For Form 888 - it should be an Australian citizen or PR who completes the form - but the form does state if you are overseas and unable to arrange for that, then someone who isn't can too: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/form.../forms/888.pdf

Can you please let me know if the Statutory declaration format given as per PDF shared. If someone from India is giving the Statutory declaration for employment verification taken from either senior colleague or same level colleague.
Will the same format can be followed exactly and Act mentioned as ”Statutory Declarations Act 1959" same to be mentioned in SD OR it has to be as per Indian laws for statutory declaration by Notary.
I can see many format available online but not sure which one to follow.

Secondly, which all stamps are required for the same
- Notary number stamp (mentioning signed before)
- Notary date stamp
- Applicable for all Embassy
- True copy

Your reply will be highly appreciated on above two points.

It depends mate - if you need an Aussie SD - you have to follow the requirements for an Aussie SD to the letter in terms of the authorised witnesses list and template used. The easiest way to get this done offshore is via an Australian Embassy / High Commission (which is what we did).

Having said that, our lawyer said that a SD that conforms to the standards necessary for the offshore country in question is fine too - but we were just super risk averse and opted to go for an Aussie SD.

If you are looking for a SD in lieu of an employment reference letter as evidence for skilled employment claims in India, there are many instances on this forum of people using a SD that conforms to the standards necessary in India. I have no clue about those requirements but I'm sure colleagues on this forum will help

Any Expert comment on my queries as below:

1. If I have submit the Statutory declaration for employment reference what should be the correct format? Can someone please share the desired format for SD, please ?

2. If someone from India is giving the Statutory declaration for employment verification taken from either senior colleague or same level colleague. Does format should mention the Act mentioned as ”Statutory Declarations Act 1959" as per Aussie Rule OR it has to be as per Indian laws for statutory declaration by Notary. I can see many format available online but not sure which one to follow?

3. Which all stamps are required for the same

Based on the small sample pool on Immitracker* It looks like case officers have started working on contacting applicants (from late feb - Mar, one from 2018) for further documents.

My guess is that they're making sure applications are decision-ready once Oct starts to meet processing timelines. They've pushed back timelines by a month previously, I think to buy a month's time to work solely on 489 applications. Hopefully we can see some grants in early Oct.

Like many of you, I'm waiting anxiously for the grant -- I've spent a significant amount of money + have been kept in a limbo of life decisions due to delays. Fingers crossed!

No grants for 189 visa. Not sure what DIBP is up to. I tried to analyze the trends of last year but could not relate to this years slow processing.

There is no relation. Stop analyzing!
This year is different due to changes in the visa system and huge backlog

Just wait for your case to be picked up. Untill then just get on with your life

You have completed your assessment, got your invite, submitted your application, then why are you asking about Statutory declarations at this stage ?

Cheers

Cause I know my verification may not be going positive from HR for one one employer due to reference letter taken from senior colleague directly not from HR and it will result in NJL , cause of which I will have to prepare the additional documentations from my side to proof my employment.
