Going to Aus while waiting for 309 visa

Recommended Posts

Guest kateandollie

Hi Guys,

 

We applied for our defacto visa on the 17th Aug, so going by the time frame we should be issued our visa on the 17th Feb.

 

Does anyone know if it is frowned upon to enter Australia a few weeks before this date on a tourist visa?

 

It is my mums 50th and Id like us both to be there for that.

 

Thanks,

 

Kate :biggrin:

You can, but you need to let your case officer know in advance what dates you will be in Oz. This is because if you have applied offshore, you must be offshore when your visa is granted. So they will need to know when you enter and leave Oz, so that they don't grant it during that period.


applied for 309/100 19/1/10, 309 VISA GRANTED 28/4 - arrived Sydney 4/2/11, second stage visa app lodged Jan 2012, PR visa (100) GRANTED 7/6/12, now waiting for babywellie to come join us!:biggrin:

Thats good to know... Once we know the dates for sure we will ask our case officer if this is ok.. fingers crossed.

Having to leave Aus is a good excuse to go on a mini holiday :)
