    Submission of documents to ACS

    I've asked the following question before but not had a clear answer (probably because it was buried in the middle of other questions and got overlooked) so can anyone help please? I am aware that DIAC will accept scanned colour copies of documents in lieu of certified copies but do the ACS do likewise? E.g. scanned colour copy of degree certificate, birth certificate, passport etc. Or do you still need to get such things certified for ACS? Thanks Gary

Copies of Skype communication (during time apart) - ? 12. Stac decs/ passport copies from 2 x AUS citizens (in AUS) - witnessed and certified 13. Stat decs / passport copies from 2 x Aus citizens (in UK) - witnessed - do these need to be certified? 14.

    eVisa 176 Documents

    Hi Guys, can anyone help please? I'm just going through the application for our 176 visa and I think I have managed to get through it slowly. :embarrassed: I'm now at the payment page and it hasn't asked me to attach any documents, is this normal? Do they ask you to attach after the payment? Also reading through the Application Document Checklist it asks for certified copies, I think I have read somewhere that if they are colour then they don't need to be certified, but it doesn't say that on the checklist, again it may say once I have made the payment, but I don't want to make the payment yet if I have missed something. Any help would be appreciated.:notworthy: Thanks Dawn xxx:wubclub:

    Who can certify your documents?

    Hi all :wubclub: I am currently filling in my Daughters child visa application & am unsure who I use to certify her birth certificate etc? :unsure:
  6. Hi I have recently lodged my 176 visa online. I am just wondering if solicitors can certify documents? The reason i ask is that i currently have 2 different answers. The email i received from DIAC when i applied for my visa states that: If the copy is certified outside Australia: - a person who is the equivalent of a Justice of the Peace or Commissioner for Declarations in that place; or - a registered migration agent (whose registration is not suspended or subject to a caution). However on the Australia High Commission website it states: Certification of documents The table below lists professions that can certify documents in the UK and Ireland. Only documents certified by these professions will be accepted. Australian Terminology - UK Practicing lawyer(AU) - Solicitor(UK) Magistrate(AU) - Magistrate(UK) Public notary(AU) - Notary public(UK) Justice of the peace(AU) - Justice of the peace(UK) Position/agency recognised by the law of the country to certify documents(AU) - Officer of a Court appointed by a Judge to take affidavits(UK) I had most of my documents certified last year by a justice of the peace at the local court, for documents to be sent to the ANMC. The documents that currently need to be certified are my husbands full birth certificate, his passport bio page, my positive skills assessment and my IELTS test report. Hope someone can help.

    attaching documents

    hi everyone just wondering if anyone knows whether you are supposed to upload a cope of a passport picture, or if you are supposed to post one - I seem to be uploading documents during their downtime and so can't access the info on what your supposed to do fro the checklist. I'm too excited to go to sleep, just want to upload all possible docs (ones in colour) - they have my money now - woohoo! x
  8. I have started this tread to get a basic idea for Additional documents that required by DIAC. I think we should know what documents else do DIAC require for completing the processing. In some countries it is tough to arrange some documents within a week or two. So apart from the common documents that CO asked for like Medical & PCC, if we know what type of additional documents CO may ask we can surely expedite out file processing. A number of time I saw that those who got CO they mentioned “CO asked for some additional documents”. It would be better for us if we know what those documents are? I know it may vary from case to case even then it will help a lot for PIO member. It will be highly appreciable those who have got CO and those who have their visa granted can share their experience related to additional documents to PIO. Also if you know please mention the reason for asking the document by CO. I will List down all the additional documents name on this front page of this tread based on the reply. From PIO treads I saw CO asked for Bank Statement. But I don’t know for which visa category and for what reason CO asked for it. Additional Documents List Bank Statement - is Used as a proof of genuine work Experience (i.e: Genuine Salary Slip)... ………………………… Thanks & Regards Joy
  9. Hi to all, This is just a quick one, We have put our move to Oz on hold for a while as not right time to go this year. Exchange rate being the biggest reason for now and a few other problems, but we will get there in the end!! My question is: All the documents that i have had stamped/dated/signed by a Justice of the Peace in Nov 2010, i've got a few more to get done too, will they be accepted if we post O/H Spouse visa application in June. I'm hoping that a case officer will accept them and not make us get them done again. I'm not aware that documents have an expiry date once they are stamped??? I appreciate any comments received, thank you.:wubclub:

  14. Hi everyone Just a quick question for you all. We sent the hard copies of all our required documents to ACT (after doing the initial application online) last Friday (19th November) via Royal Mail Internation Signed for. We've tried checking the Track and Trace code and it hasn't confirmed that it has been received by ACT yet. We were just wondering what other people's experiences have been like, and how long it took between sending the documents and ACT confirming that they have received them. Thanks in advance for your help Natalie

  23. please help me before i go totally mad!!!!! Sorry to be such a pain. I am at present scouring the house for documents to support my husbands application for spouse visa. I have so far found: Building Society info from sale of our last house (shows joint names but old address) It's a redemption statement. 2009 mortgage statement (in both names) Current partners car insurance certificate, showing me as named driver My car insurance has been renewed today so documents in post in 5 days, cartificate will show husband as named driver. Current bank statement showing joint names. Forgive me if i seem not with it, but am i barking up the wrong tree here? Do all these documents have to be in joint names, current address etc.... I'm a bit confused as to weather immigration want to see this as evidence that we are in an ongoing relationship (married 8 years) together for 16, 1 biological child age 6. Can i photocopy these papers or are they not accepted? My son hasnt got passport now as it's expired, so need to get his oz one very soon. He is a citizen. Not sure what other documents i could send-any preferences please anyone? Thanks so much!:err:
