Pregnant! Great news but timing is bad... Should we stay or go?

    Hi found out I was pregnant and this is the dilemma!

     

    Visa hopefully due in Nov

     

    Can only fly between Oct & Feb (ish)

     

    Police checks out of date in Feb (didn't think it would take so long!!)

     

    Baby due in May

     

    Medicals out of date in June!!!! When do I come over? Valid the visa or come to have the baby in Australia????!!!!

    If we come before the baby is born, what is the situation with giving birth? As I will be on a temporary visa will I have to pay for maternity care and hospitalisation etc?

     

    Need some advice!:err:

    Can't help much with the advice but just wanted to congratulate you on your pregnancy. Hopefully someone can advise you with regard to the entitlements for healthcare etc but I am imagining that it will be relatively straightforward.

    Personally I would carry on with your plans regardless and hopefuly the dates will all fall into place so that you can travel after Christmas and settle before your due date.

    Good luck with it all

    Congratulations. What a dilema though.

     

    I guess it depends how much you want to be in Australia, its certainly going to be more costly having the baby in Oz in terms of hospital care and child benefits thereafter. It sounds like you still have the option to keep your options open as long as you can validate your visa before Feb (when police checks run out) as you can travel between visa being granted in November ish and Feb. A nice wam winter holiday maybe.

     

    How long do temporary visa last for? Is it possible to applied for a PR visa?

     

    Dont get too stress, things will work out

     

    Take Care
