Exclamation overstayed my visa in u.s.a and Australian Fiancee Visa.

hii,
i have 1 strange question (

10 years ago i overstayed my student visa while i am in America and now i am applying for fiancee visa Australia..

in the application forms is there any question that i missed about the past immigration violations ?? because my english is not so well and i need to double check everything in this forum.

in the chracter assesment form they mainly focusing on criminal convictions,which i dont have any (thanks god) i hope that i understood everything correct.


i received my police clearance from FBİ and it says ''no arrest record''
and strange thing they sent me my fingerprint form back by mail..
i am not sure they always do it like that, because its really dangerous to send back this kind of stuff regular mail..

Hi realist,

I had a quick read of the application form and couldn't find any questions related to visa violations in another country. The only concern I think would be if you overstayed an Australian visa. I also looked on the form 80 Character check, which they may ask you to complete, but again, I saw nothing specifically about overseas visa violations.

Generally, I think it wouldn't matter anyway, since parking fines and such small violations are not a big issue for immigration. Also, most visa violations give you a ban for a certain period like 5 years, so I guess if you had a travel ban to the US it would be over now, right? So after 10 years your record should be clean again.

If in doubt, give immigration or the Aust. embassy where you are a call. You don't have to tell them your name or say it's about you, but they can give you a more definite answer.

I haven't read a partner application form too thoroughly of late but all the sections and questions are clearly laid out and it would be hard to miss them if you go through carefully.

Make sure you use the Checklist too and thoroughly read Booklet #1

Whether or not there are specific questions, I can recall past discussion on forums with some visas and questions about whether you have had a visa before, had an application rejected, breached conditions or been deported etc. , and not sure if the questions are a reference to just Australia.
So do read the application form carefully.

Hi again,

The forms do ask about deportation from another country. Were you deported because you overstayed your visa?

As wanderer says, go through the forms carefully and get your partner to help you too.

No deportation at all, i came back myself and nobody asked me to leave to country,

'''and not sure if the questions are a reference to just Australia'' yes these questions reference to the australia,
if you violated australian visa or received Australian visa etc.

i am not sure if that can be a ''rejection'' reason violation of the student visa an another country..

i never received Australian visa and never applied before. i have been checking internet about that and never seen a clue that this kind of thing will result a ''rejection''

my main concern is if the Australian Consulate would ring the american immigration to ask about my past life in usa,
l
ike i said i have police clearance and i dont have any crime record.


and then they will be asking to me why you didnt mention about that violation to us eventhough there is no question on the application forms..

that is not justice (

All anyone is asked to do in making an application is to complete it accurately and honestly.
You actually make a declaration to that effect when signing an application.

If you do that and there are no questions on the application form to overstaying a visa other than for Australia then you'll not need to disclose that occurrence from the distant past.
If however there are questions that could be vaguely as interpreted to such a matter for any country, you should answer honestly, so either way honesty will pay.

If there is no question about other countries and with the remote possibility, your overstay was dredged up and you're asked why it was not declared, then the honest answer is that it was not asked for.

As I said, just make sure you read the questions very carefully and do not rush your application for many visa applications are rejected each year because of incomplete or inaccurate applications.
