Hello people in the house... there is something that has been coming to mind lately and I have decided to seek for advice...

I resigned from my previous job this year Jan... went for a professional training between April and August this year... while applying for my VISA, I stated there that I had stopped working and currently just finished a training in August (I applied for VISA after that period)... now between August and Now, i have just been doing personal jobs...no official employment...

I am having a feeling that the DIBP could ask me for proof of employment or ask for what i have been up to since i resigned from my professional job in Jan...

Please guys, what is the best thing to say or do if that eventually comes up... NB: I submitted the certificate from the training along with my application... but what if they still ask for what I have been doing as the training wasnt a paid training... Please gurus in the house help...

You have been on a freelance.
If you get queried on how you have engaged yourself since the end of the training;
My suggestion is that you prepare a good statement to explain your reasons such as you decided not to take up another full time role cos you waiting on a visa. Hence you may want to include evidence of your freelance work such as transaction receipts, contract documents, work schedule.. etc. All depends on you mate. I was a freelancer prior to my departure and I had same thought but was never questioned even after preparing those documents. . .

Gurus kindly help out.

For me, If the training is inline with ur chosen course to which you're travelling to Aussie for, it will rather be an advantage.

So just keep calm and expect the best.

Meanwhile I am about submitting my visa app, but my passport na Virginia... Someone told me to go and collect ghana visa stamp which includes Togo and Benin too..

What do u all say....does ghana visa count?
Fake information don’t stress yourself you have nothing to worry about

We are now happily married both legally and traditionally and dibp has updated my details from miss to Mrs after filling form 1022 along with my marriage certificate to show them as evidence. Also, we just submitted his visa application so hopefully the visa should be out soon. I hope this info helps you.
Have a good day

You are on track. Did mine at the same period with yours. I really can't access my immi account cos i'm using an agent. But then, u r on track.
Re: General Australian Student Visa Enquiries Part 3 by Softkey(m): 5:23am On Dec 04
No cause for alarm.
Did mine a month ago and it's still showing that. There is notification immediately you logged in that addressed that already. It's somehow general so you're good to go.

Re: General Australian Student Visa Enquiries Part 3 by jiyde: 4:10pm On Dec 04
I think you can only do Medicals upfront... cos there is a document you'll have to take along with u for the biometrics that you cannot get without starting the VISA application process or so... cant rem... maybe someone with a better knowledge can help out...

Cheers...

Do u think not uploading court certified documents delays the decision on such applications?
Re: General Australian Student Visa Enquiries Part 3 by WestAfrican: 8:16pm On Dec 04
It is recommended you certify your documents by a Lawyer, justice of peace or of you are in Abuja, you may want to ring Australian High Commission to see if they do it. I suppose they may charge you more.

Certifying your documents gives your case officer one less stress to worry about how genuine your documents are.

OK..

But pls, since I have already submitted by application and paid, what can I do in this case..

Getting a lawyer to certify my documents won't be a problem cos my elder bro is one.

What do u advise I do, don't wanna leave any loop hole
