Question What next if RRV is rejected


I along with my wife and kids hole Australian PR. This was granted in 2010 and will be expiring by the end of Aprilí15. In the last 5 years we havenít been able to live in Australia due to some personal reasons, but now we intend to return back to Australia and settle down permanently. We have a few questions.

1) We plan to enter Australia a couple of weeks before the expiry of our current PR and apply for RRV. Will we be allowed to legally live and work at Australia even after expiry of current PR (Aprilí15 end)?
2) Since we havenít stayed in Australia for 2 out of the last 5 years, there are chances that the RRV might get rejected. We would therefore like to know what options will we have? Will we be asked to leave the country or can I request my employer at Australia to process work permit (457)? Please note I already have a permanent job offer at Australia which I will be joining as soon as I reach.
3) Will my family be covered under Medicare until final outcome of RRV application is known?

Your quick response will be highly appreciated and will help in finalizing our decisions and plans.

You can stay indefinitely as long as you enter aus before your permanent visa "expires". The only thing that expires is your ability to leave and re enter the country, like if you want to go on holiday. You should be able to get an rrv without issue if you apply once here.myoull be covered by medicare.

1) Your PR doesn't expire. Only the ability to enter Australia expires 5 years after the visa is granted. If you enter before that 5 year expiry, you can remain (and live/work/study) indefinitely. If you want to be able to leave/re-enter Australia after you move, then you need to apply for a RRV. Depending on how long you've been here when you apply will determine if you get a 1-year or 5-year RRV (if you've been here 2 years you should ge tthe 5-year RRV).
2) Once you've moved here and settled, getting a RRV shouldn't be an issue. It's just a matter of whether you'd get a 1-year or 5-year RRV based on how long you've lived here when you apply.
3) You can apply for Medicare once you arrive based on the fact that you hold PR visas.
