Redacting Transactions on Bank Statement

Hi All,

My British partner and I are preparing to lodge our 820 Visa application at the end of April and are busily collecting our support evidence.

This forum has become our bedtime reading and has been immensely helpful in navigating the process.

We operate individual bank accounts in addition to a joint account that serves as a (very small) piggy bank and is also used to book concert tickets, travel etc.

My question is:

When submitting our individual bank statements in our application can we redact/blank out what is irrelevant, rather than highlighting what is relevant?

Your help is much appreciated

I wouldn't do that. That would look like you were trying to hide something, in my opinion.

I agree with you CollegeGirl. It would be best to write a short submission on how you do your banking than to redact any transactions. Couples in relationships have all kinds of banking arrangements. It is just one piece of evidence that you are in a relationship. Not every married couple has a joint bank account.

I look at the list of evidence suggested by DIBP today and wonder if I could get my wife a partner visa if she were to apply today. Fortunately we applied 38 years ago, and all we had to provide was a filled form, the result of the medical and a marriage certificate. Times have indeed changed.

College Girl and Jeremy,

Thank you kindly for your replies, which have snapped me back into thinking clearly!

I certainly wouldn't want to present anything that suggested non full disclosure!

A follow up question on bank statements:

We will be submitting 12 months of highlighted bank statements, I presume it is sufficient to submit the relevant pages only, rather than each page of every statement?

Thanks again

Yes, that's fine, I think. Sometimes whole bank statement pages you get will be devoted to ads for other services they offer.. I didn't include those.
