Hi Guys,

My PR is going to expire on 28th July 2021. I had planned to permanently move-in to Australia in the first week of April 2021, however due to my mother illness i will have to delay it a bit.

I am currently considering the mid-June 2021 travel at the moment, however, due to the current travel cap imposed by Australian Government and Covid-19 situation, I am not sure whether this will become possible because
a. There used to be three airlines operating from middle east namely Emirates Airline, Qatar Airways and Etihad Airline.
b. Emirate Airline has stopped operation to Australia at the moment.
c. I met Qatar Airways and Etihad officials last week and they are currently in no position to guarantee my travel in June 2021 even if I purchase the ticket now because of this cap.

My family (wife and kids) visas are valid till August 2022.

What are my options: how can i contact Australian immigration and request for visa extension till August 2022 same as my family?

Apart, can i apply RRV now whereas my PR is still valid and i haven't spend 2 years in Australia (just a month in total and visited 2 times) and neither i have any substantial ties with Australia (I am not sure exactly how doest it work but i don't own any property in Australia at the moment).

You can’t get an extension.

You are eligible for an RRV if you have substantial ties to Australia which are of benefit to Australia. One month in the last 5 years may be a difficult sell from offshore, but seek some professional advice tailored to your specific circumstances.

Do you know anyone who can assist here?
