    Yes if you want to be on the safe side. They didn't ask for the hard copy of my birth certificate (many others reported the same). They did ask for my ID (I recalled that I used my Driver Licence, brought my Passport with me also). They also asked for my Medicare card and scanned it into their system. I'm also from Melbourne.

    I was in exactly the same situation, 1. You'll need 2 applications for you and your partner 2. You can use a same immiAccount for both applications. 3. Your child will need to be included in 1 application only, better be the main one (if you apply using your immiAccount, include him/her in your application, just easier if there's any following up or additional requirements) Apart from that, you'll need to mention in your partner's application that she/he has a child which is not in this application, but in another one. There's a section for that when you create the application. Also, if you're living together and both from a same address, it will be much easier. If not, preparing for additional custody documents.

    I need to correct myself! They did ask for my ID, I'm pretty sure that I used my Victoria Driver License, not sure about Passport, but those are standard IDs and should absolutely be carried to the Interview day. They also asked for my Medicare card, which they then scanned it and returned it to me.

    Don't worry about that. They will go through all your uploads on the day of your Interview. If you uploaded a high enough quality colour scan of your original birth certificate, that will be enough. I used the same scan for my Visa application 7 years ago, and for my Citizenship application, they didn't ask for any additional documents from me on my interview date. They may still ask for it, but it is very unlikely!

    Correct, I didn't get any notification when our applications were approved (the same was reported by many other users). I just checked my ImmiAccount daily and saw my applications changed to approved (I know, I was a bit impatient but who wasn't?!)

    So, both me and my wife have just received our Ceremony invitations today . Our timeline is below Application date: 23/12/2019, 2 applications: me with my 8yo son and my wife (First test appointment was around 05/2020 but was postponed due to Covid-19) Test dates: - For me 05/02/2021, approved on spot - For my wife 22/02/2021, approved on 03/03/2021 Ceremony invitations: today 14/04/2021 for ceremony on 18/05/2021 I have tried to send an email to Victoria's virtual ceremony after my wife's approval, but didn't receive any response at all... Application was in Melbourne VIC

    Yes, that what I did; which then enabled me to re-schedule to 20 days earlier than my initial appointment!

    On the same boat. My application was approved on 05/02/2021 (same day with my test) and my wife's test was on 22/02/2021 and her application was approved on 03/03/2021 Still waiting for our ceremony invitation. I used to live in Knox area , moved to Casey now

    No email at all. I've just logged into ImmiAccount to check almost daily...

    Finally, I've just checked my Immi Account and my wife's application was approved! Below is our timeline Application date: 23/12/2019 Test date: Me: 05/02/2021, approved same day My wife: 22/02/2021, approved 03/03/2021 Ceremony: waiting Really tempted to send VIC online ceremony an email... Should I?

    Nah, I rescheduled mine to 20 days earlier, and I rescheduled multiple times (say, 5 times, I know that's bad! keep checking back to see any sooner availability), got approved on spot. If you have colour-scanned and attached the original ones on Immi Account, they will probably not ask for any of those documents again.

    I guessed it's completely random and pure luck... My application was approved on the same day of my test. My wife took her test last Monday (22/02, 100%) and her application is not approved yet as of now... I would say her application was much less complicated than mine... I used to travel abroad a lot due to work, and I also included our 7yo with my applications...

    Haha, nice and positive way to look at it. I think (just my theory), that the approvals of applications are manual tasks, and since they have hundreds and thousands of applications they had to go through, sometimes they're just forgetful. If the one who has just checked all your documents did the approval, it would be very quick, since they've just done all the checks! Thumbs up is a good way to remind them that you've passed your test and they can do their approval! Initially my interviewer asked me to go to the computer room, but then another officer there asked me to wait outside cause they had to limit number of people inside. Then she just waved to me behind her glass screen, and when I came back to her booth, she told me that she'd let me do the test on her iPad there. So she just logged in for me and handed me her iPad. I finished my test in less than 5 minutes, 100%, then she told me that she approved my application and it would show up on Immi Account shortly
