Hi Chicken,

I'm afraid I don't know at the moment. It's rare that we get any information on changes until they've actually been made. Monday morning will probably be spent looking at the new system, working out the little details and seeing how it affects our clients.

If I was to guess I'd say it would probably be similar to the skilled migration system with a document upload portal and colour scanned copies accepted.

Thanks Adam. I guess we all wait with baited breathe. At least the bugs should be worked out by the time we lodge end march lol

I think some of the offshore applicants might have some hard time uploading documents. This probably will promote the business of overseas migration agents.

On the contrary, it should be a simpler process (which isn't so good for an agent business wise) and people should still have the option to apply via mail if they desire. If someone has thousands of dollars to put into a visa application I would dare say that they have access to a computer, scanner and internet connection.

Believe me, the DIBP do not want agents in the equation and a lot of the recent changes reflect that.

I think GBP has a valid point. Internet speeds and consistency are a major problem in some countries.

So is mail theft, having to chase for receipt of documents or updates to the application, offices being closed when an urgent application needs to be made, the cost of certifying documents......

I can't think of a single paper-based visa class that is run more efficiently than an online version

Hello Adam,

Do you have any direct link to DIBP official announcement regarding this? I tried to find on the immi.gov.au and could not find anything, google search for the text you provided also just leads to this thread or similar threads on other forums.

I don't, sorry. It was a direct (unclassified) email from the Principal Migration Officer at the Australian High Commission in London so I'm not even sure it has been officially announced yet.

There is an announcement saying changes are being made to the system this weekend, but it does not specify the changes: Changes to online lodgement services

The idea sounds great but I am just wondering how you present all your supporting documents when the file size is limited to 5mb per doc. I put all our evidence (screenshots, pictures etc) together in docs which I then converted to PDF and printed. Some of those files are >40 MB. If I was to upload all those docs separately now just to make use of the online application it would take forever. I was planning on sending everything off on Tuesday. Now here's a dilemma. Re-do everything online to be on the online system or send of by mail and maybe be last in line the old-fashioned way. Kinda wish I hadn't read this link now.
