How long after validation is 309 visa valid?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

We're applying for the 309 spouse visa offshore in the UK at the end of next month but, due to various commitments, might not be able to move directly out to Oz when (*hopefully*) it is granted - which should be around October/November by current timeframes.

 

If we make a validation trip after it is issued and then return to the UK, what is the longest we can remain back in the UK before the visa expires?

 

Sorry if this info is readily available - I am snowed under at work at the moment and haven't had time to research it yet :sad:

 

Many thanks in advance!

 

 

Edit: I've found a previous post relating to a skilled visa stating that after the visa has been validated then you have 5 years before it expires but 2 out of those 5 years must be spent in Australia. Is this the same for the 309?


309 visa granted and moved to Adelaide from Brighton UK in 2012. 100 visa and PR granted 2013. Became a citizen on Australia Day 2017.
