These are the only changes?

Looks like I worried for nothing.

I imagine there will be additional changes in the actual application form. This is mainly a heads-up to people who are considering a paper application or who have a paper application in the mail which has not been received yet by the relevant processing centre.

Super nice of them to give enough notice that people can avoid mailing them to arrive after today. Ugh.

They never do. I imagine there will be hundreds, if not thousands, of invalid applications. Any paper application not received by close of business today will be invalid. If you need a bridging visa, you better get online very quickly.

Thank you for the updates, Nick.

Does this mean that the prediction of applications not having all evidence at time of lodgement can be refused isn't being implemented?

I wasn't sure where I stood with that as I haven't provided my medical nor police checks yet for my 820 application.

It is being implemented (apparently) where registered migration agents lodge “ bare bone” applications without supporting documentation. Not sure if the same lack of tolerance will be applied to the general public or the unregistered overseas operators. Unless something is done about processing times it would be pretty unfair to demand that police certificates and medicals are provided at time of application. That’s never been the case. The idea of “decision-ready” applications being prioritised went out of the window a long time ago.
