Hi mark. HaveN't lodge my visa application yet as I am still waiting for my new passport. I prefer to wait for the new one and avoid filling out a form for change in personal details.

But my curiousity is killing. Is there a way I can access a link to know which details need to be supplied in applying for visa 189?
Any help will do so that as I wait I am also able to prepare other documents whose details may be required to be entered in the skills select online visa application.

Thanks again!

Hi Kindred -

Here's the DIBP published checklist for the 189 visa:
http://www.immi.gov.au/skills/skills...-checklist.pdf

In addition to this, they often ask for more details on things like employment (such as proof of your payment for the work) and other aspects used to claim points.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Thanks Mark!

You have always been helpful!!

But when i checked the list it includes health and character requirements.
I have a PCC from the Phils but it expired a few months ago. Renewal is easy but medical? Shouldn't I wait for advice before going for a medical check? Also, I read in other forums that form 80 is required? Does visa 189
require for that too?

Lastly, is Phils considered a high- risk country? I learned that this element makes visa processing quite unbearably long.

Hi -

Expired PCC will not be accepted generally - will need to get a new one. For medicals, they will generally ask you to get the medical checks done when they are ready for you to do this - DIBP seems to be changing their preferences in this area recently. Form 80 frequently requested now with 189/190 visas - we usually have all clients complete this for these visas now and submit before being asked to.

Yes, the Philippines is considered a high risk country, sorry to say. But that does not necessarily mean that all visas for Phil. citizens will take a very long time to process.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Mark, am now accessing skill select for lodging my visa application.
But help me in one detail regarding

A. my widower father:

1. Under my EOI I declared that he may be included in future migration but he is not travelling with me;

2. In the skill select now as I supplied information, I declared him as a dependent although he is a retired military personnel and is receiving pension;

3. Towards the end of the online visa application, it is asking:
" HAS any of the applicant served in the military "?

At this point I do not know what to answer. Is it referring to me or to my father?
I saved the file as I am afraid to continue and make a mistake.
Shoudl I not have declared him as a dependent in the first place?
We live together in one house although he has pension I support him other ways.
He is 74 years old and now a widower after my mum passes away las March.

B. my overseas Mcdonalds Kuwait employment (not related to nominated occupation):

1. I declared that I have lived and worked in Kuwait from Jun 1994- Jun 1996;
2. I worked as Mcdonalds crew chief for two years there

Question is: shoudl I have to declared this even if it's been more than 10 years ago and that the occupation is not related to my nominated skill?

Please advise me what to do.

Hi Kindred -

Re: non-skill-related occupation, you may not want to mention that unless the screen you're completing requires you to enter ALL employment.

Re: dependent, this raises a number of issues. If he is a dependent of yours, then for a PR visa he will be required to take a health exam, and should he fail the health exam, the entire application will fail (ie, one fails, all fail). You may want to look at the legal definition of "dependent" per Regulation 1.05A of the Migration Regulations 1994:

1.05A (1) Subject to subregulation (2), a person (the first person) is dependent on another person if:
(a) at the time when it is necessary to establish whether the first person is dependent on the other person:
(i) the first person is, and has been for a substantial period immediately before that time, wholly or substantially reliant on the other person for financial support to meet the first person’s basic needs for food, clothing and shelter; and
(ii) the first person’s reliance on the other person is greater than any reliance by the first person on any other person, or source of support, for financial support to meet the first person’s basic needs for food, clothing and shelter; or
(b) the first person is wholly or substantially reliant on the other person for financial support because the first person is incapacitated for work due to the total or partial loss of the first person’s bodily or mental functions.


The upside is that if you claim him as a dependent, it would pave the way for him to migrate as a dependent of yours if you/he meet all the various requirements for that. However, the downside is that his health situation becomes relevant to your application. There may be other aspects to this that you should consider - especially financial, tax, logistical, etc - I'm speaking only of the migration piece of things. Another issue to consider is how expensive it is to get a parent visa these days (normal parent visa has 15 year wait; contributory parent visa has $50,000 visa application fee (not a bond or investment, a fee!). So I'd look at your long term plans for you and your dad and factor that in along with the other issues I've mentioned.

If you do include him as a dependent and migrating with you, then he's an applicant and therefore you'd answer Yes to the "ever served in the military" question and would need to include his discharge papers. But the bigger issue are the long term plans you have for him and the opportunity to get him in as a dependent vs more difficult options later (parent visa, etc).

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Oh no Matk! I have just finished lodging. My brother furnished me his credit card details and told me to lodge right away.

I included my stay in Kuwait because it asked whether I have lived in any country other than my country of residence.

I did not include my father as a migrating dependent with me but I only supplied the information based on the question relevant to him being my dependent.

Thank you so much for all the information so far.

But I do not know if I can go to sleep after knowing I shouldn't have included those details.

What are the implications?

Sleepless in Manila

Hi Kindred -

I doubt the Kuwait stay will affect anything. Re: your father, that gets to your long-term plans of whether you want him to live with you in Australia or not, whether he has any health issues that could create problems for the application, etc. I'm not saying you should or should not have included details on your father, just pointing out that there are long-term ramifications from including (or not) him in your application as a dependent.

Implications depend on your plans for him, his health, whether he actually qualifies as your dependent per migration regulations, etc - all based on info that requires a careful review of the facts and your personal circumstances/plans for the future in order to come to any conclusions. In short, I don't know nearly enough about your situation to give you any specific advice about the situation with your father - it's complex and involves future options and more than a few unknowns.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark,

Thanks. I feel better now.

I knew from the beginning that my father may not want to relocate anymore especially owing to his age ( 74 ), and his health.

When i submitted my EOI last sept I thought perhaps ( since it asked whether I plan to include a family member in my future application ) I clicked yes because I may possibly get him after I have settled in Australia.

I did not inten to include him as a migrant leaving at the same time with me.
Yeah you're right. When I viewed my application status now, it listed my father as PERSON 2.
Now, Does that mean I cannot proceed anymore with my visa application without father uploading his documents? Can't I just clarify that through email to DIBP?
That's scary! I did not really mean I will include him as an
Applicant in my application.

Can I still change that or edit? What do I do if I change it will it invalidate my visa application and be tantamoun to visa refusal?

Sorry. I know we're in different time zones.
I'm willing to wait for your response tomorrow.
Thank you and Godbless.

Hi Kindred -

Happy to respond - yes, late here - lots of urgent client cases this weekend so not too much rest for me!

Key is whether to include him as an dependent applicant (even if he comes over later) or not. If you do not include him as a dep. applicant on this application, you may have very few options of how to bring him over later (ie, expensive or long-delayed parent visa).

It's generally not a problem to remove a secondary applicant from your application - you can simply not upload docs for him and if there's no easy way on the current status the application is in to remove him, you can wait until you get a case officer and then formally request removal of the applicant - no negative affect on your application whatsoever from doing that.

But again - a big decision for you to make - - include him as a dependent (whether migrating now or later not really a difference) or not - you have this window of opportunity to do so or not, which will have a huge impact on the ability for him to come here as your parent later on, and can have a huge impact on your application if he has health issues. Decisions, decisions!

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
