I wonder if anyone knows for sure how long you have to activte a 475 regional sponsored provisional visa. We have been waiting over a week for our agent to reply to us with no joy. It seems like it could be a 12 month but not sure, also I think my husband may come out as a CATEGORY B on the medical and read somewhere that you have to activate quicker if a B.
We were expecting the visa to go through in October, but were told by DIAC/ AGENT there was as a back log we were told it would be end 2011/beginnng 2012that they would look at it.
We were devasted at the the time but had got our heads around it being this date and have things happenning in the UK that we need to be here for up until this date unfortunatley.
So if we are lucky enough to be granted a visa we somehow want to be able to delay it as long as possible without it eating into our 3 year actual visa.
Has anyone had experience in delaying the activation date? Our agent has said this may be possible but she hasnt got a good record of getting things right!!
Any info much appreciated. Thanks, Rachael:)
