You're trying to do it on the exact date you become eligible, the immi account doesn't like that; try again tomorrow and it'll probably work

Thanks mate.. does the day you exit or enter count as a day in residency calculation?

My understanding is that it's based on whether or not you were in Australia at midnight at the end of that day. This should therefore mean that the day you exit you are not in Australia (since you departed before midnight) but the day you enter you are in Australia (since you arrived before midnight).

You will need to add any time spent away OVER 12 months on at the end. I can’t be bothered to calculate it all, look back 4 years from now and ensure you have spent at least three years actually in Australia (you are allowed up to 12 months out).

Also try applying again as suggested the day after you think you qualify.


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:

Did you read rammygirl's reply?  I think it should be up to you to do your own calculations.

I added in the dates into the calculator but changed the date of PR to 22 April 2017 and that came up as not eligible but to try again on the 1/6/2021. Going by what people have said before the immi site sometimes makes you wait a day or two over the actual day of eligibility. So a couple of days patience and it'll be OK
