Renew of PR skilled migration visa of australia living outside australia

I got PR with general skilled migration visa to live and work in australia in 2004. I moved to australia and lived there till 2010 (6 years). I renewed my PR visa before i came to india as i have to come to india due to personel reasons. My PR visa has expired what do i have to do to renew my visa. I might and might not travel to australia as it depends on my family situation. can anyone suggests me and give their opinions on how and where to do the renew of permanent residence of australia as i am living in India. Will i get my visa renewed though i stay outside australia. Do i need to renew my visa every time at every 5 years as i can travel australia and other countries anytime i want. what is the grace period to renew my visa.

If you have spent at least 2 years out of last 5 years while applying for RRV, you will get a 5 year RRV. You can be outside Australia or inside Australia but preferred way is applying while in Australia. In your case, since your RRV has already expired, you do not have any option. Apply for RRV as soon as possible if you meet the 2 year requirement. If you fall short of 2 year requirement, you may be asked to provide additional proof of continuing association with Australia (do you own a house in Australia, do you work for an Australian company outside Australia etc) and may be granted a 1 year RRV.

If you do not qualify for the 5 year RRV (ie, have not been in Australia for a total of 24 months in the 5 years before applying), you'll need to provide substantial evidence of significant business, cultural, employment or personal ties to Australia for a one-year RRV - depending on your circumstances these can be challenging to prove, and you then have to do that after one year. Depending on the amount of time you will have been gone from Australia, there are 2 other "compelling reasons" requirements that can be activated for the one-year RRV depending on your individual circumstances.
