5 year RRV expiring

Recommended Posts

We have a PR visa which was valid until 2012 - we returned to the UK in 2010 and got a 5-year RRV in Nov 12 - expiring in Nov 17. we have been back three times in last five years for one-month trips going again in April.

We still want to go back on hols and possibly for a longer stint in the next 18 months - can we apply for an RRV again? Are we still technically Permanent Residents? Any advice or recommendations for lawyer that could advise.

Also keen to do some business out there in next 18 months to pave the way to longer return, any recommendations as to who can help with business advice as well.

Thanks

You can apply but it's going to be the luck of the draw if they give you another RRV and if they do it could be for entry within 6 or 12 months only. Are you thinking of giving it another go then?

Hi Quoll yes that's what I thought. Yes only for fun though this time not for serious. Would like to have the option in retirement to be able to be in both places. Kids very settled here so once grandkids come along I think I will be firmly back in UK. Love life here - but the weather! The winters are hard. If it doesn't work out then we'll get a holiday place in Spain. Are you OK?

In order to get another 5 year RRV you will need to have lived in Australia for at least 2 years within  the last 5 years. If not, you can get a 12 month RRV but only if you can prove significant ties to Australia

It isn't quiet as straight forward as that. The department generally take a very lenient view in granting RRV's. We have member who haven't made the move and ten years after grant have obtained a 5 year RRV.

Good proof of ties to the country, plus a job offer IIRC.

RRV's are a funny one as they are often very discretionary and one case officer might be much more lenient than another. It is one of those things that unless you fully meet the criteria all you can do is apply and keep fingers crossed, but you cant rely on it. On the plus, they are relatively cheap and processed quickly
