This was actually my OH that asked this question..."What if we get the visa and you die before we get a chance to validate it..take it we can't get to oz then?"
He's also wondering ...what if I die when we are in Oz... but I reckon he'll have to work and then apply for permanent residency after 2 years. Think once you're there it's ok.
Gosh..bit morbid but he does like to think up the stuff I don't think of :-)
