There is guidance on the ATO website. It isn't as straightforward as some people would like to imagine it is to determine (for example it isn't just a need to spend more days overseas than in the Country) you need to consider where you would be considered domiciled (work, accommodation, super, etc.).
Hmm, Not sure the ATO definition is what I need.
It is Border Security or Home Affairs I think. I can't find a definition anywhere, nor anyone to speak with.
I think you need to clarify as to what context you are seeking a view on this for, so people can better help you. Tax residency (probably not, given your response)? Immigration? If it is important to you to have a specific answer you can rely on - then I would suggest you determine what your requirement for the advice is (Tax, immigration, etc) and then ask a suitably qualified lawyer. We've seen from all the wannabe CEO's / Administrator's, over Virgin on this site, that whilst advice / opinion is almost certainly well intentioned, it often has very little grounding in fact or legal reality!

Not aware of a clear definition but I would assume it relates to “Permanent Residency” in a country other than Australia. I am Australian citizen and flew out of Sydney about 6 weeks ago to the US where I am Green Card Permanent Resident, even just showing the Green Card alone wasn't completely enough, they still asked a number of questions to validate I truly was resident in the US, so to me it felt like a foreign permanent residency test
