i just checked it out as well, and they have to let you proceed because as it is with my partners kids, they have no passport, neither do any of my family, got 3/4 of the way through filling in a practice application and hit the wrong key on computer and lost it all lol, should have been saving every thing, will have to start all over, lol.

I just called DIBP.
They said if they are coloured scanned of the original then they don't need to be certified.
The police checks (originals) must be posted despite an online application.

Hope this helps all.

We know this feeling very well! Saving on every page is a must as the system can be quite unstable, especially during busier times.

Thanks for the update.

Interesting that they say the police checks still need to be posted, can't see the reasoning there. I think we may see a few of these details change in the next few weeks while the system settles.

Perhaps they need the original hard copy of the police checks to pass on to their external security/intelligence organisation. I don't imagine DIBP communicates through electronic means when it comes to security checks. Just speculation.

They allow scanned copies of the clearances on other visa applications (such as the 189/190), I thought they would do the same here. It makes it quite difficult to lodge a decision ready application if you're splitting it between electronic and mail, should just be one or the other.

That's true. I had the paperwork completed for a decision ready application December 9th came and thought the online application would be quicker for processing as it reduces the departments data entry time. But the form 80 isn't even there online and we have to mail in police checks - hope the reduced processing times are accurate.

Has anyone submitted the online application yet for 820/801? Did you receive acknowledgement letter straight away? Did the 'ImmiAccount' generate the letter, did you receive it boss email or post?

This is when you include all the documentation while filing the visa application. CO should be able to make a decision without having to ask applicant any more documents/information.

When applying onshore, applications that were fully complete with all necessary documents (i.e. decision ready), would receive faster processing.

Amandy, you can complete a form 80 and upload it with your other documents. In other visa classes the acknowledgement email is automatically sent so I would assume the same here.
