Partner visa 801

Hi,

After 15 months i finally received my grant for 801.
Now was i reading through the email and there is something i don't really understand. I thought permant is forever but i read this:

Your visa has been granted for a specific stay period. The stay period is the period of time that you are
permitted to stay in Australia. The period is between the date that you are legally entitled to enter Australia
and the date that your visa expires. On or before the visa expiry date you will need to leave Australia or make
other arrangements with us before this date.

The date is 28th November 2022.

Can anyone please tell me what this means and what i have to do before the 5 yr period ends?

I've been in Australia since 2014.

Thank you!

Resident Return visa (subclasses 155 and 157)

You have to renew it every five years.
Better make sure you are in Australia before you receive the new Visa.

My partner was informed that his PR visa has expired when he was going through the customs gate at airport to overseas. It then took him more than 3 weeks to get it renewed when he was overseas.

But you don't have to renew it if you don't need to travel overseas at the end of every five years period.....to save $$$ renew fee....:-)

Permanent residency is permanent; the travel facility is not.

This made me wonder what they meant by it.
Made me think i have to leave Australia on that date.

So I'd only have to do a Return visa? Thats alright then.

yes. or just become an Australian citizen because visa status is irrelevant once you have that.

There are many things I love about Australia (obviously), but i am boggled by the bureaucracy that it creates. I went through the US immigration process (or rather my ex did much of the work) and it was so much more straight forward. For example, what is the rational in the distinction between onshore / offshore applications. Why does one have to leave the country once you get your grant. They could have you come to an office and process you there and call it a day. Many of the Canadian and American ex-pats I have met in Australia refer to it as a nannie state in terms of rules and regulations that govern everyday life. This is also extremely evident in the construction industry. I worked with many on projects here in the US and the Caribbean and the amount of paper generated by the Australians and the Brits was voluminous to say the least compared to North Americans. Again, this is not meant as a slight to Australia or Australians as I do think it is one of the best countries in the world along with Canada to live. Unfortunately the US has lost its way bigtime...
