When I was much younger (12/13), my parents had applied on my behalf for admission to an Australian school. Apparently, my visa was initially not approved. It was later approved but by then the school had withdrawn my application.
There was no interview. I did not visit an embassy or visa processing center. There are no stamps, records, documents, refusal letters or memory to show if the visa application was actually processed for it to be refused. We don't even remember if the passport was submitted at all (we may have used an agent but simply don't remember that either). The visa that was approved (or was the decision changed?) has also not been stamped. How do I find out if I was actually refused or not?
I ask because some visa application forms ask for this information. There were no biometrics and I don't think I signed any form (I was a minor). I think it is quite ridiculous to ask for information on visa application forms that is more than 10 years old. If you miss something--you risk being flagged for lying.
