lodge de factor subclass 820/801 by email or in person ???

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, my partner and i are 3 weeks from lodging our subclass 820/801 defactor visa. We are wondering which is the best way to lodge it, do we go and lodge at Brisbane in person? or should we do it electronically?. Anybody who has any hints or tips on this that would be awesome?,I am also a little confused as if we lodge application in person do we have to take originals or photocopies of evidence?.

thanks :)

Lodge the application online and upload all documents electronically. If you do it that way, you can simply upload colour scans of original documents and will not need to have them certified. Online applications are easier, faster and more secure for you and DIBP.

 

If you decide (unwisely) to lodge a paper application, you must submit certified copies of all documents and should take note of the following advice from a DIBP Case Officer who emailed another applicant:

 

How Should I Put My Application Together?

Please do not make complex collations of your application papers. We waste a lot of time (and risk injury to life and limb) deconstructing applications which have been extensively stapled or artfully put together in complex folders with indexes, dividers and tabs. Do not use plastic inserts. Please leave the papers, loosely divided by slide-on paper clips if you feel it is absolutely necessary, in a simple stack. Application form on the top; sponsorship form next; key personal documents next (birth and marriage certificates etc); formal statutory declarations next; and other supporting documents last.

 

Please do not send us video tapes or photograph albums. If you would like to support your claims with photographs, please choose a representative selection and make a photocopy.

 

Please do not send us phone cards at all as they can tell us nothing. If you wish to send examples of correspondence, please be very selective and send copies only.

I'm in the middle of applying for the 820/801 partner visa. It's been much easier online then the paper application I did for my pmv

From what I've read, you cannot lodge partner visas in person in the Australian DIBP offices. They'll send you to the nearest Australia Post office so you can mail it in. I've heard almost unanimous opinions in favour of online applications vs. paper.
