Or if anyone has any questions, just contact / PM me and I'm happy to help!
Hey,

Thanks for the awesome list!

A couple of questions that have popped up immediately (one is kinda what I've asked above):

1. Did your stat decs repeat what was in the application form for nature of relationship etc or does it talk about different stuff? Or did you just write "see stat decs" in these boxes?
2. For the list of countries visited I might have some problems - being European like you! Did you just put the months where you were unsure rather than exact dates? Does my Australian sponsor also need to do this?
3. When you say there's a maximum of 60 documents excluding the sponsor's, does this mean the sponsor's are uploaded into a different area? How many documents can the sponsor upload? Is it 60 again?

Hey Arabelle,

No worries, hope that'll help you! Regarding to your questions:

1. My partner repeated the stat dec & application form a bit, but in the application form he stated it a bit more detailed then in the stat dec. Myself, I also wrote more of a summary in the stat dec and then I gave a very detailed description in the form.
2. Yes so annoying right! I've put in the exact dates, like I stated in my post I am very organised lol so on my computer I've got folders with photo's of all those trips saying Paris 1-11-2013 to 4-11-2013 etc... But if you're unsure I'd just put in an estimate if I were you. I believe as a European we're not considered high risk and it's understandable that we travel all the time do different countries, right? The list of countries visited does not apply for the sponsor (phew..)
3. Yes that's correct. The sponsor's documents are uploaded in a different area, but you can add these in the application, it just isn't included in the same area. It states (Person 1 - you) and (Person 2 - the sponsor). Just note that the sponsor's documents include stuff like police check, evidence of identity, form 40SP, evidence of residence, birth certificate, and that's about it. So all the other stuff (financial, photos, etc. you'll just upload in your section, that's why I added the tip to merge a lot of documents)

Here's my stat dec, I've used this one: ag.gov.au/Publications/Documents/CommonwealthStatutorydeclarationform.PDF and copied my statement in section two with Adobe Reader (because there's not that much space to write it by hand...)

I don't think that it is a good idea to post your actual statement online.

People can be devious (or just lazy) and duplicate your wording with of course their own situation/dates etc. You don't want your statement making the rounds publicly and becoming a template especially when your visa hasn't been granted yet.

Maybe I am just overly cautious, but it's always better to be safe than sorry.

Hi Syd, I agree with you and I've thought about this, but I googled a couple of statements myself and came up with details & ideas to put in there. I hope people understand this is just a guideline, but yes there are lazy people who would just copy & paste. Just to give Arabelle an example/hand here ... and I'll delete it after. thanks

Syd, I think you are making a very valid point .

This sort of material could easily be turned into a template.

Some time ago there was a fool selling fake documents for the second WHV on GumTree, which resulted in many visa cancellations and a tightening of the rules.

People never fail to amaze me!! I'm cautious because I have repeatedly seen people with good intentions being harmed by others.

With the Internet, one can never be too careful.

So annoying that a few people doing something stupid like that (including those who were stupid enough to pay this guy) can ruin it for so many!

It still amazes me that you have to do the regional work at all. Nothing like that exists for those who go to the UK or NZ on WHVs.

The good news is that the options have been expanded for those choosing to work in Northern Australia, incl. beautiful Cairns.

The reasoning behind the regional work requirement is to get people out of the capital cities and into the regional areas for the benefit of regional economies. They provide a major economic boost both through their labour and the money they spend locally.
