Hi everyone
i got my 175 visa on 7th sep 09
due to the education system of my kids and other unavoidable circumstances i will make my first entry in first week of july 10.
(i must enter before 5th aug 10 to validate my visa)

first of all, will it be ok to enter by first week of july 2010, knowing that i have to make my first entry before 5th of aug 2010.

Second thing is , is it required for me to make a new police/penal clearance certificate for me and my wife which is valid on the date i enter into australia. I will be most probably staying in and around perth that is western australia.

Detailed information will be highly appreciated
thanks to all

Hi naved1970,

Yes you have to be in Australia BEFORE the date entered on your visa - it doesn't matter how long before.

Second thing is , is it required for me to make a new police/penal clearance certificate for me and my wife which is valid on the date i enter into australia.
You may need a new police/penal certificate if / when you apply for citizenship to account for any time outside the country after your visa approval and before you moved to Australia (Australian Citizenship – Good character) but I don't think you will need one when you enter the country for the first time.

Regards,
Karen

Hi naved1970,

I wouldn't bother preparing a PCC for citizenship until you need to, but that's simply my opinion. You'll need to be in the country 4 years before you can apply for citizenship and the rules may have changed by then.

Regards,
Karen

No need to get new penal clearance before the first entry..
dear rangola1,
thanks for the reply
but there is something, i am presently in Kuwait and when i move to Australia i will be leaving for good may never come back. you cannot have police clearance for the time u were staying in kuwait and u have already left the country or u r outside the country.Here even if u r on leave outside the country computers will show that u r out and police clearance cannot be issued.
keeping that in mind i was asking will better to prepare pcc before i leave Kuwait.

your comments will be appreciated
thanks in advance

It is not like that , even if u leave kuwait u can get PCC from any part of the world....

here from the DIAC document.
KUWAIT
Relevant document – ‘Criminal Status Certificate’
Apply Residents in person to Ministry of Interior
At General Department of Criminal Evidence
Kuwait
Non-residents to nearest Kuwait Embassy. A further option is to provide power of attorney to a relative or former employer’s Public Relations Officer to lodge an application on your behalf with the Kuwaiti
Ministry of Interior, General Department of
Criminal Evidence in Kuwait
Provide: Residents letter from Australian Embassy,
passport or identity card and one copy, 2 photos 4 x 6cm
Non-residents documentation required must be confirmed with local authorities



Still if u have some doubts, u can very well get the PCC now itself or while leaving the country....no harm in getting that and having with u...

Hi,

Thanks for sharing the useful information.

Police clearance certificate will given by police only after verifying your back ground details. So you need to know when the clearance request from visa office will go to police.
