How many days did it take for you to get the AFP through post. Do they send it on registered post or the normal post?

I got a communication from AFP 8 days back informing me that they are about to send it through AUS post. Im yet to receive the same :(

Appreciate your reply :)

It's been 2 months since AFP has dispatched the letter. Infact, they sent it thrice and I still didn't receive any :(

I applied my AFP check from overseas but it will take ages to reach here at my current address. I was wondering, can I apply again and provide my friend's address in Australia to get the certificate quicker?

You can submit as many applications as you want
You will have to pay the fees again, that’s all

I applied again but hasn't been processed yet as the last one was processed on the vary next day of application. Can I attach my receipt and lodge the application because I will have to apply within 60 days invitation?

Go ahead and apply
You need not attach the pcc at the time of submitting the application compulsorily
You can upload it as when you get it

I still have 50 odd days left for invitation expiry. What do you suggest, should I wait little further or go for next step and apply for the visa?
If I apply, will I be able to attach the document (once it is received) after the submission?

Gone are those days when one should have submitted complete applications to get faster processing
Now it’s better to get in the queue and keep uploading documents as and when you get them
You will be able to attach documents till grant

Thanks for the info.
When I try to push the Next Button at the Documents Checklist page, the following message appears, "NOT ALL REQUIRED DOCUMENTS PROVIDED. THE DEPARTMENT STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT ALL EVIDENCE BE PROVIDED BEFORE SUBMITTING TO ASSIST IN PROCESSING THE APPLICATION".
EXPLAIN WHY THE EVIDENCE CANNOT BE PROVIDED AT THIS TIME.

What should I write in the answer box?

Thanks @NB for the detailed info.
One more query, should I be worried about payslips or bank statements if I have 1 year of overseas experience and not claiming points?
If it has been used towards AQF, there is a rare chance you may be asked for it

What is AQF? I used it for my skill assessment with vetasses
Australian qualifications framework
I have no idea about Vetassess process
ACS generally deducts 2-4 years of experience towards AQF
Cheers
