By entering and clearing immigration at any airport in Australia will automatically activate your visa.
Thanks AusIndo

I read something similar yesterday on another post but wanted to confirm. Our issue is that the 1st October is our 10 month mark, police check expires on the 22 October (we did it before we applied), I have to give one months notice at work and we are attending a wedding in Scotland on November 1st. We really want to be in Australia ASAP so doing a visa run for just a few weeks seems silly. I think I'll email our CO and get an update. Thanks again.

You could maybe redo your police check and resubmit. Might be possible. When do your medicals expire?

Get another police check as soon as you can, submit it and notify your CO. We were worried about not having enough time to enter Australia with our original police check expiring in December so we uploaded a new one. The CO confirmed she'd seen it and when we got the grant a few days ago, the entry date was set to April when the medical runs out instead of December.

Another person applying from Berlin was requested to submit a new police check since the original one expired, which means their grant is taking longer. In other cases the CO can extend the validity for a short period but that's not guaranteed (so you may have to get to Australia in a rush). I've also heard of COs asking the applicant how soon they are able to enter Australia and if they'd rather resubmit the police clearance before the visa is granted.

Once the visa is granted they can't change the entry date so your best bet would be to apply for a new police check now to give yourselves time to organise your move.
