And to you! Thanks, I'm on my way right now, luckily my ship is at a repair berth so I am able to catch the train. Will be there in 30 mins.

Did you get the statutory declaration? Why did you go to the Australian embassy?

Yes I got it certified rather fast actually! I was in and out in no time at all.

Stat decs need to be certified by a consular officer in person. Certain other people are able to certify but the list is very small and they have to be connected to Australia and also qualified in Australia.

Because I've mainly sailed on Bermuda flagged vessels.

I only uploaded the UK PCC for myself and wife and also a NZ PCC for her also. I wasn't able to obtain a Bermuda one.

You may hear something in the next week or so.

There doesn't seem to be much by way of a pattern, some get direct grants quickly/slowly, others get a case officer early and wait for months for a grant and others get a case officer later and get a grant in the following few days.

I wouldn't worry too much, if you haven't heard anything by next week then maybe try giving them a call.

Quite true actually coz DIBP'S target processing time is 3 months (for 70% cases)..so I would wait for a week or so before calling them up....

Hello Captain C ,

Got a mail from DIBP to provide character stat dec as I was unable to provide a Panama PCC ,need to know how much time do Aus. embassy take to provide the same and do I need to carry email copy from DIBP along with my passport and form.

 

Regards,

 

Sierra

The embassy don't do the stat dec, you do. They only certify that you signed it in their presence.

You don't need to take anything other than passport as ID to prove you are who you say you are.

If they require a character Stat Dec as you say then there is an example here > http://www.border.gov.au/Forms/Documents/character-statutory-declaration.pdf#search=Statutory%20declaration

Otherwise see http://www.ag.gov.au for more guidance.

Hi, I have just seen your post from last month, I think it was missed due to the link contained in it. Are you still looking for oral's prep material?

I think the only consular service desk in India is the high commission in New Delhi. See the link here >http://india.highcommission.gov.au/ndli/consular.html
