It mentions arriving in Australia 2 years before your visa expires but it is not necessary. It does however make your life simpler as you would be able to easily get a return resident visa if you need to leave the country for whatever reason.

If you arrived right before the expiry date you should still be able to get one as long as you can establish some strong ties to Australia (place to live, job, etc). If you don't plan to travel out of the country at all once you arrive then you'd have time to do all this.
Cheers I was only asking as a friends daughter left after a year and they wondered if she could ever return.

Mr Bermudashorts has been fretting over this too and the overall lack of ceremony so I am glad I saw this thread. I was starting to doubt myself.

hi all

i have just had a scary thought, we have been granted 176 visa and are going on a holiday to validate our visas, we are off to Bribie island Brisbane way on 15.07.2010, i have been so excited bout it that i did nt stop to look if i needed to send our passports off for them to put a visa in. i read it as just take a copy of this e mail and thought that it would be electronic. please can someone reassure us that this is the case, or i am in trouble.

thanks a still excited Preston lancs family...

Hello Preston Lancs from another Preston Lancs family (Ashton) also heading to North Brisbane in August .... small world.

We all validated at different times (the eldest kids are 18 and 20), some had labels on entry, some didn't ... long story but all is well.

I was advised the visas are electronic, the label just helps out with registering for medicare etc when you move out. You will be fine for validation, just get then labelled before you head over for good .... which reminds me my daughter at Uni needs to send her passport off for the label

The primary applicant has to be 1st if going separately and obviously you all/both need to have validated before the date on your visa, but travelling later is fine!

Primary applicant does not necessarily need to go first, I have seen a fair few people get their visas recently without this condition. We did not have it on our visa grant.

That's cool. I'd just read it on about a thousand other threads. I didn't see it on our visa grant either, just assumed it must be in some small print. Well the important thing is that the OP can travel independently.

My husband's visa has 8502 printed on it which means that my husband cannot enter before me. This is the condition of the visa. If it doesn't say anything then it should be ok.
Another thought maybe those couples who don't have any conditions applied for 2 skilled assessments and used partner skills to up their visa points DIAC have no idea what my husband does for a living but had I used his skills to up my points then I would think we would have had no conditions. Does this make any sense at all I know what i mean

We didn't have that condition on our visa and we applied using only his skills. They had no idea what I did and we could enter in any order we wanted.

I see no reason (based on what I've seen on the board) for why some people have the condition and others don't.

I think it is a bit random, well I have not seen a pattern so far anyway. We did not have two skills assessments so it is not that.

I'd echo that, there's no pattern to it, some people have the clause in their grant letter, some don't. SImple as.

Us neither. Only one skill set used for primary app (my wife) and no condition on our visa for her to enter first.

I think I might try entering before her to see what happens.
