Citizenship application first Australian visa and arrival question

Recommended Posts

Hi, just need some assistance a relative of mine is applying for her Australian citizenship through the online application. She has come across two question she is a bit unsure about what to enter :

1. Date the applicant's first Australian visa was granted (if known)

2. Date the applicant first arrived in Australia on that visa (if known)

She originally visited Australia in 2016 for a month on Visitor Visa, then she returned to her home country and then later after a year in 2017 she entered Australia on Spouse Provisional Visa 309 and then after a year got her permanent residency visa 100. So for the first & second question she is not sure to put the visitor visa date from 2016 or the spouse visa date which got granted in 2017? If anyone had a similar application can assist in answering this would be much appreciated?

 

Thanks in advance,

Surely she knows what first means. It means the earliest of 2 things,

2016 is the first visa and 2017 is the second visa.

What if there’s break of 2 visa? Would that reset her first date to arrival of the second one?

Just answer the questions exactly as they are written.

There is no reason to add what ifs and what abouts, just answer the question as asked.

They are not trick questions and immigration will have a record of all her visas and entries anyway, that’s what makes it so annoying!


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:
