Adding newborn to subclass 189

How could we add a newborn baby to subclass 189 visa?

If visa is not lodged before, do we have to add newborn child as dependent?
If yes, it would be taking weeks to get a passport and how is that one can add child as a dependent without a passport number? I am assuming system would not allow me to, am I correct?

If visa was lodged before, border.gov.au states that we can go ahead let the CO know by 1022 form. But, do we do this before birth certificate issued, or do we need to attach birth certificate and/or passport as well?

I am trying to take time in the invite period so that when CO will advice for Medicals, I could do it provided my wife has delivered. Someone can throw light on how to add child before lodging if its a newborn.

Thanks!

That's a good question. I don't have a clear answer for that.

You'd need a birth certificate, which should be provided immediately after birth, no?

Plus a medical couldn't be done while your wife is pregnant I believe.

It takes 2-3 weeks for a birth certificate in my case, though it could be sooner. They should have kept the rule based on invitation date, not based on lodging date. Seems confusing!

Whatever it is, I am pretty sure you won't have any issue. You can just give DIBP a call for clarification.

Hi

It is not that complicated you can ask your CO to hold the application till babies documents get ready. When they are ready (Birth certificate, Passport and a photo) upload under main applicant with the for 1022. At the same time you can email all to your CO. Within few weeks (cannot predict) CO will contact you for medicals.
