Hey guys,

I have done the form and got everything together at last for offshore partner 309 (some tiresome work) and my mum looked over it tonight, brang up if it be a issue if i made mistakes on the forms and used liquid paper to cover it up.

Anyone know if liquid paper is okay? surely not all of us can do few forms without mistakes?

I just want to send this and get this all over with and out of my head but dont want to have to do everything again if liquid paper is a no go?

Vinzo, this is the first time I've seen this question here. This is both good and bad.

It's bad because it means I don't have a definite answer to your question.

However, it's good because it means I've never seen anyone come here and say "MY VISA WAS REFUSED BECAUSE I USED WHITE-OUT ON MY FORMS."

In all seriousness, as long as when you were done it was legible, you're probably fine.

Hi

It will be good to get an answer on this but personally I would have thought the best thing to do would be, put a line through the mistake, add the correction and initial the change. This is what I have done in the past with regards to legally binding documents (not in the field of immigration I hasten to add).

Regards,

Mark

Hmmm, Mark raises a good point. Vinzo, maybe call DIAC and get a definitive answer?

I actually edited my forms on the computer... that way if I made a mistake I could just go back and fix it. I know not everyone has that kind of access, though!

These are the kind of tips which can save so much grief in the long run. It would be great to get a ruling on this from someone who is aware of the regulations.

Agreed. All legally binding documents I have ever worked with required the strike-through and initial.

Better safe than sorry, Mate. I'd recopy the forms. That's what I did anyway to ensure they were super neat and nice and exact. I did a rough draft version and then a final draft, nice and neat no mistakes version.

G'luck. I wouldn't suggest sending it in with white-out. It's just tempting fate. Plus it looks sh^t.

Hi Jmcd16

I agree, I dont think it would be sensible to give the authorities the chance to turn the document down even though it is a relatively minor issue.

I think that risking it just to avoid the hassle of having to refill the form is a no no. There's really no good reason to purposely let mistakes slip imo. In the uncertain territory of immigration I think everything matters and you should try to present the neatest possible application.

Yeah, I'm going to have to change my answer on this one, now that we've had more definitive answers from folks. lol. Good luck, OP. It's a pain, but it'll be worth doing right.
