Resident Return Visa Application
Resident Return Visas (RRV) are designed for current Australian Permanent Residents who wish to travel overseas whilst maintaining their Australian Permanent Resident status. The RRV’s also allow former Australian Permanent Residents and former Australian citizens (who have lost or renounced their Australian citizenship) an opportunity to return to Australia and regain permanent resident status. Applications can be submitted onshore or offshore, however if an Applicant applies offshore, they must be offshore when a decision is made.
There are two main subclasses of Resident Return Visas being the subclass 155 and the subclass 157. Each visa subclass is distinguished by relevant criteria, and in turn determines the length of the travel facility granted. A Resident Return Visa can provide a 5 year, one year or 3 month travel facility from the date of grant, allowing travel within that period only. Once the visa expires, a new Resident Return Visa application will need to be granted prior to travelling.
