Meaning of refused visa to Australia

Hi

I am applying for the Partner Immigration visa from overseas. There is a question: Has the applicant or any person included in this application ever been refused an entry permit or visa to Australia?

I applied for Skilled Immigration about 20 years ago after finishing my study in Brisbane through a lawyer. I did submit some documents to the lawyer (but cannot remember what actually have been done) and after all I was informed by the lawyer that my application was unsuccessful. As it has been so many years and I do not have any record of the reply from the Australian Immigration or the lawyer any more. In answering this question, should my answer be 'Yes' as this was regarded as 'refused a visa to Australia' or 'No'. Thanks

IMO you should always answer truthfully. So that being "YES".

Be as transparent as possible as it is hard to come back and create a reason for why you didn't disclose information at another point. Regardless it was 20yrs ago the Department probably have something on record from your past.

Thank you. I have already submitted the application. Now they require me submitting additional information, including the sponsor's application that we missed to submit last time. There is a question 'Did the visa applicant(s) you are sponsoring lodge their visa application before 18 November 2016?'

Only this made me remember that I have processed an application many years ago. In this case, the sponsor should answer 'Yes' to this question as well, right?

When you say "that we missed to submit last time" do you mean for the current application you have only just submitted now?

Only you know the answer to when you lodged your application. The one you are talking about now in this thread - was it lodged before 18 November 2016? Because in your opening thread message you said you are applying and then 40mins later your mentioned you have submitted your application.

Since it was today and not before 18 November 2016 that should give you your answer.

Sorry for the confusion. I am referring to current application. I first submitted the Partner Immigration application in Aug 2019. Now just got a reply requesting more information, so I am still applying for the visa. I said 'I missed to submit' referred to Aug 2019, so now require providing supplementary information.

For the question below, since I had applied Skill Immigration 20 years ago, should I answer 'Yes'. It asks 'lodge their visa application before 18 November 2016'. I am not sure if it refers to any application before.

'Did the visa applicant(s) you are sponsoring lodge their visa application before 18 November 2016?'

This question refers to the current visa application that your partner is sponsoring.

The answer is NO. As @paulhand also said, the question relates to your current application you submitted.

I would say check your immi account profile. You can see if your previous application was actually rejected. Usually home affairs shares the reason for rejection. If you do not have any details on the rejection then it would be best to call and check.
