Congratulations!!! thats great news. did you not meet the criteria of 2 out of the last 5 years? when was the last visit date of your PR and when did you last leave the country?
Thanks .

I left Australia 13 years ago but have been back yearly for visit.
The 1st time applied, I got 5 year visa as I met the 2 out last 5 years criteria, after that I only got a year visa each time I applied. My last visa just expired on the 14/9/2022.
My husband and sons are Australia citizens.
Have you got yours yet ? Good Luck !

It changed from received to finalised and at the same time I got an email from the immigration office.

And no I didn't do any follow up, I just waited.

Good Morning all
Just an update on my RRV. I first entered Australia in August 2011 on a 457 visa with my wife and children
so on January 2013, we applied for PR as a family we were told that only I would need PR as my wife was
born in Australia. sort story my wife's parents told her that when they left Australia they rescinded her right
to be an Australian citizen, which I never believed, So my PR was granted in August 2013.
I left Australia in March 2015 I did not complete the 2 years because my wife's father took ill and then died
4 months later, In a short time after this, my Wifes Mother took ill with Cancer and had a 2-and-a-half-year fight
and then sadly passed away. so came the day we decided we would move back to Australia.
My Eldest daughter applied for he husband's PR which had now been assigned a case officer.
A trip to London's Australian consulate to get passports sorted for my wife 2 children and granddaughter.
My RRV was applied for on July 2022 and last night I had a look at my application and still have not been granted
so I took it upon myself to Email Immigration as the company I am going to work for has requested when
I will be returning so they can give me a start date,
The next day my RRV was granted whether this was a coincidence I am not sure
but in total, my RRV visa took 4 months.

Hope this helps People

Alan

I also recommend looking at the website - BetPokiesNZ - there is a lot of interesting information about online casinos in New Zealand. I often come here after work. And here you can find good options for playing without investing.
You named quite a few good reasons :)

It took 4months and 4 days after recieving the request for more information on the date after 4months 4days ago.
I thank all the members here and wish you luck.

Hi Everyone

Got the RRV grant today..
Applied on 16th Aug. had not stayed for 2 years during the 5 year period. The 5 year period was supposed to end in Dec this year
A suggestion for everyone who is still waiting his grant. Emailing the residentreturn id, 3 months after the application does seem to help. I emailed them yesterday and i dont think its a coincidence that i got the grant today.
thanks everyone for all the help
