My son applied for an RRV. Mine was just granted recently for only 1 year. If his is granted for 1 year also, does anyone know if he can reapply if he is unable to make it back in that time frame? He was hoping for a 5 year RRV, but I doubt he will get 5 years as his PR was done at the same time as mine (he was a minor when we got it). TIA

Applied for mine on June 7th, and still waiting.
Has anyone else been getting sent a checklist from a case worker 1 step at a time? As in criminal checks, then a couple weeks later being asked for biometrics, and a couple weeks later for passport copies?

He will only get a 5 year RRV if, and only if, he meets the 2-year residence requirement.

He can reapply, but will need to go through demonstrating substantial ties again.

No, particularly as these are generally not required for an RRV application.

I wonder if it's because I was offshore when my RRV ran out? I've been living in Australia for 11 years continuously. I had to leave for a family emergency, and time was of the essence. Or otherwise I would have renewed it while I was still onshore.

If you meet the 2 year residency requirement then an RRV is usually granted immediately by the computer, wherever you are - it looks like there may be an issue with your records/file that is delaying matters.
