Hi,

I have received invitation to apply for Visa 189 (Offshore) and would like to know what are the conditions for this visa type.

Activation: As an offshore applicant (currently residing in Thailand), once visa is granted, is it correct that I am required to enter Australia to activate my PR within the date given in the grant letter? How does the first and last entry date calculated upon?

Maintaining PR: After activating my visa, is there a minimum length of stay before I can travel outside Australia?

As I still have commitment in my hometown, is it possible to activate my PR and leave to reside in other countries (e.g. Thailand) and return to Australia within the Visa 189 expiry date per the following case?

(Understood, visa 189 is valid to travel to and from Australia for 5 years)

- Jan 2017 : granted PR, activate PR
- Jan 2017 to Jan 2019 : leave Australia to reside Thailand
- Jan 2019 to Jan 2021: return to reside in Australia

I would appreciate clarifications on this. Thank you very much in advance!
