Residents Return Visa enquiry

Hi all,

I am planning to apply for citizenship in early July this year (been here for 4 years as PR).

I checked my PR visa and it expires in September 2017.

When I apply for citizenship online do I get a bridging visa. Or do I need to apply also for RRV before my visa expires?

My understanding is PR doesn't 'expire' just your travel rights do. So after September you'd have to wait for your citizenship to be processed or get a RRV if you decide to leave Australia and come back. If you stay in Australia there is no need to do anything but wait.

Yeh Shavo, stay in the country until you get your Aussie passport and save yourself $366 for a RRV
