Online is better. Paper you need to have docs certified (ie. Birth certificate, passport etc) vs online where you just need to colour scan the original.

Also online when you get more evidence during the waiting period you can attach it where paper you need either post it in or wait for a case officer to be able to email it to them.

Also online you can apply even though you are still waiting on 888's or whatever where paper you should have everything ready to go when you post it.

Yes definitely apply online, it's much easier and much more convenient to upload all of your important documents. You won't have to pay for postage and you won't have to worry about important documents getting lost in the mail either. Plus it makes communication between you and the department much much faster.

I'm not saying you are wrong, but the online system is hardly safe from things getting "lost" either.

This, from the the 801 thread, just recently:

Application lodged: 28/10/2014
First auto-message regarding missing documents (ID of sponsor and applicant and statutory declaration from sponsor - it must have not uploaded correctly): 02/06/2015
Uploaded documents (Again): 12/06/2015



To me, this makes the online system qualify as a massive pain in the ass!

Well "lost" in this case being the physical document getting physically lost and potentially in other peoples' hands. Plus online you can just re-upload lost documents in a few seconds without paying for extra stamps At most a slight inconvenience.

That's my take on it. Registered mail is safe. The minor inconvenience of having the system tell you something has been successfully uploaded when in fact it has not becomes something more serious if the case officer never asks you for the missing part(s). Plus, I don't know about everyone else, but I spent a heap of time collecting and organising evidence and, even if most of the individual items aren't enough to make or break the grant, I didn't put it together for my own amusement! I want it looked at in its entirety.

YMMV, but people ask which way is better and I think there are pros and cons to both.

It'll depend on the individual person's preference. Given the two options and the pros/cons of each, I'd definitely go with an online application. If I was a DIBP officer, I'd much prefer to work on online applications as well.
