Passport Validity for 175 visa application

Hello all,

I just recieved a positive skills assessment outcome and I am going to prepare the required documents for visa application ( 175 class). However, I got confused with regard the requirement of the passport validity when I was checking the DIAC website:


-"The passport you use should be the one you intend to use to travel to Australia if a visa is granted. This passport should be valid for at least two years.This passport must be used to provide evidence of your identity when required as part of your application process. You and any accompanying family members on your passport will need to present this passport to the doctor when undertaking health examinations. Accompanying family members who are not on your passport will also need to provide their own passpor".

-it's stated in the form 1276 (application for general skilled migration to Australia):" Details of the passport that you use for travel purposes
(provide details of the passport that you will use to enter Australia.
Enter these details exactly how they appear in your passport)
Note: It is strongly recommended that the passport be valid for at
least 6 months.
"


so, can any person clarify for me whether the validiy of my passport should be at least 6 months or 2 years at time of application.

any answer will be grately appreciated.

Kind regards,

You will find some variations of terminology in different areas of the Immi site, probably because there may be a number of different people in different areas updating site stuff more relevant to their area.

You'll note that even though the word " should " is reasonably strong it is considered to be strong as still in advisory and no " musts " mentioned and the reasoning behind the should with medicals could be that medicals are valid for 12 months and so they're also giving some leeway.
You ought to note also that it is not such a great idea for doing a medical prior to your visa application for if the processing time is to exceed or approach 12 months which may well be the case, you may have to repeat the medical.

Likewise, the " strongly recommend " re six months is that there are not too many visas that will be granted in under that time from date of application.

In either case, it is not to say that you cannot submit an application with a visa of less valifity time but for you to decide whether you renew your passport before application or perhaps have to do it while a visa is being processed and then go to the trouble of getting another certified copy of the ID page and send into Immi.

Thank you very much Wanderer.
To avoid any inconvenience or delay I may face, I will renew my passport ASAP.
Besides, I am wondering is it necessary to provide “Military discharge certificate for any applicant included in the application” for the 175 visa application.
Please note that I found this requirement in the “175_checklist.pdf” but when I went to check about it in the DIAC website through the link given in this checklist, I discovered that they are talking about Character and Penal Clearance Requirement and there is nothing about military discharge certificate.

Any clarification will be significantly cherished.
Thank you in advance

I think if you have a look at the application form there will be reference to military service and discharge papers and have you read all the links under Character for there are a few and there could be a reference there somewhere too.
