Citizenship Residence Requirements

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone

I know the title of this post is very obvious and can be checked on https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/tools/residence-calculator

Immi website does gives me a result YES based on my dates but the whole confusion for me is 'immediate 4 years'

Note: I am assuming lawful residence date in Aug 2014 because that's when I first arrived in AU and the website does not specify any specific visa.

But I think my scenario is a bit complicated and following are the details:


Permanent Residence Date     Lawful Residence Date      Intended Lodgement Date

17/09/2018                               10/08/2014                          07/10/2019


From Date:17 Aug 2014    To Date:30 Aug 2014    

From Date:15 Sep 2014    To Date:04 Jan 2015  

From Date:18 Jan 2015    To Date:01 Feb 2015  

From Date:22 Feb 2015    To Date:26 Apr 2015    

From Date:02 May 2015    To Date:20 Jun 2015    

From Date:04 Jul 2015    To Date:20 Aug 2016    

From Date:28 Jul 2017    To Date:01 Aug 2017  

From Date:02 Nov 2017    To Date:17 Nov 2017    

From Date:05 May 2018    To Date:20 May 2018    

From Date:16 Nov 2018    To Date:04 Dec 2018


01 Aug 2014 till 01 Dec 2015 I was on a FA Subclass 600 (Visitor Visa)

02 Dec 2015 till 11 Aug 2016 I was in Singapore with no Australian Visa

All I need to know is; Is the Residence Calculator correct? Can I apply in October this year?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You must have held a substantive visa with no breaks. If in 20-6, you held no visa, then you can not count any time prior to that. It would reset from the time you next gained a substantive visa.
