    RRV Options availble to me?

    The success of an RRV application will depend on the nature of your ties and how well you demonstrate them. The only sure way to maintain your PR status is to return before your permanent visa expires. I would get some professional advice based on your specific circumstances.

    Return Resident Visa

    The 3 month RRV is a different animal all together and has different criteria. It is for applicants who do not have sufficient substantial ties to qualify for the 5 (or 1) year RRV. Perhaps it would be best to get some bespoke professional advice nearer the time, as things may have changed in the next 20 months.

    RRV 155

    If you get a 3 month RRV you would need another one to leave Australia 9 months later and still return as a permanent resident.

    - You can add it to your statutory declaration. - Yes you will.

    I agree with the posts above that suggest running these in parallel.

    Currently it’s 4 years in Australia, with the final 12 months as a permanent resident, immediately before applying. You can be away for 12 months in total and 3 months in the final year. This government has said it wants to change this to 4 years as a PR, but they haven’t got far with that (yet). So, 2012-14 doesn’t help.

    The Department of Home Affairs (like now, but with the approval being a requirement to lodge the application, rather than being done after lodging).

    Visa refusal

    I think in this case, it would be better to contact a Registered Migration Agent who can look at the specifics of your situation.
  11. I think your first answer is in their announcement: "BSMQ will continue to process applications which have been already invited for state nomination prior to this date until our quota is exhausted." Your age (and other points) are calculated at the time of invitation to apply for the visa, so you need the nomination first.

    They concern, amongst other things, requiring sponsors to be approved before a partner visa application is lodged, which may be an issue for those who apply onshore from short temporary visas. We don’t yet know when they will be implemented.

    No - because the previous partner visa has expired. That is why he needs a new visa to return. He can apply for any visa he is eligible for, and, as a former permanent resident, this includes an RRV.
