First / Initial Entry to Australia

Does any one know the amount of time you get to make the initial entry once a Visa is granted? Is it approx 1 year after visa grant date or approximately 1 year after medicals are completed?

Is there any way to extend the time given to make the initial entry for a spouse and children if only the primary applicant can make it within the given time?

I have been given 3 months to make my initial entry because my wives medicals were delayed due to pregnancy.

I want to know of there is any way to extend the time given to make that initial entry for my wife and kids.

Is there any one who has gone through a similar situation?

Thank you

It is 1 year after your Medicals/police clearance are dated, whichever is earlier. The medicals and police clearance are considered valid for only 12 months by the DIAC.

As far as an extension, it is possible to do this through your CO under exceptional circumstances. He/she may ask you to undergo new medical checks/police clearance, though. Speak to you CO.

He can go for a visit, to validate the visa, and come back to marry and finish school.

What Alnaibii said is the only option. They are very strict with initial entry dates. Once it's set, that's it - I've heard they won't change it even for people unable to make it because they are sick and in the hospital.

He can certainly ask his CO, but I think the answer to changing it is likely going to be "no."

Hi Zaheerkhan -

I suggest your friend seek professional advice given what's at stake. There are limited options for lodging a request that the breach of the first entry date provision be waived, but this would generally have to be done after the breach has occurred.

As far as RRV, in my view that's unlikely if the visa is never validated in the first place.

Best,

Mark Northam

Does making a transit in Australia count as activating a visa?
