Hi, I'm just wondering if the Immigration case officer have an access to travel history such as entry/exit in Australia? Will they know even if I don't update them?
And also if they conduct phone interview when processing a partner visa?
Thanks in advance! X
Long time reader - nearly there now so update below for information in case anyone finds it useful:-

I was wondering if anyone who recently applied from the UK had a check-list of documents required for Citizenship?
The Immi site isn't too straightforward and doesn't list everything in one place (https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/citizenship/become-a-citizen/permanent-resident#HowTo) and I've seen people hyperlink to an IMMI checklist which has since been removed.
Any help appreciated - Thank you! 😀
you say" I would recommend you to please have a look at your submission documents, as you are a direct stream you are obliged to work for your employer for 2 years (correct me if I am wrong)."
i am correcting you since you are wrong. not only is this not selectively applicable to direct stream (it applies to 186 as a whole) but also, there no employment conditions except not making a fraudulent application that can result in the visa being cancelled. Normal employee turnover- resignation with proper notice IS NOT a cause for visa cancellation. layoffs, resignations etc are not fraudulent. they are normal business operations. if you abscond without notice ,then its a breach of contract in most permanent jobs. thats really about the only thing you need to ensure - leave through official channels
187 visa on the other hand does require you to stick around for 2 yrs. even if laid off, you need to find employment in ONLY a regional area.
Before application and during processing, you must have a permanent contract or atleast 2 years of confirmed contract with the employer. This is mandatory. 186 legislation doesnt have any employment conditions AFTER it is granted.
There is no evidence that this is not what the 186 visa intends. no migration agent has stated otherwise as well (i am not one)
