Extension of GSM Visa moving period  

Community - migrate to australia
New Member Registered

Hi Mark,

I am a civil enter and an Indian citizen, living, working and qualified from South Africa. I am 30 years old.

I received my GSM Skilled Visa in Feb 2014. I am to move to Australia latest by Feb 2019. However, I am still in South Africa, improving my skills, and see myself travelling and doing a Masters abroad over the next 2-3 years.

Is there any way I can extend my moving period to cater for my studying needs?

Kind regards,

Hi Sj. I assume you have 'activated' your visa by coming to Australia since being awarded your PR?

This gives you 5 years to settle however I am unaware of the option to extend this (I think it is unlikely to be honest).

To be sure I would recommend you check with the Australian migration department.

Good luck
