Activating 491 visa

A blessed day, fellow pinoyau.info members!

My wife and I were granted a 491 visa on November 9, 2020. For our first entry, we have to arrive by Nov 9, 2021.

Now this is the exciting part. We have just found out that my wife is 4 weeks pregnant (after waiting for almost 9 years!). As this is our first child, we are cautious and we reckon it is safer and more convenient for her and for the baby if we wait until she gives birth here in Singapore before doing the visa activation. She's due in August, and we are planning to fly to Australia in October 2021 (without the baby yet).

I am hoping to land a job in Australia in October 2021, and I will stay there (hello, 491 income requirement). My wife will return to Singapore and she and the soon-to-be-born child will then join me in Australia in February 2022, when the child turns 6 months.

This is feasible, right?

Thank you for taking the time to read this post.

Any input is greatly appreciated:-)

    @rellim115 If your baby will be born in Australia, he/she will automatically get the same 491 visa. If born outside australia, you need to apply for a 491 subsequent entry visa.

    @fgs, many thanks for this info. My wife thinks she deserves to enjoy her 3 months paid maternity leave + other maternity benefits in her current company, where she has been working for over 10 years haha. Another reason is that we have a community here in Singapore, so she feels more comfortable giving birth here.

    Applying for a 491 subsequent entry visa, I need to provide the child's passport and pay the corresponding fee, right? I believe it does not take long to process. Thanks again for the reply.

    @rellim115

    Theres no standard processing time for this visa but also takes months if not a year. Application fee is $4000+ kasi kahiy na new born sya kasi ang magiging main applicant( as what i know). So I suggest, dito na lang sya manganak. You are entitled to medicare so walang gasto sa hospital.

    Suggest ko rin po na Better to give birth sa Au.
    -we'll never know but ayaw natin ma-expose si baby at 6months to travel to Au if may covid pa
    -mas ok po na bumiyahe na kayo as earliest na mas safe sa wife nyo & sa baby
    Congrats po ☺️

    Makisali nadin po, kasi waiting kami for 491 visa approval, and while waiting we are also trying to be pregnant po. If dumating, we will consider it a great blessing.

    Sa case po namin if ever malaman namin na pregnant pero wala pang grant, may idea po ba kayo if pwede namin idagdag si baby as dependent? Or pwede lang yun if naipanganak na and we are still waiting for the grant.

    Thanks po.

    Sabi sa info na nasa DHA, inform mo lang sila once you have had the baby na. kapag hindi pa finalised ung 491 nyo, pwede siya idagdag.pero kapag finalised na, apply lang si baby ng subseqent entrant visa. Bayad ulit ng $4,045 haha.

    I would to inquire if there is a breach of visa conditions after the visa grant of 491 when you applied
    as a single applicant and change to status from single to engaged or single to married after the visa grant?

    Visa condition(s)
    8578 - Notify us if your passport or contact details change:
    You must let us know within 14 days if any of the following change while you are in Australia on this visa:
    • the address where you live
    • your email address
    • your phone number
    • your passport details including your name
    • your employer's address
    • the address where you work.
    8579 - Live, study and work in a designated regional area:
    While you are in Australia, you must live, study and work in an area that is on the list of designated regional areas in an instrument.
    If you hold a subclass 491 visa, the area must have been on the list of designated regional areas on the date we granted your visa.
    If you hold a subclass 494 visa and you are a primary visa holder, the area must have been on the list of designated regional areas when your
    most recently approved nomination was lodged by your employer.
    If you hold a subclass 494 visa and you are a secondary visa holder, the area must have been on the list of designated regional areas when the
    primary visa holder's most recently approved nomination was lodged by their employer.
    Understanding your work rights
    The Department is working with the Fair Work Ombudsman to help employees and employers understand and follow Australian Workplace
    laws.
    Information on pay rates, shift calculations, leave arrangements and notice and redundancy entitlements is in the Pay and Conditions Tool
    (PACT).
    The Fair Work Ombudsman website has more information on workplace rights and entitlements for visa holders and migrant workers.
    8580 - Provide evidence of your live, study or work address if requested:
    If we send you a letter asking you to, you must provide us with evidence of:
    • the address where you live
    • the address all your employers
    • the addresses where you work
    • the address of any school, college or university that you attend.
    The letter will tell you what sort of evidence we need and how you should send it to us.
    We might ask for evidence of all your addresses or only some of your addresses.
    You will have 28 days to provide us with the evidence we have asked for.
    8581 - You must attend an interview if we ask you to in a letter:
    We might ask you to attend an interview at a specific address or we might conduct the interview over the phone or internet. The letter will
    contain the details of the interview time and how or where you must attend.

    Kayo exemption anoh?

    hi, @lecia.para sa akin ba ung reply mo? haha. antay kami mag-open ang borders pero sa current developments parang matatagalan. pag-asa na lang ung travel bubble between australia and SG. January 2022 target para sabay sabay na kaming lahat:-) kumusta jan?:-)

    Oks naman dto. Wla naman na cases, pa isa isa tapos lockdown na kagad. Nun mga December pagod kami sa hospital kasi nga covid, tag 25,000 and up covid samples everyday.. Ngayon pahinga na..

    Hello po sa inyong lahat. 😊
    Ask lang po ako kung ano pong first step kapag gustong mag trabaho sa AU na kasama ang family.
    We are 4 po. me , my hubby and our 2kids.
    Sana po mapansin if anong first step na gagawin? First timer po. Hehe si hubby po sana ang mag aapply. He's an Animal Trainer here po sa PH.
    Sana po may makapansin. Thank you 💗
