In the document checklist page on the Immi site for this VISA, Form 80 isn't listed (https://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/309-100.aspx), but it is an option when you get to the documents uploading section after submitting and paying for your VISA. There are plenty in there that you don't need, though, so I'm unsure about Form 80.

I apologize if this has been asked before (as it likely has)(and I know that's frustrating for you guys), but since things seem to keep getting updated I wanted to make sure that I get the most up to date answer I can.
I applied from the US and I submitted one. The US embassy seems to ask some applicants for it but not all. I submitted one to preempt their request because I wanted to avoid a delay in my application while they waited for me to submit it. You have nothing to lose by submitting it if they don't need it, but if they need it and have to wait for you to get it to them it'll delay your application a bit.

Cheers, CG. But uggggh. -_-

These questions all (or most) seemed to be asked on the online form anyway, so I'm hoping it's not going to be a thing. Doing the travel one there for the last 10 years nearly did me in (17 countries in the last 5 years alone). Will probably get to work on it then just in case, but employment since birth is going to be a tough one to sort out...

That's only if you're going for a refugee or hummanitarian VISA if I am reading this right.

"Have you travelled to any country other than Australia in the last 10 years?
Note: If you are applying for a refugee/humanitarian visa, you must provide all visits to any country other than Australia for the last 30 years.
Include:"

Hi H.Protagonist -

On the old form it was only for refugee, etc visa. On the new Form 80 everybody is required to provide 30 years of travel and address history, and lifetime history of employment and education.

Best,

Mark Northam

The form was changed about a month ago. Form 80 now asks for 30 years worth of travel. Make sure you complete the current form or they'll ask you to do it again.

Hi, Mark. The link GBP provided, which seems to have the right immi address (or a valid one at any rate) goes to a From 80 that says what I copy and pasted above. This isn't the most up to date Form 80, then, or am I just reading this wrong?

Yes, I just realized it is a different form from the Mar 2014 edition.
Madness! Backtracked?

Looks like DIBP very recently (and very quietly) issued a new Form 80 that backs off the requirements for Address and Travel History to 10 years (from 30) unless you are applying for a refugee or humanitarian visa - hooray! However education and employment for your entire lifetime is still there...

Best,

Mark Northam
