820 Visa Statements

2516 Views 9 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Skybluebrewer
Hello all,

My partner and I have just begun our 820 visa journey, and boy what a journey it is...

I had a question regarding the part online where it has you write the financial details, household details, history of the relationship, etc.

I've tried to search for the specific answer but have had no such luck so I figured i'd make an account to get a straight answer and hopefully help someone else down the line.

Is it alright to do joint statements for the Financial details, household details, social details, etc since they will be basically the same anyways? And then do a SEPARATE statement for the history of the relationship?

My thoughts were to just write "See attached document" since so far, the 2000 word limit has proven to be a bit too small. So we would just write our answers in a word document and then just attach the document.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for any help...

No, they want to read about all those things in each of your own words, hence why the narrative boxes are included in both the applicant's and the sponsor's applications. If you choose to write "see statement" in those boxes, you each still need to do one of your own covering each question.

You can always choose to add any additional joint statement but there is not much point as you should have covered what immigration wants in your individual statements.
Wow thanks so much! Luckily we have already written separate statements for everything, we just wanted to really make sure. It's definitely funny seeing the differences, her statements are so much longer and our writing style is so different.
