Just submitted my 820 visa application, how long do I have to upload docs?

Hi,

I've just put through the application and paid via Bpay (which will take 1-2 days to clear), so my current status is showing awaiting payment, hopefully tomorrow(Friday)/next Monday I will have the status changed so I can start uploading documents.

However I will be on holidays for next week and half, and prefer not to bring my laptop with me.

Can I wait til the week I am back to start the uploads? Or is there a possibility that I get assigned by CO straight away, CO find out there is nothing uploaded and I get refused straight away + $8k wasted while I'm gone?

Alternatively if I have to bring a laptop due to strict timeline for uploading, as I don't have everything fully ready yet (for example our chat logs will need to be translated into English and collated into one single PDF etc.), even if I just upload some basic stuff such as proof of address/birth/passport/marriage etc, would that help at all?

I don't think you planned this very well.

You really should have all vital documentation in place and ready to be uploaded as soon as the application has been lodged.

Ii is unlikely that a case officer would assess the application straight away and refuse it, because of the lack of documentation, but it is not something I would ever advise.

I am assuming you have a valid visa to return to Australia after your holidays?

It took us about 3-4 weeks to get everything fully uploaded after payment and I wasn't stressed about it however, I am from the US and our average grants times are about a year. Until recently, RFIs and CO assignments were taking ~6+ months. Maybe you could try to upload as much as possible, just the basics in the event they do review it that quickly. Unless you're in an area without internet, personally I would take my lap top just in case they reach out. Or at least throw all your docs on a google drive or thumb drive so it you absolutely had to, you could go to an internet cafe?

One week or so, should not be a problem for some things, but try to get the main things uploaded as soon as possible.

Many people get requests for missing things, commonly referred to as an RFI. Not everyone uploads everything immediately, avoiding getting any RFI's.

I received two RFI's from the USA processing centre this week. One application was lodged 3 months ago, the other one 4 months ago. It seems they are speeding things up.

Why don't you just wait till all your documents are ready before applying/paying....?

I don't get it - You knew you were going on holiday, yet you submit and pay for the application knowing you didn't have documents ready? I wouldn't recommend leaving the application empty for sure.

Hopefully you have a visa to return and sorted a BVB. If you have a long time left on your current visa then it would have been better to wait those extra weeks and submitted when ready. As most people say the likely hood of hearing anything is tiny, but it still looks better when a case officer opens and sees you have done your homework. When we applied I didn't even think of going on holiday, I even took time off from work to gather all the evidence.
