Subclass 309 visa Expiry Date

Does a 309 visa have an expiry date?

A subclass 309 visa is the first stage of the 309/100 partner visa applied from overseas.

It is valid until the grant of the 2nd stage, the subclass 100 visa.

Does a 309 visa have an expiry date? It appears that it does not, at least not until the subclass 100 decision is made.

The Immigration Department states its validity period as:

Temporarily, until we decide your permanent Partner (Migrant) visa (subclass 100) application or the application is withdrawn.

The wording on the relevant page is:
