I am worried more about the homeopathy ones because they look like pills and there is no name on the bottles.
Declare it, as advised by MysticRiver.
Shouldn't be an issue as long as it doesn't contain any prohibited drugs.

But if you bring something in a very large quantity, then it will be an issue.

Apply for a Tax File Number (TFN)
Open a bank account

You need to have an address, where you'll be able to receive post. It could be even a friend's address.
I'd recommend opening a bank account, for which an address proof is not really mandatory.

Hi All,

Thanks to all of you for answering all the questions. We got our grant on 18th Oct 2019 and we did our first entry on 28th Nov 2019.
My husband stayed back in Sydney and me and our children came back. I check my Vevo status and it still says Enter before date - 19 March 2020
It does not have any record of my first entry that we already made. It also shows :Must not arrive after -18 October 2024

Do we need to move permanently before 19th march 2020? I am planning to leave India by Mid- April and hence worried a little bit. Is there an immigration authority we can call and confirm with?

Since this came with a lot of wait, do not want to take any chances.

Can experts please help? Any rules that changed recently?

VEVO is only to check the visa status and visa conditions. It won't reflect your fulfillment of the visa conditions. Permanent resident visa allows you to live and work in Australia for indefinite period of time, but that is not compulsory. you just had to do a first entry before the mentioned date, which you already did.

So just chill now and dream about the new life in Australia from your planned arrival by mid-April. :) :)

Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
