    First Entry Acknowledgement

    Hi, my first entry date is September 2020. When the CoronaVirus was declared as Pandemic in March 2020 and the Australian Government was planning to close their borders, i immediately took an available flight to Melbourne (though my state is South Australia). Stayed there for 24 hours and then came back. Now, i am confused whether my First Entry was acknowledged or not. I checked my VEVO account and the VISA Status says "In Effect" but shouldn't it be "Activated"? Any idea guys? Is there any email address of Department of Home Affairs where i can contact to get this sorted out? There are hundreds of email addresses i can see online but i don't see any for 489 VISA holders. Any lead would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! Best, R

    First arrival

    Hi All, Looking for some real world experience here. We are hopeful of receiving a grant of 190 for NSW. We will most likely be arriving without jobs (although you never know). Assuming it is going to take 3 months to get a job, how much money would we require to cover that initial 3 months? I realise this is a "piece of string" question, but I'm keen to see what others spent in this initial period, given my career it is likely to be Sidney that we end up living in. Thanks...

    Visa landing question

    Hi We have recently been granted our 190 visas and I have been asked to travel to Australia to undertake a job interview and testing. As the dependant applicant (my wife is the main applicant) can I travel on my own for my first entry etc Many thanks
  4. I have a GSM Visa 175 approved on OCT 2012. My "enter before" date is SEP 2013. I am planning to travel to Australia on 26 JUN 2013. I am a Indian Citizen / Software Developer with 7 years of experience. Can someone experts in the group help me with some details please? What are all the documents which I should carry when I enter Australia? Is there a minimum days/duration when I have to stay while entering Australia? As I am using my vacation to reach Australia, I am planning to reach on 26th JUN 2013 morning and take the return flight at 26th JUN 2013 Evening at Sydney? Would that be ok? What can I expect in the port of entry? Any specific questions or details will be asked? Should I have to leave the airport before returning back? I am planning to stay in the airport itself and take the return flight back home. Is there any additional things which I have to take care while entering Australia for the first time? Any details/help much appreciated.
  5. GSM- 175 Skilled immigrant I am yet to make my first entry in AU. I am a new bie for the AU-Tax and money transfers, so please bear with me and see if you answer these basic queries: 1. How much money can be taken in the first entry (Validation trip)? How much is the tax on it ? What is the best form that it should be taken in ie: cash or what.. 2. Other friends in this thread talk about money transfers being made before they even enter AU, are these transfers taxed? 3. I will continue to stay in AU while my husband will return. He will subsequently finance me from outside AU by transfering money quarterly/ monthly. What will be the tax on it? 3. Will he be taxed for his earnings if he continues to work abroad in another country after returning from first validation visit ? (That country is tax-free )
