First of all it is difficult to comment on online applications re what may have happened because of lack of access.

With a paper application, though it does not specifically say so, I'd suspect that the applicant would need to have the sponsor form supplied to him by the sponsor to include with the application.

Also, the online applications have a save function and did you by any chance save your application awaiting the sponsor form to upload or did you give your ID/password to your brother for him to upload it - two questions!

1. For if you actually lodge your application rather than saved it online, it may not allow you to add further documents.

2. It could also be that on you opening an application, you're allocated an ID but your email address may also be recognised and if your brother was trying to upload from another email address, it may not accept.

But either way, sounds like you need to contact Immi to see if you can sort it out.
Contact Us - Department of Immigration and Citizenship

Hard to say with you Sutha because of lack of info but best for you also to contact Immi re a technical issue such as this.

thanks a lot for ur concern sir.
actually its not like that.actually when u r done with applying and get a reference no.u have 28 days to upload whatever document u have to strengthen ur application...
2ndly applying for visa and applying to sponsor someone are exactly two separate application and applicant are different in both cases.
I have concluded after talking to DIAC that problem is from their side
(some system fault)and they say u can try after sometime...
in case online system doesn`t work.my sponsor can simply email the scanned document and that will be added to my file or i think i can upload under"others"from my side as well...

It could be some issue with his passport data in the System. yup, I am planing to upload the scan copy, you may asked him to check his passport authority.

I encountered the same error when my sponsor filled up online application. So, I logged in and tested. It appeared that when you changed the sponsor DOB to <=60 years old the application doesn't throw any error. I'm not even aware that there is such requirement!!! My relative who sponsored me just turned 61 four days ago. O boy...let's see Immigration Officer explanation on that.

hi there,
the problem, i guess, will be with the visa number
tell your brother not to fill the visa number and press next.
the system will continue.
try this and tell me if it works.
don't worry about the visa number it is optional not mandatory.
and i am sure you attached your brother's visa stamp page with your application.

best regards
