Users Flag! Originally from australia. Users Flag! Expat in australia.

Thanks for the quick reply.

My application of citizenship will be form 1300t.
Here's the requirement:
have been living in Australia on a valid Australian visa for four years immediately before applying which must include the last 12 months as a permanent resident, and

not have been absent from Australia for more than one year in total, in the 4 year period, including no more than 90 days in the year before applying.

My visa history
2004 - 2013 Student Visa, didn't leave Aus more than 12 mths. (Met the first part, 4 yr requirement)
07 Mar 2013 Granted PR
10 Mar 2013 - 3 July 2013 Back in Taiwan, finish the military service.
3 July 2013 Back to Aus.

Does this means that I'm screwed, because I have been absent from Australia for more than 12 mths, and have to wait until 2016 for the citizenship....?
