What happens next when Visa is granted?

Hi Guys,

Iam still waiting for the Visa but i wanted to ask what happens in the case that the visa is granted? Do they send you a piece of paper or take your passport?

How does it happen and how long do you have to move to Australia? Is there any website that explains all this of what happens next?

Thanks in advance//

Hi NZlander,

You should get a grant email &/or a letter (my husband got called to come and collect the letter from the HC and we got the email a couple of days later)
This should explain everything. You have about a year to enter australia.
The letter advised that there is no label required as the visa is linked to the passport number, but he should keep the letter as a reference when travelling as it has the visa grant # on it.

Hope that helps

Thanks for your reply,

- But does the sponser have to be travelling with applicant right? Or there are no rules on this..? Do you have something on a website documenting this?

- From what i understand it does not mention on the grant letter that you have One year to enter the country?

Also how do you actually leave the country for example without have a Visa stamp on the passport? Is this grant letter enough? i really think they should have some sort of a visa stamp on the passport?

Hello,

The sponsor doesn't have to travel with the applicant. In my case, my husband was in Aus and I travelled alone. I didn't have a visa stamp on my passport but I got a copy of the grant letter. It is enough, no need for the stamp.

Sorry my bad.. the date of entry depends on your partners health/character checks..

please see what was written on the actual letter below:


Initial entry to Australia
You are required to make your first entry to Australia on this visa by 20 September 2013. This date is linked to the expiry date of the health/character check that you undertook before you were granted your Spouse (Provisional) (Subclass 309) The initial entry date cannot be changed and, if you do not enter Australia by this date, your Spouse (provisional)(subclass 309) visa may be cancelled.

- The sponsor does not have to travel with the applicant.
