I'm helping out a friend with DIAC application, he is Pakistani passport holder and he was born and raised in DUBAI , u.a.e. he studied in dubai and working in dubai also. he never lived in pakistan , only been there once for a short visit.

In this case, since he never lived in pakistan, will he skip the security checks ? Anyone know for sure, or any pakistani with a similar background went through the same ?

Or DIAC security checks are purely based on your passport rather than where you lived ?

appreciate it !

Everybody is subject to security checks. Anybody at all can be subject to extra checks including those who hold passports from high risk countries and even those with low risk passports who have spent a lot of time in high risk countries, served in the armed forces or with family members living in high risk countries! All on DIACS discretion who and why they check.

As he is holding green passport which is an emblem of HR country he would probably be put to extensive test.
