Hi guys so I am still in the process of submitting my additional requested documents - the other day my status said: requested documents. My medical results have been submitted to IMMI but I’m still waiting for my police clearance. But today when I logged on to immi the status know shows as “Inital assessment” what does This mean? Why is it saying this when I have no yet added my requested documents (the 28 days is still not up I’m only 12 days in)

It's just a new stage of processing that has been added since the March 2nd (or 3rd?) immi system update. It essentially means your application has been looked at and gone through the first stage of review. You still have to upload the requested info, and then you will eventually go onto the second stage of review which is "Further Assessment" (aka Assessment in Progress)

I got requested the further information a few months ago and I submitted it a month ago. My status is still received.

Oh ok phew! I just freaked out that the status had changed and I hadn't uploaded my requested docs yet. Do you think it would be beneficial for me to upload my AFP receipt to immi just to show them that it has been acioned but no certificate just yet.?

You should attach them. There is a section to attach the receipt

I would, just to let them know I was doing what they requested.

I would assume that the receipt of your medical results has changed your status to "Initial assessment".

Is it your AFP you're waiting for? We received our's in the mail in Sydney 2 business days after we applied for the AFP online. If you're still waiting 10 days later, you should call the AFP. Get them to send ASAP (or re-send).

And yes, I'd upload the receipt to Immigration after 10 days of waiting. There's a spot in the uploading for proof of request. We actually didn't upload the proof of request. We only wanted to upload when we were ready because we wanted the first time the case officer went in to see everything they requested, not a receipt. If we had to wait 10 days though (instead of 2), we would've uploaded our receipt I think.

Good luck :)

Yep it's my AFP we're still waiting for. I got the email after 3 days saying It's approved and being posted in the next buisness day but my partner hasn't even received an email yet? It's been 10 days I called yesterday and they said it's "prossesing" I wander if I can ask them to do it ASAP as thats the only document I need to submit before I'm completely finish ahhhh!!

If it makes you feel better, my status never changed from that and then I got the grant. I never had to supply more info though.
That actually does make me feel better, Sky. Haha. I front loaded, too. So here's hoping that's all they need.

You gotta wait longer...

Aside from "submitted" "information requested" and "finalised" the status of an application rarely means anything in terms of processing, so I wouldn't worry at all. This "Initial" and "Further" Assessment status update is new, so it might not have been employed for everyone yet either, for all you know you can be close to receiving a grant! :)

To OP, I believe it's normal to wait up to two weeks for an AFP check. I wouldn't worry if you've been waiting 10 days, you'll probably yet it soon! In the meantime, like others have said, you should be fine if you upload your receipts.

Doesn't matter as long as they know that you've attempted to do so and are just waiting on it. If you've already notified them, then just upload it when you get it. They won't refuse your visa because you didn't get it uploaded in that timeframe when you made an effort to do so.

Oh I didn't know that was the case! I've uploaded receipts to immi so that's enough to show them I've made the effort to do so right?

Receipts show you've applied and paid for the application for a police check so yes, they can see that you have responded to their request within the time frame.

Hi,
I have a concern regarding my visa request status. I have received an email to apload my kids school arrangement as it was missed. I have put that document before 4 days. Still my status is “ initial assessment “

Is that ok or there is something to be done from my side ...

I have sent them many emails but there is no respons from their side
