Technically, we are still permanent residents without a RRV. It is a complicated situation.

When you have decided to move back to Australia, I suggest that you consult as many migration agents and immigration lawyers as possible before deciding on hiring one.

Even agents/lawyers can provide you with misleading information. Once you consult 3 or more, you will understand what I mean.

Pay them only to handle your RRV and not the MRT lodgement and representation. I made this huge mistake. My immigration lawyer wanted a lump sum for ALL of this when the MRT was 2 years + away and the MRT lodgement can be done yourself. It isn't cheap.

Another thing about depending on your father and family in Australia. I was told to my face at the Sydney branch that I can continue to depend on my father for financial support and the lady said she wouldn't approve my permission to work. She even suggested I go back to my country and come back just for the MRT. What's worse, she said I won't win my MRT.

Things like that can happen and I am working with a new to lodge another request to get permission to work on my bridging visa citing the successful complaint I lodged against the lady who was rude and mean to me for no reason. I received an apology from a DIAC director on the telephone for the actions of that lady but I am still waiting for my apology letter.

In short, what I have learnt about my RRV nightmare is this:

1. Try lodging an offshore RRV. You can find the legislation of the RRV requirements online but more detailed ones can be accessed via a . Prove one or all personal/work/business ties you have in Australia.

Do not leave out any possibility of each requirement. In my offshore RRV application, I didn't write in my letter that I considered Australia to be my home and where I planned to reside. That was one of the reasons for rejection. They can reject you with whatever tiny reason they can find or create one out of nothing.

2. If your offshore RRV fails, fly to Australia to the city where you plan to reside to find a to help you lodge an onshore RRV. Consult as many as you can before deciding.

3. One you have decided on a , hire him/her to lodge the RRV application with a backup plan to put you in a good position to get a Bridging Visa A with work rights in the future should it fail.

I was told by my some agents to provide proof of assets to help my RRV case but it could backfire for your Bridging Visa A's work rights because they think you have enough money to sit on your ass and do nothing.

4. Print out all the forms that your agent wants you to sign. Look at the legislation and requirements yourself online and on the form. Do not feel pressured to sign something quickly just because you are at the 's office.

My immigration lawyer submitted my Bridging Visa application with no evidence for my financial situation and my work rights was denied as a result. After it was denied, I looked at the form and realised you must submit evidence or the CO won't be able to make a decision. Because of this, I have terminated my contract with my immigration lawyer and plan to lodge a complaint to MARA after they refund me part of the money I paid to them.

I am doing this not to get back at my lawyer but to try to get evidence that I received poor legal representation from my so that you can use that in your MRT case.

5. You have to decide carefully that this is what you want and you are willing to deal with all the challenges that come with this process of returning to Australia.
I had plans of applying for a offshore RRV (India) but went against it, as the case officer in India advised that i have 95% chance of getting the RRV only if i provide them with a job offer letter. it is hard to get a job offer from offshore as most of the employers expect the applicant to be present in Aus. So i suggest you to get a job offer somehow and then apply for RRV.

Hello All,

Can anyone tell if I am not sure weather i have the ties required by DICA for renewal of RRV , and I dont want to play the waiting game with MRT. Is it possible to reapply through GSM again?
I was registered Architect of Victoria , it should be easier to regain although with pain if reapply is possible .

Thanks

Hi Rrv -

I'd be happy to email you a copy of DIAC's Policy on the substantial ties considerations for the subclass 155 RRV. It's somewhat dense reading, but well worth it as these are the specific policies that DIAC goes by in assessing the substantial ties test for the 155 visa. If I can assist with this, just email me at [email protected] and I'll email you back the Client info Sheet we have prepared with this policy info.

RRV expired

Thanks Mark,

I have looked at every single page of policy already.
I believe my chance to regain is thin , as I have no relative , no job and no asset in Australia. It would also be a 1 yr visa anyway , it doesnt suit my plan at the moment anyway, things are on going in London still.
Instead of risking a reject from DICA and 2 yrs wait on MRT with no promising .I would like to explore the chance of filing a brand new GSM without bordering those stupid ties , any agent Who can help on this? Thanks

GSM is now run through SkillSelect, and requires lodging an Expression of Interest (basically an online resume), completing a skills assessment, then awaiting an invitation to apply for a visa either as an independent applicant (subclass 189) or state/territory sponsored applicant (190). I'd have a look at the SkillSelect website:

SkillSelect

and see what looks good - your occupation and ability to pass a skills assessment will be key to deciding which visa and pathway to go for. We offer complete turnkey GSM application packages - you can PM me for more details.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Misterv

I'm new to this forum and this is my 1st post, I am also sailing the same boat. I am a former resident and had already unsuccessful RRV application before DIAC, but I'm planning again to file offshore RRV application but by query is related regarding bridging visa A which you hold at present, have you won work right ? Have you won MRT, since your post is about one year old and I believe that you might have come to know the decision , your reply may quite helpful for me. I would write about my case and seek guidance form others.

Thanks & Regards
