I heard that from someone who just returned from Australia. He went there on a student visa and came back after graduation. I find it little strange since I have not found it anywhere on the website!!

I'm honestly not qualified to answer so it could easily exist - but I have never heard of this...

When a visa gets granted it will hve conditions attached. These conditions are the ones you need to adhere to to keep your visa valid.

For instance I am on a 457 visa, I can leave and renter the country as much or as little as I want for as long as I want over a 4 year period as long as I maintain the following conditions 8107 (limited work rights) 8503 (maintain adequate health insurance).

Permanent residency visas are just that permanent residency, if your permanent residency visa expires and you need to travel outside of the country you need a resident return visa wich will have its own criteria that need to be fulfilled (for example 2 out of 5 years in Australia).

The only thing I can think of is if your friend has gotten confused with an "enter by" date to activate their visa - they would be required to enter by a date in order for the visa to be in effect.

Thanks for your reply. I just checked my visa grant letter and that says I can come in and leave as many times as I want. There is nothing like the 6 month condition there! Yes, it could be that he got confused over the first entry date with this thing. Anyways I will check further. Appreciate your clarification

Cheers!!

It is only strange if you have PR and don't know your visa requirements - as issued with visa grant letter.
