I think we applied with an older form and there have been no issues. We applied via the Berlin office and printed the application in September or October and didn't have it ready to send until the 21st of November. Apparently they can change forms every November but we didn't know and have since been contacted by the CO asking for medicals and plice checks with no reference ever to wrong forms. Maybe the Berlin office are less strict?

hi guys, my fiance and I are just about to submit our PMV application. I have just noticed that the Form 80 is in two versions. I printed the first one (shorter one) in November and last week I printed another one which seems to be as long as the form 40SP if not longer, more detailed and requesting for more certified copies of documents. You might want to beware of this.

Cheers, Gerrywins

Yes, i noticed that also... such a pain, i do have a question also, in regards to form 40SP, just in relation to Part D in which it asks about details relating to "Name as shown in passport" and later asks for your passport number, i was under the impression a passport wasnt a requirement for the sponser?, and so what am i to do about the questions?, leave them blank or...?

Hi Jager,
Yes, you need to provide this information of the names shown on your passport, the passport number and a certified copy of your aussie passport.Form 40, the new one is such a pain.Today I have spent 200euros just getting additional certified copies and police checks for form 40.

guys i would suggest filling in all forms on the pc using pdf x-change software. you can edit / change all input. even keep a version for all forms before and after checking to ensure that all data is correct. hope this helps.

Hey Hugogo, could you please pm me the exact name of that software, it is actually much better than keeping photocopies around haha.

Regarding the form changes in Jan 2012, this is feedback I received from the Dept. :

Form 80 has recently undergone significant changes to it's layout and the questions asked. As a result of the form being ready earlier than anticipated and the demand for the reworked form, the form owner decided to release the form earlier than the April 2012 cycle release date. The fillable PDF version of the form will be available from 26 March 2012.

The 04 12 version of the form is available on the internet and has been released as a non essential change, meaning that the printed version of the form and the previous version available on the web are still able to be used until the April cycle release date (26 March 2012).

A copy of the summary of change for 01 January 2012 is available at:

....immi.gov.au/allforms/application-forms/forms_changes.htm

The summary of change advises which forms have changed and what the changes were for each form at the last cycle.

How is the July-1st change going to affect the application process? Is there a point in applying before the date or is the date you apply considered (pre-change)?

I hear panicking warning from people, so I'm wondering...
