Resident Return Visa

Resident Return Visas

A Resident Return Visa (RRV) allows permanent residents and former citizens of Australia to re-enter the country as residents. It ensures that individuals who have been granted permanent residency maintain their status and rights to live in Australia even if they have spent extended periods outside the country. It has a number of subclass options, depending on the visa holder’s situation.  Seeking the assistance of a Registered Migration Agent will ensure the correct subclass is applied for, depending on the eligibility status of the applicant.
