Thanks LIG.

If you are in Oz at the time of decision for offshore visa, u will be issued a letter from DIAC advising u to move outside of Oz to get full grant. After which I need to stamp the visa and reenter Oz within set time by DIAC.

Usually people move to NZ to get it stamped and reenter.

Cheers,
