Immigration will tell you to only include travels to countries where you spent at least a couple of months over the past 10 years.
I rang them last year about this and they said they can appreciate people don't remember those dates.
I used to travel all the time back when I was living in Europe and it would have been super hard to compile everything, but just include countries you have spent a substantial amount on time in.

As for the dates, just give a rough estimate. That's what I did and they never questioned it!

My migration agent said it's standard practice to just list the first of the month as the date if you remember the month and year, but not exact date. I took a couple of little side trips to other European countries when I was studying abroad, but they aren't even in my passport because in the EU you can travel freely from country to country if you have an EU visa. So I'm listing the first of each month I traveled. Hope that helps, too.

I didn't get approved in one day no! God I wish i had been. Only took a couple of months though which was quite short considering the amount of time people seem to be spending waiting for their file to be even looked at!

and Yes, do put your partner's details. It's not because your relationship is not "official" as far as Australian immigration goes, that you guys aren't an item

Good luck!

I had the same issue. Studied in London for a semester but every weekend we went somewhere and only some countries stamp in and out so I just did my best estimate of dates. It's a lot of different dates to try and recall!

You need to fix the dates in your timeline, that is what is confusing people..

Ok this may be a dumb question. I am filling out the medical forms for my appt tomorrow and it asks if I have ever had any surgery or extended hospital stay I had a C section in 2010 and was in the hospital for 4 days. Is this something I should include?
