Hello there,


I am Citizen of Australia. My wife and daughter were holding Permanent resident visa from Aug 2011 to Aug 2016 (5yrs), and which has expired.
Out of 5 years my family has spent 2.5 years as a permanent resident (meets resident requirement of 155)
Even if we consider the period of 5 yrs(July2012 to June2017) just before applying now(july2017), still they have spent 2.3yrs (766 days) as permanent residents.


But their last visit to Australia was in April 2016 i.e. after visa expiry they have spent more than 3 months outside Australia (almost a year), and applying RRV from outside Australia.

Out of Sub-class 155 and 157, which visa would they get?

Due to point-"outside Australia for more than 3 months", will they get 157 visa?

Thanks in advance
Vishram

update- answer

Hello Everyone,

Just an update or answer to my question, so that people having such question will have some guidance.

I received a reply and visa recently.

It doesn't matter if you have been out of Australia for more than 3 months or a year after PR expiry, while applying from out of Australia. As long as one has lived 730 days of the last 5 years in Australia, just before applying, he would get RRV 155 mostly which happened in my case.
I say mostly because in my case we could show personal ties within Australia i.e. family head is a citizen.

Best luck guys !
Live happily.
