Oh wowcollege girl i was so hoping i was correct but sadly u are probably right. I feel so bad for him. Have u heard of others with such a short entry date between visa issuing and date u must enter by? Seems so unfair. But guess its good lesson for us all to check our partners grant ourselves. I didn't believe my own until I saw it in writing

Aussieboy,

I think you've just demonstrated why I case managed my fiance's application. The misunderstanding or misreading of documentation is quite common - things get lost in the translation. My fiance has misread documentation a couple of times, not because she is silly, but the intent of the wording is lost on translation from English to Cebuano.

Ring or go and see DIAC, explain the situation. I'm sure they can help. If not, a trip to the Australian Embassy in Manila may be required to rectify the situation.

I feel we have covered the fact that The Embassy will not entertain any excuses. What should have been done etc etc is of no consequence anymore for Aussie...I feel if we need to help its up to us to research other forums n sites and see if anyone else came up against this scenario which id say would be extremely rare...

Praying that the dates may be a clerical error is the best hope now or what Mark's experience can offer Aussie...Im sure he is one gutted bloke now!!!

Unfortunately, yes, I have heard of people given that short a time. Generally if it's less than a month they'll extend it out to a month. It doesn't happen often that it's that short, but it does happen.

This is the only possible good news I've found so far:

From the US's Australian Embassy Website:

Quote:
Missing the entry date

While you are not obligated to relocate and move all of your belongings to Australia by the set entry date, you must make an entry into Australia by the initial entry date on your visa as this is a condition that is attached to your visa.

Should you not be able to enter Australia before your initial entry date your visa is liable for cancellation. Cancellation in this circumstance is discretionary and you would be asked to submit reasons for not meeting the initial entry date prior to any cancellation action being taken. If you had compelling circumstances that prevented you from entering Australia the decision officer may then decide not to cancel your visa at this time.
(Emphasis mine.)

So it looks like there may be hope!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK just thinking out loud here....For a Phil. National, when booking a flight, the airline usually wants to see a copy of your visa you are travelling on, especially if there is no return flight booked...

So did they not pick up that the entry date was wrong?
