I often wonder about this as well. In the application you do after all indicate your commitment to reside in Australia.Not sure I understand why peopl apply for residency and then don't live in the country.
To each their own, I suppose.
Not to sound rude, but you have posted the same thing in four different threads (that are mostly totally unrelatable to your question).Hey guys can someone help me please. How long does it take to withdraw a visa application? I have attached 1446 to immi account and sent it to the department aswell. I need a confirmation of visa withdrawl. Can someone tell me how long that would take? Thanks
You would think when applying to reside permanently in a country you're intention is to do just that. Personally, we don't have any plans in the near future to leave Australia. I don't want to muck up my citizenship eligibility, even though that is way, way down the track.I often wonder about this as well.

It can create all sort of issues down the track with RRVs and citizenship applications.
Fair point, it makes sense. I guess I'm just thinking of a few posts I've read along the way where people say they don't intend to live permanently here on a permanent visa.I've also heard of people applying for a visa now while they meet the criteria, even though they only plan to actually move in the next couple of years. Rather than taking a risk that the rules will change and they won't be eligible at a later date, they get the visa while they can.
Prob why there are things in place like PR has to be usually resident to sponsor someone else and the reason PR only has the initial 5 years of being able to return without an RRV. And even then, you need to apply for an RRV after that.Fair point, it makes sense.
