Also, I noticed that my status went from Initial Assessment to Further Assessment tonight, after I clicked the button at the bottom of the attachments page saying "I confirm I have provided information as requested"...Is this any indication of good news?


Here is a screenshot of all documents I've uploaded so far, and how I've presented it.
Can you suggest any other documents I should be uploading? It would be greatly appreciated. Should I do a form 80? I never did one for the 820...

Cheers

Good work, looks very neat

Now I feel more worried... My documents are definitely not enough

I can't seem to get the timeline thing right so will just write out what our situation is

Husband is from Tanzania - have been in a relationship for about 10 years - known each other for 22 years. Lived together in Tanzania for 12 months a couple of years before applying.

Applied for PMV in November 2014 - granted in June 2015
Married November 2015 in Australia
Applied 820 February 2016 - granted July 2016
Started online 801 application in July 2018 - not realising could have started in Feb!!
Dec 2018 - got email from Immi asking us to complete application (we were gathering info)
Jan 2019 - lodged 801 online - tried to make it as decision-ready as possible. Checked by visa agent prior to lodgement
February 7th - application status now as Further assessment

Our waiting times for both the PMV and the 820 were relatively short, so am hoping that we have the same kind of luck for the 801.

It is a very stressful process the 820/801 - the waiting and the uncertainty about the future. It is hard to make statements about the future when it is so up in the air!

Anyway just wanted to share

Have you tried to shrink the PDF. (pdfcompressor.com is one option or smallpdf.com/compress-pdf).
Ours came down to under 1Mb. (951kb)

However, I did have a problem uploading that, and ended up creating three .jpg images each with 6 pages in each image, using PAINT, and uploaded as 3 files.

Could do the same with a PDF split.

Your application looks good.

If you have joint bill i.e. electricity bills, water bills you can also add those.

Thanks guy. The pdf compressor worked magic. But I just found out that compressing a file is not allowed while lodging online applications. Has anyine ever done this before without having it rejected by the immigration?

I know that some people have done it, including myself.

Maybe some compressors are not done in the right way?

Which one did you use? Maybe worth trying another?

I used either smallpdf.com/compress-pdf or pdfcompressor.com last month, (not sure which I did in the end) and it uploaded OK.

I used the smallpdf and it worked perfectly. Just a slight difference but if you dont see the original, you cant distinguish between the two. Thanks Jand E. Much appreciated.
