That's great - what RM is telling you in a roundabout way is she is ready to approve your visa and she just needs you to hop offshore so she can grant it. it's EXCELLENT news. I believe RM is the senior CO, by the way (the one who has final say on decisions).

The final decision comes from the Australian officer (the one who signs the decision) if that is RM then she makes the final decision if it isn't then she doesn't.

An interesting piece of information for you that I heard recently. A co's decision was to approve the visa then when it went to the Australian officer (senior officer) they didn't agree with the decision. This was found out when the person got their FOI file.

RM is the sole CO in DC who signs her emails Senior CO and anyone who finds out their case has been queued for final decision gets sent to her. Very little doubt she's the Aussie citizen CO there.

Another question for the experts out there... I never got any 888 s done, I just sent them out to a couple of my friends in family here and in Australia today.. (I forgot to get them done)

are these form 888's a must? or will my other evidence and 3 kids, 11 years, bank accounts... be enough?

As shared by CollegeGirl in a post, Form 888 is not mandatory for offshore applicants. You can get your family and friends to write you statements as supporting evidence. They are only a MUST (minimum 2*Form 888) for onshore applications.

"If you are not an Australian citizen or permanent resident and you reside outside Australia, your statement cannot be considered a statutory declaration under Australian law, even if it is made using this form or the template provided by the Attorney-General’s Department. However, under policy, your statement should be witnessed or certified according to the legal practices of the country in which you make the statement. Failing that, it should be witnessed by a person whose occupation or qualification is comparable to those listed above. This person should sign, date and specify their occupation at the bottom of the statement."

Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Yeah, we had 6*JP certified Form 888s and 3 notarized affidavits from India
I thought the Form 888 were mandatory for all partner visa applicants offshore and onshore, apparently they aren't for the offshore applicants.

When submitting online what do we need to do to our personal statements of our history in order to submit them? We're planning in typing them so do we print that out, sign it, then scan a copy? Or is typing enough without the signature? Or do we need to have it certified then scanned?
Thank you!
