Do I need a resident return visa?

Recommended Posts



So I've just booked some flights home to the UK. It's the first time I'm leaving the country since I've had my de-facto PR 801 approved (yay!) and I'm a bit confused about this resident return visa thing...


Previously (e.g. when I was on the temporary stage of the defacto 820 visa), I've left and re-entered Australia without issue. It's all electronic and I've never had an issue.


I've booked this trip home pretty spontaneously though and I'm heading away in a few weeks so I'm a bit concerned if I need to apply for the RRV.


Am I correct in thinking that the RRV is only for permanent residents who've been living away from Aus for an extended period? Or is it for all permanent residents who want to re-enter the country?


Thanks in advance for any help!
