passport, where from? How long/price? What documents will we need??


Glad of any info :)

I don't know the answer about registering the birth, but as you're temporary visa holders then you'll need a British passport for the child, as you don't have PR status then the child isn't classed as a citizen and therefore not eligible for an Australian passport (as I understand it).
