Can a UK passport holder witness an Australian stat Dec form?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

When using stat declarations for a de-facto visa application it states that they must be from Australian citizens. We have been travelling the world for 2 years and have lived and been close to some Australians but would like to include statements from UK passport holders.

 

My question is this: Can a foreign citizen witness the stat dec if it was made by an Australian citizen and also if it was written by a close friend who is not Australian?

 

If you have had experience with this your views and thoughts would be appreciated.

The answer is yes. The applicant should include at least 2 form 888s from Australians, but in addition can include any others. Under the Migration Act DIAC must take note of any information and/or documentation an applicant provides.

 

Hope this helps,
