Your children

Your children:

  • can be included in your application when it is lodged
  • can be added to your application after it is lodged via your ImmiAccount or by completing Form 1436 - Adding an additional applicant after lodgement (364 KB PDF).

Children coming to Australia must meet our health requirement. Usually, children not coming with you must also meet our health requirement.

Children over the age of 16 who are coming to Australia must also meet our character requirement.

Newborn children

If your child is born after you lodge your application but before the Prospective Marriage visa application is decided, tell us as soon as possible so that we can include them in your application.

More information about your children, including definitions of dependent children, is available at including family members in your application.
