Form 888 for Permanent Partner Visa (801)

Hi,

Just after some advice on Form 888's for the second stage partner visa application (801 - Permanent Partner Visa).

Is there a preference for both form 888's to be filled out by Australian citizens? The form says: "If the visa applicant is outside Australia and is unable to have an Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident
complete this form, any person who knows the applicant and their partner or fiancé(e) may also complete this form". We had planned to use his mum (UK citizen) and my Mum (Australian citizen), but my partner is in Australia so does this mean if we can use two Australians instead, then we should?

Also, those completing Form 888 need to provide certified copies of their passports. Do the certified copies need to be in colour, or is black and white okay?

Thanks

If possible have the same people who completed the 888 forms when you first applied do new ones.

They must be Australian Citizens or Permanent Residents .... but ask his mum to write a Statutory Declaration and include that too.

Take care.

It appears to be preferred, but not vital.

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


If you can use two Australians, it would be preferable.

Some use the same people for the 820 and 801, others use new people.

Use the same people if possible for the 888 forms.

Gosh really? We listed and have already submitted our 888s for our 100, and we have two different people from our original 309.

The two who have done the 888s this time, supplied Stat Decs for our 309 application, but as mentioned, they were not our original 888 people.

Should we give a reason as to why there is this discrepancy? Or amend our application and get the original 888 people to do 888s for our 100 application too?

Appreciate any guidance.

That is Fine

That is fine if you have done that. Don't worry.

I suggest you simply send in 2 more 888 forms from the previous one too. You can have as many 888 forms as you like.

It is no big deal.

We've already done our visas. We used different ones for the 820 801. Only did 2 for each visa.
