Hi all, First post, so seems a bit cheeky to be asking for guidance! I previously held a resident return Visa subclass 155 which expired in March 2007 – The old expired passport which that Visa resided in has now been lost. My current British passport was issued by the UKPA on 30/04/03. (No copy of the old Visa) I would like to return permanently to Australia and would like to apply for a Visa to allow me to do that. I still have personal ties to Australia, my parents live there.. My Mother – Holds a RRV155 and her own business, My Father is an Australian Citizen (Previous RRV Holder) and I also jointly own 100 Acres of land in New South Wales with them. Pay taxes etc etc I hold a current ‘Gold’ Drivers license and have a valid tax file number. I have only spent around 100 days in OZ in the last 5 years. (Nothing near the requirement of 2 years) I stayed longer in the UK to look after my sick grandfather (who passed away last June) then worked on a 30 month project to migrate a call centre to India (where I worked – Working Visa in my passport) Am I able in your opinion to get a RRV? I really want to return home….. Thanks John.
Hi I've just returned from a trip to Oz which I loved. Unfortunately I am too old to qualify for a working holiday visa, but due to my profession have enough points to apply for permanent residency. I was all up for this until I read about RRV's which it states will only be granted after you have been in Oz for 2 years. At this stage, I want the opportunity to go out to Oz and travel some more and if I need to work to earn my way, then having the residency will allow me to do that. I am not 100% sure I want to live in Oz permanently, but just want to see how I get on out there. Is it true that you can only get the RRV after being there for 2 years ? What do people do who move out there and want to go on holiday in NZ for example? Does this mean they can't go out of Australia for 2 years once there? If anyone can clarify this it would be really useful!
