ID documents for 309 scanned together

Hello,

We are family of 4 and we have little bit more Birth certificates, certified copies , passports etc.

As there is a limit of 500KB for ID document I have been able to make most of them small as 100KB now.

I do have kids birth certificates, their copies, passports etc. Can I make files of more than one of these ID documents as far it's not go over 500KB limit?

For example can I combine our daughter Certified copy of Birth Certificate plus their Birth certificate together and do the same for our son, or do all these ID certificates being lodged only individually? Would it create mess when naming the file, or would they reject it?

I am using Adobe, so most of our documents being combined together, highlighted and reduced sizes under the 5MB for normal files, under 500KB for ID documents.

I was reading couple of stories when people applied for 309 visa, but uploaded only one item /one sheet per upload and it created problem as they run out of uploads. There is I think 100 uploads for Main applicant and 60 for the sponsor. Couple years ago it was 60/60 .

So do I combine some ID documents in efforts to fit within the 160 files max or do I post them individually?

Thank you

Vicky

Why anyone without a dozen children and a similar number of divorces would seek to upload 100 files, or even 60, escapes me.

Most people combine a lot of things in one file, and might only do 20 or 30 uploads.
A few people upload individual photos etc and quickly hit the limit.

One file with all birth certificates, one with all passports, etc would keep the numbers down.

Add one PDF or Doc file with 20 or 30 photos with details, another with all the form 888s and you are up to 4 uploads so far. Someone who does everything individually might be at 70 or 80 uploads by that point.

I had 37 for stage 1 and will have 20 for stage 2. 100 seems like a bit much, but given that they've raised it from 60 to 100 in the two years since we applied means someone at one point or another has probably needed to use all 100

Hi,

I think I have found the problem for the file numbers.

I have been using Adobe most of the time, as it does good highlighting, it's easy to work with and I just assumed that the compress function is really good. As it was telling me it was compressed to the maximum file size So I ended up with a loooot of files.
Plus having to go back to 2014 with all evidence I just had too much files

Today I changed the PDF app Adobe for Smallpdf and most my files are now up to 80% smaller, so I may end up only with 30-40 files only too.

So it's maybe lesson to learn to not rely on one software but shop around.

We used Foxit and had no issues or complaints. Great for highlighting, merging files as well as reducing the overall size.

Vicky, Put yourself in the head of the Case Officer. What is the easiest way of the Case Officer assessing the documents? Separately clearly labeled files is the key.
