Hey guys,

I hope all are doing good and safe. My wife and me got our PR somewhere in early March, 2020 and then the pandemic struck. First, it was the struggle to get the PR and then the struggle to get into Australia. However, we didn't give up and managed to land in Australia despite the situation. We are now getting used to this new country and settling down. My wife has been running her YouTube channel for quite some time now and we have made some informative videos on our journey from India to Australia, quarantine experience, finding an apartment and other information as well. I am sharing some of the video links here. However, you can also search for "Artee Vlogs" on YouTube. I hope this information will be useful to you all.

Hello Dear,

I was granted a PR in Jan 20 and we're planning to move to Australia next October. I checked my visa status in my vevo and the status of my visa is ïn effect". Can I just book a ticket and submit the travel declaration and travel?

Will they consider me as a permanent resident even though I have not done my first entry yet?

I would recommend contacting your local Australian High Commission first just to be on the safe side.

Hi Riwan,

I contacted the Australian embassy by email and they confirmed me that a person becomes a permanent resident they day he is granted the visa. So, whatever applicable to permanent residents, would be applicable to me. I booked a ticket for next October, and the only requirement would be to make the travel declaration and PCR tests before travelling, and of course the two weeks quarantine. ( this is based on the regulations in effect now, who knows, things might change by then).

I hope this helps. Please share your travelling experience if you're planning to travel soon :)

Wish you all the best!

Hi Both - had same question - thank you very much friend Dostoyev for this positive feedback. I am planning to travel this August - my IED is expired already on Jan. I think we just need to show that generic letter from DIBP to the airlines .
