Hi guys, just wondering if anyone has renewed their RRV before the expiry date or if this is possible.

Thanks in advance

You should also review your 'substantial ties' to ensure that they will still be substantial a year later 🙂

It's quite common.

Lets assume you had your first grant and you did the whole of the last two years in Australia.

This qualifies you for a computer approved 5 year RRV because you've spent 2 of the the last 5 years in Aus.

You leave Australia on the day your first RRV expires.

Technically you could go 4 years and 364 days before returning and still be ok.

However if you apply just before 3 years after leaving you have still done 2 years in 5 (as the two years you were there are the first 2 years of this 5 year period)

So you get a new computer approved 5 year RRV (which overwrites the current one)

 So this way you end up being able to be away for 8 years rather than 5 years

That is really useful information. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply, much appreciated.

As long as they don’t change the rules during that time.......

I mean that is true of everything! 😉

They could change the rules tomorrow to say you won't get a RRV for any reason unless you are drinking Milo at the time of filling out the form. Nothing to stop them.

You can only work with the rules you know, you can't do anything about what might happen
