Sounds good - I noted you are in UK (?) Note that statutory declarations must be witnessed on Australian soil (including Australian Embassies, etc) in order to be valid. If that's not the case, depending on the visa you are applying for, the typical witnessing procedures in your country can also work. The key is that a legally qualified third party, whether they be a JP, notary, or whatever your country specifies, establishes your identity and certifies the document as such.

Hope this helps -

I've headed my statement with a 'front cover' page which is the stat Dec form but without the specific sections and only the declaration and room for signatures.

I've stated on there who I am, name age address and occupation and confirmed the amount of pages attached to the statement.
I've then typed the full statement on regular A4 paper with a continuation header at the top of each page and a section at the bottom for my signiture and date and witness.

Is this acceptable?

Kindest regards
