How many months do i have to move to Australia after visa granted

Hallo to everybody! As a new one to this forum i would like to ask a question. I want to know if my visa is granted, which is the time limit to move to Australia? Are there any restrictions?

There will be a latest enter by date specified with a visa grant and where a medical has been involved, the date will likely be based on a 12 months anniversary of having done the medical.

Our advice was "2-3 months after the grant of the visa" but, as Wanderer stated, definitely prior to the expiration of the 12 month anniversary of your medical check.

Thank you for your prompt replys guys! I will come back with a few more questions about the sponsored visa 176. At this time i am waiting for the result for the EA skill assessment for me and my wife. We lodged our applications in the middle of Sept. Do you think that we have any chance of receiving the results before January?

Hello Friend,

The Engineers Australia Assessment outcome letter is issued exactly after sixteen weeks (4 Months) from the date of application received by EA. There is no possibilities to receive before the turn around time.

Thank you my friend,

do you know what kind of evidence do i need to prove my genuine and continuing relationship with my wife? I am interested for the relative sponsored skilled visa 176. As i have found until now, i will include a bank account statement with our names and a mariage certificate of course. Do they need anything else?

You may find with the Xmas break holidays your EA assessment does get extended.
As for your wife, obviously if you are married and have been for some time, you should be able to supply relevant information to support her as a secondary applicant on a visa application you make.
That is separate to a relative sponsored visa and you need to have relatives as Citizens or PRs in Australia for that.
You would likely get quicker processing if you opt for state sponsorship via a State Management Plan and they should be active before too long.

Maybe I didn't explain it very well. Yes my wife has relatives in Melbourne. They are Australian citizens and at least one of them is willing to sponsor us. Thats why we are going to apply for the 176 visa. Both of us are skilled and we have applied to EA as electronics engineers. I have all the documents to support my wife and my 2 year old daughter of course as secondary applicants. My wife also meet the English language requirements and I can claim aslo the extra points for parnter skills.
-My concern is what kind of evidence do I need to prove my genuine and continuing relationship with her,as it is not well clarified in the booklet 6.
-With the situation i desribed above do you think that the processing time will take less than 18months?
-I haven't searched yet for the State sponsorship via a State Management Plan you mentioned. Are we eligible for this with our nominated occupaton?

Thank you in advance!

Have a look under Migration, Family and Visa Options to find a reference under eligibility for a spouse visa and Booklet #1
That is all for when you are actually sponsoring a partner, different to having a secondary applicant but similar principles apply though being married for a while and having a child should not see there being a problem.
Just provide whatever is asked for in the application form and use the Checklist.
Have a look at the What's New Link via Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration and check out reference to process priority and you will see that the SMP when active will have you at Priority #2 if Electronic Engineering is on the SMP for a state you choose and most states will probably have it.
There'll be a good chance of a processing time of within eighteen months and less of a chance with family sponsorship, it all being dependent on numbers of applications on hand, priority levels and migration budget.

Wanderer thank you very much for your replies and your time of course.

Although I am studying the DIACs web site since April i didn't pay attention to state sponsorship until now. As i found in some websites the Victorias SMP will be anounced in 1st of November. I couldn't understand how is possible to be sponsored from a state goverment and not be in priority group 2. I give you exactly as it written from the priority proccessing pdf. Is it possible after i receive the results of the assessment, to apply for the visa and for the sponsorship at the same time or i must obtain the sponorship first and then apply for the visa?

"Occupations on the SOL - Schedule 3 in effect at 1 July 2010 priority group 3

All applicants with a nominated occupation on the SOL - Schedule 3 are included in priority group 3. This includes both independent applicants and applicants sponsored by an Australian family member or nominated by a state or territory government (but not on a state migration plan). "
