Spouse Visa 309 - Who can fill out Form 888

Hi, I am in the process of lodging the 309/100 visa for my spouse. I am stuck on filling out the form 888 - Statutory declaration by a supporting witness.

I was wondering if a declaration from the following people is possible

1) An Australian citizen who is indefinitely residing outside Australia
2) Immediate family members who are citizens of Australia

Thanks.

1) OK - though if they are overseas, they may find it difficult to swear a stat dec before a qualified person. Depending on the circumstances, their declarations might be considered statements only, rather than valid stat decs.

2) Yes.

Hi,

You must make sure to follow the application checklist and give them all of the documents that they ask for in one go. Also if you submitting the application online, make sure you send them the original police clearences as they require the original of this. Probably best to also include police clearance/s for the sponsor as they ask for this later which tends to delay the process. All the best and if you have any other questions feel free to reach out.

You don't send in original police clearances... that was written on the checklist for paper applications where all documents were certified copies but they needed original police certificates.

Everyone must apply online now and all you need to do is uploadd all the required docs and evidences to your application in immi. Don't mail/post anything in. Clear, color scans of original documents is fine. You do not need to upload certified copies of documents.

This information can all be found on the DIBP website about partner visas and online applications.

The website has been slowly updated recently but things like the partner migration booklet has not been (that I've seen yet). Best to go off the website for the checklist.

We submitted our application through VFS and were required to provide the original police clearances. A friend who applied online was also asked to submit the original despite the copies being uploaded. However they didnít post it. They dropped it off to AHC.

Unless is specifically requested (maybe they want to check the authenticity for some reason), it does not get sent in. Upload it with the online application.

If a CO decides they want you to send in an original, that's a case specific thing. It is not a requirement for all applications.

I've had two partner visas granted and never submitted anything by paper, including police checks. This seems to be the case for most applications.
