Thanks for ur useful information. My husband is going to submit his partner visa application in Tokyo, but he has his ETA visa as well.
Can he come to visit me after his lodge ? What's that activation mean ?
If he happen to in AUS with me at that time, can he fly to NZ for visa activation ? Or need to return back to Tokyo ??
