Hi,

For my spouse skill assessment by ACS , we have submitted an official statutory declaration from her supervisor and also a declaration from her stating as to why she can not provide the reference letter on a company letterhead.

I doubt is that , when I would be submitting the documents to DIAC , for claiming her 5 points , should I send a copy of the statutory declaration from both supervisor and herself.

since the originals , would be with ACS.

Please advice.

DIAC will accept scanned colour copies of all your documents, particularly if you are lodging your application online.

Provided that a document is in colour, copies are acceptable. You only need to provide attested copies for documents that are in black and white.

Hi,

I had one more doubt .. Actually as I have stated in the previous post , I am getting 5 points from my spouse skills for getting eligible for the PR.

Now in my spouse case , she has 3.6 years experience in a IT company and she left her company in the last september..

Now in the service certificate that the company provided bears a column stating the number of days she was on "LEAVE WITHOUT PAY" = 190 DAYS...

Now ACS has not come back to us yet asking clarification about the 190 DAYS leave without pay..
as we have provided stat declaration from the superior.

Our doubt is that , do we have to provide the service certificate .. or since it is not a mandatory document .. we can omit it .. since it would be difficult to prove what duration she was in leave without pay..

Please advice...
Thanks in advance

Hi there, this is actually something new to me. I don't remember reading about this in the visa fact sheet (I might have missed it out though?). Is this really true?

Because this will save a good bit on costs for me! If that's the case, if I got all my official documents in colour copy, does this mean I do not need to certify anything at all?

By the way I'm asking this with respect to the Partner Visa.

For online applications lodged directly with DIAC in Australia, colour scanned copies are acceptable. I can only comment about GSM visas as well as that's what I applied for and was granted.

If you are lodging your application at your local Australian Consulate, then give them a call and ask.

Ok as promised, here's the reply from the Oz Embassy :)

"Thank you for your enquiry.R egardless of the color, the documents to be submitted must be certified. "


I guess for partner visa the requirements are different...
