Don't worry, you should be fine, the forms changed in November I think, if you had a valid application, you must have used the right forms.

I hope the JULY 2012 for 48R is the updated one (TOURIST visa) for this year as I am applying anytime this month.

Yup, happened to me too! They didn't accept our application because our forms were issued 07/12. There was a form change in 11/12. It is frustrating! Well, my fiance and I are to blamed because we started filling out the forms in August and finished in December without checking if there was any form update on the consulate website.

I nearly did the exact same thing. I printed the forms in July and was getting ready to submit them. I had made a mess of one page so reprinted just that one and noticed the page numbers were different... and then realized the forms were different! It was a lucky coincidence that I noticed because they new questions are applicable to our situation.

One tries to get all the papers done beforehand without stressing but it's impossible with them! Forms change, declarations and medical visits expire... I am applying for a defacto partner visa next April and I had already filled out the forms but now I have to wait for the new forms in April and fill them out again at the last minute. Thank you very much...

Think of it as practise,Marghe I had to redo most my forms in the last minute because of updated versions.
My aussie partner was litterally on his way to the post office to send off our relationship certificate to me in Sweden when I caught him and surprised him with the not so great news he needed to redo his sponsor form because they had updated it (on a saturday..not even a regular workday..) That slowed us down a bit..smail mail to Sweden is 10 days
The other day I got my medical forms as PDF´s in an e-mail from the panel doctor.
I had printed them out earlier from immis webpage but luckily I checked if the ones I had were the same as in the e-mail.
One of the forms the panel doctor attached was NOT the most recent updated version.. Ooops!
Glad I checked,I could have been in trouble there!
It´s the applicants responsability to bring the accurate forms. I´d hate having to redo my medicals at the heavy cost it is
You still have a couple of months until you lodge your application,use it to check and double check and make sure you´re on top of things.
In the end it´s our own responsability to do so.
"They" don´t think we have much else to do anyway,do they?
Best of luck!
