I am also being required to submit a medical certificate because the "system has determined" that I need to upload one. Of course, med certificates are not required for the application as one was submitted well under 36 months ago with another application. I have not answered any previous questions incorrectly to prompt these upload requirements.

    Anyone got any advice here or is the system just that broken?
    The form seemed to have errors in it for us, had that same medical question asked of us when we shouldn't have had it based on earlier answers.

    Yes, I'm eligible, and have submitted the proper form.

    I also did the alternative form, too and I noticed that the alternative form has less details comparing to the normal form.

    Was trying to phone immigration to confirm if I still have to submit the proper one after submitted the alternative form, because there's no acknowledgement for the alternative form, but as you'd know, it's high call volume so I eventually gave up the call and just submit the proper form anyway.

    But now on the my immigration account, the system is showing the application under the "unsubmitted" tab. (Although I do have a screenshot saying they've received my application.)

    This is chaotic. I also haven't received any acknowledgement emails from INZ apart from a screenshot...

    Just received an email telling me I'm have been principally approved for the 2021 resident visa. Yay.

    It is the second fastest application I've had through INZ (the first one is 2013 Working Holiday Visa)

    However, it's not so clear regarding how to proceed with the next steps.

    In the automated email, which says do no reply, there's an attachment with two instructions, one asks me to reply to "the email" to confirm withdrawing my RTW application; the other one asks me to upload additional document called ‘other correspondence’ from the dropdown list, which is no where to be found.

    Now calling immigration to figure out what should I do net, before sending my passport in.

    (Here're the screenshots from the dropdown list)

    Will let you know what answers I got from immigration.

    Was advised to upload under passport and travel document and email this update to the immigration officer signed the communication PDF.
