189 visa activation

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

 

A quick question - when we receive our visa grant (look at my hopeful and positive thinking😄), will the letter stipulate the date by when we need to activate it, or is there a general time frame from being granted the visa that we can work with?

 

I hope that makes sense ... 😜

Hi @Roxanne

 

The grant letter will give you a "Must Make First Entry to Australia Before" date which is generally a year from the earliest document date  of either your police clearance or medical. We received our grant on 01/09/2017 and had until 06/04/2018 to enter as our medicals had been done on 03/04/2017.

Our entry date is 29/11/2019. Our medicals were done 26/11/2018 and PCC 16/11/2018.

Question makes perfect sense, date will be clearly stated, depending on your circumstances this could lead to a pretty frantic trip to Aus....(and the whole family must go) But its all good fun 😉

If you start getting nervous about your likely timeline, given when you did PCC and medical, you have the option to redo one or both of them and re-upload on immiaccount. It costs some money but possibly less than the money you'd lose from having to take a hurried offer on your house, booking flights very short notice etc.
