Hey everyone, I'm in Year 10 of schooling and I'm from Singapore. My mom's currently an Australian citizen - she's been there since 06, and I'm planning on settling in Australia permanently after I graduate from university, which will be in 8 - 9 years, an extended period of time due to Singaporean military service obligations (2 years). I'm planning on applying for the Child Subclass 101 visa now, while I'm still under 18 (heard the dependency issue becomes hard after that), activate my visa in January next year, then complete my schooling in Singapore (2 years), go for military service (2 years) then possibly university in the UK, USA, not really Australia, since there isn't an uni particularly strong in what I'm planning to major in, but still keeping that in consideration due to lower costs if I were to be granted the visa. I'll be visiting Australia this end of year for a month, after my A levels for 2 months, after my military service for 6 months or so while waiting for my university course to start (probably for a working holiday of sorts). The issue, however, is that my visa will expire midway during my freshman year at university, and after I wouldn't have fulfilled residency requirements (2/5 years, if I wasn't wrong) to qualify for a new 5-year Return Resident Visa. After I complete my degree, which would be probably 3-4 years after my visa has expired, would I be able to qualify for a 3-month RRV for me to Australia and thereafter settle, or what'd happen after that? What should I even do now? THANKS FOR READING!!!
Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHello folks, I'll be a PR for 1 year come this November and lawfully in Australia for over 4 years by that time. I would like to apply for an Australian citizenship at that time. The only thing I'm concerned about is that my work involves frequent travel. So frequent in fact that I am currently scraping the 1-year-in-last-four-years residency requirement, my pending 3 week trip to Japan will take me over the top for sure. Are there allowances for travel for work in the residency requirements? The DIAC web site mentions athletes and air crew as exceptions - but I just work for a software company and my responsibilities include frequent travel. If there are such allowances, do I need to provide any documents to the effect that my travel was mainly for business? What sort of documentation would suffice? I don't own property in Australia - I rent. Cheers, -- Eric
