    How long have you been waiting for RRV?

    Just as an update, we emailed the RRV email address stating we were travelling shortly (showing tickets) and basically in the space of a few hours the 1 year RRV was approved. As said, very close association with OZ and legit reasons for being overseas. Two week turn around all in all.

    Many thanks both, we will just play it by ear then. My wife is a Kiwi so there won’t be any issues going back for our visit, but when she had lived there is was a PR in the latter stages but stars didn’t align for citizenship at the time. She meets all the criteria for strong links so it will be granted at some point and we will have cause to use it. we do have the intention of moving back - a genuine one with our super and property and all other finances based there - just that my work keeps me in Asia for the time being.

    How long have you been waiting for RRV?

    Just wondering if anyone can give some guidance. We are outside Australia, based in Asia. I have OZ citizenship and so do all our kids. My wife's PR has lapsed and we applied for an RRV. Last time we did one it took about 5 working days in 2017. My wife hasn't set foot in Australia since our last trip there in 2017. We are due to travel there at the end of June for a month and applied a month in advance, which I thought would be sufficent. We supplied all the necessary info which has passed the 'substantial ties' hurdles in the past (ie kids and my Aust passports, wedding certificates, property ownership etc). Now I am reading that wait times are extremely long. Just wondering in circumstances such as ours, are the RRV granting taking very long? Or we have we left it a bit late?
