Hi everyone, Im starting to become confused about certains facts regarding the subclass 100 visa. Im hoping someone can help me please? I know the visa is valid for 5 years and it holds permanent residency. If someone leaves Australia to go back to UK during the 5 year period and doesnt return to Australia before the expiry date, does that mean the permanent residency status is lost? We are completing a form 1085 for a resident return visa 155 in the hope we will be granted a 5 year one as we want to move back to Australia for good. Some of the questions on this form are quite confusing! One question asks about being in Australia for at least a total of 2 years in the last 5 years, but we stayed for 18 months on the 100 visa, that does not include a couple of weeks we stayed in Australia to activate the visa. So we were just short of the time frame, but we do have family ties to Australia and we have just come back from a 3 week stay. We are hoping that if we are granted a 155 it will be for 5 years and not 1 year. The residency part is what we want to be clear about. Many thanks in advance, any information is greatly appreciated.
