Birth Certificate necessary for Sponsor as well?

Hi there,

I'm preparing my application for a Partner Visa onshore, i'm French and married to an Aussie for almost two years now.

On the immigration website, it is said that to prove that your partner is an Australian citizen or an Australian permanent resident, you need to provide a birth certificate or the pages of the passport that show photo and personal details.

But in the practice I saw on different blogs that everyone has submitted their Sponsor's birth certificate AND passport. So my question is: is that necessary? Were you asked to provide it when you lodge?

As my husband can't put his hand on his birth certificate anymore, i was wondering if we needed to ask for another one, or if we could just give the passport as proof of ID.

Thanks a lot in advance for your help and have a lovely day,

Julie

As the sponsor, I only provided my passport and drivers license as ID documents.

We provided both, though not in the same evidence group. We used the passport as one portion of identification and her birth certificate as another.

Why can't he get his own birth certificate? The passport may suffice, but later on down the track they may ask for his birth certificate as well. A while back someone on these forums had a similar issue when her visa was being assessed. Her husband (sponsor) was asked to get a copy of his birth certificate even though he had provided the passport.

We provided passport and drivers license for the sponsor. Might be worth getting a new birth certificate cause you will probably need it at some point
