Partner Visa granted a bit too early

Recommended Posts


I applied for a partner Visa 309/100 last year (November 2018) while currently living in France.

I have been granted this Visa in June 2019. I am very happy about it but I wasn't expecting it so early.

We are now planning to move permanently to Australia with our 2 kids in 2020, we were thinking around July.

On my grant notification (100), it says :

Date of Grant : 03 June 2019

For First entry, arrive by : 01 March 2020

Must not arrive after : 03 June 2024

My question is : Do you think there is a way of changing the first entry date or I just need to travel there once before March 2020 before moving later in the year?

Thanks for your help!

You cannot extend your first entry date. This date is connected to when your medicals and police checks were done. You only need to enter Australia by 01 March 2020. You can then depart immediately after that if you want.
