So I had to call them straightaway to double check everything again and they did upload it after.

So my question is will this affect my processing time as I believe no CO was assigned yet because my status is only RECEIVED?

Thank you.

If your agent is a MARA agent, report them to OMARA when everything is done and dusted - unless it was a genuine mistake which has led to the professional lapse.

Another applicant shared how their agent blatantly lied about uploading evidence. What a headache!!

Hard to tell if it will affect your processing time, I'd like to believe that as soon as they notice something is missing they will ask for it - so they have likely not actively looked at your attached documents apart from the requisite ones to make sure you have made a valid application is my guess.

I really hope so too, otherwise they would have asked for those missing documents. That is just what i chose to believe. :fingerscrossed:

CO contact spouse English: 23-Jan-2019

Can you tell what was the spouse english clarification provided to CO please?

Hi,

The spouse english clarification is either the PTE / IELTS scorecard if you have one or the Degree transcript or certificate which would mention the medium of language as English. I too was contacted for the same documents on Nov 23rd and submitted both the above mentioned documents. Waiting!

Hello experts,

Does uploading an updated form 80 and using the Update Us ( Notification of incorrect answer) after visa lodge will have any effect on the timelines.

If they have already started assessing your application based on the current Form 80, potentially yes.

Personally I have submitted two notifications of incorrect answers, and one was to do with information unintentionally omitted from my Form 80 (e.g. the form asks for all post-secondary education, but I only included tertiary and above) - and I seem to have had a CO contact as per normal timelines (for issues completely unrelated to my notifications of incorrect answers).

Hope that helps

Hi All,

Pleased to announce that I and my wife got our grants today! It's a very good feeling as the uncertainty is over and we can plan better. Thanks to this forum as I got a lot of queries answered from this community and a bunch of chuckles over Bandish's predictions :)

Cheers.

Thank you for your reply.

Any idea whether "English medium instruction" letter from college is acceptable for spouse functional english ability? Or does it require to be from the University only? Any past experiences of expat members producing college letter will help.

There was a CO contact for DEC 8 onshore applicant (ANZCO - 261313) reported in Immitracker.

https://myimmitracker.com/au/tracker...ses/case-67566

So seems like the COs are looking into the DEC application as well.
