Cut off time to migrate using Visa Subclass 189

Recommended Posts

Hi All,
I was granted the skilled visa Subclass 189 on 15 June 2015. I understood from my agent that I can move to Australia anytime as long as the arrival date is before the expiry date of the visa (15 June 2020) - after which i have to apply for another visa type if i wish to travel outside Australia.  
  • Is my understanding correct (bold text above)?
  • When is the cut off time after which I wont be allowed to enter Australia with my current visa?

Thank you for your support.

I assume you made an activation visit soon after your visa was granted?    If you did,, you must move permanently before the date marked on your visa, otherwise you will lose your visa. 

If you did not make an activation visit, then you have already lost the visa.
