Talking Now for an online application.....

Hey guys!

Anyone know if there are any tricks to doing the online application?

Two question:

1. At what point do you upload the documents they need, is it at the end of the process?

2. How do you get around the certified document requirements, do you simply get them certified and upload them, i.e. so they dont need the orignal certified documents?

3. where there any tough questions you battled to answer?


Help!

Hi ch,

I've got no knowledge of tricks or pitfalls really and you may have already read
http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...sponsored.html

I had that thread open a while and was doing something else and so by time I finished post, cjawadz had already been back and had contacted Immi which is what I was suggesting as he seemed to have a problem.

It surprises me what he says for as far as I know as per the web site instructions you can open an application and save it while you upload your documents and that to me makes more sense than actually lodging the application and then Immi giving you 28 days from then as it kind of defeats the whole purpose of Immi's preference for online applications with they being streamlined and paperless, running counter to a paper application where there's not too much slack given re not having your application complete.

Something I'll check with Immi myself next week.

Meanwhile, for actual uploading - Attaching Documents to an eVisa Application may help but again I've not been into it.

Thanks Buddy

You are correct about the saving as you go approach which is what I have been doing. I have completed about a third so far as I gather info, but not knowing what waits around the corner is a little unsettling. I just hope once I have finally completed the online it will be 100% without any guesswork.

Please let me know what you find. Any info would be very welcome. I see there are some similar threads below. Am going to check them out...

Hi again ch,
As to what's around the corner, I reckon the order of information to be put in will not be all that dissimilar to a paper application and if you have a look at the paper Checklist it could be used as something of a guide and in fact I think there are some words to that effect on page from which Checklist is linked.

I'll let you know if I get anything of value from Immi.

Cheers and good luck.

Online Application

Hi CrazyHorse,

I thought maybe I could assist with 2 of your questions:

1. All documentation is uploaded at the end of your online application. Once your application is completed, you will need to 'Lodge and Pay' for the application. Following lodgment there will be an option to Upload your Documents - unfortunately you cannot submit your supporting documents until you have a Transaction Reference Number (TRN).

2. Uploading the original document or a certified copy will be the same to DIAC, as a certification on a copy is only considered valid if it is the original certified copy. This means that an uploaded certified copy will be no different to DIAC as an uploaded photocopy of the original. All in all, it is fine to initially upload plain copies of your original documents. If DIAC requires certifies copies or originals to verify the validity of any of your documents, they will request these to be posted to your case officer when assessing your application.

I hope this was helpful, let me know if you have any more specific questions.

Hi

Heres one that has me stumped: the online asked me to indicate what level of english ability my spouse has, I put down proficient. Her english is better than mine and I scored a 8.5 on the IELTS!

BUT..

I havent bothered getting her to do the IELTS as I dont need the extra points. I am not sure if they will ask for proof of her ability somewhere down the line? I just dont want the application to be delayed because of a formality in providing proof of something I dont need.

Any ideas as to what I should do?

Hi Crazyhorse,
To submit a 'valid' application, you as the primary applicant will be required to submit your IELTS results upfront with your online your application. Your spouse will later also be asked to submit evidence of functional English, however this does not need to be submitted until your case officer requests it (before visa grant).

It is not a REQUIREMENT for the secondary applicant to submit proof of functional English, however if you do not submit this you will be charged a 2nd installment visa fee of $3,510. (This extra cost is to prepay for English language tuition in Australia to help applicants with less that functional English in hopes of improving their language skills).

Obviously you do not want to be charged this expensive 2nd installment, because you say your spouse has proficient English. So if English is not her 1st language, she must provide one of the following to satisfy the DIAC request:

• IELTS results to show she has received a band score of at least 4.5 based on all four components. (If you will be submitting an IELTS test to show functional English, it must be no more than 12 months old).

•Evidence that she has a degree, diploma or trade qualification requiring at least two 2 years of full time study or training with all instruction conducted in English.

•Evidence that she has completed at least 1 year of full time study in Australia towards a degree or diploma qualification with all instruction conducted in English.

•Evidence that she has completed one of the following at an educational institution where all instruction was conducted in English:
◦ primary education and at least 3 years of secondary education, or
◦ least 5 years of secondary education.

Let me know if you need more clarification.
