Am I right in assuming you have a time period within which you must enter Australia, once you’ve received your spouse visa? If so, how long do they allow you please? I’m trying to plan when would be the best time to apply, if we’re aiming to be out there for the latter part of next year. Thanks.

It is almost always the expiry date of the medical or police clearance and they are valid for 12 months.

I know of no exceptions to that.

It's pretty impossible to plan for moving with partner visas to Australia. You app can be granted within a few weeks of applying or could take 2 years.

Like ampk said, based on police and medical, whichever expires (12 months from date) first. So best to not do those until requested if you want more time.

Thanks for the replies - that's good to know.
Our enter by date is September 2018. Our police check was done September 2017. In retrospect I wish I would have wait a little for my police check, but you won't hear me complain about how quick I got my grant.
