Advice on uploading documents
The form may need you to upload documents as proof.
You can either scan your documents using a scanner, or photograph them using your phone’s camera.
The best format to upload documents in is PDF.
Read our tips on how to use your phone to create PDFs of your documents. If you do not have access to a scanner or camera phone at home, you may be able to use a scanner at your local Idea Store.

If you are unable to finish the form in one go, you can save your application and finish it later.
Make sure the details you enter into the form are true and accurate. We will assess your application based on the information you give us.
