Resident return visa

Hi,

So my husband and I are on the 820 visa pathway and he is currently on a bridging visa. We are looking into how things will work out in the future with his permanent residency. As he is from a country that doesn't allow citizenship from another country he unfortunately won't be applying for Australian citizenship. If he gets Australian citizenship his home country will cancel his original citizenship (Austria). Understandably, he doesn't want to give up his connection to his home country and culture and I wouldn't want him to either.

I have seen that after 5 years on a permanent resident visa, one must apply for a resident return visa every time they leave Australia to be allowed back in. The current price for this is $405. That seems crazy to me. Is this what we will face in the future every time he wants to leave the country for work or travel?

Thanks.

Hi Hanala,

Not necessarily, the resident return visa will give you a further 5 year travel period (provided he meets the residency requirements). i.e. the $405 will give you a further five years of unlimited entry as opposed to needing to pay each time you leave the country.

Cheers,

Thankyou so much for your response. That is very comforting to know as it wasn't written on the Gov website. What are the residency requirements? Is it still living in Australia for 2 total years out of 5?

Hi Hanala, yes that's correct. Under 2 years and you can start to face issues as you need to begin demonstrating ties to Australia. Would not recommend it.

The RRV validity period shown on the website varies, (3 months to 5 years) depending on your circumstances:
  • If you have lived in Australia for 2 years (730 days) in the last 5 years as a permanent resident, former citizen or former permanent resident, then you meet what is known as the residence requirement and might be given a 5 year travel validity on your visa.
  • If you have not lived in Australia for 2 years in the last 5 years as a permanent resident or former citizen or former permanent resident, then you might be given a maximum of 12 months travel validity on your visa if you can demonstrate substantial ties that benefit Australia. Check the substantial ties documents that you need to provide under Step by step, Gather your documents.
  • If you meet the requirements only because you are a member of family unit of a person who holds this visa, then you can only be given a maximum of 12 months travel validity on your visa.
  • If you don't meet the requirement, but have compelling and compassionate reasons for departure, then you might only be given 3 months travel validity on your visa

In general most people get the 5 years, by spending at least 2 years out of 5 in Australia.

It is a pity that some countries do not permit Dual Citizenship and therefore cause that problem.
