Dear Brothers & Sisters,

I need your advice for my renewal of PR Visa.

My case is:
1) My PR Visa will expire on 23 OCT 2012
2) I have made a first entry within the stated date on visa and i stayed there for one day, then return to Singapore.
3) Now i have plan to go back to australia permanently on July of 2011.
4) That means i will stay there for 1 year and 3 months. (from the date of my arrival ie July 2011 to 23 Oct 2012)

My question is:
1) Can i continue stay at australia after my PR Visa period 23 OCT 2012 without apply for RRV (Resident Return Visa)?
2) Since i am not complete 2 yrs stay at australia out of 5 yrs, I am not eligible to apply RRV. Am i right?
3) To retain my PR status, Please give some suggestion from my scenario .

Thanks,

asfaruk

As long as you return to Australia before your PRvisa expiry date which you intend to do you will have no problem and you can do further departures and returns right up to that date.
Just because the visa expires does not mean you do not have residency status for that is what PR is.
It just means that between having PR and Citizenship/Australian passport, if you wish to make a further trip abroad you will need to get an RRV and you could get a further five year one or they could issue only a three month one.

Thanks Wanderer,

But at the time of 23 Oct 2012, I will have 1 year and 3 months only. At this stage can i get RRV if i applied for that? OR i have to wait another 9 months (to gather 2 years) then i apply for RRV?

Please suggest.

If you have settled in Australia, you may still be able to get a five year RRV even with only having been in the country less than the two years.
But you do not need to apply for an RRV until intending to make a trip out of Australia.
