You only need to pass through immigration. You can then get on the next flight home if you want. There is nothing else you need to do if you do not plan on staying.
You can't get most of those things on an activation trip anyway because you need to have a permanent residential address to get them.If I don't register with Medicare, Centrelink, get drivers license or open Bank Accounts in my first visit, will I be having difficulty in doing the same activities when I return for good?
Yeah even i get the jumpies sometimes thinking of the leap of faith to be made :fingerscrossed:Hi guyz.. Thank you all for your input... We got our Visa in May and our initial entry has to be before May 2014. And like most of you said, we have stable jobs here and a kid to support and all..
I mean for those of you who made the move permanently; have you visited the place before doing so? Or are you going blindly?
Our initial entry has to be before May 2014 and if we move for good, it would be blindly. However, postponing the matter who knows what could happen in a year from now and well I plan to have another kid so then that would just increase responsibilities when there..
So again, those who moved for good; did you do it blindly or had you visited the place before?? And if not, then how did you find it after having moved and started your life there.
No, they don't need to enter at the same time as you. You can enter before them. They can enter on their own. However, everyone must have entered to activate the visa before the entry date, usually one year from PCCs or medicals, whichever date is first.I had another query in mind. If I(primary applicant) go alone first and then my family joins me later in about 2 months, will there be any issue? Do I need to leave the country and once again enter with them, or my earlier entry can be used to validate their Visa.
Since we have come this far, we certainly have the skills and the required work exp to get jobs in our field there. And we all will sail through the last piece also. Its only a matter of time. I'm just thinking of ways to minimize the risk.
