Yes they gave you from 1 August until 2 December to start your first visit to Australia.

Her date of entry can be 1 day before August 2014.

No stay can be longer than 3 months at a time.

She only submitted the application for a 3 months tourist visa. So when the grant letter arrived, it said that Must not arrive after 1 August 2014. So we thought that she could only live in Australia for 3 months but she has to get into Australia before 1 August 2014 ? Is it what that means?

She came here on 2nd of September I think. That is why it is showing the expiry date of 2 December. We thought they gave her a year to enter into Australia only but then stay only for 3 month?

We only applied for 3 months visa. So, at the moment that's too good to believe for us I will only keep my hopes high when I get some confirmation tomorrow from DIAC.

Anyone else thinking the same as @ampk?

Everything makes sense now, Don't worry, the expiry date is for your current visit only as the maximum stay after each entry is 3 months. You have got a 1 years multiple entry visa. Even my parents applied for 3 months tourist visa and they got 2 year multiple entry visa but only 3 months at a time.

We also only applied for a single entry but for 6 months after the first was refused. I spoke to a very nice guy at the embassy and our next visa was approved but only given 3 months.

But it was given as a multi entry 3 month - We did get our 6 months in total.

But be sure to call them, sure you will be happy with the answer even if it is a few expensive weekends away.

Ok, Here is an update. I just rang DIAC. They said she can come back multiple times before 1 August 2014 but she can only stay for a max of 3 months each time. Even if she comes back on 1st of August 2014, she can stay for 3 months!!

Thank you so much for your help guys! I am feeling really happy

Visa must be used before the expire date - you have used it ,so she can come and go until 3 months after that August 2014 date.
I just phoned the DIAC and they said, she will be questioned at the airport if she comes back immediately. Are there any chances that they might deny the entry if she comes back next day?? I am a little sad again
