Downgrading from Citzen to PR

Hi everyone, would appreciate your helpful advice.

I'm forced to give up my Australian citizenship as my other citizenship doesn't allow dual citizens.

But I still want to stay in Australia, and wonder what my options are? I've searched on the DIBP website and it seems like I should apply for a Return Resident Visa?

But the criteria is not very clear and I'm worried the fact that I gave up my Australian citizenship would weigh against me...

Anyone have any advice or experience? Thanks

I only had a quick look, but it seems that as a former Australian citizen who has renounced their Australian citizenship you can apply for a RRV. I am not sure what the actual procedure is. Maybe one of the other agents on the forum has dealt with this situation ?

What's your other country ? Surely it's not better than Australian citizenship? U worked so hard for it. U want to stay here. Why give it up? Give up your other country instead.

Unless u Get some huge benefit from the other country
