Has anyone applied for a RRV lately? 

Just wondering how the time scale is.

I don't meet the requirements but have a RRV that's about to expire, I will hopefully get back (flight booked) but it's been put back 2 times and if it happens again I'm sure if will be past my visa date.

If you meet the 2 years out of 5 residency requirement then it’s still very quick because it’s more or less automatic. If you don’t, it can be months and there’s no guarantee you’ll get one

Offshore and not meeting 2 years ... “up to 12 weeks”. Processing times do vary though. Obviously you can’t travel if you don’t have a visa.

@Som42, also be aware that if you don't meet the requirements, your application may be refused.   

The first test Immigration applies is "does this person have strong ties to Australia, of benefit to the country?"    If the answer is no, you don't get a RRV.  It doesn't matter how compelling the reasons for your absence were - if you can't pass that test, you're out of luck.
