Visa applications – Get it right the first time !

Immigration EmigrationWhen it comes to preparing a visa application to live, study or work in Australia, it is of utmost importance to have the right paperwork.

Always be sure your information is accurate at the beginning. In fact, before you start filling in forms you need to be aware that any information you provide can be substantiated with evidence. Printed documents, letters or certificates have to be in place to support whatever information you have given to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP – The Department). It is especially important to ensure dates given to the Department can be verified.

A successful visa application depends on how you fill in forms and consistency with the supporting documents attached. Dates are especially important. It is a common error that dates on a person’s CV do not match the dates given on an employment reference, which may conflict with dates entered in the Department’s application. A good and effective migration agent will cross check dates to ensure total accuracy in the information provided.

Get it right the first time. It is far more costly and sometimes too late to try and recover from an unsuccessful application.

In addition to providing inaccurate information or unsubstantiated information is technically submitting incorrect documents. Common mistakes include submitting a passport photo which is the wrong size, shade or colour, providing technically incorrect police clearances (e.g. State instead of Federal) and birth certificates that do not have the parent’s names. These technical mistakes can make all the difference between an approved visa and a “please try again” note from the Department.

The Department has specific guidelines as to their requirements for submitting supporting documents. As an applicant, it is critical that you read and understand the Department’s guidelines thoroughly. If you appoint a dependable migration agent, they will guide you through the process and ensure that the correct documents are always provided to the Department in accordance with their requirements.
