Proof of travel when no stamps (split)

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can anybody explain how I (the petitioner) am supposed to prove going to Australia if they do not give stamps? It is all electronic. I have made several trips and have most (not all) boarding passes. So it would be nice to prove by stamps (IMO passport stamps are the most solid piece of evidence there is and will give me some piece of mind during this stressful process). I see there is a movement records page for entering and exiting Australia, but it isn't as easy as an I94 where you can just type in your passport number and name and bam your record is immediately available online. The Australian "request for movement records" seems like a process and more precious time being wasted waiting for these records.

 

The abf.gov.au website states this:

 

"Where to submit the request Requests should be emailed to request.movement@homeaffairs.gov.au for records after 1981. If you are living overseas, send it to the closest Australian mission. These offices will arrange for your request to be processed. For international movement records before 1981, please contact the National Australian Archives www.naa.gov.au"

 

I am not living in Australia so I cannot email them. I don't even know what an Australian mission is...

 

Do the officers reviewing my I129F application have a way of knowing I indeed did go to Australia just from looking at copies of my blank passport pages that I'll be sending?

Hi, I would suggest you make a thread of your own just so your question can gain more traction.

If you have boarding passes, I honestly wouldn’t worry too much about passport stamps. I definitely wouldn’t send copies of blank passport pages, as they don’t prove anything. 

 

We didn’t send passport copies to show stamps, or boarding passes, just our flight bookings, showing the flights booked and paid for. Whilst this isn’t great, as doesn’t prove you’ve actually travelled, just that you’ve paid for flights, this, alongside 5 photos of us in different places, was enough for our petition to be approved without an RFE

 

I think you’ll be fine with boarding passes and flight booking confirmation for the flights you don’t have boarding passes for.

Apply for arrival and departure records with boarder control.. I got them for my travel to and from the states free online... I think in Australia though it’s a printable application form that you mail to them... link below.
