I have been overseas over 10 years and already had 1 round of RRV which is also expired over 5 years. Trying to 2nd round of RRV visa. Looks like they are asking for a compelling and compassionate reason why I was away? In reality, I was working overseas but keen to return now. Does anyone has experience and suggestion on how best to handle this?
Rrv - Been Out Over 10Yrs - Compelling & Compassion Reason
Posted 19 July 2017 - 12:36 AM
Compelling: You were required to be offshore because of your job (ie field of expertise, special career development, employer demand).
Compassionate: You decided to remain offshore because of proximity to your partner or family, or were required to be close or support sick, dependant or failing family/parents etc.
10 years will be a hard case to prove. Little of what I mentioned above would extend for 10 years.
Cases I have seen successful;
- Long term senior employee, to an Australian company is sent offshore for 8 years
- Researched Doctoral for 7 years
- Aged parent, died after 8 years.
However, all these cases made a number of visits back to Australia.
