I would like to apply for RRV now, but I am wondering if it will be approved, any advise on how to prove my substantial ties or special circumstances?

Appreciate your help or experience.


Thanks

Yours will probably take time and have difficulties.

When mine expired some years back, i had to show substantial ties, and have an interview. It was not straightforward.

I had an Australian wife, an Australian child and a house, plus I had lived in Australia for about 10 years before the extended absence that ended with my PR travel expiring. I had to show proof of the above.

Please update your flag here .

Can I just you guys what was your status at the time you applied the RRV?
How long have you stayed in Australia out of 5 years?
Where you onshore here in Aus or offshore when you applied?
When did you lodge the RRV application?
How long did it take to get the approval if approved or how long have you been waiting now?

I want to see if the status at the time of lodgement is causing the delay or if its for every appliction. Thanks

Congratulations. Must be a big relief! I've just see this thread now and it's helpful to know. Submitted mine in Nov-18 and supplied more information in Feb-19 - I guess this could a long wait for me whatever the outcome may be....

I am sure the delays will not be on every application.

I have had a few RRV's, due to being on PR for 25 years. Most were done very fast, as I was in Australia, in a normal residential situation. With at least 75% being done in one day these days, I would have been in that group.

However, the one that I had a problem with, and it took time, was where I was outside Australia, and the RRV had expired with me having been out for 4 years.

155 and 157 RRV's do seem to have very different processing times.

​Applications that do not meet the residence requirement will take longer to finalise than the published processing times

Just curious: why do you want a RRV? If you have only visited once in the last seven years, I would think this means you have no intention to live in Australia.

I have applied for my RRV on 5 June2019 offshore and without staying 2/5 years, it is still showing as status “received”. Any one has applied in the beginning of June and had some replies ?
