FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The Former Resident Visa is a permanent resident visa, meaning it lets visa holders live in Australia indefinitely.

Former Resident Visa holders can travel to and from Australia for up to 5 years for as long as the travel facility remains valid.

To continue travelling after the initial five years, the resident must apply for a Resident Return Visa or consider applying for Australian citizenship.

There are no limits on how many times you can apply for a Resident Return Visa.
