Hi I have just returned to the UK. Although I am not planning on returning to Oz anytime soon and with the pandemic who knows if I could anyway! I like to understand the options available... I am a prem resident and my RRV travel facility part of visa expired in August 2020 just as we landed in UK. So as far as I gather, to return to OZ ever we would need to apply for a RRV and you have to fit into certain eligibility criteria. For us we would have been living in oz for the total of 36 months in the last 5 years. I say months as this has been split. We arrived and lived for 20 months then went travelling for a while (overseas) and then returned again for 16 months. It states that you must have been in Oz for 2 years out of 5 years so I gather we would be eligible for the visa. My question is, when do you need to apply for it or how long can you leave it to apply? If I apply now I have the criteria but if I leave it for a year will it not apply any longer? Any advice would be great!
