Quick tourist visa questions!

Tourist visa 600 ~
Is the visa valid date from the time it is issued OR when the person enters the country?

How to get a tourist visa with multiple entries, is it possible to get one straight up without ever being to Aus before or does that rely more on your history of how many entries etc

thank you

I don't entirely understand your initial question.

A tourist visa is valid from the date it is granted until the date it expires as indicated in your grant letter (you must enter the county by this point).

The amount of time you can stay in the country on the visa starts when you enter the country.

As long as you enter the country when the visa is valid then you can stay the length of time that the visa lasts.

Is that what you meant?

Hi Miyuki, when the visa is granted you will get a time period (3 months, 6 months, 12 months etc) whatever the duration, the time period starts from the day you enter the country. Your visa will have a 'do not enter after' date so you must enter before then or your visa becomes invalid.

Whether your visa is an extended period with multiple entries is dependent on the information you supply on the visa application, and your background (high risk/ low risk country etc). I dont think it's unheard off to initially get granted an extended, multiple entry visa. Things like previous travel history/ visa compliance certainly help though.

We have had Visitor Visa's issued that are valid for 3 months from date of entry. The Visa also had an expiry date and think a must enter before date.

Also we have had Visitor Visa's issued for 12 months from date of grant (expiry was 12 months from date of grant) it also was a multi entry, but no requirement to leave until expiry.

Multi entry straight up from many countries is hard and does depend on travel history and other things. Recently some have been given multi entry after Partner and PMV applications.
