155 & 157 Resident Return Visa


I have an enquiry about applying for the 155 RRV Visa and need to check how I would go about applying for it and the steps I must take.

Just some details you may require. My permanent Visa expires on 2 January 2017 so I need to apply for the RRV. I don't however make the requirement of spending 2 out of the last 5 years in Australia, I have probably only spent about 6 months there as I have been at University in South Africa. I do think I may qualify for the substantial ties part of the Visa as my mom is a citizen of Australia and has been working and living there for about 5 years or so and my sister also lives and works there.

My issue is that I am currently working in South Korea and my contract for my job only ends on 28 February 2017. I was wondering if I could apply for the RRV whilst I am in South Korea or would I have to be in Australia to lodge the application?

Kind Regards

You would probably get a 1 year RRV
