Considering this visa thing is new to most of us here and having no idea of a time frame or how DIAC works and how unpredictable they are, I think Aussieboy's comment was a bit rude....Obviously she wants to be there like the rest of us. Common Courtesy would be nice, no need for rudeness.

Aussieboy, I generally love your posts but that was harsh. How exactly can one plan when it could be anywhere from 5 to 12 (or more) months before one's visa is granted? You can start packing, yes - but you can't pack everything. You need many things available on a day-to-day basis. You can look at container companies - but how can you reserve one when you can't even tell them what month you need it? You can put feelers out for people to rent your house from you -- but what if you rent it out and they're another 9 months processing your visa? It's expensive having to live somewhere else during that time. You can start getting things ready for your departure at work - but if you tell some companies TOO early that you're leaving they may let you go long before your visa is approved.

It doesn't matter how well you plan - there are a number of things you can ONLY do once your visa is approved, and those things all take time.

I myself am pretty fortunate that I will only have to get rid of a car - I live with family right now, so I won't have to be dealing with the offloading of a house or the ending of an apartment lease. I imagine I will still feel rushed, though, with all the packing I'm going to have to do. I've already started culling my belongings - donating things I don't use to family or to charity - but there's only so much I can do.

Ausie boy not every one knows for sure they will have there visa granted, so i pack all my things in storage just to be told i have being refused, i have to unpack all my things,
I cannot give my notice into work because i don't know if i am leaving or not, and remember you have to work your notice you cannot just leave.
I have a house and i have to arrange for people to rent it out which takes time, this is not something i can do before i know for sure if i have the visa,
I had a plan a very small plan and it was once i know for sure i have the visa i can start to tie up the last minute things, packing, container and there's another thing how can i book a container if i don't know the date, what's the point in paying thousands of euros for something i may never use, i needed to settle all my bills and cut off the water and electricity which isn't a flick of a switch in Malta, they need to come and do the reading and you need to sign for it and from that day forth you don't have power. So although i had a plan i still needed to tie up loose ends lol.

Hi All,

I found this on the immigration site

http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/part...-lodgement.htm Initial entry date to Australia

The department will advise you of the date you are required to enter Australia (your initial entry date) at the time of visa grant. Your initial entry date is usually the same as the expiry date for the validity of either your health or character checks, whichever is the earlier.

If you do not enter Australia by the initial entry date, your Partner visa may be cancelled.

If before your Partner visa is granted, you advise the department that you will not have sufficient time to reasonably finalise your affairs and make the necessary travel arrangements, the department may consider changing your initial entry date to a later date.
Note: In these circumstances, you may need to undergo new health and / or character checks before you can be granted your Partner visa.


I was sure I had read this somewhere before, hence my earlier post. It would appear though that this is one of those flexible guidelines for COs to follow. My initial entry date should have been May really due to my police checks running out but they gave me until August, however they must have deemed me a low risk to national security....

Kttykat

Sheepishly i apologise
My fiancee only needs to pack a suitcase and resign from work and say her good byes
Different countries, different circumstances and maybe my previous transient style of living previously. I was not thinking of a no rejection, yes that would definitely change the playing field. I will take that red card now CG

No red card necessary now that you've apologized. We're all learning here... and we all have different things to learn.
