When I get the Visa (189) , I plan to stay a while in my country. So , does the Visa have an expiry date ? Would I be obliged to move to Australia within a certain time period ?

You are required to travel to Australia by a set date, 12 months from when you complete medical and PCC, to valudate your visa.

You may then leave and your visa is valid for 5 years. However at the end of 5 years if you have not spent any tine living in Australia your visa will expire and you will not qualify fir a return residents visa.

Why would you go through all the trouble and spend all the money if you do not intend to live in Australia?

Interesting question . I was planning to keep it as a safe haven. But I think it won't be a problem to move during 12 months then. Thx.
