Question how to prove earlier visa without it?

Both my husband and I has had a visa to Australia way back.

On form 1276 (for GSM 175), no. 84, it says, that we have to give detalis of any australian type of visas we ever had and also that we would have to outline our date of arrival and departure.

The thing is, that it's been 18 years since my husband had a visa to OZ. He was 17 back then and was an exchangestudent. He cannot remember the dates of either arrival or departure (only the year and approx. season of the year) or what the visa was called and he does not have the passport from back then.

I have my passport from years back when I as a teenager lived down under with my family, but I cannot figure out the departure date from the passport.

Any one else tried this? I read on DIAs webpage somewhere, that if we cannot remember the date we should leave it out, but what if one cannot even remember the type of visa?

Perhaps my embassy (the danish department resides in Berlin) can help us out having the details.

has anyone tried something similar?

It'll likely have been a student visa for your hub and just like I said to Astrid even a nominal month/year will do [not really important]
And your parents would know what kind of visa they were on or just put it down as a secondary applicant on parents GSM visa, again nominal month/year will be close enough.

Thank you (oz) wandererthe more people you ask the more answers you get. Yeah, hubs student visa must very likely have been a student visa though my visa was a bit different, I think it was a diplomatic visa of some kind, but Ill look into in as much as I can.
By the way, I learn more and more but now I see why gathering info etc. for a visa 175 from overseas (especially if you also have to get every single doc translated takes monts and months!!! Itīs a huge project. xox

Hi Marianne,
I just wanted to confirm that is will not be important if you do not have the exact arrival dates and visa subclass information for your 175 application. The important thing is that you acknowledge that you both previously held Australian visas, and give approximate dates spent in Australia previously. If you cannot seem to remember even approximate dates, then it is true that you can leave this out.

DIAC will have a record of these anyway, so they will be able to retrieve the full details if necessary for your application. Once a case officer is assigned to your application, they may get further details from you if necessary (but I doubt in your case that they would puruse anything further - unless possibly you had overstayed these visas).

Overall, I wouldn't worry about it too much as long as you answer the question truthfully and confirm you previously held Australian visas. Hope this helps!
