The Resident Return Visa (Subclasses 155 and 157) is a solution for permanent residents who would like to retain their status while crossing the border after first 5 years of their permanent visa’s duration. Former citizens of AU whose status was lost or renounced some day before can use this visa for resuming their status and the right of free entry to the country. The main condition for obtaining the visa is the capability to prove your presence in AU during 2 years of the last 5 or some significant relation to the country.
It often happens that ties or time spent inside Australia required for the 155 Resident Return Visa are insufficient, but, even in this case, you can be granted an entry visa 157 for 3 months which can be used for strengthening ties (landing a job or creating a family) to get qualified for the full-fledged visa 155. The extension under RRV visa 155 is valid during 5 years after which it can be renewed.
You need to start processing RRV 3 months before you plan to travel. You can apply for the RRV visa manually from abroad, but you must be also abroad when your return visa is being decided. To be more flexible and shorten the processing time, it is better to apply for the Australian Resident Return Visa online.
To get approval for your Resident Return Visa application, you need to prepare a lot of documents which can vary depending on your nationality. Ensure the documents you attach contain sufficient proofs for all facts you declare in your application. To avoid delays, you need to get your personal list of required papers and get them in impeccable order: in correct English and certified (if you use copies).
If you aren’t sure you can manage the Australian return visa online application, please contact us to get a piece of expert visa service. Our RRV Australia agent will help you to do your paperwork and lodge your Resident Return Visa application in time. Even if the period you spent down under in insufficient, you can still become eligible after our visa team strengthens your ties.
Commonly, if the RRV application is strategized by an experienced visa agent and the papers are compiled in accordance with the latest authorities’ standards, rejection of your Australian Resident Return Visa application is hardly probable. Nevertheless, if the government announces a refusal, it is important to analyse the situation and find out the reason. The government usually explains the reason of refusal and the chances for getting your RRV application reconsidered. If there is such chance for a review, the applicant can proceed with preparing the appeal. Please take into account the deadline for the appeal that will be also described in the refusal letter.
The appeal will have a strong fighting chance only if the issue described by the government was carefully addressed and fixed. The appeal must contain documents that argue this change. For boosting your chance for getting your Resident Return Visa for Australia approved, please involve visa consultants that are skilled in addressing any PR migration issue.
