I know for certain that I am eligible for the LRR visa but just have a few questions to help with the timing of my trip to Oz over the next couple of years and applying for the LRR Visa.
Firstly, I will be going out to Oz on a 12 month tourist visa - what happens if the Tourist Visa runs out before the LRR is granted - i.e do i get a bridging visa to remain in the country? How long does the bridging visa last?
If my Tourist Visa runs out before I actually apply for the LRR visa I know I will have to leave the country (assuming no employer sponsorship etc). What is the requalifying time to re-enter Oz on a further tourist visa.
Finally, if my Tourist Visa has run out and say, 3 months later I apply for my LRR visa, can I get a long term visa at the time to stay in Oz?
The reasons for the questions are due to the fact that my parents are applying for a CPV and I can only apply for the LRR visa once theirs is granted so need to know the implications if it is either delayed or sooner than expected.
