"Notice for Skilled Visa Migration..." are these documents real?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am fascinated by these two very similar documents which seem to give assurance to holders of 189, 190, 489 and 491 visas that they are under no pressure to enter by their "initial entry date"

The fact that i can only seem to find these documents on the websites and not on the homeaffairs site is concerning. I came accross them whilst googling along the same terms out of concerns for an offshore friend who has a fast approaching "initial entry" date.

can anyone help? I've tried all kinds of combinations of searh terms to get the document directley from Homeaffairs site without any luck 

@Raul Senise or any of the other agents, have you guys seen or heard of this?

 

I got the .pdf below from THE MIA WEBSITE 

Information on first entry to Australia.pdf

 

 

 

its a bit different to the picture version below from THIS AHWC WEBSITE

These are genuine documents and you can get them directly from the Department.

The information is correct.

It is part of the auto response when you email Skilled Support.

That is good news.  The question is, is there an equivalent document for use by holders of other permanent visas such as a partner visa?

No ... not unless they can arrange a travel exemption, which is unlikely. It means that the Department won’t seek to cancel a 491 visa if you miss the initial entry date on the grant letter.
