I started searching on this subject here after I put in a call to DIBP. I just received a call back, and the word is, put in the dates to the best of your ability, knowledge and recollection, then add a statement to cover any additional travel which may not be recorded, or where the passport stamps are illegible or (in a couple of cases for us) incorrectly processed

You should have obtained your movement records,
Do not rely on advice from immigration call centres.

Why would I not rely on the advice from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection?

Especially when the Canada Border Services Agency states on it's website, in relation to "movement records" as you call them:

"A Travel History Report is a record of a traveller's entries into Canada. The report documents entries made on or after August 1, 2000. This information is collected by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) on travellers entering Canada. Traveller exit information is also available in a limited capacity but applies only to foreign nationals entering the United States from Canada on or after June 30, 2013.

Highway Passage Reports may also be requested; however, they indicate only that a specific licence plate has been recorded, and do not show the people travelling in the vehicle."

So clearly, "movement records" from Canada won't be able to specify the dates a Canadian left Canada, and if by car, it's unlikely they will be identified even when returning/entering Canada.

Because they are notorious for giving wrong information. If you follow their advice and your visa gets rejected, you have no recourse, nor are they held responsible for giving you wrong information. Sad, but true.

Hi there,

I just found this thread and was looking for a similar answer.
I have traveled and worked in different countries over the last 10 years.
I am going to do the online partner visa application soon.

How would I put in the places I have been for a total of 12 months, because I lived in Australia for a year on a working holiday visa and separate from that I have visited Australia multiple times on a Holiday. same goes for Canada and The Netherlands.

Would I put chronological order like this:

--/--/2011 - --/--/2012 Australia working holiday visa
--/--/2013 - --/--/2013 Australia Holiday
--/--/2016 - --/--/2016 Australia Holiday

--/--/2013 - --/--/2014 Canada Working holiday visa
--/--/2014 - --/--/2014 Canada Holiday

?

I am not sure how to list this as I feel like living is not the same as holiday.
Also I did create a PDF file with all my international travel movements over the years but I can't upload that when I answer the questions for the application right?

Many Many thanks in advance! Sorry if I am being unclear!
