We are in the process of getting our 176 visa, we already live in Australia but apparently will have to leave and return when the visa is granted.
Does anybody know the details involved? ie will we have to visit an embassy in New Zealand for example to have the visa stamped in our passports. Or do we simply need to leave the country for a period of time and then return which will then validate the visa????? (thinking of a trip to fiji)
Do you know how long we will need to leave Oz for?
Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated
