Hi,

You could leave the country at any time. However, it is really important to activate your visa and enter Australia before your initial entry date.

Regards,
Denise

Denise is correct in that there will be a latest date for your visa by which it has to be activated, ie., meaning that you have entered Australia and then if it is a PR visa you have been issued with you will have the right to come and go as you please for 5 years.

But given your intention, there is no harm in contacting immigration and asking if you could have a lengthy extension given to your enter by date, citing the economic concern you have and the worse that can happen is that you get a refusal.

At best you may avoid the cost of a return airfare just to come here to activate the visa.

When is the lastest date for activation? I can't find the information on any website. 6 months after granted visa? 12 month? Or something else?

Have you looked on the visa if you have had one inserted in your passport or on whatever advice you got about receiving it.

If nothing there I'd make contact with wherever the advice came from.

I can't remember the exact post, but someone mentioned recently they had a couple of months after their visa was issued to enter Australia.

Hi,

You could find this information on your visa grant notification letter. You should enter Australia and validate your visa before your initial entry date

Hopefully this information helps.

Regards,
Denise
