Did you select the correct application ?

Family: Migration to Australia by a Partner (300,309/100,820/801)

You don't need a TRN to start this one.

The TRN relates to :

Family : Sponsorship for a Partner to Migrate to Australia (300,309/100,820/801)

You should only require the visa grant number to start the application. A TRN will be generated once you save the application.

As for the ETA date. That is the last date he can enter Australia on that visa. he can stay for 3 months after entering Australia.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply.

I only used the TRN to look up his ETA to see if there were conditions added, I didn't use it for starting the application - and yes that's the one we selected.

What I don't understand on the ETA expiry date is, he is already in the country, so why would it say that 8th March is the date he can enter australia by. He entered Australia on 8th December, so shouldn't it say that's the date he must LEAVE by?

The only criteria I can think that could apply from that list is the on where it says that his current location cant be confirmed.

Can you tell from that screenshot if he has definitely not had a "no further stay" applied? And, is it definitely correct that we can apply for the 820 when he is on an ETA?

Thank you so much for your help, I am just in a complete state of panic. I cant handle the thought that he's not going to be able to stay here - his ETA ends in just a few weeks

I've spent months preparing our application, this has to be some kind of online error right?

I suggest you call the Department tomorrow, so they can confirm that there is no "no further stay" condition attached to the visa and help you figure out why you can't proceed with the online application.

If it is some sort of technical issue, you can still lodge a paper application instead.

The expiry date of the ETA refers to the validity of the visa, which is 12 months from the visa grant date.Technically you could enter Australia on the very last day and stay for 3 months from that date.

OK....but the visa grant date was actually in August/September......the date on there seems to be exactly 3 months from his last entry, not 12 months from the grant of the visa.

I don'y know how I'm going to handle waiting till tomorrow to find this out.

Im sorry to be so emotional, we've just been through a great deal of struggles to get this far, and now to see this message when I thought we were all good to apply has literally knocked the wind out of me. I need him here with me

According to what at least one migration agent has said, with these multiple entry visitor visas, as long as they enter prior to the Last Entry Date (12 months from the date the visa was granted), they can stay 3 months from that point.

I know it's hard, but there is not much you can do today and there really is no point speculating about it. The expiry date of the ETA is not particularly relevant at the moment, so don't worry about it.

Wait till tomorrow, call DIBP (or go to a DIBP office if there is one nearby) , be prepared to be on hold for a long time and find out what is going on.

Best of luck and keep us posted.

OK thank you. If there is no "no further stay" condition then there shouldn't be a problem for us to apply onshore though, is that correct? Is there any other conditions which they could have applied that would prevent us from applying?

Hugs! This must be so incredibly stressful for you! I'm sure it's just a glitch or something easily fixed. You have your husband's passport with his date of arrival in Australia after NZ, right? I would try and go to an office in person with all his travel documents and speak to someone in person.

In the meantime, as hard is it is to stop worrying, I would try and relax and put this out of your mind until tomorrow. Maybe have a cup of hot tea and a bubble bath and then relax with your honey for the evening.

I'm sure that by this time tomorrow everything will have fallen into place and your application will be on it's way xxxx

Btw, I'm sure it's not due to a NFS because we did exactly what you did. We went to NZ for three days when his three months was almost over and we had no issues at all with our application. We were married when we left for NZ so that might have made a difference, but prior to that my husband went back to the US for a week before coming back for his second lot of three months (NZ happened after the second 3 months). My husband (also from America) never got a NFS and it sounds like he did more "visa hopping" than your husband

Thank you star Hunter. I'm praying that it is just a glitch. We've just poured a heap of money into our wedding and all I can think in my panic right now is, how can I afford to quit my job and go to the states with him... Because I cannot be without him. I'm just not capable of it after being apart for 2 years and now for this to happen when we have our life here planned... I'm just gutted and can't comprehend him going back to the states without me

I can't see it being anything serious, Hun. I know my opinions aren't worth a lot in the grand scheme of things but it just doesn't make sense to me that it could be anything other than a mistake.

You have not done anything that multiple other couples haven't done in your shoes. Your husband is from a low risk country, he didn't overstay his visa and I presuming he hasn't done anything since being in Australia that would make him ineligible (work without permission etc).

I'm sure everything will be fine xxxx
