Australia PR Invitation documents, Form 80 and 1221 sample

Australia Skillselect PR Invitation 189, 190 Document Checklist

If you have submitted SkillSelect EOI (Expression of Interest) with good skillselect points and have got the invitation to apply for visa, you have 60 days to gather all your documents and submit.

Documents for Australia 189, 190 visa Invitation - Primary Applicant

Pre-apply or wait for invitation

You can apply for these documents even before getting invitation as they take time.

  1. Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) - valid for 12 months
    All countries that you have lived in past 10 years for more than 12 months (collectively, even if you made multiple trips), need to have a PCC.

    USA FBI clearance certificate
    Indian Police cleance (PCC) with Indian Embassy process.

  2. English Language Test Report
    Tips on scoring 79+ in PTE in first attempt with a week of preparation.

  3. Education and Employment Verification Report
    Many of you might use ACS (Australian Computer society) for your evaluation.

  4. Medical Test Report
    Using List of approved physicians, you can get medical tests done.

    Medical test cost in USA, insurance and HSA FAQs.

    After you get the invitation, you can generate the HAP ID from Australia ImmiAccount website.
    Go to View Health Asessment -> Organize Health Examination -> Print Referral Letter

    Use this referral letter (unique HAP ID is printed on it). You need to generate separate HAP ID and hence referral letters for each one of the applicants (your spouse and dependent kid).

    You can get your medical tests done even before getting an invitation but I would not recommend it.

    Generate HAP ID for medical before paying visa application fees

  9. Form 80

Sample Form 80 for Australia 189 Visa

  1. Form 1221
    The information in form 1221 is 99% same as you would have filled in Form 80.
    This form may or may not be requested in your 189 skillselect invitation. Hence, fill it only if requested by Case Officer (CO).

Some people upload it without even being asked by CO, just to make sure no time is lost between CO requesting it and then you upload and CO takes time to verify.
It is your choice.

As per the official Australian guidance here, Form 80 is not mandatory either if you are applying from outside Australia.
But, as a matter of saving time, you should be ready with it if CO asks for it.

If you are in USA, you can submit W2 or your tax returns.

I wonder if forms W-2 filled online will meet this requirement. I’m doing mine with the IRS website, as well as this third-party platform to store them there. It’s fine for the US, but I’m not sure about Australian government

Hi @aGordeno
Not sure why are you filling W2 your self. It is normally filled and issued to you by your employer.

That’s the one you have to submit.
You can also submit your US tax return.
