In order to assess your application our office requires you to send the following information:

Section 2

A signed statement of reasons, outlining why you are seeking release from your principal UC course

Section 3

If you are seeking release on compelling grounds, you must provide:

  1. Certified documentation demonstrating compelling grounds (e.g. medical certificates or psychologist reports etc.); and
  2. If requesting to relocate to another region or city, evidence that your family and/or friends are residing in another region or city (must be an official document i.e. drivers licence, electricity/gas account etc.), indicating address.

Please Note: Family members who are attached to your Visa who are not residing with you can not be considered under compelling grounds.
