Preparing documents for online applications

  • All non-English documents must be translated into English. Contact the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters for a translator.
    Translators outside Australia do not need to be accredited, but they must endorse the translation with their full name, address, telephone number, and details of their qualifications and experience in the language being translated.
  • Scan and attach all documents (English and non-English documents) to your online application.
  • Your documents do not have to be certified.
  • Information about attaching documents is available.
  • Send each document only once. For example, if you are using your dependent’s birth certificate to prove their identity and to prove their relationship to you, only send the certificate once.
