Submitting Supporting Documents for Visa Applications
Please DO NOT send original documents unless you are requested to do so by your case officer, as they are not required for initial processing of your application. Any original documents sent to the DIBP office in Washington will be immediately returned to your nominated postal address via standard mail.
All copies of your supporting documents, whether lodging online or by paper, should be clear and legible.
Our preferred visa lodgement method is online where available and all supporting documents should be clear scanned copies uploaded to your ImmiAccount. Please click here for further information.
DO NOT send your passport. On 1 September 2015, Australia ceased issuing visa labels to holders of Australian visas. Australian visas are issued and recorded electronically only. Please click here for further information.
