Smile Form 80

Hi everyone,
We are about to submit our application for a de facto visa and I just wanted to double check on the Form 80. On the main checklist it says not to submit this form unless requested - but i've read several other posts on here where people have submitted it with their original application.

Could someone please advise?

Thanks!

When I spoke to the Aussie Embassy I was told that it's usually requested if there is any type of blemish on your past and that it's really up to the Case Officer. I wrote bad checks back in my day so, lucky me, that's on my history. I submitted my Form 80 anyway because the nice gentleman I spoke with told me it's a good idea to do it anyway. I doubt they'll be upset about it if you do.

I suggest doing it because it's always best to give them too much information instead of you having to take more time to do it later on when you're ready for that approval. Good luck!

Hmmmm... I checked out the 820-801 checklist, and it seems to be part of the regular checklist. It doesn't say anything about not turning it in if it isn't required. Copied and pasted it at the bottom. It would be lovely if that gigantic form wasn't required! Lol, but it seems like it is.

It's definitely a pain in the neck! I found the hardest part to be getting all the dates for all of the jobs I've worked at since graduating lol.
