hmmmmmmm

Well so far it does look like its an HR country thing.... maybe they use the form 80 in order to launch a full blown investigation, which is why it can take so long to do.

Barrbcow--the passport thing you said makes a lot of sense, but, i would say it still points towards being a HR country thing. I currently live outside my home country and hold a PR here in the states, which is where i applied and was not asked for a form 80.

Lenore, you know what, I agree with you--maybe it is best to send the form 80 if you are in a HR country situation?

Rav, you're in Australia at the moment right? maybe call up immi and ask--who normally needs to provide a form 80? Could i attach it to my application just incase?

You could always whack it in anyway and put a note with it that says something like I was unsure whether or not this form would be required but I wanted to ensure speedy processing by supplying you with all potential information. After all, the form looks a bit complicated, but at least it doesnt cost you any cash to have it filled out, certified and what not.

I mean, is it bad to put send the form in upfront? don't see how it would be.... call up immi Rav! =)

Hi everyone, just thought i'd ask you guys what you think of my situation. I'm from the UK, but lived/travelled, in Egypt for just over a year in total (normally in 3 month stints). Do you think I will have to hand in the form 80? Thanks!

Hey sazzle!

Well we haven't completly figured out who is most likely to get asked for a form 80 yet. We are sort of seeing that it seems to be if you are in a High Risk country situation. Since you are from the U.K which isn't an HR country (right? im not sure.... ) and since no one from a Low Risk country has reported that they needed a form 80 yet, the logical conclusion would be that no, you wont need one.

BUT since we are not 100% sure yet, can't guarantee you anything. I don't think just having gone to egypt will make you an HR candidate....

If in doubt, call up immi =)

Hi everyone,

Okay this might help as far as this form 80 is concerned. Immigration officer called me yesterday in the morning and asked me to come to the office with form 80. I told him I was gonna do it but I got told not to. He was very surprised and a bit upset that the information is not correct regarding the form 80 and he told me it's manadatory. So this is my take on this, you gotta do form 80 if you are from a high risk country.

I also told him it's not clear on the immigration website either, so you might wanna look into it for future applicants. He acknowldged the fact the information provided is not accurate and he has been noticing this for awhile.

There you go guys if you are from a high risk country or holding a passport of one, just submit form 80 with your application it will save you a lot of time.

Once a case officer have responded to your applicaton, they will tell you to submit all of your remaining documents i.e. Form 80, Police checks from abroad, AFP Certificate, Medical and Xray tests, IELTS (if applicable) The case officer will itemize all the documents that are needed. They will give you a time limit of 28 days.

Hey guys, so on 20 November I went into the immigration office here in Perth to hand in my application, and the form 80 was at the back of my folder, and I didn't hand it to the CO straight away. After looking through my application he asked if I had it. I don't know why he asked to see it, but he did, and kept it. So I guess we still don't know the situations when they do or don't ask for it!!??

Is there any chance you could ask your CO why you needed a form 80? Like in an e-mail or something? Maybe you were right, maybe its because you spent time in egypt... but still though it is strange....

Hope you get your visa soon sazzle!!!
