Any advice on submitting a RRV application

Recommended Posts

Guest guest33237

We wondered if there are any tips or advice for submitting a RRV application - we do not have the 2 years residency, we were last in Australia in April 2007. We do not have family ties though.


We were on the way out to Australia 2 weeks ago and had to turn back, we had bad family news as we stopped over in Singapore and had to reroute back to London. The only problem was our visa ran out 4 days later. We have all the boarding passes, etc.


We are now wondering if its worth a last ditch attempt and just applying with a statement outlining what has gone on over the past 5 years and just being upfront. We did have reasons, albeit economic such as the UK property market collapsing and family reasons. Not sure if they would be deemed compelling.


We thought of sending the statement above but wondered if it was worthwhile sending any other documents. I thought about boarding passes of our recent flight, we were definitely heading to Perth. Not sure if I am clutching at straws.


Any advice appreciated.

You have to show complelling reasons why you have stayed away from Australia or have financial reasons or employment that shows you must be in Australia!


Good Luck
