Hello,

I just want to know if I can apply for a 189 Visa if my previous PR visa has expired.

My wife and I applied for a skilled independent visa and were given a PR visa more than 10 years ago. Unfortunately, because of unexpected family problems, we didn't meet the requirement of living in Australia for 2 years and we left. Our PR visa expired more than 7 years ago, and I really don't think I have strong enough reasons to get a RRV.

If we wanted to move to Australia now:

  1. Can we apply for a 189 Visa again?
  2. If we apply for a 189 visa, do we need to do anything about our previous PR visa?
  3. And how will our previous PR situation affect the new application?

Thanks, and I hope to hear back from someone soon.

Yes, you can apply again, but you'll need to check if you're currently eligible. Any skills assessment you got before would have expired by now.

If we apply for a 189 visa, do we need to do anything about our previous PR visa?

You would be submitting a completely new application.

It shouldn't have any effect on the new application. Immigration will know about your previous visa, of course, but the new application will be judged on its own merits.

As you said, an RRV isn't really an option now if you don't have strong ties to Australia, you didn't meet the two-year requirement, and your visa expired seven years ago.

Hi,

I'm in a similar situation. However, I do have some connections to Australia:

  • An Australian Superannuation account;
  • A sibling living in Australia (1 out of the 3 of us).

Is that enough to qualify for an RRV?

Thanks.

Based on what you've said, no. But we've been surprised at some of the applications that have been approved in recent years. There's no harm in trying.
