Need to be in UK when visa granted?

Recommended Posts

Guest dannyh1978

Hi all

 

Have applied for my spousal visa and may be travelling around the time it might be granted.

 

Do you need to be in the UK to have passport updated at the time it's granted?

 

Thanks

 

Dan

Assuming you've done an offshore application (309/100) you just need to be outside Australia when the visa is granted. If your travel includes Australia you'll need to let your CO know.

 

You don't actually have to send your passport off at all as your visa will be granted by way of a letter in an email. However, many people prefer to send off their passport to Australia House in London once their visa is granted in order to get a visa label stuck in. It can be useful when applying for jobs, drivers licence, Medicare etc in Australia to have a physical stamp in your passport to show them. But you don't need it to enter the country.


OH's front loaded application (309 visa) received at AH 13/04/2011. CO assigned 20/04/2011. Original documents returned 26/04/2011. Visa approved 11/08/2011! Arrived in Adelaide 3/11/2011

 

Second stage (permanent) visa applied 2/04/2013. Visa granted 14/05/2013.

Thanks, we've just checked in. Very exciting! Hopefully you'll be in the same position sometime soon!
