HI there thanks for sharing your experience!
We were just told by the processing office to send thru the evidence by email instead too. We have like in total over 80MG worth of document *unzipped, uncomposed though. They want each email under 5MG. This is making me go insane. Your case sounds like a lucky one, it didn't take much at all for the grant!!!!!!

I'd suggest first trying to compress your pdf files, as they do not accept zip files, if I'm not mistaken. You can just do a google search for "pdf compressor" and there are several that are free, online compressors. That is what I used to compress my pdf files that were over 5MB. You may need to send a few separate emails, to meet the 5MB limit on each email. Or do you mean 5MB per file? Regardless, give the compressor a try and see how small you can get your files down to. Good luck!

Oh my it will be so many emails and I really hate to do this. Why cant the tech support fix it!?
Hi Daisy,

I am not sure if you have lots of scanned documents and photos, but if you do, before converting them into a pdf file, try to resize them and then create pdf.
You can also do this in MSword by going to File -> Reduce full size -> Picture Quality -> Best for sending an email. And then just save that file as a pdf.
I don't know if this helps but I hope you will find a way to send all the required documents. Best of luck

Quick question folks:

When you email your CO or the team that is processing your 820 visa, do you get any type of response back that they have received your email? Asking because I was asked for some information from the Vic Partner Visa team and I emailed them, as requested. But I haven't received anything back and it has been about 2 weeks. I want to ensure they received the email.

Thanks in advance!

Just having a panic...

With my 820 visa which I applied for last January we submitted two 888s, one from my father-in-law and one from my brother-in-law. We also submitted two statements from non-Australians, one from my dad and one from my best friend.

I'm just panicking now that this isn't enough. Most of our close friends aren't Australian citizens or don't live in Australia and anyone else we would ask would be more members of my husband's family. Getting the ones we have was like pulling teeth and my husband's really not good at asking for them.

The requirement is two. With all our other evidence (which there is tons of) will this be enough?

I don't have the list in front of me, but as a rough guide we have submitted:

Statements from two joint bank accounts
Letter showing me as an cardholder on his credit card
Joint bills
All bills going out of joint account (including personal phones)
All expenses going out of our joint account (I don't have another one in Australia)
Correspondence with our wedding venue and registrar
Letters we wrote to each other
Post my family has sent us
Birthday cards and Christmas cards from each other and family and friends
Wedding cards
Engagement cards
New house cards
Evidence of joint travel (tickets & hotels) including trips around Australia, Europe and our honeymoon
Marriage certificate
Photos of travel, family occasions, us in different locations (Mont Blanc, Uluru, Sydney etc), our wedding
Super beneficiary
Emergency contact

I'm probably missing some stuff but you get the idea.

If you have good evidence I would not worry too much at this late stage, it is a requirement that they be Australians but don't have to live here.

That, I am well aware of. Just having a bit of a stress over it. Don't need to give any excuse to DIBP not to accept everything and approve our visa evidences, etc.

Maybe resend the email and ask for confirmation of receipt? If you send it with outlook you can ask for a "receipt" when the email has been read. You might be able to do that with Hotmail and gmail as well?
