Yup...you're validated
I agree, a bit of an anti-climax for us too, in fact the desk officer looked positively peed off at our arrival!!!
I'll send you congratulations though

righty-o
we were like... ummm we have come to validate... here's our visa... she wasn't the least bit interested, carried on with what she was doing
Stamp it
Gave them back to us
Didn't say anything
My OH was like ... do we have to do anything else... are we validated
She nodded
That's it

Lol I guess it's nothing special to them as they see it everyday!!!

OK, so when you left, how long did you say you would be out of the country? Did they stamp the passport as "departed" ?

I told them the children and I would be gone for 90 days or more. The passports were stamped.

OH told them he'd be gone for "a couple of months" - they didn't stamp his passport - we've been gone for a year now! I wonder what the means for him?

I've been coming and going from Australia on a variety of visas for years and never been asked how long am I leaving for except on the card, which is just for collecting stats. My passport has always been stamped departed - that's standard too, very unuaul not to get it stamped.

We flew out at different times and he said that he didn't fill in a little card. He was asked the question. OH thought the answer is what determined whether he stamped the passport or not.

Doesn't mean anything. You don't have to tell them anything although I guess if they ask you say but it's irrelevant. Providing you come back to live before the visa expiry date you can come and go as much as you like.

Unless exiting on an Australian passport in which case it is very unusual to get it stamped!

Obviously. But as the thread is talking about a PR Visa holder, they clearly didn't have an Aus passport.

When i went, i thought they would give an Austrlian Welcome pack. All I got was a stamp, and I said is that it? They looked at me rather strangely. So i went on quickly
