887 application with odd document requests?

Recommended Posts

Hi all 

I have attached all the required documents to my 887 application but there are a few that don't make sense or don't seem to be connect to us as applicants

* I am filing the application myself and not using an agent as I did for my skilled 489. *

But it is asking for -

  • Form 956 - Advice by a registered migration agent/exempt person of providing immigration assistance
  • Form 956a - Appointment or withdrawal of an authorised recipient.

I've read the details on the forms and I'm confused as to who it relates to or who if anyone I need to appoint as migration advisor? 

also its asking my wife for - 

  • Custody, evidence of
  • Language, ability evidence of 

we have no children and had non listed on our application so cant provide a "custody form" and we scored enough points on our 489 skilled to not need the English test and our passport (UK passport) counted towards some of it (cant remember the point allocation now) so why just her for this document and why does she need it for the 887 and not 489? 

I have seen and been told that migration often request documents that aren't related and to ignore them, but I just need to check before I commit to that stance. 

 

thanks for all the help.

According to this page you need "Functional English" for the 887 visa.

That link takes you to this page:

To prove you have functional English, show us evidence that:

you are a citizen of and hold a valid passport issued by the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Canada, New Zealand or the Republic of Ireland

So for the request of language evidence I would upload a copy of her UK passport.

this is the section from the application - so from what I can see I said No to assistance. unless I've made a mistake somewhere.
