No Return Resident VISA and planning a cruise.

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm a PR in Australia and have lived for over 5 years. My 'Must not enter after" date of my PR has expired.
And I don't have a Returning Resident VISA.

I have spoken to the immigration about going to a 'round-trip' cruise from Sydney to New Caledonia and Vanuatu and back to Sydney and it is considered as a stay in Australia itself and I don't need an RRV to come back. I don't want to was $800 for an RRV (for myself and partner. Daughter is a Aus. Citizen)

HOWEVER, in case of any medical emergencies or other unforeseen situations, if I have to go to another country and come back, I need an RRV.

Is it a big risk I'm taking travelling with a toddler (Aus. Citizen) ? Or is it Manageable ?
In case of any awkward situations, will I have problems in my Citizenship Application ? I have already informed immigration about this. They have added this information to my citizenship file and they said, decision is up to me regarding RRV.

Please advise. Any related experiences?

Personally, I wouldn't risk it.
