  1. As a professional yourself, do you have any advice you can offer?
  2. As a professional yourself, what would your advice be?
  3. Hi, Thanks for the further responses. It seems that the best bet would be to apply with a strong application and see what the outcome is. Thanks again, any further advice would be much appreciated.
  4. Thanks for the further replies, they have been most helpful. It looks as if the best bet is to put together a strong application and see what the outcome is. Thanks again, and any more advice would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hi, Thank you for all advice given so far. Is there anybody that has acquired a RRV? Could you provide and compelling reasons and ties to Australia that enabled you to get the visa?
  6. Hi, thanks for the quick replies. My parents returned home due to my brothers being unable to settle into a new school so we returned to finish their education in the uk. We did not stay for long in Australia, it was definitely less than a year. The compelling reasons criteria is very blurry however I plan to include a lot of information and evidence clarifying education and why I wasn't able to return before the visa expires.
  7. Hi everyone, My name is Andy and I have a question that I would like anyone's thoughts. My family and I migrated to Australia and subsequently returned to the UK in 2003. I wanted to stay in Australia however I was 11 years old at the time and unable to do so. My permanent residency visa expired in 2008 before I was unable to return as I was only 16 years old at the time. I am now 20 years old and am in a position where I would be able to return to live and work in Australia on my own. I believe I may be eligible for a one year resident return visa as long as I meet the certain conditions. I have returned to Australia on a tourist visa in 2011 so this is the last year I can apply as I would have left Australia as a resident 10 years ago in July this year. I have an employment offer from the company I work for, Apple, so feel confident I could meet the substantial ties due to employment condition. I also have family who have been citizens of australiangor over 30 years however they are Aunties, Uncles and cousins so not immediate family. I also will have completed a degree in BSc Computer Science in June this year so I am sure this will benefit Australia as I will be employable in an area that is in high demand. For compelling reasons I feel that the fact that I wanted to stay in Australia and was forced to come back to the UK because of reasons out of my control would suffice. If I had been of an age and in a situation where I could have stayed then I would have done so however I was unable to. I also would have acquired a college and university education in the uk which was another reason that I did not apply earlier or return before my visa expired. I am in the process of completing the application currently and would love some advice from anybody on what would be necessary in the application and any advice anyone can give on whether you think that my reasons would be sufficient to secure a resident return visa. Another question I have is can documents be certified by univeristy lecturers or do they have to be certified by certain people in particular? Thank you in advance, I look forward to hearing from you. Andy
