Inkhearted glad to see you had a productive day

1/ I think that may be abit too much for 3 weeks . Try and format it with no so much line spacing. I know with word 2014 it automatically formats it with a specific amount between each line which is really annoying.

2/ Personally I believe that too much is better than not enough. In the past we have done the boarding passes instead of the itinerary along with hotel bookings etc.

3/ They only issue them in one name. My plan was when the time came was to scan both the credit cards to show both have access to the credit card. I am not even sure if there are any banks that do joint credit cards.

Scanning both cards sounds like a good idea. For our credit card I also took a screen shot of the online account page where it indicates my partner as an authorized user.

We don't mind waiting if it takes a little longer to process paper application because now my husband and I are together and know that they will eventually be processing all applications and we will be praying for the best.
So no rush

Online application seems more like a head ache honestly speaking. I'm more comfortable doing it the old fashioned way
Thanks Mish!

Kind Regards,

I went through and deleted a bunch of stuff, basically leaving a few things that said “love/miss you” or discussed household running (bills, care of cats) or future plans. Down to 17 pages. Still too long? Most of that length is in formatting from Facebook—there are about 5 (shortish) messages per page. Should I get rid of the formatting or delete more things?

3. Bank statements. Anyone have experience with being a secondary card holder on a credit card?

Did you use email as well or just facebook? I find the gmail conversation view is really handy - it will put all the emails with the same subject together with the number of emails in a bracket, and the summary view gives the first line or so of the first email. Then it's really easy to make a screencap of the page of emails between the two of you, showing how many there were back and forth, without having to overload them with the individual emails. We had a number of emails about arrange skype times when my partner was overseas, so I just highlighted the word "skype". Etc.

I'm a secondary card holder - for my 820 I just said as much and then scanned the cards, to show they were the same card number for each of our names.

Hey everyone just wonder is VEVO the first point of update when there's an update to your visa status (e.g. 801 grant)? Or do they send an email/letter to you before VEVO is updated accordingly? I can't help myself from checking VEVO everyday

Same here. VEVO, ImmiAccount, Email - you name it - many times a day
Reading on the forum - the suggestion is VEVO updates before anything else, e.g. immiaccount or the email.

171 days since eligibility and counting

Yeah I do understand the feeling of being impatient but as you said just can not help it.

It was an online application.

Hey everyone,

My eligibility date for 801 is in 2 weeks time.

Am applying online, but have 2 questions here, would be great if anyone could help me out:

1. The Stat Dec for the 2 witnesses, does the person certifying the stat dec form for the witnesses need to know the visa applicant?
I am asking this because during my initial 820/801 application 2 years ago, one of my witness got his stat dec form certified by a police constable (in local police station) and the other witness got it certified at the local pharmacist. Both had no problems at all.
But this time around, my witnesses went to their bank manager and the bank manager refused to certify it for them saying that she(bank manager) can only certify the stat dec form if she knows the applicant (me). Does that makes sense? Did the rule/condition changed on this?

2. Besides the stat dec forms that need certifying, what other supporting documents need to be certified? I have lots of photos to upload, wedding invite, bank statement, lease agreement, zoo membership, etc....does all this need certifying as well?

I am basically done filling in the online form, just waiting to do a final check before i submit it, also to upload the documents, hopefully by this weekend....

Cheers!!

Thank you everyone for your input! Sorry I haven't posted in a few days, have been crazy busy. I also haven't had time to call about whether or not we can apply online early or if we do have to wait until the 2-year mark to press the button. I haven't forgotten though! Will try to call this week.

After battling with the scanner some more this week (it refuses to scan to .doc or .pdf on my computer, and refuses to register on my husband's computer half the time. Grr!) we FINALLY have nearly everything on my computer sorted into the appropriate folders. I'm feeling pretty good about the evidence we have, but I thought I'd post what we have here and if anyone has any other ideas I'd love to see if we can add anything.

Some of the general requirements:
  • Australian Police Check (which, if anyone was wondering, was processed in one business day! Still don't have it in my hands but I'd guess it will get here tomorrow)
  • Two Form 888s
  • Our own statements about our relationship.

Financial
  • A variety of credit card and debit card statements from joint accounts showing major expenses (joint travel, big vet bill for our accident-prone cat), as well as regular household expenses (rent, food, internet, utilities) and regular date nights to our favorite restaurant. I did the most recent statements from the past 6 months for both our savings account and credit card account, PLUS a couple of extra statements showing the major purchases. It seemed like a lot! I could do up to 12 months for the CC and all 24 months for the savings account if needed.
  • Copy of both our credit cards showing they are the same account (thank you for the idea!)
  • Snapshot of account page showing our other savings account that we only put money into, plus our travel card account. (again, thank you for the idea!)

Social
  • Copy of Europe Trip itinerary + plane tickets (for some reason we only have our tickets going TO Europe and not coming back, but hey--they know we're in the country!)
  • All Europe train tickets (7)
  • All Europe accommodation reservations (10)
  • Tour reservations in Europe (5)
  • Ticket stubs from castles, museums, and zoos in Europe.
  • Ticket stubs and receipts from plays seen at QPAC in Brisbane (3 - including tickets for a play we'll be seeing in March)
  • Ticket stubs from movies seen over the last few years. (would recommend to anyone else scanning these as soon as you get them! Most of them were useless because they were so faded!)
  • Ticket stubs from a museum event we attended together.
  • A selection of photos (6) of us together in Europe.
  • Our Facebook Friendship page.

Nature of Our Commitment to Each Other
  • Selection of Facebook communication during time apart.
  • Skype communication during time apart.
  • Our Super Fund Beneficiary information, showing each other as sole beneficiaries.

Nature of Household
  • A copy of our most current lease. (We just signed a new one. Is it helpful to provide 2014's lease as well? 2013's was included in our 820.)
  • An envelope showing both our names and address.
  • A statement about the division of household chores.
  • Vet Vaccination Certificates for both cats showing both our names as "owners"
  • Vet bill showing both our names as "owners"
  • Bank statements from joint accounts showing major household purchases such as a couch, fridge, and mattress.
  • Water bills showing both names and address (3).

And... I think that's everything. And once again, thank you to everyone who's helped out (both on this thread and posting ideas and things on the forum in general!)! I honestly don't know what I would do without this forum sometimes.
