Hey guys.

My girlfriend has submitted her spouse visa application online, the first week of Jan 2014, we received an automated email and the cash was out of our account the second we submitted, but since then nothing has changed with the visa application. We will be calling immigration as soon as possible to see what is going on, it seems like a lot of other people are having issues as well with the online application.

My partner is from holland and lived in oz for 2 years and then we moved back to holland. For all our dutch documents she translated them(she worked as a translator in Australia) we used screen shots and cropped all our skype conversations, submitted our phone histories with each other, all the stat decs from family in holland was certified by a solicitor and was written in english as everyone in holland can speak english. Instead of uploading each single photo we wanted to submit, we made a word document with about 12 photos on it with a date and text about the photo, mainly big events - the night we met, our birthdays, celebrating christmas with family in Australia and Holland, holidays in Asia, Middle East and in europe as well.

We uploaded rental agreements from holland with an original version and then the translated version as well with a document my partner certifies that she translated it and the soliciter signed this off as well... Lucky the solicitor was free and a friend as we had quite a lot of documents to be signed.

I will keep everyone updated with our progress with the visa application.

Liam.

Hey Guys!

I was just wondering if coloured copies of scans would suffice as substantial evidence? Would it be reasonable to say that we don't need certified copies? For example,coloured copies of bank statements, birth certificates etc can be uploaded without certification? We filled out the online application, submitted both sponsor and partner forms and paid and are now in the process of uploading everything.

Any help would be appreciated!

Yes, coloured scans are fine and you do not need to certify documents if they are scanned in colour - it's one of the biggest perks of the online application in my opinion

Star Hunter, is that true of "official documents" like birth certs, marriage certs, etc., too? I'm sure it's in this thread somewhere but I've forgotten. I'm going to need that info in the next couple of months after I get married. PMV-to-820 app is totally going to be done online!

We were told by a migration agent here that we had a consult with, DIBP themselves (but we know what that's worth right? Lol) and one or two immi agents on this forum that colour scans don't need to be certified.

I will try and find some of the registered agents quotes for you. Obviously some people may feel more confident if they get their documents certified.

ETA: I'm pretty sure it was in the online application FAQ as well but they stated that original documents may need to be presented on request.

Medical checks still need to be originals sent in and not scanned copies.

Ah, found the thread I was looking for I hope this puts everyone's mind at ease a little.

http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...-issues-3.html

Top of page 3 has Adam Grey explaining that coloured scans mean certifying documents are no longer necessary. I also believe that CCMS has also stated that his office also provides coloured scans rather than certified documents but I'm still looking for that thread.

It has made our lives so much easier since we both had divorce decrees, I had previous wedding certificate and deed poll certificate (seriously why did my mum have to give me a "hippy" name? Lol) to verify all my previous names, my husband was adopted as a child by his step-father etc etc. This list of "official documents" that would normally require certification was a ridiculously large pile and I am sure we would not have been popular at the local JPs office

Hi guys can anyone tell what is eligibility date? Is that when you have applied for both 801 and 820 visa or when you got temporary visa granted ? Cheers

Ausboy, your "eligibility date" is the date you are eligible to be reassessed for permanent residency. This date is two years after you applied for your 820 visa.
