Permanent Resident, Overextended the Travel Limit - Please Help

Hello all,

My name is Jack.

Iím a former Australian Permanent resident.

I lived in Australia for 10 years (my formative years were spent there).

In 2012, I moved back to the US (where Iím from) to be with my family.

I always intended to return to Australia, but I was unaware of the travel limitation on my permanent resident visa (I overextended the travel limit in 2015).

My understanding is that I now have to apply for a Migrant Return visa (subclasses 155 and 157). However, one migration agent I spoke to said I lack sufficiently substantial ties to Australia to attain such a visa.

Moving back to Australia is very, very important to me. I hope and pray for it every day. I hope someone here can help me.

Thank you for reading,
Jack

Hard to comment further without seeing more details... but if you grew up in Australia that is a good start. My advice is the same as when you posted on 30th Jan ... get some professional assistance to understand what you need to evidence and how to do that.
