Help for RRV

Hello All,

Currently i live in USA and I have PR of Australia and I have lived in Auz for almost 5 months but now my 5 years RRV visa is expiring in August 2012. Although I know that I have not completed my 2 year stay provision to get RRV easily so I'm looking for any advice for getting 5 Year RRV. My situation is that I have to be out of Australia for 2 years but my RRV is expiring in August 2012 so if I don't get the RRV again for 5 year then I might lose my PR which I don't want. So I planned that I will go to Australia in May and get a job with Australian company then buy a house by paying some in cash and after that taking loan from Australian bank on mortgage then staying there till Dec 2012 and then I apply for my RRV so in that I case I have spent almost 5 months earlier plus 8 months + ties so may be DIAC consider my case and provide me 5 year RRV again then I can leave that job and come back to US.

Is getting a job with Australian company with having USA office would be better option so that I can maintain my work status with Australian company after being in USA? All I need is 5 year RRV as I do not want to leave PR visa as I will end up settling in Australia only. I will really appreciate any response.

Thanks,
Leah

Unfortunately this is unlikely to work, there was a recent change to the RRV which took effect a few weeks ago - I can't post links yet because of the stupid site rules, but google "what's new for resident return visas" and check out the second link. If you haven't lived in Oz for 2 years you can only get a 1 year RRV.

It looks like you could get a 1 year RRV but would need to reside here for 2 years in total before you could apply and get a 5 year RRV

Thank you so much for your response. This was such a shocker and a bad news for me. Somehow I did checked with few migration agents and they are saying that it still depends on DIAC discretion and might still get 5yr RRV. Please share if you have any more information on same.

Thanks a ton.

Thanks for the clear lookout. I have also confirmed here at Washington, DC embassy and they have confirmed the same. Now please advice on these as well so that I can make decision.

My Re-entry is getting expired in August 2012 so when should I come to Australia at max and file for 1 Year RRV?
What kind of ties I can show for 1 yr RRV?
Is my previous 6 months countable in anyway if not, can I still come by July in Australia and then establish ties and how early can I file for 1 yr RRV then?
Can I file 1 yr RRV staying in USA and if yes, what ties I can show to get the RRV?
If I decide not to file RRV this year neither inside nor outside Australia and wait till next year and finish my project in USA and decide to file RRV in 2013 or 2014 then will I lose my PR of Australia and what do I have to do to file RRV at that time?
How many times I can get 3 month RRV?

Please help me with above doubts. Thanks a ton.

Heya,

You can turn up anytime before the expiry date on your visa - even the day before. You can file for an RRV once you're here, but you're better off doing it towards the end of your stay, in order to maximise the validity period. The easiest thing to do may be to stay for 18 months and then file for a 5 year RRV. You can apply for a RRV from the USA but it may be harder to prove you have links to Australia if you're not here and have no family / housing here. How long does your project last for? I don't really know what would happen if you applied after your PR expires - I've heard of someone who successfully applied for an RRV after being outside of Oz for a number of years, but then she had lived here for 20 years +, it may be more difficult if you've been here for just 6 months. Good luck, it sounds pretty tricky!
