HI Sar_G. I had the same problem then about stat decs. However if you will check the details included in that form, it states something about for married couple and not for the fiancé one. So what we did was get 2 witness letter from my partner's friends and 2 witness letter on my part---non-aussies who met my partner while he was with me in my home country.

I am prepared to submit my PMV application this week. I just await for my other witness letter from friends and relatives (actually I asked for more witness letters from friends and relatives who met my partner just to solidify the good intention ).

Though at the very least, you should submit 2 statements from family and/or
friends who are aware of your intended marriage and can attest to your genuine intention to live together in an ongoing spouse relationship.
Though i am not a migration agent, so maybe you need confirmation from another person before submitting your application
Aussieboy,
Yes you're right i will not submit my application if i have doubts about something..so i will have to gather more ideas and advises from here..thanks

Hi kang, jajp n allansarh, just pm me here on the forum when you guys wants to meet up...
Ill be giving birth anytime soon n my fiancée doesn't have his visa yet because we haven't submitted the additional documents yet... He worked in UAE n were still waiting for the police clearance...he had some problem with his credit card debt there so we had to settle it first. We paid the debt already but it's still taking too long for the police clearance to be released
I am not hoping anymore that he would be here on the birth of our son but I'm just hoping that we'll be able to pass the additional documents before his 28 days due date... Oh! Well! I can't do anything but just to pray n trust The Lord...

Don't forget to pm me guys! Take care n god bless!!!

Hi LJ8
You do not need to use form 888 for your stat dec from friends and relatives. Yes you will need a certified copy (in Australia this is often done by a justice of the peace)of his passport. Not just for the embassy but for the CFO as well, make sure that you take a copy of the arrival and departure dates to and from PH. I have read where this has been requested previously at the CFO and it is also evidence to the time that he spent in PH with you.

I am hoping Mark Northam will respond as i was going to private message him but thought this would interest the wider group.

Do people get declined a visa without even getting an interview?
I am not talking about the obvious fraudulent ones, i am referring to people like myself who have been asked to provide additional documentation. The thought of "was it enough to satisfy them" keeps going through my mind. The embassy recieved the additional documents 17 December 2012 and it can take between 30 to 60 days to get a decision, so of course this is still "normal"wait time.

Sar_g,

There are actually 2 stat dec forms---one with the heading that says for partner visa and one that is a blank form. You may use the blank form where your witness can write the letter then have it signed by the author and stamped by any justice peace.

To lessen the hassle of having it JP-ed, I just asked them to typewritten their letters with their signature AND date AND attach any government IDs with them which includes their signature and photo in it.

witness letter + signature + date + attachment of any IDs = witness/testimony letter from friends and relatives of the non-aussie participant/ aussie participant

I've decided to give my friends and family 888 Forms to fill out. Fortunately it's easy for them to have them witnessed in Australia, most will be using a pharmacist to witness the forms. I don't think it will matter if I submit 888 Forms for my witness statements.
