Hi everybody!

I am new to this forum, as I was stunned at how much great advice has been given. I am currently finishing up the application for my Partner Onshore Visa 820, and have a few questions.

1)I have the 2 stat declarations from Australian citizens. In the Partner Migration booklet it says it is ok for it to be written on a normal paper as long as it is signed, dated and authorised. Would it still be required to hand in the Form 888 with it, attached?


2) My partner and I have never had joint bank account, but have gone on frequent travels together where everything was split. therefore I have many copies of hotel bookings, flight bookings, over the course of our relationship all with names etc.

I am however, not sure how to present all the evidence. Should I divide all the evidence with dividers (such as a blank white paper stating Financial Aspect, Social aspect etc)?Is it a good idea to have stat declarations for all the evidence, such as photos?

I also have a lot of ticket stubs, such as back from 2008 when we went to sport events together, etc. How to present that sort of evidence? Would it be formally ok to glue them onto a white page, and is it acceptable to write details underneath?


Am very anxious as I want to hand in a good application. Any sort of tips would be greatly appreciated

Kind regards
Lulu

Welcome to the forum, Lulu!

1) All Australian Citizens need to provide their statement on Form 888 (and I believe provide a certified copy of their ID as well). Statutory declarations can be written on plain paper for people who are NOT australian citizens, but Australians have to use Form 888. They are legally culpable if they lie, so statements on Form 888 are "official."

2) Organize these things however you feel is best. If you've read this thread, you can see there are many ideas on the topic. But the first place to start is with your own embassy's website. Each embassy prefers things different ways, and there may be tips for how to best present it in there.

I don't know that I would glue anything to paper, because if they wanted to examine the back of it, they couldn't.

For photos, you definitely need to describe who's in the picture and what the event was, but it's not necessary to do a stat dec for that kind of thing.

Let me know if you have further questions!

You know CG our migration agent gave us a template to give to our stat dec writers - including Australians. We ended up getting the stat decs written on state templates and not the form 888. No id sent nothing and it was accepted. I wonder why our migration agent wouldn't get us to get the Aussies to do form 888?

Actually, I think your agent was right - but it still has to be on either the Form 888 or the specific template provided on the attorney general's website.

It says this on the Form 888's instructions, here. (Page One)

It's funny - I've seen the stat dec template used for those outside Australia, but never for those who are Australian citizens. Looks like it's perfectly okay, though. Learn something new every day.

Still, why not just use Form 888 if you're the OP? The point is the same - you still can't just use "regular paper" as the OP asked for Australian citizens.

Hey everyone,

I'm applying for a de facto offshore this week.

If much of my financial evidence is joint travel purchases, should I distribute them across sections? Our proof for financial is a bit shallow without any travel purchases? What do you think?

Thank you.

I am a filipina. I would just like to ask if you know any filipino communities here in Melbourne?

Did you try to ask your migration agent for any reason for doing so? THat is strange.
