SM3.5 Implications of providing false or misleading information
See also Immigration Act 2009 s 93
- The Immigration Act 2009 provides that:
- the provision of false or misleading information as part of an EOI or associated submission; or
- the withholding of relevant, potentially prejudicial information from an EOI or associated submission; or
- failure to advise an immigration officer of any fact or material change in circumstances that occurs after an EOI is notified that may affect a decision to invite the person to apply for a resident visa or to grant a resident visa;
is sufficient grounds for the decline of an application for a resident visa and for the holder of a resident visa granted under the Skilled Migrant Category to become liable for deportation.
- Information relating to a claim made in an EOI that is factually inaccurate and is relevant to the issuing of an invitation to apply or the assessment of a resident visa application, will be considered misleading unless the principal applicant can demonstrate that there is a reasonable basis for making that claim.
