Can anyone answer the following queries.
1. What additional evidences do we submit with PCC confirming that we have actually lived on the addresses, say 4 places, mention in PCC. (Or do we not need to give anything additional at all)?
2. What evidences do we need to submit for trips to other countries (none longer than 14 days)? E.g. Exit/Entry stamps pages of passport, air tickets, boarding passes, hotel bills, etc.
Quick response will be much appreciated.

1 - We don't have to submit any such evidence afaik. For example my Australia / Singapore PCC doesn't list the addresses I've lived at (although you enter that info into the respective forms when applying for the PCCs) - it just has my current postal address listed.

2 - Again none unless explicitly asked I would think, I didn't submit any such evidence. Of course it was all recorded for the past ten years in my Form 80 / Form 1221.

For those awaiting grants, Saturday and Sunday seem like you were born on 29-Feb. A birthday after every 4 years![emoji38]

Thanks for the quick response. What I infer from your response is that if one has lived in three different places in the same city in last 10 years, only 1 PCC will be submitted having current address.
Details of the three addresses will be mentioned in form 80 but no evidence will be submitted for those addresses.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks.

Attaching documents

==============



Friends, as per the website --

https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help...elp-h1075.aspx



"If you exit from the 'Attach documents' screen, you can navigate directly back to that page by expanding the application on the list page and selecting Attach documents"



However i dont see any link to directly navigate to the attach document section.

Each time i have to click on the navigation buttons of the application pages to reach in attach document section in last. Am i missing something here ?



Thanks...!!



As per my experience, Until you submit the application the only way to reach the attachment section is by going thru the 17 page application and go to end to attach more docs.

Once application is submitted you will start seeing sections on the left.

Yes, I leave to work at 6am. Hehe. Every day I wake up at 5.30 am and the first thing I do is check my Gmail. From the past few days I have been very busy at work and been very low on physical energy (lot of travelling within India.pheww) and did not have the mood to check my mail and end up to see the same old Advt mail saying buy one shorts for 30% off lol . From past 3 days I literally did not open my email and today also was the same situation. I got dressed and I pick up my mobile, the notification bar is lit up and screaming at me to click it open. It was not the Advt mail nor some spam e mail, it was the GOLDEN EMAIL (well it is a black & white mail and pdf, don’t expect a golden color Email for Visa Grant lol)
Yes folks, <TODAY IS MY DAY > <GOT MY VISA GRANT>.

IST - 3.21am
Adelaide time - 8.20 am - first thing CO did was press my Grant button i guess today :D thank you my dear CO . i love u :)


I completely broke down into tears lol lol lol .. then I realized oh frig I am going to miss my cab to office and got my happy ass to work grinning corner to corner. I had never been this happy for anything earlier in my life. I never wanted something this bad previously. My life’s journey till now is another big long crap story with many losses and people around me wanting to see me fail and suffer but I always took the negative energy to feed myself into positivity and aim to prove myself to them, but I will limit only to my Visa Journey here .. hehehe
It all started in 2017, I got to know that we can apply for a PR to other countries. You can call me dumb, but I never bothered or cared to look at all this earlier. Haha. somehow did not bother to research more in 2017 and it was already Jan 2018. It was Feb 2018 and I woke up one morning and I told my wife and my mum, I am applying for PR. All were shocked but happy that I took a firm decision for once. Australia was always in our heads for numerous reasons and mum was not comfortable with frozen temperatures :D
Feb – 2018 – Decision to apply for PR
Feb – March – 2018 – Preparation for PR & IELTS. This was the most crucial part and time. I wanted to gather all informations from all possible places on the process and other things. I checked with couple of agents also and the quoted price was close to 1-1.5 lacs. All they said was we will create EOI, we will lodge the Visa, you gather all documents as per our checklist and give it to us, if something is wrong we will take care and you need to collect additional docs and give it to us that time. I was like what the f…… hope you guys understand my feelings here .. hehe .So, I took some time to gather all the info myself and decided that I myself can be an agent :p

April – 07.04.2018 – IELTS, Results – 20.04.2018 (L-8.5 / R-7.5 / W-7 / S-7.5) I was happy that I got 10 points for the PR and started the next stage of activities.

CDR – May 2018 - Engineers Australia – I had a blast writing the 3 CDR’s as lot of old memories were just flashing by. Wanted it to be right the first time as EA is very particular about Plagiarism and I took almost a month to write 3 CRD’s. 2 projects from my second company and 1 project from final year engineering. Checked them using www.writecheck.com for plagiarism % and it was less than 3% on the first go. (this web page is for public use powered by Turnitin)

EA Fast track – 10.06.2018, my first ever waiting game began. I had 10 points for Experience at this time.

EA contact – 04.07.2018 – R&R for first company and PF statement for First company. R&R I tht was not necessary because I had not written any projects from this company, but I had applied for Employment verification and evaluation too with EA, hence need to provide everything. PF was not available online as this was before UAN was introduced. Had to go to the PF office where the account was present and convinced them to give the PF statement for my account within a weeks’ time.

EA Docs upload and IP – 08.07.2018

EA outcome – 12.07.2018

Lodged EOI – 15.07.2018 with 15 points for experience (gained 5 points on 14.07.2018 and I was in the same role and company as indicated to EA)
While I was waiting for EA outcome I realized that 65 points for Mechanical engineer was not enough to secure an invite and with updated exp points and total 70 was also not enough to secure the invite quickly which I wanted to do badly.

PTE 1st attempt – 15.06.2018 (L- 82 / R-73 / W-81 / S-82) Big Bummer, missed in reading alone. God know how. I had prepared very well. Result came the next day I gave the exam. (Center – Chopras)

PTE 2nd attempt – 20.06.2018 (L- 60 / R-63 / W-79 / S-30) Gave the exam at Coimbatore as I had been there with friends for the week end. God alone knows what happened here. Results were delayed by 15 days and I had to repeatedly call PTE for update. Worst nightmare. (Center – EDWISE)

PTE 3rd attempt – 06.08.2018 (L- 90 / R-88 / W-87 / S-88) – after 2 near miss to score 20 points in English and 1 disastrous attempt I was not planning on quitting. I was determined to score 20 in English and wanted to beat the system and this pushed me to my limits: D well securing the invite was also a priority. Prepared for one month and wanted to secure the invite in August as I was confident on my preparations. I was expecting the results with couple of days but guess what, I got my results on 16.08.2018. Was upset on missing the august round but was happy to have cleared PTE.

Updated EOI – 16.08.2018 – 80 Points
Invite to Apply for Visa – 11.09.2018
Visa Lodged – 22.09.2018 (Had generated HAP ID’s before the invite as I was sure of the invite, but performed medicals post invite and results were uploaded by the panel clinic before lodging the Visa. This was as per the DHA rules. :D)
Waited waited waited .. then I saw few CO contacts for PCC for countries lived in for less than 60days. Started to run for PCC for one of the country for my wife. Luckily, we got it and many thanks to the help from my man Josey george who guided me with the process. Got the PCC and uploaded
Notification of incorrect answers – 13.11.2018
Notification of change in circumstance & Change in Address for wife- 04.12.2018
I have uploaded docs till December and there is no link to new docs uploaded and your grant .
Finally, so happy that I received my grant �� Cant contain my excitement and joy today.

I was and still completely overwhelmed by the positivity and amount of people who were wishing and rooting for my grant in this forum . You guys are my extended family :)

I am and will be here. Bandish , saifu, Vab , wrecker and few others who i really want to catch up sometime donw the line in near future :)

Cheers
Santhosh

Thanks for the response. I had contacted a MARA agent and he suggested me to update the form 80 also and attach it again. I have done that but my next concern is does it impact the processing time for my application?

I doubt it would unless the new info necessitates it, I used Immiaccount to update a minor error in my Form 1221 and I received an expected CO contact within present trends :)
