hi Everyone,
I just recieved an email from immi. I am not sure if i need to submit form 80 as i didn't submitted before.But this email as below seems a general email that told me it is in progress. I cut so many text in the email as too big.
Please advise.

Sounds like it is most likely a generic one.

Given that it is the first of the month, I get a feeling this is one of those generic emails to everyone that I have heard about. My partner submitted her application at the end of July 2015 so we are expecting at least another few months to go at least before we actually hear something.

I would say it means exactly as it says. Just that it has progressed in the queue (which you would hope it would have all this time already). I'd imagine it is to serve just as a reminder to make sure your documentation is uploaded. There is always the chance they could be looking at your application right now, but you can only really guess. Won't really know until they contact you.

I would add the form 80 if you have not done so. Make sure you have everything they ask for.

We originally didn't submit Form 80, but it was one of the things our Case Officer requested, so definitely wouldn't hurt to do it - saves time later if your CO decides they want it.

I never understand the reluctance for people to do form 80. Most people think of it as a wait and see if they want it.
So long as its a genuine application there is no such thing as too much information. It is marked as recommended so to save yourself time why wait until you are asked?

I agree Aussie83. I had to provide one several years back when I applied for a year-long tourist visa, so I knew it was annoying because of the amount of detail but not difficult or terribly time consuming. However, I felt it was better to frontload as much as I could rather than wait to hear from DIBP, then hear from them only to have to provide something else, then wait again.

I got that email too at some stage and it was generic.

I had already completed and submitted Form 80 so it didn't really apply to me - so I just ignored it. I believe I got this email in December 2013 and in June 2014 I got my approval for the application. I never did quite understand what that email had been good for.

From what I understood it doesn't tell you if you're actually missing anything or if your application was complete, it's just warning you that if you KNOW you didn't send some things right away, NOW is the time to do it.
