Recommended Posts

I was using “Vivien” for alias name, but people from work spell this name with few variations like Vivian, vivienne etc. my linked in has been inactive for many years, my personal email has vivien in it, but CO was specific requesting to include Vivian (with ‘an’ but not ‘en’)as alias name. and I was using a agent so all correspondence goes in agent email instead of mine personal email. After all this, they stilled discovered me was using an alias name.🤔🤔

oh one thing forgot to say, my work email is with my legal name too. That alias name of my is really an unofficial name and buried deep down🙃

Strategies to buy time.

Hi guys, my case has been opened today, CO Sophorn is requesting a new AFP for main applicant to have alias name included in. This is very strange to me, because not a single document I submitted in showing this alias name of mine. I only use this name at work, just for in case of people having trouble to prounce my legal name right. Apparently CO somehow did a very good research and discovered I have been using this alias name. Ok then, I will be doing my 3rd AFP tonight, hope this is the last time I’m doing it.

Last week Sophorn has also requested me to get a new AFP that includes my ALIAS.

An ALIAS or ALIASES are names that a person is also known as or name(s) that a person currently uses or has been previously known as.

It could be a nickname, given name, middle name, Christian name, professional name, pet names or any names.

In my case, I was asked to exclude my middle name (mom's birth surname).

All the applicants (Primary or dependent/secondary) should be onshore while filing the 887 application. Once the application is filed then its OK to travel and also at the time of decision all the applicants should be onshore.

"at the time of decision all the applicants should be onshore"...…….how will one know when is the time of decision?

my timeline:

887 submitted on: 16/02/2018

02/2019: I updated AFP for both main applicant and secondary applicant when the old ones got expired

08/04/2019: first contact by CO requesting AFP with alias name

CO: Sophorn

 

CO Come to know that you have been known to different name by two ways..

1. any document you submitted in file that have different name from your passport( i.e birth certificate, driving license etc)

2. You inform them by answering question no. 4 in from 80.

Guys, what about Russian patronymic names? Should we order AFP certificates with patronymic names?

Wow, I’d like to say Sophorn is qualified to work as an FBI agent. Now many of us have new hassle to deal with... 🙂

"Minimum income job for 3 out of 5 years in new regional visas". Lucky all of us here were not bound to that.

I dont know they really want to improve the regional economy or not? Extremely hard to get a Pr now for a new visa. Nobody wants to apply.

I think the changes will not affect you because you already have 489 visa.

Hi,

My file has opened today.

Asked for updated Passport due expire on May and new AFP.

Applied on 15/02/2018.

Hi,

I need advice.

How Can I update my passport and AFP in my immi account? Just attach new updated documents in attachment option? 

How do I can notify my case officer that I have attached updated documents in my immi account?

Please advise.

Thanks

Yes I agree it should be like this, but I didn’t put the alias name in any of this documents. I only sign my legal name whenever it’s required. The alias it’s more like a nickname for those who can’t prounce my legal name right(I’m from Asian, some of us could have names with unusual pronunciation ). To ease the awkward I unusually say you can call me xxxx, then CO was asking to include one particular alias in AFP. In my case how CO discovered make me feel strange. I am guessing they may have contacted my workplace, because by looking at my files only it would not.

I suppose $18 an hour roughly.

Sometimes you think that it's the worst thing but the government says no and introduces something even worse 😤

Yes. I always use my patronymic anyway as my middle name, but some of my friends abandoned it long ago and made a mistake of not including in in AFP check. CO got back to them asking to repeat AFP to include patronymic. After all, it is in your birth certificate. 😉 🙂  So on my fiends certificate she has two lines:

Anna Lebedeva

Anna Vasilyevna Lebedeva

First one being current name and second "names known by previously"

I guess it could be in the payslip or contract of employment ,I just checked mine, payslip is fine it shows my legal name but the contract appeals the Alias name, apparently it makes sense coz I have included the Alias name in my resume, Geez! ain't it like a endless game?! I am better preparing for that. thanks for sharing this information.

Log into your immi account, got to "details" and find a menu on the left that says "update details". 🙂 It is easy. 🙂
