Exclamation Whether VISA docs for upload need to be colored?

Hi,

I need to upload the certified copies of documents for Australian visa.

The original documents that i have are passport, educational degree documents and work experience related documents etc.

I had taken the black and white photo copy of all original documents and got the b/w photo copies certified and attested by a notary in India.

Wanted to know whether certified copies in black and white are valid and sufficient or do i need to take a color photo copy and then certify the color photo copies and upload the certified color copies of these documents?

We did both black & white as well as color. Never had a problem with either.

For uploading documents I normally used scanned colour copies ( not certified copies) of the original document.

Can I just verify whether a high quality colour photo of the document in colour would be acceptable? My fiance is finding it difficult to get access to a colour scanner.

Thanks

You should certify the document and black and white is sufficient.

I believe they are accepted equally so whichever you choose will be fine.

I would obviously recommend the coloured (uncertified) copies purely because of convenience and cost - no having to scan and print or photocopy documents, finding someone to certify them, annoy the the JP or notary with the sheer size of the pile of documents, come home and scan the certified copies.

We can tell I'm a naturally lazy person, right?

Hi!

I can't actually help you with your query since I don't know much about that visa specifically - my husband is applying for the 820 partner visa.

However, if you post your question on the thread titled "Ask Mark!" At the top of this forum, Mark Northam, who is a registered migration agent will almost certainly be able to advise you. You could also try posting your question in it's own thread where more people will see it

Good luck with your visa xxxx
