Hi, just wanted to ask if you already supplied all the police checks? Any new from the immigration?

My husband and I needed a combined total of six police checks. We submitted four when we lodged the application, and two we could not apply for until we got a letter from DHA requesting them. The police won't release them to us, but they were overnighted to Sydney yesterday so hopefully we will hear something soon! All our other paperwork was already submitted.

Hi all, is it worth trying to call the overseas number hotline for updates?

I've called the number with questions about mailing addresses and they have been quite helpful. The visa office in my country has not been helpful, but the overseas hotline has been more helpful. Wait times can be long, though, so I advise trying to call as soon as they open (9am UK time I believe).

I called the overseas number here from NZ, waiting time was like 45mins. I asked them regarding the status of my application, but all the immi officer could say was "ideally its 11-17 days, but its still a case to case basis" In my Immiaccount it says "Further assessment" so I don't know what's really going on. Did you say you had to ask for mailing addresses from the visa office? Did you send any docs by post?
Also If I may ask, did you uploaded certified copies of your docs or just scanned the original?

We unfortunately had to send the HK police checks by post, as the police here will not release the checks to the applicant and will only post them to the requesting authority. We did certified copies of most things (degrees, ID cards, marriage certificate, passports, lease). Police clearances from my understanding do not need to be certified copied so we just scanned and uploaded four of them, with the other two sent by post.

Have you had any RFI?

Now Im a little worried because I did not upload certified copies. Did it say anywhere on the website/application form that everything needs to be certified? Now I hope they would let me know if I need to send through again all certified copies.
Yes I had RFI, its a Japan Police check which took 6 weeks. I uploaded it last May 31.

There was a page that mentioned certified copies, but it was not clear about what exactly needs to be certified. I'm having trouble finding it on the Home Affairs website. I think it was the same page that mentioned translation of documents? When actually filling out the application on ImmiAccount, it did specify that National ID card copies needed to be certified. Might be worth calling and asking? But now that I checked, the TSS Document checklist (https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas...documents.aspx) now just says:


To lodge a complete application, you should attach scanned copies of any associated original documents through your ImmiAccount as part of the online application process. Documents not in English must be accompanied by accredited English translations.

Hi..you better check with your agent....I had applied my 482 subsequent on April 4 and received the visa on 4th June...

What makes me so frustrated is that the agent told me there is nothing we can do at this stage.
