    How long have you been waiting for RRV?

    Absolutely but just thought I’d share as there may be others in this predicament. Nobody likes to complain really I just felt scammed out of a couple of hundred quid. Nice result though, think I’ll not follow up on the complaint. Sharry x

    How long have you been waiting for RRV?

    So good morning everyone who has been following my thread for many months. We have just got back from Australia for a second visit on a tourist visa (1st Feb 19, 2nd Feb 20). The visa timeline for an RRV is as follows; granted initial visa way back in 1995!! back and forth for a few years then had a gap for a few years due to family illness and death of Father. Oct 2018 Applied for RRV 155 Dec 2018, Immi requests more info, submitted that week. Left awaiting outcome for months. I did email that RRV email someone mentioned but it was basic stat reply, I also called (premium number) but they couldn’t advise either, again a waste of time and money. So after this trip I felt enough was enough and I’d nothing to lose so filed a complaint via their website ‘compliments, comments & Complaints’ or something to that title. This was yesterday, I stated how I was left in limbo, paid for a service but not received the service etc etc.... this morning!!! Ta Dar....... VISA GRANT!!! in my inbox was a reply to my complaint stating they would look into it and if I wanted to add anything to get in touch then a few hours later an Immi Grant and number!! Checked my Immi account and it is there a Visa 155 valid for a year!! Complaint resolved if you ask me!!! good luck everyone xx Sharry

    Hi, my application says ‘further assessment’ it was received some months ago. It simply says when I click on the further assessment the following; ’This application is currently being assessed. The department may contact the applicant if further supporting documentation is required.’ It’s taking its time!! good luck with everyone else Sharry

    Glad you’re all sorted, you’ll have a lovely trip I’m sure. I on on the other hand are now 14 months and still waiting!! I’ve pretty much ignored it now, what a waste of time, effort and money is what I am currently feeling. Hey ho.... limbo Sharry

    No I’m afraid we are a couple of weeks shy of a whole year waiting!! I’m starting to wonder if they just hope the applications go away all by themselves!! It is a bit ridiculous when it’s only valid a year when they give it you (if they give it). Sorry you’re also in this position but good to know I’m not alone. I did send a couple of emails to the RRV one and then I also sent an attachment photo just to see if it would prompt anyone but sadly No.... i will post if I hear good or bad good luck

    Hi Clare, no no still no news, it was October 11th so that’s almost 10mth which for a 1 year RRV is slow to say the least but it’s not a no, yet. I’m thinking of trying to add another info sheet to see if that prompts someone to look and decide, worth a shot I think. Sharry

    That makes sense to how mine was then. Cant believe I submitted the application on 11th Oct 2018 and no news, even from December when I added the extra it’s still ages!!

    How long have you been waiting for RRV?

    I’m sure they have as when I went to add the info again there was then a separate section which wasn’t there on the original. Anyway I’m still wondering if anyone is in the same situation waiting for so long. Thanks

    How long have you been waiting for RRV?

    Ha ha yeah but what they wanted I’d already provided and they are all the ties I have, job offer from previous employer and family citizenship info etc.... that was in December and no one has declined it or asked for more info. To be honest the electronic form for attaching documents is not a great system as it doesn’t allow you to separate ties from compelling reasons so I think that is why they just asked again. Anyway still waiting and wanted to know if anyone else was in the same boat, it’s so frustrating when it says 12 wk.

    Hi, I applied in October 2018 too and still waiting. In December I got a request for more info but I didn’t have anything extra to offer them so repeated the same info (tbh I don’t think they read it properly as it was clearly there). Mine too says post June 2018 which wasn’t there before but that doesn’t worry me. I can’t believe it’s taking so long, I have a job offer but I’m not likely going to be in that position long as it’s teaching I’m wanting to be applying for but can’t do that without valid residency visa!! Oh what a nightmare waiting is. Have you had any news?

    Confused about holiday visa

    Thanks Paulhand, I’ve chased them till I’m blue in the face, emailed residentsreturn@homeaffairs twice but just a standard reply then I have called Canberra but the lovely guy there is just script reading, never even took my reference number. We do have definite holiday plans as my wife has been quite ill so we’ll go, we have return flights booked and leave from work so it’s obvious we’re not staying in Aus, I’m now hoping they issue the visa 6 month after we get back (bit more planning time). Thanks again for replying your posts are always helpful and stand out from the rest.

    Confused about holiday visa

    Hi, thanks good to know Paulhand, I’m a former permanent resident and applied for a RRV on 11th October 2018, still waiting as it states ‘further assessment’ hoping it will be soon however if I travel on an evisitor am I right to think it can’t cancel what I haven’t got? anyone else waiting these timeframes for RRV? I don’t meet 2yr residency requirement but meet the rest of the requirements to apply. Seems a long wait compared with my previous RRVs some years ago. Thanks
