Guys,
I have applied for Resident Return Visa on 5th December 2017.
Today its more than 2 months but the application is still in 'Received' stage.

My PR expired in August 2013 as I was unable to migrate due to compelling and compassionate reasons.

As per the website the processing time is 15 to 33 days. I am surprised to see such a long delay for my RRV application.

Anyone else facing a similar situation?

Yours may take longer than average, while they look into your compelling and compassionate reasons.

Quite some years ago, my RRV expired while I was out of Australia, and it took a while to sort out. but I had compelling and compassionate reasons that they accepted. An Australian wife, Daughter and house. But it still wasn't as fast as a normal RRV application.

The 15 to 33 days will be for normal applications without any issues to be looked at.

Difficult to compare a similar situation, without knowing your compelling and compassionate reasons.

Thanks a lot for providing insights.
It seems my case too will take some time to reach conclusion.

If you don't mind can you please let me know how long it took after your application to get the RRV.
Thanks

I can't actually recall, too long ago now, and systems have probably changed. I did actually have to have an interview though, to prove my situation.

Bottom line is that the right compelling circumstances should do it in the end.

H tej77,

Have you got a response on your 155 visa application? If so, how long did it take for the immigration dept to process your application? Thank you.
