Hey, 

This is a bit of a strange ask. I've scoured the forum and can't seem to have found anyone in a similar situation to myself. 

My whole family (mum dad brother and sister) uprooted to oz back in 2009 and have remained there ever since. We all went over on a permanent resident visa. Me being a stubborn teenage who thought they knew better decided to come back to the UK (I stayed in oz less than 2 years) I have remained in the UK ever since. 

I am now wanting to finally move to oz and hopefully settle there and will need to apply for a resident return visa. My only glimmer of hope is that my strong ties to australia (immediate family) all still live and work there and are settled. My sister is now an Australian citizen and has 3 children, my mum dad and brother are permanent residents still. My mum and dad have bought a house and work full time.

I was just wondering if anyone could advise that this is sufficient enough for me to be approved for a resident return visa.

Yes, I think you have a strong case. However, if you stayed less than two years, then approval is not automatic. It's at the discretion of Immigration.   So you should be sure to provide all the necessary evidence.   If you're not feeling confident, get a migration agent to do the application for you, that will set your mind at rest.

Parents and/or siblings are not automatically seen as substantial ties as neither allow access to the family visa programme. So, there is some work to do here, and depending on circumstances your reasons for being away may also be relevant. As Marisa says, I would get some professional help to understand what needs to be demonstrated and how best to do this.
