were born in Australia you can just ignore this
question. If you were born anywhere else you need to
answer it. And it is the only time where what visa you
are on can make a difference.

you spent in Australia on a Tourist Visa doesn’t count.
Any other time, for example on a Student or Work Visa,
If you have lived in Australia for more than one period
you need to add them together for a total. But once it
totals 2 years you can just put number of years without
worrying about the months.

is required information when giving legal notice of your
intention to marry, you must answer it accurately.
