      Without examining the details of the actual case the following is just a generalisation rather than specific to the OPs circumstances.  I do work with some of the more complex RRV's for what would be considered 'Former Permanent Residents' who have at one time held permanent residence but for one reason or another no longer do.  There are a range of criteria to be addressed in such applications - again these to some extent depend upon the actual circumstances.     In respect of the Super refund and how that impacts on your permanent residence this is not something I have needed to investigate previously. [I suspect that you may have cancelled your visa in order to obtain your super?] Note that one of the criteria to apply for a RRVs as a former permanent resident would be that your visa had not been cancelled.  'is a former Australian permanent resident, other than a former Australian permanent resident whose most recent permanent visa was cancelled.'   Byron - if you would like to contact me at our business email (below) then I would be happy to discuss this with you.

      @TeeTMI have you dealt with a situation like this before?
    • Elna57
      @janey1509. Yes, Maz is correct. There is a certain procedure and when you are told that your assurer can start the application procedure, they will supply you with all the details and a certain number to enable the assurer to proceed with the application.

      hi, the pure agents fees should be around R40k (or it was for us 3 years ago) the Visa fees  are standard so at best you can save  is the  odd 40k  if you do it yourself, but as you mention you do risk messing it up.  Note 189 Visa are hard to get at the moment for auditors and accountants (90 points) - look at 190 and regional visas (a good agent should be able to help you with all this)  we used  NewWorldImmigration at it worked well.

      Good Day It’s the complete process including all fees. I am currently shopping around for quotes. I also did the online assessment via Migrate2Oz few mins ago waiting for response. I would like to do the process ourselves and utilize the money towards shipping cost. With that in mind, I also can’t afford any delays and mistakes with the application. I need this to be done fast and efficient. I may be forced to use an agent.

      Hi Hugo,
       
      Just a question, please?
       
      We are doing the financial emmigration through FNB. My husband already has an existing account with FNB. Do we need to submit 2 seperate applications or can we just submit 1 application as a family unit? Do we both need an FNB account?
       
      Thank you very much.

      Good Day,
       
      On the issue of dependant children etc, I am applying for the SC804 Aged Parent Visa. Is it compulsory or even necessary to complete and submit Form 47A if you have no dependant children?
      My children are all married. It is only my wife and me that is applying for the visa.
       
      Thank you in advance.
