Applying for TFN after visa granted

Hi guys

Sorry if this has been covered... I'm getting some conflicting info.

My husband was granted his Partner (Migrant Sub class 100) visa in November 2015 (quicker than we expected!). He came to Australia to visit a few weeks later which was already planned before the visa grant, but he then returned to the US for work commitments just before Christmas.

He will be moving here permanently in 3 weeks (yay!!). My question is, can he apply online for a TFN while he is still in the USA? He technically activated his visa when he visited in November, so I am hoping this means he can now apply.

Any insight would be appreciated I hope that made sense

thanks!

No because when he applies online the ATO online application does a check with DIBP and it will come up with an error if they are not onshore. He can apply once he enters Australia.

Thanks for the advice We'll wait till he gets here. Do you know how long it usually takes for a TFN to be granted after you apply?

Service standard is 28 days but my husband got his in less than a week.
