Default visa grant date query

Hi, we are in the final stages (I think!) of the visa application, and I just have a quick query about the visa grant date if anyone could help me...

On the basis that I am successful with my application and my visa is granted, could anyone explain what is the difference between the visa grant date and the visa entry date is?

Also does the date you put on your form80 have any bearing on the grant date? As we would be going in on a 189 visa we didn't know when we would be arriving in Australia as it just depends on if and when the visa was granted. We said there was no exact date and we put down June (as we took into consideration the global processing times and such) but potentially we are ready to go now. Will the visa grant be from June therefore because that is what we said?

It doesn't really matter in the end- we are either granted a visa or not! But it would just be helpful so we can make a rough plan of action

Visa grant date is the date the visa is issued.

Must make first entry date is usually 12 months from the earliest of your police checks and medicals

To add to the previous reply, any date on your form 80 is irrelevant to either grant or first entry
