3 month, 1 year or 5 year Resident Return visa (subclass 155 and 157)

At PK Harrison Australian Visa Services, we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of service, while remaining cost effective. By utilising our full application assistance, we do all the work for you, including the completion and checking of all forms, compiling of documents and liaison with the Department of Immigration, until a decision is made on your application.

Only Australian citizens have an automatic right of entry to Australia. All non-citizens need a visa that allows them to enter and remain in Australia, including former Australian permanent residents.

The Resident Return visa (subclass 155 and 157) is for current or former Australian permanent residents and former Australian citizens who want to travel overseas and return to Australia as permanent residents.

This visa allows you to keep or regain your status as an Australian permanent resident.

You might be able to be granted this visa if you are an Australian permanent resident or former Australian permanent resident whose last permanent visa was not cancelled, and you:

  • have spent a period totalling two years in the last five years in Australia as either an Australian permanent resident or citizen; or
  • have not spent two of the last five years in Australia as a permanent resident or citizen, but can satisfy the processing officer that you have substantial business, cultural, employment or personal ties of benefit to Australia, or
  • have not spent two of the last five years in Australia as a permanent resident or citizen, but are the partner or dependent family member of a person who holds a subclass 155 visa, or who has also applied for a Resident Return visa and satisfies criteria for grant.
