Where does everyone get their statutory declarations and 888 forms wittnessed? In Islamabad.

@Pakaus

To my understanding Form 888 and Statutory Declarations are Australian documents and both should be provided by Australian citizens such as

You need 2 Form 888 signed by people living in Australia who knows both the partners

You need statements from sponsor on Statutory Declaration

Who can witness above documents are already mentioned on cover letter of each document.

 

Statements from relatives and friend living in Pakistan can be provided affidavit form or plain paper attested by oath commissioner

Any way what documents you are looking to get witnesses?

You don't need to get Form 888s and Stat Declarations signed in front of anyone in Pakistan. However you will be asked to submit 2+ affidavits from your pakistani friends/relatives who could vouch for your relationship. For those, go to Islamabad kachehri in F-8 Markaz and ask anyone sitting on the street to point you to an "Oath Commissioner". They are a dime a dozen and you won't have any trouble locating one. You will need to get the affidavits signed in front of the said official for them to attest it. Shouldn't cost you more than a few hundred rupees.

Is it possible that you lodge your application in June 2017 and haven't had any interviews or anything yet? It has been 15 month and I'm so frustrated ?

Did you get the generic email asking to upload any documents within 28 days? It usually receive after 7-8 months of submission?

Hello everyone,

I am new to this forum. I am really upset and stressed about this whole visa 309. This application is for my husband. I am a Australian Permanent resident. Application done in Australia but processing center is South Africa. It's been more than 14 months and we have not heard anything. Police checks and medicals done. Really struggling here and my poor husband is depressed and always sick because of this separation. I flew to see him in June this year and now we still wait. Timeline is below.

DOL: 30th June 2017

medicals done in july 2017

2 tourist visa rejected: one in august 2017 and another in february 2018

police checks done in june 2018

medicals again in june 2018

No news till now, no calls or interview date. 

I am so worried and so is my husband. Our marriage anniversary is 2 years this october.

Please if anyone has some advise.

Thank you.

Hi Tochika

This stuff is not for the faint hearted and I know how you feel. I was lucky to get mine granted in ten 10 months.  

Reading your thread it would seem that you medicals and police clearances have expired by now. Are you dealing with an agent? Have you contacted immigration Pretoria?

Im asking because i used an agent and in some instances i had to call Pretoria because my agent wasnt getting back to me in time.

Yes missA my husband got new medicals and PCC done too. But I am guessing he will need to do it again as it only lasts 3 months. I just don't understand this delay. Anyway to answer your question, i used a migration agent here in Australia and they are so slow and not helping. I don't know who to call in Pretoria and the website only has an inquiry form. Just just reply your application is within timelines. 

Is there a number to call? Agent said they won't take calls.

I see noted on that. 

Can I ask a personal question here. Is age an issue with visa 309. I mean if there is a gap. But we have proved our relationship with financials and chats and photos. Even my recent trip to visit him and his family and attending family functions, funeral,etc

Always keep your proof its the only thing that can prove a truthful loving relationship, especially if you are living apart. The 309 is the first part of this visa anyway, Immigration want to be satisfied that is legitimate relationship.

For Australian Immigration purposes they will be considered valid for 12 months by the Dept of Home Affairs.

Hi, anyone here who applied for a family sponsored visa 600, while already having applied for a spouse visa? How do you notify the department that you are applying for the second one? What are the chances of family sponsored one getting approved?
