Australian visa applications are serious business! At Down Under Visa we’re not just filling out routine paperwork. Your future and the future of your nearest and dearest hangs in the balance, and we know this very well. We may very well manage hundreds and hundreds of visa applications, but each one is like our baby. It matters! So we don’t treat mistakes lightly!
More often than not, mistakes happen through misunderstandings. You ask a question, and I answer. Hopefully you get it, but maybe you don’t quite. Over the phone it’s even worse. This is the reason why we insist on issues concerning your case be in writing, ie. by email! We receive the question, and we have time to consider it. And you have time to digest the answer. And we all have records we can check back on.
So don’t get offended when we ask you to email us! We are trying to avoid stuff-ups that could cost you dearly!
Which brings me onto another important issue. FRAUD! BOGUS DOCUMENTS!
Public Interest Criteria 4020 (aka PIC 4020) has been introduced to all family-stream visas on 1 July 2013. It means that a visa application will be refused if:
• False and fraudulent information and/or bogus documents are submitted as part of the current application, or any visas held in the previous 12 months.
• A visa application submitted 3 years (or less) ago was refused due to false information or bogus documents.
The will refuse an application if you supply any false information and documents! And if you are refused, it will sit on your record for 3 years!
So don’t do it! And for goodness sakes TALK to us, ie. EMAIL us! If you’re not sure about something, ask! You won’t get penalised by asking us. We’re on your side. Don’t try to slip it through. They’ve seen it all before. And they now have clear directions to refuse visa applications based on false documents or false information. We want to see your Australian visa application granted.
