I'm afraid not being able to travel at all, when I read that :

"This visa allows you to:

work and study in Australia
travel to, enter and remain in Australia for five years from the date the visa is granted."

Does this mean you can enter but not leave, if you want to come back?
Where is "travel from"?

Cheers

It's a five year temporary visa. You can come and go as you please during the five year validity period of your visa. You cannot enter, or remain in, Australia once this five year period ends.

Hi Bec and Ange, it's a similar story for me.
My original visa arrived within a couple of weeks in 2011 but the renewal has been lodged for over a year now.
Application was sent to the Sydney office last June.
My relationship has broken down, with no contact and I had no current address or paperwork for my kiwi ex girlfriend.
I don't know if she is still in Australia. I advised of this on the form and had previously informed immigration of the relationship breakdown and my subsequent change of address.

It's a difficult visa to get much information on and I haven't met anyone else on it so it's good to see others in the same situation. I'll update when I get any information
Thanks Vin

Hey mate. Any update on your situation? I'm in the same boat.
Ex-wife was kiwi. We divorced a couple of years ago. I applied 17 months ago for a renewal. We don't have any contact at all. She lives in New Zealand now.

I'm now on my second bridging visa B so I can leave the country to visit family.
Fourteen months since applying,
not good news to hear how long it's been for you but then again good to know I'm not alone wondering what's going on!
It's very unsettling waiting. Hoping to hear good news from someone on the forum soon

Hi,
Wondering if you have heard back from immigration office? Just checked the 461 visa eligibility and couldn't find anything like renewal for current visa holders!! I believe there has to be a change... Desperately seeking for some clues..

I just checked and it still says "Extend your stay: You can apply for another New Zealand Citizen Family Relationship (Temporary) visa (subclass 461)."

From what I understand it's not really a renewal but just doing the whole application again. Got four years left on my first one.

Does anyone have any updates on their stories. If I select that I have separated, do I still have to fill in my ex partner's contact details?

Hi. Just wondering if you have any more news on this. I'm in the same situation. Did you leave the section blank where it asks for the details of the New Zealand citizen on the 147 form?
