    Facing Deportation after 15 years in Australia

    The one my friends wre on, I think they got PR after 4 years of running the business, but I don't remember the visa type. Once you get PR you can do what you like with the business. I would imagine it could be stretched out to 15 years by a whole combination of different visas And its not clear whether they have had the business 15 years or just been in oz that long - combination of WHVs and other temp visas could be part of their 15 years.

    Citizenship Timeline for years 2015-2016

    UK passport holder or not, eventually your ability to get a RRV may no longer exist. The longer you stay away from oz, the harder it will get to prove the ties necessary to go back. And the rules may change. Last time the RRV rules changed it was done almost overnight. Honestly, if there is any chance you will want to return to oz, get that citizenship

    Does any employer want to sponsor me?

    As you have been told on other threads, you need the work experience.

    Buying flights home through UK company?

    Buying from a UK company isn't the issue. The problem comes with the payment, and for that you must check the small print on the ticket you want to buy. Some airlines will only accept payment from a credit card held in the name of the passenger or a person included in the group flying, and may ask to see the payment card when you check in. I don't think its as common as it used to be, but I believe some airines may still do it. If its a requirement, it will be in the small print on the websiite when you choose your ticket. My husband flew Singapore Airlines to the UK a couple of years back, I paid for the flight and I had to go with him to check i as tey wanted to see my card

    What happens to my wifes' 457?

    No-one can get a bridging visa until there is an application lodged to bridge to. And even if a spouse visa application was lodged, if the existing visa is cancelled (rather than expiring naturally) then any bridging visa would go with it I would get some professional advice fast, certainly before the 457 gets cancelled

    Facing Deportation after 15 years in Australia

    Possibly a temporary business visa, If the business failed then bye bye visa. To get PR on a business visa isn't easy, involves employing locals and making a certain amount of profit - I have some friends who managed it, they run a small shop and had to prove a lot of targets were met in order to get PR. If the business fails, and they can't get a visa on a skills basis, then they'd have to leave. Of course, if they were au pairs it might be different.....!!!!

    Returning Residents Visa (RRV)

    Didn't mean to pry, but it did look rather confusing and could have made a big difference to your application. Sometimes not asking the questions and getting the whole picture can result in people getting in a bit of a mess visa-wise.

    Resident Return Visa and Citizenship

    You will have to get a RRV. There's no other option if you want to travel.

    Returning Residents Visa (RRV)

    So how long is it since you actually lived there? Your earlier post gave the impression you lived in oz till 9 years ago, but now it sounds like you left about 20 years ago!
  14. As above, beware of termites. Many old Queensland houses (not just Brisbane) are wooden. Those aren't just exterior panels you are looking at,they are the walls of the house.

    Citizenship Timeline for years 2015-2016

    No reason why it wouldn't be. Your visa is not cancelled until your actual citizenship ceremony.

    Citizenship Timeline for years 2015-2016

    There will be no problem as long as you have a visa valid for entry.
  17. No idea, sorry, I'd suggest a quick chat wih an agent, unless one responds on here, to avoid causing complications with the student visa.

    Advise needed regarding 3 year ban

    If the ban has expired he can apply for other visas. but there is no guarantee they will be granted.

    What is the typical charge / fee of an RMA?

    Not much use to Jupiter though, theirs is very unlikely to be a straightforward 189. Paulhand and I did answer the question - he/she needs to contact some agents and outline their case to get a reliable personal quote.

    What is the typical charge / fee of an RMA?

    My experiences are too long ago and in a totally different visa field so would be of no relevance to you, sorry Exactly. And Jupiter does seem to have a rather unusual situation, involving a ban
  21. To Bridge automatically from one visa to another you need to apply onshore not offshore. You won't have one automatically and you almost certainly can't get one,
  22. For Australian Immigration purposes they will be considered valid for 12 months by the Dept of Home Affairs.
  23. I wasn't refering to uber drivers working illegally, I was refering tot he fact that Jupiter needs to find a legal pathway into Australia first - he won't manage it as a taxi/uber driver as that is not on the skills list, and he already has a 3 year ban to negotiate.
  24. How are you going to get a visa? Being an Uber Driver is not a skill on the current lists, so you need to work out how to get into Australia (legally) before you can think about driving for anyone.
