Leaving the country when on Permanent Spouse Visa (100)

Hi There

Does anybody know how this works? My partner and I have talked about leaving Australia (perhaps - nothing set in stone) for a few years and live in my home country for a while.

Do you have to live in Australia for such and such time or they will revoke/void (or whatever it can be called) the Permanent 100 visa?

I would (fingers crossed) be on the Permanent Visa 100 by the time we do that. If we do it.

Once you get granted PR, your permanent residency status is good forever whilst you are in Australia and in time you can apply for citizenship.
After the PR grant, that visa is good for five years as far as return travel to Australia.
After that you need to apply for a Resident Return Visa if wanting to travel out and back after the five years and not yet holding citizenship and an Australian passport.
