visitor Visa e600 online, DO I NEED TO CERTIFY DOCUMENTS?

after submitting my application I got this email and I am a little worried as my local visa agency said not to worry about verifying/certifying online documents.

but now I am unsure if I should have certified them?

this is form an auto-generated email that would usually apply to lodge 600 visa at the agency and they certify and scan on the spot.

I have noticed online applications nobody is certifying?

But just wanted to triple check while I have time to get them certified.

Thanks as always for the help

If they are colour scans, then no need to certify. You'd only need to certify if you are uploading black & white copies of a colour document.

Hi Trivara.

My advice? Get them certified then they can't query
It's called a "Certified True Copy" - just a rubber stamp

have applied for many security clearances with many government departments.
Even they are not consistent about the requirements for "Certified True Copies"
It's annoying but fortunately the list of certifiers is long.
From judges to police to bank managers to pharmacists
My pharmacist does it in exchange for a gold coin to charity donation
Others should be free

I agree with Maggie, No need to certify if they are colour scans for online applications.

In Australia is free but certifying can very expensive in certain countries.
In Canada for an example they charge $20 per stamp/signature to certify documents.
