Application HELP for Koreans
NAMES HELP for KOREANS applying for Australian Visas
The Australian Visa is a LEGAL DOCUMENT and as such, if you submit false information, you MAY BE fined or even deported. Please read this info to help avoid both of these situations.
PLEASE ENTER the names in the application EXACTLY as they are shown in your passport.
Please make sure that you enter ALL of the names as listed in the passport.
If your name is Ms PARK AREUM HWAN you would enter the following in the application form.
성 / Surname: PARK
이름 / Given Names: AREUM HWAN
DO NOT ENTER TITLES such as Ms
*** Do not enter names in brackets and do not enter NEE (maiden) names in the SURNAME box (if applicant married and has changed her name).
IF the applicant is not married and has not changed her name, then enter their maiden name in the box.
NO TITLES - AT ALL
DO NOT PUT Titles such as any PRE titles (like as MR, MISS, MRS, DR etc), or any Post titles (Sn, Senior, Jn, Junior, II, III, IV, V etc). These are TITLES and NOT names.
The Australian Govt recently changed the online visa application process so that ALL Applicants are now legally required to also include the following information in their travel, holiday, visitor, business visa applications.
This new info for each applicant now includes:
- Other citizenship
- Personal Number (must now be included in your application)
- Criminal Record (Yes or No question)
- FULL Residential address (PO Boxes are not accepted)
- Alias (Yes or No question) including Maiden Name (if applicable)
Check to see IF the APPLICANT has EVER "legally" changed their name (such as for marriage) or any other reason. And IF THEY HAVE, please CHECK the YES in the ALIAS section (near the bottom of the page).
REMEMBER YOU MAY BE FINED FOR FALSE APPLICATIONS
PLEASE READ THE ABOVE BEFORE YOU APPLY TO AVOID BEING FINED
If you (for example) got married and changed your name, then you either got a divorce or remarried and changed your name again, then you would need to tick YES in the Alias section.
FINAL NOTE: If you have had any plastic surgery on your face, please make sure that you have updated your passport with the latest image before travelling.
