    From what you have posted, it looks as if you would be ok. May I suggest that you consult a registered migration agent for a fuls assessment of your case?

  5. Yes there is! It is at the discretion of the delegatge (case officer) and depends on the circumstanes of the case. If you find yourself with nothing better to do, you could phone the immgration 'help' line repeatedly over a few days and ask the same question and see how many different answers you get.

    From what you have posted, the strategy you propose, although possible, might not (probably would not) improve your circumstances. Take professional advice rom a registered migration agent.
  7. It might not fail if the OP, can find an MP who wants to trouser 10 or 20 K.
  8. It might pay you, and your employer, to take professional advice.

    309/100 appeal

    From what has been posted on this matter, it is entirely possible that the online system failed to retain documents that were uploaded. It is good practice for RMAs to periodically check what is showing as uploaded on the ImmiAccount and keep a record of it. In (rare) cases where i could not find evidence of document uploads online I have emailed them to the relavant office. In cases where it can be put beyond dispute that documents were lodged, a visa refusal decision can be vacated and a new decision made. Recently one of my colleagues had uploaded requested documents twice to his ImmiAccount and sent them three times by email. He then received a further request to provide the documents withing seven days, or else. The sponsor went to his local federal member, who happens to be the prime minister, with the evidence and a visa was granted the next day.
