ACS Application lodged - Some tips from my experience

Guys,

Finally made ACS online application just a few minutes ago. Had a tough time making online application. I don't know others experience but I constantly faced error "Connection Interrupted" several times. My internet was perfectly ok.

Earlier I tried 3 times on firefox but failed all the times. Then on internet explorer it worked. But even then I guess ACS does not like files bigger than 12MB. It failed twice in IE also.

Finally I reduced the resolution of scanned JPG's restricted all ZIP files below 5MB and only they it worked.

For other who are about to make an application may follow these tips

1. Use internet explorer. NO firefox.
2. Reduce the size of attachments.


One QUESTING to all you guys who already have made an application.

in the PDF file generated after application the ZIP file name of the attachment for educational qualifications were missing.

The PDF did show the correct file name for files uploaded in support of experience.

I am wondering why it did not show file names of files attached in support of qualification?? (I did re-check before submitting that the files are attached).

HAS this happened to anyone else??? Is there a problem with my attachment????


ALSO I paid by credit card but I did not get any payment confirmation message after submission???

I was expecting some message like "your payment is accepted/received...." etc ??? Why so?

Could it be just how ACS have their program configured as though it is normal when someone purchases something online you do get a receipt notification more or less immediately and then often a confirmatory email, but applications, be it to ACS or whomever are a little different.
And do not know what Immi do but in the case of the FBI I see people talking of getting a notification of payment or payment being taken from their credit cards weeks later and that then indicative of someone actually looking at the application.
In the case of the ACS they may have something of a preliminary step, a digital examination to confirm an application is considered complete enough to go into the queue for assessment before issuing something.

Hummm. I just hope there shouldn't be any problem with the payment.

Another question comes to my mind is when a CO is assigned can we send scanned documents to him later directly to his email so through some ACS system (for in case if we have missed out anything)???

If you're talking about an ACS assessment they may be more relaxed re late receipt of information though like with Immi expecting complete applications other than what they can request later like police/medical, both not applicable with ACS, I'd expect best chance of a successful assessment is also to not mess around with incomplete submissions.
