The Application Form

Posted on Dec 20, 2018 | 0 comments


Up until yesterday, I thought the most interesting part of Australian visa application forms were the character questions which include things like have you ever been: “charged with, or indicted for: genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, torture, slavery, or any other crime that is otherwise of a serious international concern?”; or “associated with an organisation engaged in violence or engaged in acts of violence (including war, insurgency, freedom fighting, terrorism, protest) either overseas or in Australia?”

Then I came across this question (which requires a yes/no answer) on the application form for a spouse visa: “Does the Applicant have any parents, siblings or children including those that are deceased?”….think about it.
