  1. Expatriate123


    Hi appreciate if anyone can guide me. I had a PR, the travel facility was expired in Nov2020. I was able to obtain a RRV suucessfully in Nov2020. Although, my preliminary books are done for 1st week of Aug; looking at the airport / flights situation, I am afraid i might be on a rocking boat near to expiry of my existing RRV. My Q - can I reapply for a RRV now immediately to be on a safer side. Generally it takes 3m for a response. However, if I reapply for a RRV and then travel into Australia before a decision is made - will it cause a trouble for me and family upon landing. Appreciate any advise Thanks E

Apart from thag I have transferred my siginificant savinga into an Australian bank account that I opened just start of 2020 in anticipation that I will relocate by mid 2020.

    Thanks Marisa I am currently offshore, and unfortunately do not meet the 2 year requirement. I have explained in a detailed request letter on circumstances based on which I had to move out of Australia before even 2 years. Fingers crossed. Is there a way that I can contact the authorities and will it impact the decision if I do contact them by telephone or email

    Hi appreciate if anyone can provide some clarity on the rules. The travel facility on my PR expires end of Nov2020. I applied for RRV last week of August and submitted the docs to demonstrating my ties to Australia. The global processing time reflected in my ImmiAccount is 5 to 68 days which was last week and I have not heard back from authorities anything yet. Anyone hanging in similat situation What steps should I initiate to obtain a response Welcome your thoughts please E

    Thanks The issue is I never used an agent during original application. I did it myself.

    Thanks Paul for the info - I know you have been providing guidance in other posts as well. I will initiate the RRV appln right away. I do not meet the 2years criteria unfortunately - so only can prove that I have been accumulating certain savings in OZ bank account which I will be spending for our living -not sure if they will view this as beneficial for Australia I will reach out to you separately Just one more query - if I apply for RRV, whilst my current travel facility is valid and a decision on RRV is negative before my travel facility expires, I should still be able to get into Australia - right?

  12. Hi im jumping into the topic, I have my SC189 visa on which travel facility ends in Nov 2020 and therefore need to get into Aus by the due date. Planning to fly in Oct mid. However, have been following updates that now the Govt is putting restrictions on number of incoming passengers as well as we need to bear the cost of quarantine althought we can request for waiver. Will be interested to know if anyone has planned flights in next few days / weeks

    Migration travel with Coronavirus

    Hi need some guidance. My travel facility on my PR189 visa expires in Nov2020. Although I am planning to fly down to Australia after sometime late Aug2020 when the virus situation is expected to be under control. However, I just heard some news that some flights will put a hold on all flying to Australia. And also few middle eastern flights have been asked to limit the economy passenger to a very small number and so prices are now sky rocketted. Any one with travel plans soon, please share / advise, if no flights then hiw do we plan to travel to be within the due date.

    Extension of visa deadline

    Thanks ..... my PR states cannot enter australia after 28 Nov 2020. At this stage when there are indications that immigration laws will be tougher, not sure how the govt will review the RRV and how lenient they will be to accomodate such a request I am hoping the air travels gets eased and we will be able to enter before 28 nov 2020....
