Resident Return Visa

A Resident Return Visa is a permanent visa which allows a current or former Australian permanent resident, to return, if they travel overseas.  It’s required if your permanent visa has expired, and you wish to leave the country for whatever reason.  (You can avoid the need for the RRV by taking out citizenship when eligible!)   A recent change to the RRV has been to reduce the validity period from 5 years to 1 year, when a person has not lived in Australia for more than 2 of the last 5 years.
