Yha - I am not so sure 28 days is actually weekdays. I woudln't chance it. I'd contact your CO right away and let them know your husband mailed the documents and you're still waiting on them (do you have proof of mailing or anything?) and that's what the holdup is.

If you don't respond or submit what they've asked for in 28 days they will often just deny the application. I wouldn't risk it.

I agree with this. Generally when any department gives you 28 days to respond they mean literally 4 full weeks (weekends included). It's only if they specifically state "28 working days" that you would exclude weekends.

I certainly wouldn't risk it and as CollegeGirl said, I'm sure you could email your CO and explain that your husband has provided the documents which are currently in transit to you and you intend to furnish your CO with the requested documents as soon as you receive them. If possible offer proof of your husband mailing them (receipt or tracking number etc).

Is Form 80 required?

Hi, can anyone advise if Form 80 is an absolute requirement?

We lodged our application online but the checklist for paper applicants we were given by the australian high commission didn't require it. So, given that the CO will be in the country of application (Vietnam), I'm wondering if we need to actually do it?

I'm thinking we'll fill it out anyway but if anyone knows what's normally the go with these, please let me know..

Edit: I should probably add, we haven't been notified of having a CO as yet otherwise I'd ask them.

Astro, I'd just go ahead and get it done. It's required in almost all countries these days, so better to do it than to have them delay your application's processing for 28 days after they've asked for it themselves.

Thanks CollegeGirl...ever the fountain of wisdom!

Would you also recommend organising the health check earlier (i.e. now) rather than later knowing that a decision is probably in excess of 6-8 months from now anyway? I seem to recall that conversation being had elsewhere on another thread, but I can't remember what the upshot was...
