In a huge dilemma, hope someone can take this stress off me. My husband's PR visa expired in February, without us even realising. He booked his ticket to Australia, flying out in 2 weeks time and i quickly applied for the rrv on the weekend.
I don't think he will get the visa before he flies out and its imperative that he comes on the 6th of April.

Would it be wise to wait a few days before flying out and if rrv not processed, then apply for ETA and come?

Or should i just apply for ETA while the rrv has been "received" or do i have to withdraw the current application for rrv before i apply for ETA?

Please help

I had a client in a similar situation not long ago and RRV was granted in a week or so. Like Jeremy said, wait with the ETA until the last minute.

Thanks guys for the replies

If hypothetically rrv is not granted, and he is able to travel to Australia on an ETA (which i will apply for 2 days before his departure), will they just refuse his rrv or not grant it until he leaves in a months time.
