Travelling before RRV decided

Hi all, my travel visa of my PR has expired in 2018 Nov and I am planning to travel to India Jan 17 2020. However I have been in Aus only for twenty months when I applied for RRV. I have emailed the dept the reason of travel which is due to My folk's health and a surgery that's needed.

I have applied for RRV on Dec 31st and it is in received stated. I have uploaded my salary slips, house address proof utility bills and employment contract letter along with medical reports. Last year I had got my one year rrv in ten days. So I left it a. Little late which was my mistake.

My worry is can I leave Australia before I get my RRV and can it be granted while I'm offshore. I'm 99% sure it will be granted due to substantial ties. But is it illegal or Can it cause gap in my residency for Citizenship if I leave before I get rrv.

Thank you sorry for the rant I'm really nervous

Yes to both, but not recommended.

Buy yourself a lottery ticket.
Had you been refused offshore you would have lost your review rights.

Haha, will do, thx mate.

That was my worry as well, even though my case was very strong for a grant, that was worrying me.

I would have been stuck with a PR but no travel visa to come into AUS and another RRV from offshore while not having the leaves to manage it. Phew.

My RRV is currently still valid for a few months but I need to travel a few days after it expires, is there any harm in applying for a new one today.
Note that I am currently onshore but will travel for a couple of weeks whilst it's being processed - not sure if that makes a difference if a decision is made whilst offshore?

If you look at the thread it says that you will lose your PR (residence )continuity for Citizenship purposes if you go out without a valid or active RRV. Also the risk of not able to return back if for any reason your RRV is rejected.

If you meet the RRV requirements it's a very quick turnaround. Friends had it granted in 3 days before they actually uploaded their passport and other detail.

That wasn't my question. For clarity, I will not be exiting without a valid RRV.

My current RRV has not expired, I am applying to renew for a further 12 months but during the application processing period will travel overseas and be back prior to the current RRV expiring. If rejected, will that invalidate the existing unexpired RRV?

No it won’t.
