My mom and my dad (not Australian citizens) are doing statutory declarations for me in Ireland (not the form 888) , but there is one thing I am unsure about....Should they also bring colour scans of their passport and get it certified or not?
My dad says he thinks it is unnecessary.
I am preparing everything before I apply for Partner visa 820, I do not have everything ready at the moment (such as stat decs from witnesses) but I really want to apply before June as I heard they are changing the policy again. Umm does anyone know if I apply and pay the fee and...
888 Stat Dec question (801 visa)
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...
Hello, can someone please confirm whether I will need to submit the original statutory declarations from friends for a 309/100 visa or if the uploaded scanned copies are sufficient? My friends live abroad and not sure if I need to ask them to email the originals to me or not. Thank you!
My partner and I are currently preparing to upload documentation for the second stage of his partner visa.
I'm struggling to find information about how the evidence we provide for the 801 partner visa differs to the 820 partner visa.
Do we both need to do relationship stat decs...
i had prepared stat decs for myself, my partner and asked friends and family to complete them in the standard commonwealth stat dec word document i found on the immigration website. But now i see there is a form 888 and also a specific partner stat dec.
Should my partner and i redo...
I am married to a Filipina who is living in Australia with me and we are hoping in the next couple of months we will get her 820 approved. Our kids 10 and 12 are still living overseas until then and we want to apply for their 445 as soon as our Temp visa is approved.
We know we...
hello! i noticed that last friday my status from request completed was changed to assessment in progress. all documents have been submitted. will this stage take a long time? it's kinda making me paranoid as I want to see my partner again as soon as possible.
also we only submitted statements...
Not sure if this has been asked before but can't seem to find it. I've basically heard some conflicting information from Border.gov.au calls about the living together requirement for a de facto visa for me and my same-sex partner.
Once, she phoned them and asked if it was a...
I was just curious about the recommended amount of witness statements (Form 888) my partner and I should get for our initial Prospective Marriage Visa (Subclass 300) application. It recommends 2, but will it strengthen our case of we have more?
My Vietnamese fiance is looking to submit a partner visa application, but I have a few questions about the statements. I have plenty of friends and family who are willing to fill out he official forms in Australia and get them signed and everything with their photos, however we are...
Maybe a silly question, but with stat decs should I include a place at the bottom for dates of signing, signatures of my partner/myself/Justice of the Peace?
Or do we just sign/stamp at random on the bottom of the page?
I am typing everything out on word and printing it. Will that suffice?
I'm currently applying for Partner visa 820, and I'm getting really confused with writing the stat decs. Heres what I've gathered maybe someone could let me know if its correct or not?
1st main stat dec on history of relationship to go near the beginning of the application. Should this be just...
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 have just lodged my application online and was ready to upload all my docs when I read on the checklist about the form 888's and just wanted to ask do all stat decs made for de facto partner visas have to be on the 888 form...?
Also is there any time frame regarding the uploading of...
I've tried looking for answer to this question everywhere in the forum and couldn't find it. I have a sneaking suspicion the answer is clear to everyone but me, but I'll try anyway :)
I recently got the paperwork for visa 801. I find it easy filling out everything and got heaps...
