    Hi PinoyAu,
    Tanong ko lang, yung "Must not Arrive after" date ba ng tourist visa is covered yung stay? like within the 3 months stay dapat before ng "Must not arrive date", yung TV kasi ng pinsan ko is set to expire feb 2019 and plano namin sya pabalikin for another 3 months by dec or Jan 2019. As long as she enters Au before that date she can stay for 3 months? Hope this makes sense. Thanks!

    @rguez06 If I understand you correctly, you're asking if dapat bang makaalis na ang pinsan mo before the "must not arrive after" date, tama ba? Kung ganun nga, the answer is no. Say Jan 2019 sya dumating, there shouldn't be any issue kung umalis sya 3 months later, basta within the visa restrictions.

    @seestra Yes, sorry medyo nahirapan akong iexplain haha, ganun kasi sa US TV Visa pero I know it doesn't mean ganun din pagAU, I just want to clear it up since I dont want her to overstay her visa and sayang pamasahe if she'd stay under 3 months. TY!

    @Hunter_08 I just did the same for my mom, bro, sis-in-law & nephew. Nag-family reunion kami dito sa Brisbane last month. Using my immi account, isa-isa ko silang finill-upan ng application, created a group to link them & pati na rin sa visa applic ng sis ko from the US, which she applied herself using her own immi acount. Lumabas ang visa grant about 2 weeks later, magkakasunod lang within an hour or so.

    Hello po!

    Ask ko lang kung meron bang naka encounter ng ganito update sa Immi account nyo?

    Sa case ko kase expired na ang visa ko for multiple entry noong Sept 13, 2018, nakapagbakasyon na din sa Brisbane noong last year November for two weeks. Tas ngayon nacurious nga lang ako at binuksan ko ang Immi account ko. Tas ito nga ang update.
  • MiaMia NZPosts: 319Member
    @rosie_sg It's a system message... if you do not have a pending application, it does not concern you. I received that message as well...
