    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyones referees/references have been contacted via phone or letter by the ozzy visa bodies?

    If so what sort of questions did they ask your colleague?

    To the best of my knowledge, the visa people seem to trust that the information you have given is accurate, and therefore tend not to, on the whole, contact these people. However, random checks are done on some applications and if you have lied on this section, then the rest of the application is toothcombed.

     

    I know this is not what you were asking but thought I'd generalise a bit first.

     

    To answer your question, not a clue! Bet you are glad I replied at all really, :biglaugh:!!

    Hi,

     

    Nobody contacted George's referees (one was his current boss so he would have told him).

     

    That's all I can say really, maybe like Libby says they just do random checks.

     

    Not an awful lot of help, sorry:)

    Hi Mark, I sent off 5 different references , and no one checked up on them ! . Like you i used an agent, so i think they must take that into account. just send as much info as poss iam sure you can get a few ref's done? blind them with paper work like they do with us?. ATB Paul . roldx.gif

    Hi Mark

    Pauls employers were contacted by the Australian visa people, to check his reference and to see if he did do what he said he did at work. His boss said they were fine, but I suppose just doing their job, But as people have said it might only be random.

    good luck
