Don't come at the end of the 5 year travel facility

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

This is a little piece of advice I would like to share about delaying your move to Australia if you have the 5 year travel facility for PR.

 

I only arrived in Aus a few months before my 5 years expired and as a result I was not eligible for the immediate issuing of a resident return visa - for that you need to live here for two years. As a result I was not with my mom when she fell ill, I was not with her when she died and I was not able to attend her funeral as the powers that be were not able/willing to expedite my RRV despite proving I was here to stay. 

 

This is something I will need to live with, maybe all you hopefully soon to be Ozzies can learn from my experience.

I'm really sorry this happened to you, and for losing your mom. I can't imagine how hard that must have been. 😔

So sorry to hear this. I think you need to have business interests outside to have that facility, but I have also made peace with that....it is what it is......
