FAQ

Please note: the form supports uploads from desktop browsers only. It will not be possible to upload using a mobile device.

  • My file won’t upload / I receive an error message when I try to upload.

    Please check that your file is the right format/size – refer to pages 65-67 of the Search Statement for information regarding the maximum file size and format limits. Please also note that only one file per field is permitted. 

  • I have not received a reference number.

    When your upload is complete, the form will display a completion screen which will include a unique reference number. If this reference number is not displayed, your upload has not been successful. Should this occur, please shut down your browser entirely, and in a new browser window, upload your submission again. If the error reoccurs, please contact us for further advice. 

  • The upload progress bar appears to be frozen.

    Please allow adequate time for your submission to upload. If your internet connection drops out during the upload, it is possible your upload has not been completed. 

    Please note that the progress bar sometimes displays 0% for several minutes before the upload is completed, and this should not be a cause for concern. If you receive a reference number, your upload has been successful. 

    If after 10 minutes, no progress has been displayed, please exit your browser, open a new window and upload your submission again. If the error reoccurs, please contact us for further advice.
