Hi, I am applying for a Spouse Visa through Go Matilda, but my wife's RRV runs out in April and we are now concerned that she will only be able to renew it for 3 months and will have to remain in Australia after that. She lived in QLD for 27 years, has 3 children born and living in Brisbane, and 4 Grandchildren. She also owns a house in QLD, rented out and rent being paid into an Oz account. My wife held a Permanent Residents Visa from 1974 to 2003. She left Australia for personal reasons and has returned for her children's weddings, for 5 months to nurse her husband through terminal cancer (which was the time she got her RRV) and with myself for holidays, but has not spent 2 years out of the last 5 in Oz. Her reasons for this are that she met and married me, her elder sister contracted terminal cancer and her elderly mother became unwell and has now been placed in a care home. We would like to try to renew her RRV in the UK, but because she always intended to return to Oz, all the paperwork is in storage, so will take a while to obtain. Does anyone have experience of similar circumstances and if so, what was the outcome? My Visa paperwork is just about to be submitted, but I am finding it a strain trying to get everything tied up by April, including arranging medicals etc. and my son is about to give me a grandson Feb/March. Help!!! Regards, Pete.
:err: We have our skilled 136 visa :v_SPIN:for which we need to be in oz by december 24th 2008! What happens if we can only go there for say a couple of weeks, will this then hold open our visa for the remaining 5 years or will we need to apply for an RRV (residents return visa) to get back in to oz. Its just that without the sale of the house quie soon I think we may struggle to get there permanently by the first arrival date on our visa stamps. Can anyone wh know offer any advice at all please. We wouldnt be at home for long on return, Probably no more than 6 months or so. Thanks
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!
