Do you mean how long until you have to make your first entry to Australia?

Before the first of your Police checks or medical expires.

Yes, sorry for lack of clarity.
You pass everything in, you get your police checks and health check and finally you get word you've been granted - how long do they generally give you to sort yourself to move/enter Australia with your partner visa?

The first entry has to be before your first police check or medical expires. So depending on when you got you medical/PC, that'll be your last date of arrival (12 months from date on document). If you want to make sure you have more time, don't do submit your police check(s) and or medical at the beginning. Wait until they ask for it, and get it then.

In my case for example, I submitted the PCs about 3 months after I applied and waited for them to request the medical. First police check expires in mid-Nov 2017, therefore that would be my deadline to enter Australia. However, if you need more time to sort you move, you can just fly to Aus for a holiday to activate your visa and then go back to Canada to do whatever you need to do (finish work, organise the move etc)

Hey, may i ask what your situation with your partner was to be granted the subclass 100 straight away? I have been with my Australian partner for five years but not married, lived together for plus three years. I have not had any mention of it being put straight to 100 at all...

Usually when the (committed aspect of the) relationship is over three years long it goes straight to 100, as stated on border.gov.au

Long term relationship

If you have been in a long term relationship with your partner, your permanent Partner visa (subclass 100) will be granted immediately after the temporary Partner visa (subclass 309).


Long term relationship

We consider you have been in a long term relationship if, at the time you lodged your application, you had been with your partner for either:

three years or more
two years or more and you and your partner have a dependent child of your relationship.

You will need to provide documents that show you have been in your relationship for this length of time and if applicable, that you have a dependent child.
