Default Got Pre-Grant Email...GSM VE 175....What should be my options?

Dear All

The long wait is finally gone.The day of reckoning has arrived.Here is the good news to share.

I have received an email from my CO as a pre-Grant.

Thanks to all the members and moderators for this wonderful forum.It's such an informative site that it's link must be put up on DIAC's official website

Your valuable suggestions/Comments are strongly needed.What should be my options regarding the email below?

Here is the exact email

""Dear Mr Gillgee,

I refer to your application for visa subclass 175, and advise that the
internal processing is now complete.

I have been able to apply a short extension to your medicals and police
clearance certificate, however please note that if I proceed to grant your
application, the date by which you would need to make an initial entry into
Australia would be 10 January 2011. Please note that there is no minimum
time that you must remain in Australia after you enter, you only need to
arrive on or before that date to activate your visa.

Could you please advise if you would be able to meet this timeframe. If
you cannot, you will need to obtain and provide a new police clearance
certificate. If that is done, the initial entry date would be 8 June 2011.

Please advise what you would like to do. Your response within 7 days from
the date of this email would be appreciated.

Initial entry date is quite close and it's not difficult to get a PCC in our country. So if I were you I would grab another PCC.

Thumbs up Re: Got Pre-Grant Email...GSM VE 175....What should be my options?

HI Gilgee.
Very very congrats.
My advice would be not to wait for PCC. Just get the visa
and have your initial entry by 10 January 2011.
Book your flight today and make your initial entry.
Do not waste time.
