Question: Your address history for the last 10 years.

I am living in India.

I have lived in many temporary places[Like PG] due to my employment nature in the same city. But I don't have any address proof for the same. Moreover, my passport, aadhaar card and all other documents point to my permanent address in my hometown where my parents are staying for more than 20 years. How can I enter details in this section?

I have done short term overseas travels three times on business visa[But on Indian Payroll only] which I have not mentioned in ACS breakup. Do I need to suppress those oversees address details?
Follow the forms instructions closely - I think you meant Form 80 Qn 17 which states:

"Include:

addresses inside and outside Australia

places you resided for study/work

refugee camps

any other place you have resided such as share houses, university residences and temporary accommodation."

So yes, it includes places you resided for work, both inside and outside Australia (so overseas travel counts too).

I would not lie or 'supress' anything. This is a character assessment form that will be in departmental records presumably forever, and you don't want a lie to catch up with you.

I included lots of information for which I don't have any direct proof, but a state security/intelligence agency doing a background check would be easily be able to verify with their resources and networks.

Question: Have you travelled to any country other than Australia in the last 10 years?



I am living and working in India. I had done three international travel to Qatar on a business visa. I have not mentioned it in ACS breakup since I do not have payslips or any documents to prove the travel. Also, during the period I had received a salary in India only and my company did not transfer me to that location.



Do I need to mention those international travel details? If yes, should I mention the reason as Business? I have the visa stamping in the passport mentioning the date of entry and exit



Note: In the last 10 years, I had done a total of three travels with a total duration of stay of 7 months.
Of course you have to mention such international travel.

The form also asks for a reason, so yes the reason too.

I just want to express my feeling regarding the fairness of the grant between onshore and offshore applicants.



Not sure why DOHA does not have a sense of fairness towards onshore applicants who mostly have been here for more than 4 years. We, onshore applicants, have paid school fee, taxes, living expenses and contribute to the society by working legally but looks like DOHA does not care about it at all.



The reason i am saying this is by looking at the status offshore applicants seem to get faster grant than onshore but what have offshore applicants done to the society? Offshore have only paid for application fee and that's it. Moreover, offshore applicants often come with 2 or 3 family members and they arrive they will get full benefit of medicare while onshore applicants mostly applied solo or with a partner and have been paying for private insurance for years.



Some people can call me a jerk and talk about equality but to me, this is not fair that offshore and onshore applicants have the processing time. Onshore applicants should be prioritized.



Technically all student visa holders / 485'ers etc are genuine temporary entrants - so DHA naturally should not imho take any of what you have highlighted into account (uni fees for example).

Also, it depends on the visa subclass, 190 for example is generally far easier to qualify for if you're onshore.

We're also assuming there is a processing time difference between the two, I'm not sure, is there one really?

I understand you're venting, but private insurance premiums, I'm not sure how that is relevant, or the size of families.

A fact is that onshore applicants do have lots of privileges offshore applicants don't: access to bridging visa that allows work and study till a decision is made, access to medicare till a decision is made, review rights with the AAT.

I can empathise, but I think the onshore / offshore processing disparity, if any, is low on my list of things that need to change to make the GSM system better for Australia and its prospective migrants.

Hope you have a speedy grant

Hi Buddy,

I think you are referring to form 80 where again you need to provide previous address history.
Yes , You need to mention all the temperory addresses you have stayed in . You should not hide any information in your form 80/1221.
You permanent address in the forms will be your Address in passport .
You need not provide any proof of the temperory addresses and it will not be asked . You must not hide any information and CO uses this information to cross verify with the external checks if any to validate your claims .
Yes , you need to mention your international addresses too and mention overseas travel and if the stay was more than 3 months you may be asked for PCC too. They key in your passport number into their external check system they will get your information within seconds . So better disclose it

Cheers
Santhosh

Just a positive that it will give x months to upskill , learn new stuff to make one more saleable
Oh boy the HK PCC is so frustrating isn't it.

Not sure if it is worth shooting through an email to DHA's various inbox'ers to cajole that process along.

With the new global processing times.. Definitely is looking around that amount of time =/

Bro I have voters ID, AADHAR and the consultant has uploaded 10th under education.

Consultant told me the embassy birth certificate is sufficient.

My Bombay birth certificate has only middle name as my first name was not decided at that time. It also has my mom and dad's name.

What do you recommend? I don't have faith in the consultant.

If i were u , i would also upload the 10th crtificate crtificate under DOB proof . This has more postive results . Many ppl from the forum itself have succeeded with only 10th marks as DOB proof . i would not upload the Bombay BC cause it will for no reason cause a doubt in CO's head with the name . You can always give a cover letter stating name was not decided and things like that with this BC. but again if CO comes back asking for PCC with middle name and what not . You never know what they will ask for.
