A Resident Return Visa enables you to travel in and out of Australia as many times as you want until the travel validity expires. If you are unsure about your eligibilty for this visa or you have any other questions, you can discuss your particular situation with a registered migration agent in a 30-minute phone consultation.
Please complete a short questionnaire and select how you would like us to contact you. You can choose a time and date after you have filled out the questionnaire.
Important note before you proceed: Please be aware that Visapath Australia is not the Australian Department of Home Affairs or any other Australian government body, but an independent private service provider offering migration assistance and visa advice. Please advised that you cannot apply for your Resident Return visa over the phone. We kindly ask for your understanding that we are not able to refund your payment in that case.
Please provide some basic personal details and choose how you would like us to contact you for the visa consultation.
Please provide some details regarding your current visa status. These details are required to assess your eligibility. We can check your current visa status with the Department of Home Affairs if you give your permission.
A Resident Return visa can be granted for a period of 5 years if you meet the residence requirement. This means that you must have been physically present in Australia for at least 2 out of the last 5 years. If you cannot meet the residence requirement, you can still be eligible for a Resident Return visa if you are able to demonstrate substantial ties of benefit to Australia. These can, for example, be personal, business, or employment ties. However, in such cases the validity period of a Rsident Return visa will only be one year.
Please answer a couple of questions so that we can assess your particular situation.
Criminal offences, charges and convictions have to be disclosed in a Resident Return visa application. This includes, for example, traffic offences that went to court, spent convictions and suspended sentences.
Not disclosing criminal charges or convictions as well as giving false, incomplete or misleading information in a visa application is a serious offence and can result in a visa refusal or even a cancellation, depending on the case. Therefore, please be open and honest when answering the following questions so that we can assess your case thoroughly and advise you accordingly.
We strongly recommend to obtain a National Police Certificate before booking a consultation so that we can assess your situation thoroughly and on based on the documentation that is required when actually lodging your visa application.
For visa application purposes the following is required: Australian Federal Police (AFP) National Police Check (Complete Disclosure) which can be applied for online. Please make sure to select '33 - Immigration/Citizenship - for supply to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’ under ‘Purpose of Check’.
If your answer relate to charges and convictions in other countries than Australia, please provide a police check from that country respectively (English translation required).
Please note that in our visa consultation we can provide you with an initial assessment and recommendation on how to proceed, but we will not be assisting you with your application for a Resident Return visa. We don't take cases of applicants who have been sentenced to 12 months or more of imprisonment since this is considered a substantial criminal record in migration legislation and we therefore highly recommend contacting a lawyer with expertise both in immigration and criminal law.
If you have any specific questions you would like to discuss in the consultation, please let us know. You can also upload documents or provide other details or comments on information you provided which you deem relevant.
