Arrow Sending new documents to case officer

Could anyone please let me know, if you are asked to submit new documents by the case officer, do you have to send these via mail or can you scan and email them?

I am talking specifically about stat dec that I think will have expired (over 6 weeks old) by the time they lodge our application and I am wondering if i should get these pre-emptively redone now and mailed or if in dealing with the CO are you able to email stuff?

Also if anyone has specific experience with the Berlin office I'd love to here that but experience from other offices is really welcome too.

Hi Melandabdul !
I don't know about the Stats Dec. But for the NOIM and my Birth certificate my CO allowed me to scan and send them as attachments.

In my case, we had them sent from Australia to Africa then i lodged them together with my full application.

One way is to ask your CO if you already have one.

If you lodge your application online, then I believe you can scan the document and upload it there. If the CO ask for an original document to be sent, then you have to send it through post/courier.

I guess the best option is to ask your CO on how he wants the document to be sent.

Thanks all for the info. I applied via paper and have not yet been assigned a case officer but I'm anticipating a possible request for new stat decs as I think they might JUST miss the 6 week timeframe by the time the embassy processes and puts out application in the system.

So I'm asking this question in the hope that we would be able to save a lot of time (and effort) by sending through new ones via scanned email rather than snai mail.

You input has been great usual!
