This is one of the questions our clients stress about after lodging their applications.
Generally, it is unusual to be asked by the Department of Home Affairs to attend an interview, thank goodness! Knowing this, you can probably relax. However, that is not to say it does not happen occasionally. As we tell all of the couples we look after, if you are requested to attend an interview – it’s an opportunity to talk about the one thing you know the most about… your love!
There are some applications that are flagged as ‘high risk’ by the Department. They may have also received information about the case which they would like to clarify with you in person. The request for interview is mainly based on the information they have at hand.
In all likelihood, you and your partner will be asked to attend an interview before your application can be progressed any further. As with all applications, it is SUPER important to have all your required documentation in order.
