Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.

Getting the Kids to Australia

Here's my situation. Me and my wife are already here in Australia and the kids are back home in Pinas. We are on a student visa previously and now we are granted a PR visa. The kids should be here before December 16. I am thinking of getting my mother-in-law to accompany them in getting here instead of us fetching them. Anyone ever done this? Is it hard to get a tourist visa for that reason? And my another concern is what document will they ask at the airport/immigration in Manila or Sydney because the kids are travelling with neither parent.
