Hi all, I hope you're having a great day! I couldn't find any posts that match my circumstances, so I'm posting my questions here (listed and numbered at the end). I'm getting my documents together for a Skills Assessment from VETASSESS so I can submit an EOI but I'm stuck. I can't provide all of the payment evidence to support my work experience. I am also missing a Statement of Service letter for two of the jobs. I have plenty of other documentation to prove I worked there for the times stated. For this situation, Section 7 of the Eligibility Criteria page on VETASSESS states that I can provide a Statutory Declaration or Affidavit: https://www.vetassess.com.au/skills-assessment-for-migration/professional-occupations/eligibility-criteria#670 The website provides a template: https://www.vetassess.com.au/Portals/0/Downloads/qualification_assessment/VETASSESS_StatutoryDeclaration_or_Affidavit_template.pdf On the template it says to refer to an Australian Embassy. I did this and they were only willing to help if I could provide the correct, completed document. They won't advise me or take any responsibility if it's incorrectly filled out. So my questions are these: What's the difference between a Statutory Declaration and an Affidavit? Which one should I provide for the Skills Assessment? Where the template says: (Provide any required information you are unable to supply through official documents such as, for example, a description of the tasks associated with a particular period of employment). Do I list out all the documents I'm using to back my claims? And do I list them by file name as they are attachments? Where the template says: To support the claims made in this declaration, I have included the following documents: (list and attach the required evidence to support the statutory declaration or affidavit) Do I simply list all of the required documents (e.g. passport photo, Statement of Service, payment evidence etc.)? And do I list them by file name as they are attachments? Is anyone able to show me an example of what a correct and complete Statutory Declaration / Affidavit (whichever one I need) should look like? (Obviously changing any personal/sensitive information). Thanks in advance for your help with this! Jon
stephjayne165 posted a topic in UK ChatHi Guys, I'm shortly going to be moving back to the UK, and am hoping to bring my Aussie partner with me. We've hit a snag with his UK visa requirements and really need the help of a good honest migration agent (happy to pay, but don't want to be taken for a ride!). Looking for someone who is based in Melbourne, or anywhere else in Aus for that matter, purely for ease of communication. Any recommendations please share! Cheers
