Additional documentation taken to interview

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all VJ's! I'm preparing my trip to Sydney to attend my husbands immigration interview on June 12th. Yaaayy! :dance: . I have an accordian style binder that measures about 4 inches thick containing additional documentation, emails, photos, receipts, tax returns, invitation letter, etc that I plan to take to the interview with us. My question is: do my documents need to fit thru a window at the consulate? Is there a size limitation on the documents I take with us? Your help is much appreciated!! Thank you.

Just remember to carry it with you and not put in checked baggage.

Enjoy the trip and good luck at the interview.

Nope...no restrictions on how much evidence you can take. In all likely hood they probably will not look at it anyway (Sydney is pretty easy in most cases...although....if I remember correctly, your husband is not an Australian citizen, but has a valid visa to be in Australia...apologies if I'm wrong on that part....but if I'm right it may make them look a little more closely at your case).

You wont be allowed to take bags and such up to the actual consulate. You have to go through a security checkpoint on Level 10 (if my memory serves me correctly lol), much like airport security (bags through scanner, you through metal detector). Then you leave your bag with them and they will give you a slip for collection of it when you come back down. You're only allowed to take your wallet/purse and your documents up with you (no phone either I dont think - again ...if memory serves lol).

Good luck for the interview :thumbs:
