Hi,

My name is Jack.

I’m an American with an Australian permanent resident visa. However, I was out of the country for too long, so it became invalid (in 2015).

I am trying to move back to Australia asap. I'd like to know what my options are.

 

Thank you,

Jack

Hello Jack and welcome mate

I'd like to think a return residency visa should still be an option for you: 

https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/resident-return-visa-155-157

If not then the status resolution service is the way to go See this link for info:

Hope this helps

Mark

Hi Mark,

Thank you for the welcome

Do you think I should employ a migration agent to assist me with a return residency visa?

Hi Jack, I'd be inclined to follow the second link and seek the services of the status resolution service first. If it turns into a super complex scenario then sure, engage with the services of a professional agent, however, I'd hope it doesn't become that complex a case for you. 😊
