I do have another question for you, my girlfriend and I are getting friends and family to write some letters about our relationship. Simply saying they know its real etc. Does it need to be a stat dec or just a simple letter that they sign?

Thanks again
Cool Sounds like a good plan so now all we need is the visas lol

Regarding your question - I totally agree with everything 'theskyisblue' said.

Definitely I would get your friends and family to do a stat dec, they'll have to get it witnessed by a JP or someone similar. BUT remember, whoever writes a stat dec for you will need to also give a certified copy of their passport/birth certificate etc. My gf got her parents to write statements about our relationship too (and they had it witnessed and translated in Ukraine).

It all takes extra time, but you you have to give them every reason not to reject the visa.

When it comes time to writing your statement Moscow say that it has to be a stat dec (other embassies are more lenient about this), your gf can get away with writing only a statement I think.

Hey Traxy,

That's a pretty good list you've got there. Looks like you've spent a fair bit of time preparing the application already.

In my application I showed evidence of assets I owned such as car registration papers etc.

Becase I don't rent a place or own my own home, I got a stat dec from my parents saying that my gf and I will be living with them (it is a major requirement that you will provide accomodation for your gf) :-) Just think outside the square and give them as much info as you can. Hopefully they won't have to chase you for future documents thus speeding up the whole process.

Regarding #9 - We provided copies of bday cards and valentines day cards we gave to each other. We also gave them the original envelopes with the date stamped on them.

Q - Will you pay the visa fee in Australia ?

Regarding #8 - Medicals in Russia are done at Russian Federation - Panel Doctors
(It has to be done by a panel doctor approved by Australia).

Good luck

Oh I forgot,

Also #6 - when you get your sis, mum and friend to write you a stat dec, make sure they provide certified copies of their birth certificate or aussie passport to show they are Aussies.

If you can, get your girl to get statements from her parents, family, or friends about your relationship. They don't have to be long and don't have to be stat decs. Just to state that they have met you, and know your relationship exists.

Hey there,

Another question. We have found that Form 80 (the character assesment http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/80.pdf) is very difficult to fill in. It looks like it is not for a PMV. However it looks like it is required by the moscow embassy on the document checklist (which was posted earlier in this thread).

My partner is applying for a PMV, for the very first question is asks what type of VISA but there is no option for PMV. I think we should tick the "migrant" field. Is this correct?

Other questions im having trouble with are as follows:

Question 28: This asks for details of contacts in Australia. Would my partner just list me and my family or are they asking if she knows anybody else?

Question 30: Details of intended visit to Australia, it asks for dates etc. but we are not sure when she will be coming as the VISA has not been granted. Im totally confused by this question. Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance (again)

Heya

Ummm, from memory my gf ticked the "migrant" box too. Its a bit of a dodgey form that is very general.

Q28: My gf just wrote my name and names of my parents, siblings
If your gf knows anybody else like friends etc then she should list them too.

Q30: I struggled with this question. We wrote a range of dates eg, November 2011 - March 2012 (and then wrote) "depending on when PMV is granted" or "as soon as PMV is granted". It would be good to have a time machine at this point Obviously if you are applying in August 2011 then you wont write the intended visit date as September 2011

About Form 80 I wouldn't worry too much man. Just give all the details you can, and the other details you're unsure about - just wing it.

Hope that helped a little bit.

Getting there with the application, almost complete.

I just need to write my stat dec now but I could you confirm what for I should use to write this, im thinking just a normal stat dec form?

Not this form:
http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/888.pdf
That one looks like it should only be used by a support witness.

Thanks again for you help in advance

Use this blank one:
Statutory declarations

In the top right-hand corner you can download in as a DOC or PDF. Use the word document, it's really good; you just fill in the blanks and then type your statement, once you're done you can print it out and the boxes that you see on the document don't actually print out
