    Help anyone! Would like to seek your advice on answering this part of the Visitor Visa Application form! Maybe I'm just over thinking...

    #2. Do you intend to enter Australia on more than one occasion?

    () No
    () Yes - Give Details

    = What should be the answer for this? We need Multiple Entry Visa....but it is the Embassy's discretion whether to give you multiple or single. If I answer yes, what kind of detail shall I state?

    PART C # 17 Describe your intended principal business visitor activity in Australia.

    =How did you describe? you just stated that you'll be going to study the bridging program for ____ weeks (theoretical) and ____ weeks for clinical?

    # 20 Give details of how you will maintain yourself financially while you are in Australia

    = I will be financially maintained with the funds from my personal bank account worth ____ and will also be supported by my brother and grandfather.

    # 23 Do you intend to enter a hospital or a health care facility (including nursing homes) while in Australia?
    () No
    () Yes - Give details
    =the answer here is yes right? I mean, we will indeed enter a hospital or a health care facility while in Australia due to exposure depending on the clinical placements.

    #24 Do you intend to work as, or study to be a , a doctor, dentist, nurse or paramedic during your stay in Australia?
    ()No
    ()Yes - give details


    = the answer is yes right? We will study to be a registered nurse during our stay in Australia right? Or this is a no since we will just do a bridging program?

    Please correct me if I am wrong. I just want to double check. I am applying for the visa by myself and has no one to ask.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi, the answer to #2 is YES. You need to go back to follow up your registration with AHPRA. For #17, that is correct, you intend to enter Australia for your IRON Program. #20: e.g. "I have my personal funds as well as the financial support from my brother and grandfather, as conveyed in their Affidavit/s." For #23, I answered No. My understanding of the question is that "enter" would connote employment. I answered Yes to #24, as my intention is to undertake the program to be a registered nurse..

    Number 23, would be Yes, as well, would it not? you are going to enter, it does not say obtain work! It would be strange if your reason to enter Australia is to study to become an RN in Australia but not enter a nursing home or hospital. iMHO

    Did you do medicals, just out of interest? Was that for the old business visa?

    glad to be of help. although those are just insights into what i deem may be the best answer. you'll still have the last say when filling out your application, that's a risk we take by 'doing it by ourselves'. best of luck!

    Yes, You are right. This is the risk that I have to face. Not only am I risking the Application form answers, I am also risking the affidavit of support. I sure wish the Australian Embassy could answer questions as clearly as you guys. Whenever we call VIA center, they would answer us vaguely.

    what concerns do you have with the affidavit of support? Your lawyer would know what to put/write in the affidavit. all you need to do is to provide evidence (bank statement or income tax return copy of the person supporting you) affirming that indeed the person may be able to support your financial needs when in australia.. i believe the via center assists only with queries pertaining to filing your application and the like, but with regard to queries for appropriate answers in the forms those shall be on the applicant's lookout.
