100 and 309 partner visa extension?

My partner has had his partner subclass 100 and 309 (PR) approved since February 5th 2020 and has been trying to join me in Australia but has had 2 plane tickets cancelled twice due to covid19.
Normally he must enter the country before the 5th February 2021 or his visa could be cancelled as it needs to be activated to give him his PR.
"So due to Covid-19, there may be some difficulties entering Australia by the expired date on his grant. Is it possible for him to have it extended on compassionate grounds?" If so can I contact someone to request an extension (and who would that be?) or would it have to come from him.
Please advise. Thank you.

You can apply to have the entry date changed.

Subclass 309 Basic Eligibility
This visa is meant for a married or de facto partner of an Australian citizen, or an Australian permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen to enter and remain in Australia. The visa once approved will be granted for most applicants to stay in Australia for a period of fifteen (15) to twenty-four (24) months until the Department for Home Affairs decide on applicant’s permanent visa (subclass 100) or until such time the application is withdrawn. In some circumstances, including where an applicant has been in a long term relationship before he/she applied for this visa, the Department for Home Affairs may not have the applicant stay on this subclass 309 and instead grant him/her the permanent visa immediately after the grant of temporary 309 subclass.

Hi Westly Russell,
To have the date entry changed or extended would we need to apply via email directly to the case officer or send a letter out to them or both?
Thanks for your help.

Email the office that granted the 309/100 with details of confirmed travel plans once you have them.
