S/C 100 Granted - First Entry Questions (Possible Delay)

Hi everyone,

Been a while, but I had a question regarding my first entry on my s/c 100.

For background, I was granted the visa in July of this year while my wife and I are living offshore back in Canada. According to myVEVO it says to enter before 17 July 2021 and must not arrive after 17 July 2025.

I guess my questions are: The current state of international travel may stop me from returning to Australia before the "enter before date" listed on myVEVO - is there a way to apply for an extension on this "enter before date"? If so, how do I go about doing that?

What does the "must not arrive after" imply other than not arriving after the specified date? Am I able to enter Australia anytime before that date, or is that just the expiry of the travel facility on the PR?

Thanks for your help, and sorry if this has been asked to death already.

Cheers.

Hey,

Initial entry date info here: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help...r-request-form - no worries on that count.

The “must not arrive after” date is the expiry date of your visa if you are offshore. ‘Travel facility’ is not a term I like!

Hi Paul, thanks for the reply!

Just to follow up, the initial entry date info, it would appear that this form is used when you've made travel plans to Australia after your initial entry date has passed, is that correct?

If so, I should only be using that when I am ready to make plans to return to Australia?

Is "travel facility" a bad word these days? This "must not arrive after" is simply the date my visa would expire if I don't make entry or come to Australia?

Precisely - the initial entry date is a visa condition and they can't give you dispensation on it until you've actually breached it ...

Only with me ;-) and yes ... you can travel in and out of Australia until that date and then you can remain in Australia indefinitely. If you want to travel after that date, you will either need to have become a citizen or apply for a Resident Return Visa (RRV).

Eh? likes this.

Perfect. Hopefully I will still make it back before the initial entry, if not, I'm glad there's something in place to allow me to still make it.

In your experience is the Department granting these dispensations as people have been unable to make it back due to COVID?

Believe you me, I fully plan on becoming a citizen upon re-settling in Australia. No more visa's, paperwork etc. Haha.
