resident return visa requirements

I was just checking the requirements for a resident return visa on the immi.gov.au.eligibility.htm website.

Is it up to the individual oficial dealing with the application or are there any guidelines for the following requirement:

'you must provide evidence that proves you have substantial business, cultural, employment or personal ties to benefit australia'

I currently have a permanent resident return visa sub class 155, but it expires soon. I have not lived there 2 out of 5 years.

Thanks

Hi Tiwi -

Yes, there is specific policy that DIAC will use in assessing the evidence you provide re: substantial ties. We have a client information document we provide to our clients who are applying for a 155 visa that includes a copy of the relevant policy from DIAC's Procedures Advice Manual (PAM3) that should prove helpful - if you'll email me at [email protected] and give me your email address, I'll be happy to send you a copy. We're happy to make this available to any forum readers - just drop me an email to request it.

You should also be aware that DIAC recently changed the regulations regarding the 155 Resident Return visa so that if you apply for the visa based on being in Australia for 2 out of 5 years, if you're granted the 155 visa it will be for a 5 year duration, but if you apply based on the substantial ties criteria, the visa will only be for a 1 year duration and you'll have to reapply in another year.

Please advise if I can assist any further, and good luck with your case!

My Partner who is also a Australian permanent resident after 42 years living in Aussie has a stamp on his passport which allows him 5 years out of the country, he must return back by 2015, the problem you are both faced with is that it seems to be very difficult to return after you have left and not returned, We own a huge house and have financial security over there but still we know that if he doesn't return even for a holiday he really has little chance of being accepted back. Don't know why its seems to be so difficult for permanent residents to return.
Maybe the best thing to do is contact an agency and get help from them.
good luck
Louise

Thanks, my last resident return visa i did myself, at that time i did not meet the requirements of 2 out of 5, it was more 6 months out of 5 years, i had a brief interview at the immigration office and was granted a 5 years resident return.

This time, not being in australia, i want to apply outside australia, i can proof some things but not too much... substantial amount of money in the bank for example, remitted into australia for the purpose of buying an apartment. I'm not sure if this is enough and I'm looking for some info how to support my resident return visa application.

I know it will be a 1 year visa this time, my current visa expires in 6 months.

@ MarkNortham thank you for your reply by email.

In the end I applied online (immi.gov.au website) and was granted a 5 year rrv (class BB, subclass 155) but must enter within a year. One thing I am not sure about, it is a 5 year resident return visa, so when I arrive within a year, even if it is for a day, I can leave and enter Australia after that for the remaining term of the visa?

Yes, you just have to get the immigration stamp. I came over for 1 hour and went back from the airport itself and my visa was validated without any problem.

Hello tiwi,

I had similar situation as yours. I did not meet the requirement of 2 out of 5. And my current 5 years return visa will be expired in Dec 2014. I want to apply for another 5 year rrv online, could you please tell me what kind of information you provided to the immigration as the evidence of ties to Australia and benefit to Australia in your last application? Thanks so much!

Andrew

Hi there,
Can you please provide me further details on one year Resident Return Visa?? You said you came over just for one hour to validate your visa but what comes next?? How long that visa allows you to stay out of Australia? How long before you need another RRV? Desperately waiting for the reply..

Once you validate our PR visa, your visa is valid for 5 years from the date it was granted. Once those five years are up, if you are already in Australia, you can stay permanently - that's what makes PR permanent. However, if you then want to travel outside Australia, you will need to have been in Australia for at least 2 years of the previous 5 before you will qualify for a 5-year RRV. So if you came back just before your original 5 year period expired, you would have to stay in Australia for 2 years before you'd be eligible for a five-year RRV. It is sometimes possible to get shorter-term RRVs if you have not been in Australia for quite 2 years yet, but it can be more difficult, is not guaranteed, and can require proving significant ties to Australia.
