I was asked by the Dept of Home Affairs to fill out the Form 80. I am stuck with some question items and your advice would be appreciated:
23. Do you currently have a partner? —>If we don’t live together but have been dating and seen each other as a partner, should I tick yes? It’s not the same as de facto relationship status, correct?
44. Have you traveled to Australia before? —> If I already indicated my current visa type in Q.41 as 457 visa holder, can I say NO to Q45 since I have never traveled to Australia until my 457 visa was granted?
57. Have you been refused a visa for Australia or any other country?–> If my first 186 visa application (Direct Entry) has been refused, shall I still tick yes?
Thank you for your kind reply, Anil. Somehow I thought I could still tick yes to this partner item given the stable relationship we have and it’s different from question 2 regarding the de facto status.
Also, do you know where I’d upload all the additional documents requested by them? Shall I still go back to “Action” and then “Attach documents” that I have already submitted and are received by them? Or shall I upload them under “Additional documents”?
Hi Anil, just double check if I am doing it correctly.
Is it correct that I shall upload all the new documents under Actions–> Attach Documents–> Additional Documents? After that, I press “I confirm I have provided information as needed” and the message will be sent to the case officer?
Wow, you’re so responsive, Anil Would you advise that I also attach a letter in response to the case officer’s requested documents (e.g., FBI clearance, police checks, Form 80)? The reason I’d like to include it is that I have got my FBI clearance but don’t think it’s necessary to also get state police checks as I haven’t been back to the States since 2014. The website says living there in the past 12 months, which doesn’t apply to me. I also confirmed it with another case officer when I emailed them my inquiry via NSW PSE.
I just wanted to justify on the safe side. Thank you.
