I would like to ask some questions concerning making port entry to Australia after visa grant.
1. Are there some sanctions or would one not be allowed to make port entry to Australia alone (eg the man) even if he has good reasons for making port entry alone?
2. Example of some reasons for one partner making port entry alone could be (a) his wife was in her last months of pregnancy and cannot travel with him.
(b) one of the partners is sick and needed to undergo medical treatment in his/her home country after making flight bookings.
(c) that wife is nursing a baby less than 1 year old and people advise that babies do not travel at that tender age.
(d) the man could afford to relocate his entire family at one time and he needs to be in Australia first to work and secure a good place before bringing his family to join him about 3 months of making port entry which at that time the family initial entry is still valid.
(e) that the man received his visa grant earlier than the his wife because his could not undergo the chest x Ray because she was pregnant and the lead to the woman's visa been delayed?
MysticRiver, I have raised all these scenarios get a clear understanding why one can't make port entry alone even though some circumstances like those listed above and others not listed could lead to one family member entering Australia alone.
Would one be denied entry to Australia because he or she is making port entry alone?
Dear @MysticRiver , I just got my 189 a couple of days back.
I had put my wife as a non migrating dependent as our marriage was not a year old and was planning to start her process soon.
Now I have come to know she has conceived by God's grace.
Is there a way I can have the child in Australia because I understand partner visa takes almost over a year.
