Please update your flag here .

Mail received from aust. embassy otawa. This might interest anyone applying outside australia

1) A certified document is a photocopy of an original document which has been notarised as a true copy of an original. Please note that the document must be certified by someone authorised to do so such as a Justice of the Peace, Commissioner of Oaths or Notary Public. Most lawyers/solicitors also have the ability to notarise/witness documents.

Do not supply original documents with your application unless asked to do so. If an original document is required at any stage, the department will ask for it. Please note that police checks are the exception. You must provide original police checks.

2) Documents provided as part of a visa application for permanent migration to Australia that are written in languages other than English must also be accompanied by an accurate English translation of each of those documents. When applying for your visa from outside Australia, and having documents translated outside Australia, it is recommended that you use a professionally qualified translator of your choosing.

3) It is recommended that you wait until your Partner Migration application has been assessed and you are advised by your case officer to complete the medicals. If you choose to complete your medicals prior to submitting your application, this decision will be at your discretion, as the costs of medicals are not refunded if your application is refused.

Another factor to consider is that health assessments and police clearances are only valid for 12 months, and should a visa be granted, you will be required to enter Australia before either of the clearances expires. If you have a planned entry date, you should take the timing of the clearances into account.

4) Your family and friends should make statutory declarations, affidavits or another appropriate declaration that will legally bind them to their statement. If the statements are written in a language other than English they will need to be translated.

Please note that the statement must be witnessed and notarised by someone authorised to do so such as a Justice of the Peace, Commissioner of Oaths or Notary Public. Most lawyers/solicitors may also have the ability to notarise/witness documents.

Hi again!

I had to google where to get it, because I remember that my CO had given me a wrong address. They used to do it where she told me, but for the last 2 or 3 years they had changed it to another address. This is where my aunt went to get mine...

Secretaría de Seguridad Pública Federal - Xola 324, Colonia Del Valle, monday to friday from 9:30 to 12:30, your gf will need to bring a copy of her birth certificate, her IFE id and a gas/telephone/cable tv, etc bill to prove where she lives.

As I mentioned on my previous posts, we got the letter the same day in maybe like 20 minutes? I'm not sure if that's the norm or not. I have read that some take 10 days? I have no idea why. But hopefully that's not true.

In regards to your question, I was born in Mexico City, after a few years my family moved to Baja California (up north). Met the hubby while I was studying in San Diego, California. And now we live in Warrnambool, Victoria (where the Great Ocean Road ends). I love this small regional city, just a pleasant lifestyle

Hopefully you're gf will love Queensland. Seems like all the Mexican girls that I've met on this forum that are moving to Australia go to Queensland! I'm the only one that moved to cold Victoria! LOL

Anything else, just send me a message.

I'd like to add, all the questions that have been asked are answered in Booklet 1. Read it carefully as it gives you examples of proof they are looking for and the documents they need.

I have a question for my application since my fiance is mexican. She is in the process of getting some statements from her parents citing our relationship, that i lived with her in Monterrey etc However as far as i know here, I just printed a stat dec and my parents wrote the statement signed it witnessed by a JP.

My question is would be correct that her parents write the statement and it can only be witnessed/certified at the Notaria Publica? Or can it just be a regular standard letter they can write without it being a stat dec sighted by the NP? im doing all the certifying of doc's here (minus the passport since im now back in oz).

i hope for a reply! cheers!

As far as I know, in order for your girlfriend's parents declarations to hold any weight or validity to the Immi officer, it will have to be witnessed at the Notaria Publica. Best to do it that way and avoid any run arounds later on.
