The Australian Embassy in Egypt had a lengthy call with me, asking me for details such as office address, who did I report to, what were my duties, who reported to me, how was I hired ...etc. etc.

then they called those employers, had the same lengthy chat with the same questions, then they forwarded to them a copy of my letter of reference and asked them to verify it was issued by them as well as verify its contents.


The embassy employee was Egyptian, which means he knew the ins and outs of the culture, local laws and regulations ...etc.

When I googled him, turns out this is his SOLE job ..... his job is called "LEIO - Locally Engaged Integrity Officer" ..... they are trained on an Integrity course in Australia on how to verify references, documents. ...etc.



This is a message to anyone who is tempted to "pad" their documents a bit. You will end up with a refusal, losing your visa fees, and PIC 4020 ban between 3 and 10 years.

Bar diplomatic staff all staff within an overseas mission will be local people with citizenship of the host country. I've seen jobs advertised in London with the HC and they specifically state British Citizens only.

Definitely the way to have local knowledge of laws, customs, culture, procedures and how they will interlink with Australian visa rules.

referred my case to the embassy back home which tried to call two employers to verify, when they failed to reach them, called me to verify, asked me for contacts, then called, spoke to HR, sent them copies of my letters of reference, once they got an OK from both employers they relayed that back to DIBP, a week later I got my visa

What occupation had you applied for under visa?
Where your reference letters on Company Letterheads?

At times further interrogation is done at times especially for individuals from high risk countries

actually the main purpose to verify is the employment and designation but they also verify role and responsibilities in order to evaluate if you are eligible/fit for the post applied for.

Cheers
Dear All - I have received a kind of verification call around a month back from Aus High commission - India, till then there is no moment in my case.. I paid fee on 28th Sept and submitted complete set of docs in Nov mid 2015. Can anyone advise whats going on my case and anyone have similar status as mine?

Thanks in advance.
