Hi all,

I am preparing my documents for the 801 application (eligibility date 31st May 2018).
Just wondering - do I provide evidence from after the grant of my 820 visa (April 2017) or from my initial submission date (May 31st 2016).
E.g do I need to upload joint bank statements from 2016, or just from 2017 onwards (after the 820 grant)

Also, is it okay to start uploading documents now, or should I wait until after May 31st?

Thank you!

Have a read through Step 5 and sublinks. The calculator takes you to required documents as well.

"You will need to provide evidence to show that you and your sponsor continue to be in a spouse or de facto partner relationship since you were granted the temporary Partner visa. "

I don't see a point in uploading early as they won't assess it early. The online form also asks if it's been 24 months since application so technically if you're early you'd have to answer "No" which doesn't allow you to proceed.

Did you certify your marriage certificate or there was no need for that?

Yes I did, for 820. That was before I knew that you don’t actually need to certify documents with an online application. Refer here https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/Trav/...ng-online.aspx.

I did not certify subsequent documents, such as my recently renewed passport.

You do not need to certify original colour scans of documents.

One would think they've had an issue with doctored documents in the past? But even still, if someone can digitally alter an original copy, what's stopping them from digitally doctoring a copy of an original? Seems pointless to me.

For all other countries though, the only reason certified documents were needed before was for paper applications. You obviously wouldn't send in your original birth certificate, passport, court documents, etc via post to immigration! So you had to go and get copies that were certified as true copies of the original documents. It makes no sense to upload a certified copy of a document when applying online when you can just upload a clear color scan of an original document. Not sure why people that are applying online think it's better to upload certified copies of documents when even the immigration website says not to do so when applying online (obviously Singapore may have been the exception).

Only know because I gave the same info to a person onshore that was going to Singapore to apply offshore.

They were then contacted for certified copies - not real cheap in Singapore they "informed" me and they had the free option of certification before leaving Australia.

This was confirmed by another Singapore applicant, so I just bring it up now and then.

Guess Singapore Case Officers have relatives that offer their paid certification service.

Also a Case Officer at any location can request a document to be certified and re submitted.

We are in the process of preparing evidence for 801. The time between the grant of the temporary partner visa to now has only been 6 months. Will it be sufficient to only provide evidence from these 6 months or should I add some extra from before this time?

We are in a long term continuing relationship but it feels like we are not submitting much evidence compared to when we did the 820.

Thanks
