Delay in moving after 309 activated

Recommended Posts

Guest Redster

Hi guys,


In May 2012 I applied for the 309 spousal visa, which was granted in November 2012.


In December we went to Australia for Christmas so I activated the visa at that time.


My question is, what happens if we don't now move to Australia for, let's say, the foreseeable future?


My wife, the Aussie, is pregnant and we are expecting an arrival in August. We are currently earmarking a February move, but I'm curious what would happen at the two year stage, when they come to review the 309 for upgrading to the full visa, 100 if memory serves, and we have not moved.


I don't recall seeing anything specific about this when we did the application.


Any thoughts, suggestions or links to information would be appreciated.

As long are you are still together, you will still be able to move from the TR to the PR visa, there is no condition that you must be living in Australia.
