In my case, this alias name is only used within the company for convenience purpose, not used in any IDs of mine and unknown to any person outside the company. I thought the alias as the nickname similar like the email address name or forum name... Therefore I am surprised the DIBP is asking for police clearance for this alias name. If I leave current company in the future, i have no evidence this alias name is me.
Yes, they are/ were all legal names and I have documents to proof it. On a German passport you can have an alias name added. So in this case you will have proof too. I think in your case, they may ask for it because Asian people tend to choose an English name. How about you write a short explanation about your alias name and then upload it?

My legal names are a bit complicated too. I have no proof that my first legal name was changed. I only have a document stating my second legal name but my first one does not appear on it. So I wrote a statement explaining why this is and stated there was a German law that was used back in 1980's to legally change the spelling of my first names. Immigration didn't ask me any further questions and approved PMV and then 820 partner visa.

It seems I wont be as lucky as you. We have been informed yesterday that the document is ready and will be send out. Estimated arrival time is 10-20 working days. I first thought I didn't read correctly.

In this case there is no way to receive it in time so I will send the reply next week that it is delayed and attach the confirmation letters.

What will happen in that case? Will they extend the 28 days or what?
