If it's required as per the check list, then yes, it is in your best interest to include it.

So, YES, you need to include two stat decs from two different people that know of you and your partners relatioship, as part of your PMV application.

hi Dorcas, ive got exact same question with yours, but seems like you already submitted your application but i myself didnt get a clear answer from it.
I am going to apply for my fiance this year, and im wondering if we still need to fill up the 888 form as per my understanding its only for partner visa or de facto applicants.
did you still submitted 888 forms? thanks appreciate a lot for your reply.

I actually just asked my migration agent the same question, as the booklet isn't quite clear if this is just for Spouse/Defacto or for PMV too. If it is, it'll be challenging, as I've never been to Australia and so have not met any of his friends there.

We submitted them as it was in some documentation (can't tell you where as it was a while ago now) that this was required.
Doesn't matter of you have never been to Oz CollegeGirl. I've got a feelings they fall on the sponsors side of requirements as the people completing them need to be Australian Citizens and attest to the genuine nature of your relationship. For us that meant I'd told them about my love, shown them pictures, gone to meet him, they had spoken to him on Skype, sent emails back and forth, were friends on Facebook etc. so you can see that coming to Oz is not imperative.

The 300 checklist doesn't include the form 888s like the partner checklists.
