    Frequently asked questions

    • Where can I see my current visa status?

      As a visa holder, you can use VEVO to check your current visa details and conditions.

    • Resident Return Visas – What are my Options?

      Living in Australia for at least two years (can be accumulative) in the last 5 years prior to lodging your visa you will automatically be granted a new 5 -year Permanent Residence Visa.

      If you have spent less than 2 years in Australia, then you may be eligible for a one-year RRV. You would need to present ties you have to Australia such as employment, investment, family or business ties.
