    My partner (sponsor) is a registered nurse so is able to witness statutory declarations. We're compiling evidence for our 801 visa now and one of our supporting witnesses has asked if my partner would witness her statement for our application? Is this allowed or a conflict of interest? I'm...

    Hi there, In question 7 of the 888 form it says "Your signature" then "Declared at" then "on". https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/form-listing/forms/888.pdf What does "Declared at" mean? Does it mean the place it is declared at? like New York? Ahh I searched and I found it means the location...

    Hi Everyone, One of our friends that we got to fill out a Form 888 form for us has given us a black and white scan of his passport as evidence of his Australian Citizenship. It is certified though. I was wondering if this will cause it to be rejected or cause any issues if this gets uploaded...

    888 Stat Dec question (801 visa) Hi All, For the Stat Decs (888) you need from witnesses again for the 801 Partner Visa, can you re-use the certified copy of their birth certificate / passport that they had done last time? Someone said that these don't expire but I'm not sure if its okay to...

    Hi everyone :) We've just been requested to provide more information for our second stage 801 visa, with 28 days to provide it. Among that is a request for two 888 forms. Our question is, can we reuse the same forms from the same friends that we submitted at the beginning of our application...

    Hi everybody! I want to work as a real estate agent in Sydney. However the occupation is not on the SOL list so it's hard to get a visa. The only solution I find is if the state will nominate you for a visa which is highly unlikely. My question is if it could be possible to go around the...

    Hi all, I have a question about form 888 and applying online. How do attach it? Do you need to get a printed copy with a signature and then scan it and attach? Or is there some "online only" way? Thanks in advance!

    I'm just wondering if anyone knows if the supporting witness stat decs for a partner visa can be written by two people together. I.e a joint stat dec? For example one stat dec by my partners parents together instead of one by his mum and one by his dad. Thanks!

    I understand Statutory Declarations (Form 888) and how they relate to the Partner visa and the type of things that should be written, the family and friends that should fill one out to just prove your relationship in general. And that you should try and get a few of them as theyre helpful...
