Exclamation Payment & Lodgement in person (Sydney) for visa 820/801

Hey everyone,

My partner and I are going later today to the Sydney Office to submit our 820/801 visa application.

Can we pay in person? Or do we need to? Does it speed up the process? If we do (most likely by credit card), what do we then do with "Part M" (Visa Payment) of the 47SP form? Do we leave it blank? Or de we fill it out beforehand with the same card details?

Anything else important to know about lodging it in person at Sydney Office? Anyone else done this before? Hope it goes well, im so nervous about it, its like there's no end to it and i just want it to be perfect! oh well, done my best to put in as much as i can...

wish us luck!!!
