Photocopied certified copies

Hi guys,

I want to submit my 820 visa this week and I need to get two more things from my parents
- Their stat dec about us living with them
- A certified version of my long birth certificate

I dont really want to wait for them to get it all signed and post it as it sometimes takes up to 10 days.

Would it be ok for them to get them witnessed/certified in the UK and then scan them and send them to me, or do I need the actual copies? I know its a long shot and I would prob need the actual copies...

If you're in a hurry and don't mind paying a bit extra you can use someone like DHL, FedEx or UPS's door to door service. It should only take about 3 days to get from the UK to Aus but you'll have to pay a premium for it.

If time is an issue, I provide scanned copies, including a note that the certified or original hard copies will be provided asap.

Stat.Decs should be originals, any identification documents should be certified hard copies, not scans. All this may change when the system goes online...

Using a courier is always a good idea.
