Form 80

If I'm applying for a visa 820 is that classed as temporary resident?

Question 16. Do you currently have, or have you ever had, any national identity documents or numbers?
Would this mean a national insurance number for the UK?
Question 17. Your current residential address?
Would this be where I am living in Australia at the moment? Or my UK address?
Question 22. Do you have personal contacts in Australia?
So I put my partner, but do I put friends as well?
Question 28. Is your partner currently or have they ever been a citizen of any country..
My partner was born in the UK and moved with his family when he was 2. He holds a uk and australian passport and is an australian citizen. This question is straight after when they ask for his place of birth so do I put yes and put australia or put yes and put UK?
Question 35. did you travel to australia with any other persons?
My partner and I went on holiday and arrived back into Australia together so do I put his name there?
Question 41. Visa details place of issue? Mine was issued online so do i put that?
Question 42. Details of your arrival to Australia? I have arrived and departed 4 times on this visa so what date do i put there?
I am confused
very confused

Form 80 is required for high risk countries like Pakistan or China. It is optional for low risk countries, where you can get an ETA for Australia, Like the USA and as I understand it the UK.

More and more embassys are wanting this form even though it is not mandatory. In your position I would be incline to email the embassy or call the DIAC number and ask (although I have had different answers from people there). The reason being is that if they do need/want it and end up asking you for it...this could delay your process as you can see that there is a lot of things to fill in and supporting information to gather.

This is just what I would do even thought what KK said has been true in the past, it appears that there is a bit of a defacto process being established whereby other people groups are being requested to complete these forms.

My son (Australian) and his partner (Canadian) lodged their 820/801 at the Perth office on 2/11/2012. The acknowledgement was received on 5/11/2012.

On the second page of the acknowledgement it states

PERSONAL PARTICULARS FOR CHARACTER ASSESSMENT FORM
If you have not already done so, please download and complete Form 80 and return it to our office as soon as possible.

It seems to be a standard letter so has anyone else had to do this?

Whilst browsing this forum prior to lodging my application, it seems that Form 80 is a document commonly requested by DIAC, regardless of which country (high risk or low risk) you hail from. I provided Form 80 with my application just to make it more 'complete'.
